grounding a metal outlet box

Does code require a separate grounding wire for a metal box containing a 50 amp 220 volt receptacle, even though it's already grounded through the metal cover attached directly to the receptacle ground?

Yes. The ground wires need to be connected together and pigtailed to the box using a 10-32 machine screw in a tapped hole.
