As we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our employees, clients, and community, while ensuring that we are following the guidance and direction of federal, state and local entities including the CDC and local health departments. It is critical that we continue to make adjustments in our business and the way of working within our organization.
Effective immediately all employees, clients and visitors are required to wear face masks and/or face coverings while visiting and conducting business with the JH. This is inclusive of all offices and facilities of the authority.
Effective 5 p.m. Monday, June 29, 2020 Mayor Lenny Curry has issued a mandate for the city of Jacksonville to wear masks in all "public and indoor" locations in Duval County. If the client or visitor is younger than 6 years of age, has difficulty breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cover without assistance he or she is not required to wear a mask. We will ensure that all employees, clients and visitors adhere to this guidance and direction provided by our Mayor.
