City of Fernandina Beach

July 15, 2020
At today’s City Commission workshop, Resolution 2020-94 was revised to remove wording regarding social distancing exceptions. It now reads:

Every person over the age of six (6) who is in a public indoor space shall wear a face mask or covering.

Every operator, employee, customer or patron of a business establishment must wear a face mask or covering at all times while indoors at that business establishment or unless wearing a face mask or covering significantly interferes with the provision or receipt of goods or services offered or received at that establishment (i.e. patrons at a restaurant, clients at a barber shop or hair salon, patients at a dentist’s office).

The city maintains a Citizen Notification page which contains a link to the Joint Information System (JIS) notification and a chronological summary.

Nassau County

The county maintains a Corona Virus Updates page with the latest information.

August 10th update – Based on the state order last week, the County Manager released Executive Order 21 today (see attached) which rescinds the travel restrictions and reporting requirements for the New York Tri-State area. This means you can remove any communications (website, email, posters, etc.) related to traveler restrictions and stop reporting the Daily Lodging Log.
