Tarrant County issued an order on Tuesday that extends the mask order through Nov. 30.

In addition, City Council further extended Mayor Price’s executive order for the city’s mask requirement through Dec. 1.

Businesses are required to adopt a Health and Safety Policy that requires employees and patrons to wear face coverings. Businesses that don’t comply could face a fine of up to $500.

The order does not include churches, which are exempt under a previous order by Gov. Greg Abbott.

Besides wearing face coverings, residents are asked to maintain social distancing of at least six feet from others when they’re outside of their own homes.
