FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What can we say to individuals who refuse to wear a face covering for non-medical reasons?
A cloth face covering is not intended to protect the wearer but may prevent the spread of virus from the wearer to others. This would be especially important in the event that someone is infected but does not have symptoms. A cloth face covering should be worn whenever people must go into public settings (grocery stores, for example) as a courtesy to others in the community. It is a demonstration of consideration and civil responsibility. The wearing of face coverings also is mandatory per the governor’s Executive Order 63. Refusal to follow the Governors mandate may be punishable as a Class I misdemeanor. Business owners/managers should address the violation with the alleged offender at the time. If you have questions or concerns about the face covering Executive Order, call 1-877-ASK-VDH3. Do NOT call the Fairfax County Health Department or the public safety non-emergency number about compliance with the governor’s executive order for face coverings.
