Beginning Saturday, everyone working at or visiting a business will be required to wear a mask in Oxford.

According to the Oxford Eagle, the city updated their emergency order today. Businesses must monitor all points of interest and prohibit those not wearing a mask from entering their establishment. If businesses are not following the ordinance, they could be issued a ticket and subsequent fine from a municipal judge. 

According to Oxford Mayor Robyn Tannehill, the city adopted the ordinance because city residents called government officials to complain of people in stores not adhering to proper social distancing guidelines and not wearing masks. 

The order will remain in effect until May 18.
