COVID-19 Updates / County Issues Face Covering Order
Dear Members,

On July 21, the Collier County Commission issued an emergency order requiring face coverings in indoor public spaces. Last week, the Commission failed to enact such an order. Stay tuned for FAQs to help understand the requirements.

Note that this order currently only applies to unincorporated portions of the county, and not the municipalities of Naples, Marco Island, and City of Everglades. Local officials have the opportunity to opt-in to this order. We encourage you to contact council members to ask them to participate. Naples City Council | Marco Island City Council | Everglades City Council (click on "contact").

If you have not already, we also ask physicians to sign our physicians' petition, and for the general public to sign this public petition, both requesting a mask mandate, which could help demonstrate support to these local officials .
