Source: City of Selma

Selma Mayor Darrio Melton has issued an executive order requiring face masks to be worn in public. The order will take effect on Saturday, June 27, at 5 p.m. until further notice.

The details of the order are similar to those issued by Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed last week.

People in Selma over the age of two who can medically tolerate wearing a face mask must do so when in public and in groups of 10 people or more, including in situations involving employees, customers or clients.

Masks must be worn outdoors when in groups of 10 people or more when a six-foot social distance cannot be maintained.

Masks do not have to be worn inside a home or car, when exercising, alone in a workplace with adequate social distancing, while receiving medical or dental treatment, or eating/drinking at a restaurant or bar.

The fine for violations is $25.
