Terms of the order include:

  • Applying to anyone 8 or older in indoor public spaces, commercial entities or transportation services, or outside public spaces when people cannot socially distance.
  • Requiring mask use in schools for Grade 3 and higher, and for faculty and staff, volunteers and anyone in schools. Masks also will be required for co-curricular and extracurricular activities, with exceptions for strenuous physical activity.
  • Exceptions for medical purposes, strenuous physical activity, eating, and drinking.
  • Masks are strongly recommended for ages 2-7.
Masks or other face coverings can be factory-made, sewn by hand, or improvised from household items such as scarfs, bandanas and T-shirts. The mouth and nose should be covered. Failure to wear a mask under the order will be a Class B misdemeanor.
