Face Masks

Face masks are required when riding public transportation and in healthcare and COVID-19 testing facilities. In other settings, the choice to wear a face mask is a personal one, and no one should be made to feel uncomfortable because of their choice. It is well established that wearing a mask while indoors reduces the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. Individuals who are concerned about the risk of infection are encouraged to continue to wear a mask, and we ask that all members of our community support and respect one another’s masking choices. Vaccination remains the best protection against serious illness and we urge those who have not yet been vaccinated or boosted to do so.

Approved masks include masks with any of the following certifications: ASTM (procedure or surgical), KN95, FFP2, KF94 or NIOSH N95. Cloth masks are not approved unless worn in conjunction with an ASTM medical mask.

Observe these additional precautions when in spaces and circumstances that require masks::

  • Minimize your time unmasked
  • Minimize unmasked conversations
  • If in groups, minimize the group size
