State and local health orders may require face masks to be worn at particular facilities. Even where not required by law or a public health order, private businesses may maintain a workplace health and safety policy requiring the use of face masks on premises.
The CDC recommends use of its COVID-19 Community Levels tool to help businesses determine what prevention steps to take, including implementing a masking requirement, based on the latest data.
- At all community levels, individuals may choose to wear mask at any time and businesses may require wearing face masks on the business’ premises.
- Where the community risk level is high, the CDC recommends that vaccinated and unvaccinated people wear masks in public indoor settings and by individuals who are at high risk of contracting or experiencing severe illness symptoms.
Other benefits include:
- Face mask help prevent people who infected with a communicable illness and do not know it from transmitting the illness to others.
- Face masks worn by healthy people helps protect them from contracting communicable illnesses from carriers.
