Dublin City Manager Dana McDaniel has issued an executive order mandating the wearing of face coverings starting today. 

The order states  the city wants to prevent further economic disaster by combating the spread of COVID-19. Violators could face a third-degree misdemeanor charge. Exemptions are for people with a medical or mental health condition or developmental disability, people engaging in strenuous exercise activities; people playing sports in compliance with safety guidelines; children under the age of 6; and for those with religious objections.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
