Milton requires masks for city employees

Face masks will be a common site around Milton city hall and any other government buildings in the community. The city council Tuesday night approved a plan requiring staff and elected officials to wear a mask in all common areas, when working with the public, or when social distancing is difficult. City Administrator Al Hulick says several departments are already following the practice and the council’s decision simply makes it uniform. He also says several other area communities are following the practice to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
