Show you care by wearing a mask

Any of us can carry the virus and not realize we’re spreading it when we talk, cough or sneeze. Face coverings are required statewide in all public spaces, because they are effective in slowing the spread of COVID-19, especially when combined with 6 feet of physical distance.

There are three face cover orders in place:

  • Department of Health statewide order directing all individuals to wear a face covering in any indoor public setting or when outdoors and unable to maintain 6 feet of physical distance from others. (effective June 26).
  • governor’s order directing businesses to require and enforce the use of face coverings by all customers or visitors. (Guidance for businesses is here in English and Spanish).
  • requirement for employers to provide appropriate face coverings or masks to all employees who don’t work alone.

Do your part. Please help reduce the risk and keep businesses open. Additional Q&A is available at the state Department of Health.
