Plano businesses would have to require guests, employees to wear masks under proposed city ordinance



PLANO, TX – Businesses in Plano would be required to make their employees and visitors wear masks under a proposed city ordinance that will be considered this week.

Plano City Council on June 29 called an emergency meeting for June 30 to discuss and vote on the ordinance, which is similar to an order adopted more than a week ago in Dallas County.

Under the proposed language, businesses that provide goods and services to the public would have to adopt a health and safety policy that would require face coverings in areas where 6 feet of separation is not feasible.

Plano businesses would also have to post a notice informing employees and guests of the rule “in a conspicuous location.”
