Collier County Mask Order Set to Expire Oct. 22nd

The emergency order issued by Collier County Commissioners that requires facial coverings while indoors in unincorporated parts of the county is set to expire next Thursday, Oct. 22nd. The CCMS Board of Directors and members of the CCMS COVID-19 Task Force have reviewed issues such as the efficacy of masks, the upcoming season, the phase 3 openings in Florida, and the rates of COVID cases and deaths, and recommended the commissioners extend this order.

To call or email the Commissioners to share your thoughts on extending the mask order, visit the Commission webpage for contact information. The next scheduled Commission meeting is Oct. 29th, therefore a special meeting is required in order to prevent a lapse in the order.

Collier County is again dispersing funds received from the Coronavirus Relief portion of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act federal stimulus package. Please call (239) 252-8999 or dial 311 within Collier County, for more information. Note: If you already received CollierCARES funds, but wish to revise your application, please contact your Grant Coordinator directly.
