Governor's Guidance for Wearing Face Masks in Public - Updated

Governor Baker issued an Order effective November 6, 2020 requiring face masks or cloth face coverings in in all public places, even where they are able to maintain 6 feet of distance from others.

The revised order still allows for an exception for residents who cannot wear a face-covering due to a medical or disabling condition, but it allows employers to require employees to provide proof of such a condition. It also allows schools to require that students participating in in-person learning provide proof of such a medical or disabling condition.
