ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – The St. Johns County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday voted to require masks inside county-controlled buildings only.
The vote was 3-1. The lone no vote was Commissioner Jeb Smith.
The requirement of masks inside county-controlled buildings goes into effect immediately. It will become part of the emergency order already in place.
Last month, county commissioners declined to take up a mandatory indoor mask policy.
In St. Augustine, face coverings are required inside businesses and other buildings open to the public.
Masks are also mandatory in St. Augustine Beach.
