The City of Olivette has received questions concerning the wearing of face masks in the parks, particularly near playgrounds. Masks are required when one is unable to maintain a social distance. The mandate is in accordance with the Saint Louis County Department of Public Health order requiring Members of the Public and Employees to Wear Face Coverings, dated August 21, 2020, and effective August 24, 2020. These guidelines require businesses to enforce the order.
Please be mindful when gathering at playgrounds and wear a mask when near others. City staff will ask persons violating the Health Order to distance themselves or move to a less busy park. If you have any questions about mask violations, please direct your inquiries to the St. Louis County Department of Public Health. For general questions or concerns call 877-435-8411.
