In response to city inquiries, GMA has drafted the attached model policy for requiring city employees and others visiting city buildings to wear face coverings when inside city buildings. GMA is not taking a position as to whether your city should choose to require face coverings in city buildings. However, for those cities that are considering such protective measures, we suggest you consider this model policy. If you choose to use it, we encourage you to adapt it to your own unique circumstances. As with all matters, we encourage you to seek the guidance of your City Attorney before adopting this or another policy requiring face coverings.
