Face Coverings

Mask Requirements

During Phase 2.5, which went into effect July 1, 2020,  the use of masks covering the nose and mouth will be required while in a public indoor space including workplaces, businesses, schools, places of worship and public facilities such as community centers or libraries. Masks may be removed in restaurants and bars when individuals are actively eating or drinking but must be worn at all other times.

Additionally, masks must be used while utilizing public transportation, ride-sharing services or taxis. Masks are also required in public outdoor spaces when social distancing of 6ft cannot absolutely be guaranteed.
