Can a business refuse entry to me if I'm not wearing a face mask?

Yes, they can refuse entry or service. However, businesses should attempt to provide customers with reasonable accommodation, such as curbside pickup or the shipping of items.

Isn’t refusing entry discrimination? The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) allows restrictions when an individual would pose a direct threat to the health and safety of others. As of March 2020, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has declared that the COVID-19 pandemic meets the direct threat standard.
