Face Covering Discrimination

Hotline for La Vista’s COVID-19 Mask Ordinance: 402.593.6407 or covidcomplaints@cityoflavista.org.

Not everyone is required to wear a face covering. Some people with disabilities, physical or mental health conditions, and very young people (under 5) are not required to wear face coverings because doing so may cause harm to that person. Although the mask ordinance requiring face coverings has a broad exemption for people with disabilities, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) allows for businesses to provide reasonable accommodations in the form of alternate services (e.g., curbside pickup or delivery instead of in person shopping) for a person who cannot wear a face covering because of a disability.
