  • The requirement of a face covering does not apply if covering the nose and mouth poses a significant mental or physical health risk to the individual. 
  • Face coverings include masks, scarves, bandannas or a handkerchief. And residents are asked to maintain social distancing of at least six feet from others when not in their own homes.
  • At restaurants people should wear a mask when walking in and keep it on until they are seated. Then they can take the mask off. But if they get up to walk around, or go to the restroom, they should put the mask back on, officials said.
  • Face coverings include masks, scarves, bandannas or a handkerchief.
