TAMPA – The Hillsborough County Emergency Policy Group is set to vote on a mask mandate today at 1:30 p.m.
If the vote passes, employees and customers would be required to wear a mask inside businesses. The ordinance would not require people to wear a mask outside.
During the EPG meeting last Thursday, the EPG voted 5-3 to have the county attorney draft a ‘mask mandate ordinance’.
This vote comes the following week after mask mandates took effect in the city of Tampa and the city of St. Petersburg.
The Emergency Planning Group will meet at 1:30 p.m and you can watch it live here.
