Body

Summary:

The current ordinance is set to expire at the end of December.  Based on threshold metrics an extension is warranted of the ordinance regulating bars, restaurants, salons, retail and requires face coverings for indoor businesses and indoor public spaces.  Brookings is in substantial spread with all triggers met to some degree.  Staff recommends renewal of the existing ordinance.

 

Background:

On October 27th City Council renewed the existing 20-028 ordinance that requires bars, restaurants, casinos, grocery, retail, and fitness businesses to operate at half capacity and all employees are required to wear face coverings at all times.  The ordinance has other requirements outlined.
