Masking

Statewide, masks are required to be worn by all individuals at all times unless the individual:

  • Is at their own residence.
  • Is in their own personal vehicle, except when going through a drive-thru or if interacting with an individual outside the vehicle, such as at a gas station.
  • Is under five (5) years of age; or is under two (2) years of age and using public transportation or in transportation hubs.
  • Is eating or drinking.
  • Is engaged in an activity that makes wearing a mask, face-covering or face shield not feasible, such as when taking a shower.
  • Is sleeping.
  • Is in a private, individual workspace.
  • Must remove the mask, face coverings or face shield briefly because the individual’s identity needs to be confirmed by visual comparisons, such as at a bank or if interacting with law enforcement. If possible, individuals should limit speaking while the mask, face-covering, or face shield is off as speaking generates aerosols and droplets that can contain viruses.
  • Is fully vaccinated, or is at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease and is with others who are fully vaccinated, in accordance with the following:
    • In private indoor or outdoor settings, individuals who are fully vaccinated and individuals who are not vaccinated but are at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease, may visit without masks and without physical distancing.

Your best protection from COVID-19 will be a combination of getting a COVID-19 vaccine, wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, avoiding crowds in poorly ventilated spaces, and washing your hands often. No one tool alone is going to stop the pandemic.
