On April 18, following the lead of Dallas County, the City of Coppell further amended its 'Safer at Home' Emergency Orders to include a requirement that all residents wear a mask or some form of covering over their nose and mouth while in public. The Order also specifies fabric stores as essential businesses. Unless otherwise specified, the amended Orders will remain in place through 11:59 p.m. on April 30, 2020.
"It may feel a little strange to see people in public with faces covered, but please continue to be diligent," said Mayor Karen Hunt. "We continue to follow the recommendations of the CDC and requiring residents to wear a mask in public is part of that. Our first responders are dedicated to educating and protecting the community, not citing residents. We aren't going to throw you in jail if you don't, but we need everyone to do their part – wear a mask if you go out in public. If you are going someplace where might be difficult to maintain social distancing OR a place where you are going to be around strangers, doesn't it make sense to take the extra measure of wearing a mask to be safe for you and your family? All believe we have been successful in our efforts to flatten the curve and slow the spread of the virus. Thank you for your dedication, and please continue to stay strong!"
