A Message from Mike Cully, LOC Executive Director

At the onset of this COVID-19 crisis we knew life was going to be dramatically different for the forseeable future. We also knew our cities needed answers and leadership in a way the LOC had not shown before. You can count on the LOC to be your North Star. On behalf of the LOC staff and its amazing board of directors, our mission and vision is clear: to assure our cities are supported at the highest level.

We are here for you. Please do not hesitate to reach out and connect with us.

Question of the Week

What should a business owner tell a customer who is not wearing a face covering?

Answer from the OHA: If your business is requiring face coverings and has posted clear signs as required under the Mask and Face Covering Guidance, you can ask the individual politely if they cannot wear a face covering because of a medical condition or disability. If they answer yes, then you should not require them to wear a face covering. It is not appropriate or allowed to ask an individual what their medical condition is or to make them provide proof of their medical condition or disability. If they answer no, then consider politely offering them a face covering, provide them with other options (e.g., online shopping) to find what they need, or ask them to come back with a face covering.
