Masks are required statewide at all times unless you are:

  • At your own residence.
  • In your own personal vehicle.
  • Under five (5) years of age.
  • Eating or drinking.
  • Engaged in an activity that makes wearing a mask, face covering or face shield not feasible, such as when taking a shower.
  • Sleeping.
  • In a private, individual workspace.
  • Removing the mask briefly because your identity needs to be confirmed by visual comparison, such as at a bank or if interacting with law enforcement.

If you have a medical condition that makes it hard to breathe or a disability that prevents you from wearing a mask, you can request an accommodation from the business or venue or transit authority.​

OHA does not recommend wearing a plastic face shield alone. While face shields can be very good at blocking droplets, they are not as good at stopping aerosols that can go around the shield. OHA recommends face shields only be used on a limited basis, for example when talking to someone who is deaf or hard of hearing and needs to read lips to communicate.
