  • People who cannot remove a mask on their own
  • Children under the age of 5
  • People who need to remove their masks to communicate due to another person's hearing impairment

 

Masks may be removed temporarily in indoor public places to:

  • Identify the individual wearing the mask
  • Consume food or beverage at a location designated for this purpose
  • Participate in a sport or fitness activity (masks must be worn when not engaged in physical activity)
