Our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19 and the changes amidst a pandemic we all have endured for longer than anticipated. We are consistently impressed and inspired by the way the Oxford community has come together during this trying time, from sharing supportive messages online to businesses offering free meals for kids. Our town is a special one and we know that together we're not only going to get through this, but we'll also come out even stronger. In about 90 seconds, let us show you how our small business owners adapted from the beginning here.
Below we've listed some additional information to give you a better idea of what Enjoy Oxford is doing during this time and how our community keeps safety a priority. The City of Oxford passed a new face-covering ordinance (applies while indoors only) initially on August 30, 2021, effective through December 13, 2021. On January 18th, 2022, the Oxford City Council re-instated the Face Mask Ordinance effective until March 1, 2022.
Face masks are required indoors in all public spaces. When possible, the ordinance asks that individuals wear CDC recommended masks including 3 ply surgical masks, KN 95 masks, and N 95 masks. When those masks cannot be used, a cloth mask is allowable.
Some exemptions to this ordinance include:

City Council also passed a resolution encouraging all residents to get vaccinated. Read more about where you can find a vaccine and learn more about our community's response to covid-19.
Miami University still does require masks on campus. Please visit Miami University COVID-19 Campus Updates for their requirements.
