Wear a Mask

Coronavirus spreads when an infected person speaks, sneezes, or coughs within 6 feet of others. You may have the virus and spread it even if you feel well. To prevent infection, you must cover your nose and mouth when outside your home. Wearing a mask is now required statewide. Californians are required to wear face coverings when going into public spaces, including indoors or when physical distancing is not possible. For more information, visit gov.ca.gov.
