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 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.

- 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.
