Covid-19: Face-Covering Requirement Inside All City Buildings

Delta Variant Transmission Has Led to Concern

Face coverings are now mandatory for all visitors to Rockville facilities, as the city continues its efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19. The requirement applies to all staff and visitors aged 2 and older, whatever their vaccination status.

City staff and the Mayor and Council continue to review city protocols as health guidance and conditions evolve daily, and will adjust requirements for city facilities accordingly.

Rockville’s boards and commissions will continue to meet remotely, as will the Mayor and Council. No date has been set for the reopening of City Hall.

Rockville City Manager Rob DiSpirito announced the policy “out of an abundance of caution for health, safety and better peace of mind for all.”

The Montgomery County Council approved a regulation on Aug. 5 reinstating face coverings in public indoor areas when the county reaches “substantial” COVID-19 transmission. The county face-covering requirement took effect Aug. 7.
