PELHAM, Alabama -- After reviewing the Governor's State of Emergency issued August 13, 2021, and assessing the situation regarding the community spread of COVID-19, the decision has been made to require masks in city-owned facilities when proper social distancing (6 feet) cannot be achieved.
For sporting events, we will follow previous guidelines put in place by the state: individuals participating in sporting activities may be unmasked; however, as soon as they come off the playing space, masks must be worn if players can not be six feet apart. This applies to indoor sports only.
For large meetings, either private or public, social distancing of six feet will be implemented. In situations where this is not possible, masks will be required at all times.
