Sandy Springs Mask Law: What you need to know

Sandy Springs city council has passed a face mask law that will remain in effect until the rate of confirmed COVID-19 cases drops below 100 per 100,000 residents.

It's doesn't mean you have to wear a face mask 24/7 just in "public places"and it must cover a person’s nose and mouth.

What is considered a "Public place?" According to the ordinance it is "any place other than a personal vehicle or residential property."

There are some exemptions. Business owners can exempt their stores from the requirement by posting a sign that says “This location does not require the use of masks or facial coverings upon this property.” Businesses not visited by members of the public are also exempt like an office.

People with a “bona fide religious objection,” children under 10, and anyone trying to vote are also exempt.
