ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. (WCJB) - Alachua County’s order requiring businesses to display signs informing customers face masks are required is officially in effect.

The county says signs need to be 11 inches by 17 inches.

If a businesses printer does not support that size they are allowed to use a smaller sign until a larger one can be made.

The county is providing a link to download two versions of the posters.

One sign design is for retail businesses, and the other is for restaurants and bars where people can take their masks off while eating or drinking.

“The citations for the first offense are $125, second offense $250, third offense $500 dollars, and a court appearance,” said Alachua County spokesman Mark Sexton.

Code enforcement officers will be going to businesses with the most complaints reminding customers to wear a mask.

Alachua county has received more than 700 reported mask complaints since April.
