South Burlington businesses required to post mask signage

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) South Burlington businesses as of Monday are required to post signage requiring face coverings. It's part of the city's mandatory mask policy approved by the City Council last month.

The measure requires customers, employees and visitors entering city-owned facilities and public establishments and businesses to wear a face-covering or respirator that covers at least their mouth and nose. Businesses are required to have proper warning signs up.

The rule lasts until the state's emergency order expires or until the council votes otherwise.

South Burlington, Burlington, Brattleboro and Montpelier are among municipalities with similar mask rules.
