Face Masks Requirement for the City of La Vista

Any individual or entity which maintains premises open to the general public, including but not limited to educational institutions, shall require all individuals age 5 and older to wear a face covering over their mouth and nose while indoors unless the individual maintains at least 6 feet of separation at all times from anyone who is not their household member.

Face coverings will not be required if the individual:

  • is seeking federal, state, county, or city governmental services;
  • is seated at a bar or restaurant to eat or drink, or while immediately consuming food or beverages;
  • is engaged in an occupation preventing the wearing of a face covering;
  • is obtaining a service or purchasing goods or services that requires the temporary removal of the face covering;
  • is asked to remove a face covering to verify an identity for lawful purposes;
  • is providing a speech, lecture, or broadcast to an audience so long as six (6) feet of distancing from other individuals is maintained; or
  • cannot otherwise wear a face covering because of a medical condition, a mental health condition, or a disability that makes it unreasonable for the individual to wear a face covering.

Residents are not required to wear face coverings outdoors, but it is highly recommended if social distancing isn't possible. This order will go into effect December 2, 2020 and will extend until February 23, 2021.
