OCHCA Issues Updated Face Covering Order

Effective as of Thursday, May 28, the Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHCA) issued a new order and strong recommendations to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Part of the order updates the use of face coverings. 

According to the order, “All Orange County residents and visitors shall wear a cloth face-covering outside their home when they are not able to maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from another person who is not a family/household member or does not reside in the same living unit.

“A cloth face covering … covers the nose and mouth; it can be secured to the head with ties or straps or simply wrapped around the lower face; it can be made of a variety of materials, such as cotton, silk or linen; and … may be factory made or sewn by hand, or can be improvised from household items such as scarfs, T-shirts, sweatshirts or towels.”
