Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods speaks during a press conference in Ocala, Fla., in 2018. Woods sent an email Tuesday informing the approximately 900 people working in the department that "when you are on-duty/working as my employee and representing my Office – masks will not be worn," the Ocala Star-Banner reports.

Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods says that “effective immediately, any individual walking in to any one of our lobbies … wearing a mask will be asked to remove it.”
