When DO I need to wear a face mask?

All employees or visitors to any indoor public accommodation must wear face coverings in an area or while performing an activity which will necessarily involve close contact or proximity to co-workers or the public where six feet of separation is not feasible or cannot be maintained.

These spaces include, but are not limited to:

  • Grocery and other retail stores
  • Special events
  • Public transit
  • Places of worship
  • Libraries
  • Community centers
  • Medical offices
  • Schools/daycares
  • Any business open and accessible to the public (non-employees)

Although not required, it is also highly encouraged to wear a mask outdoors anytime a distance of six or more feet cannot be maintained. This could include parks, playgrounds, bus stops, farmers markets, and public restrooms.

CDC guidance strongly recommends that children over age two wear face coverings.
