FLORENCE, Ala. – The Florence City Council passed a mask resolution during a meeting on Tuesday.

Everyone visiting buildings owned by the city will be required to wear a facial covering.

Mayor Steve Holt said this was due to an increase in COVID-19 numbers in Florence.

“The numbers continue to grow,” the mayor said. “Our numbers today hit 501 so we’ve surpassed that 500 mark. In terms of the other counties, we’re doing about average, about normal, but we don’t want it to grow. We don’t want it to spike on us, and so we need to keep paying attention with those basic things. Just keep your six-foot distancing, constantly wash your hands, wear a mask—use a face covering.”
