SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. – Facial coverings are once again required at all city departments, following Robertson County's reinstatement of the mask mandate. Saturday, Robertson County Mayor Billy Vogle reinstated the mandate for all Robertson County residents requiring facial coverings to slow the spread of COVID-19. Pursuant to Gov. Bill Lee’s Executive Order, Robertson County Mayor Vogle has the authority to issue COVID-19 facial covering requirements. As stated in Robertson County Mayor Vogle’s order, face masks are required in Robertson County effective Saturday, November 7 at 11:59pm. This mandate is set to expire on November 30 unless canceled or extended.
. Pursuant to exemption #10 in Mayor Vogle’s order, visitors to the lobby area of Springfield City Hall conducting short-term business (utility payments, etc.) will not be denied access for failing to wear a facial covering due to the various provisions the city has made in the lobby area to allow for consistent social distancing. However, facial coverings will be required for visitors proceeding past the lobby area and those who are conducting business such as attending meetings or obtaining permits.
