Mayor Bo Dorough Announces Mask Mandate Back in Place

Mayor Dorough made the announcement this morning during the COVID-19 news conference. He stated that the Mask Up Ordinance (20-112) is in place again due to cases exceeding the threshold of 100 cases per 100,000 population.

In September 2020, the Mayor and City Commissioners approved a mask ordinance for citizens to wear face masks or face coverings in public to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The City adopted a City-wide face-covering Ordinance and Resolution setting policy for face coverings in City buildings.

Facial coverings or masks are not required in the following circumstances:

* While you are in your car or at home;

* When a person is alone in enclosed spaces or only with other household members;

* When the individual has a bona fide religious objection to wearing a facial covering or mask;

* While drinking or eating;

* When a licensed healthcare provider has determined that wearing a facial covering or mask causes or aggravates a health condition for the individual or when such person has a bona fide medical reason for not wearing a facial covering or mask;

* When wearing a facial covering or mask would prevent the receipt of personal services or performing work in the course of employment;

* When complying with the directions of a law enforcement officer or to verify a person’s identity, such as when purchasing alcohol, to***co, or prescription drugs or when engaging in a financial transaction;

* Children under the age of ten (10) years;

* When the individual is having difficulty donning or removing a face mask or face covering without assistance;

* At any polling place and no individual shall be denied ingress or egress to or from a polling place for failure to wear a facial covering or mask; and

* When outdoors and maintaining social distancing from anyone other than individuals with whom they cohabitate or keeping social distancing of at least six feet from others.

BLACK HISTORY = ALBANY HISTORY: One way to keep history alive is to keep on making it. That's what King Randall is doing through his youth mentorship program, targeted at at-risk young black men in the Albany community. The "X" for Boys is "a man-making machine," teaching young men ages 11-17 not only basic life skills such as how to change oil and tires on a car, but also personal development skills such as anger management and accountability, which Randall says is a core quality of his program with the boys learning to keep not only themselves accountable, but their friends as well. The ultimate vision for "The X" is to develop a fully-accredited life prepratory boarding school for young men in the Albany area looking to take their potential to the next level.

BLACK HISTORY = ALBANY HISTORY: There can be no discussion on black history in Albany without the inclusion of Martin Luther King, who came to the city in 1961 to jump start what is famously known as “The Albany Movement,” where he helped rally the region to the cause of civil rights. Dr. King’s visit was so highly anticipated, it drew more attendants than could fit in a single space, which led him to run back and forth between Old Mt. Zion Baptist and Shiloh Baptist Churches several times over, delivering the same speech, in order to address each packed-out congregation. During the subsequent Albany March, MLK was jailed in Albany, alongside many other activists from the area. Today, the legend of MLK and the Albany Movement lives on through the Albany Civil Rights Institute, located in @downtownalbanygeorgia, adjacent to the two churches where MLK delivered his famous, mobilizing speeches to Albany activists. #OnlyOneAlbany #AlbanyGA #TheGoodLifeCity #TheGLC #ILoveABY #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackHistoryIsAlbanyHistory
