The Governor’s extended Stay-at-Home Order through May 30th requires everyone over the age of 2 and able to medically tolerate a face covering, to cover their nose and mouth “when in a public place and unable to maintain a six-foot social distance. Face coverings are required in public indoor spaces such as stores.”

Individuals with a medical condition that precludes them from wearing a face covering will be exempt.
