McBee passes face mask requirement
McBee Town Council unanimously passed an emergency ordinance at yesterday’s meeting requiring everyone to wear a face mask in all food service and retail establishments within the McBee town limits.
Exemptions include religious objections, directions from law enforcement, children 16 and under accompanied by adults, people with medical issues and private individual offices.
The ordinance goes into effect at noon Friday, July 17. Anyone in violation of this mandate faces a fine of up to $50 for each occurrence. However, deputies who patrol McBee will not enforce this ordinance because it is neither a county ordinance nor a state law.
