Everyone 2 and older is required to wear a mask/face covering except when eating/drinking (must be stationary) or swimming. The mask or face covering must be made with at least two layers of breathable material, fit snugly against the side of your face and under your chin, be secured with ties or ear loops and must fully cover your nose and mouth.

Both are usually made of three or four layers of non-woven fabric, with one of the middle layers a melt-blown polymer that acts as a filter, and both are intended to be disposed of after use.
