What if my business is privately owned?

All business and buildings open and accessible to the general public qualify as an “indoor public accommodation” regardless of if they are public or privately owned. These businesses should adhere to the order to require masks when social distancing cannot be maintained.

Masks are not required in business/commercial/office settings that have limited or no public accessibility and when employees are consistently six or more feet away from others. In this case, masks would only be required when employees are moving around within the building and when within six feet of someone else.
