In any indoor location where the public is gathered.
Waiting for or riding on public transportation.

Any workplace where interaction with the public occurs.
Exemptions are made for those with medical conditions or for whom a mask would create an unsafe working condition. Additionally, those under two years of age are not permitted to wear a mask.
