To limit the spread of COVID-19, both the Californa Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that members of the public wear a cloth face masks or covering while out in public. The Riverbank City Council approved a Resolution at the Riverbank City Council Meeting on April 28, 2020; strongly recommending that City residents and visitors comply with the recommendations from the California Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to wear face masks or coverings that cover the nose and mouth while out in public.
We are all aware of the shortage of personal protection equipment so the Resolution discourages the use of N-95 masks or medical grade equipment and instead recommends cloth/ fabric face masks or coverings.
It is important to understand that this Resolution states that it is strongly recommended but it does NOT state that it is mandatory to wear a face mask in the City of Riverbank. Our City leaders are cognizant of the fact that face coverings are in short supply and many in our community may not have access to them.
Please note that individual businesses can make their own requirements as they see appropriate. Some of which may require face coverings while inside their store. It is important to remember that face coverings are not a replacement for social distancing and handwashing.
