Marylanders required to wear face coverings

A reminder that all Marylander’s are now required to use face covers while in essential retail locations, such as grocery stores and pharmacies, or while on public transportation. This order applies to both employees and customers in these locations. All businesses must post signs indicating face coverings are required before entry and while inside.
 
Face coverings must fully cover a person’s nose and mouth. Face coverings may include scarves and bandanas.
 
The wearing of medical grade masks is discouraged as they are needed for medical and frontline teams.
 
These face coverings are designed to protect those around you should you have the virus but are asymptomatic.
Social distancing and frequent handwashing are also still needed to protect yourself and your family.
