Effective September 4, 2021, at 8 a.m. face coverings will be mandatory for all indoor public spaces and workplaces. Employees must wear a face covering in all indoor work settings, except in work stations.

Face covering use is not required if:

Schools are not required to implement masking, but school boards will continue to set COVID-19 management policies as deemed appropriate.
