NYC COVID-19 Face Coverings FAQs

On July 13, 2020, the New York City Department of Health released frequently asked questions about face coverings and directed New Yorkers to wear a face covering whenever they are with other people when they are indoors, not at home, even if six feet of distance can be maintained. The FAQs also address what a face covering is, who must wear a face covering, and their use in the workplace. Of note, these recommendations may change as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves.
