A new executive order was issued Monday, April 5th 2021 that repealed the previous emergency order that required facemasks at indoor locations throughout Pasco County.
Pasco County Government is recommending the continued use of face coverings in most indoor public places where social distancing cannot be maintained; however, effective immediately, face coverings are no longer required by law.
Pasco county said that in deciding to relax face covering requirements, Pasco County weighed several factors, including lower COVID19 hospitalization rates and increasing vaccination rates.
Private businesses still control their own policy.
It’s important to note that most businesses are private property and they can set whatever policy they wish as far as mask requirements and other safety regulations. Any private business still has the right to refuse entry to a person who chooses not to follow their policies. most major retailers plan to continue to require masks., but this is now based on their own decision and not required by Pasco County Florida.
