Last week, the Chamblee City Council passed a resolution “urging” residents to wear face coverings in public. The city is currently considering an ordinance that would go a step further and mandate face coverings, with a fine of up for $75 for violating the order. It could be voted on and passed next month.
Most of DeKalb County is now under a mask mandate, after the county passed a similar revised order Tuesday that applies to unincorporated DeKalb. The cities of Dunwoody, Brookhaven, Doraville and Decatur have also implemented mask mandates.
