Mask mandates, enforcement begin today

Mask mandates are in effect starting today. The mandates will be enforced by Washington County Health and Human Services staff. 

The Board of Commissioners approved a new rule at its Aug. 24 meeting authorizing staff to enforce the mandates. Violations are a Class C Civil infraction, with a fine of up to $500 per day for businesses. Read the media release

The Board’s action is in response to the increase in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.

“The evidence is clear and compelling,” said Kathryn Harrington, Board Chair. “Our community is in a dire situation and the Board has taken decisive action to ensure that all Washington County residents are protected from exposure to COVID-19 in public settings.


“The good news is that we have two powerful tools to fight the Delta variant surge. Mask wearing and vaccinations are absolutely the best ways to protect one another—especially our children and those with underlying health conditions that prevent them from getting the vaccine. We must all act with urgency to save lives and eliminate needless suffering.”
