Can a business be cited for not requiring face coverings?

The mandate requires individuals to wear a face covering in public when 6-feet of physical distancing isn’t possible, and a public place is defined as any place open to the public, either indoors and outdoors, such as a retail business, government office, etc. Individuals can be cited for not wearing a face covering, but business owners/managers cannot be cited for not enforcing the City’s ordinance. If the business can ensure that 6-feet of physical distancing is available and utilized at all times by patrons, the ordinance would not apply inside that business.
