Byhalia enacts mask order
The Town of Byhalia has passed an executive order requiring persons wear clean face coverings if they will be near others in indoor public or business spaces
The order took effect this past Saturday, July 11.
It will run for a period of 15 days (through July 26) unless extended by a motion and order of the mayor and board of aldermen.
Social distancing is also emphasized.
The order refers to the fact that the number of cases of COVID-19 in the state continues to rise, and there exists a continued threat to the public's safety.
Face coverings are not required for outdoor activities; private residences; religious ceremonies; people who cannot wear a face covering due to a medical condition; restaurant patrons while dining; private offices with fewer than 10 employees; settings where it is not feasible to wear a face covering, such as receiving dental services or salon services; banks or other spaces where physical barrier partitions prohibit contact between customers and employees; and children under 12 years old.
Signage should be posted at entrances to businesses stating the face covering requirement for entry.

The City of Holly Springs is operating under an executive order requiring face masks, as well.
