Winter Garden reinstated its mask mandate for city employees, effective Monday, Jan. 3, 2022.

The change is in response to a rise in COVID-19 cases caused by the Omicron variant.

"With the infection rate increasing, we are taking some steps to control the spreading of it," Commissioner Ron Mueller said of the mandate.

The city's change comes just days after Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings instituted a similar one for county employees in county buildings.
