Resources and Recommendations

As of April 19, the CDC order requiring masks on public transportation and at transportation hubs is no longer in effect. However, masks remain an important tool for reducing the transmission of COVID-19, especially with the emergence of more contagious variants. The Department of Health recommends people age five and over wear masks in crowded indoor settings and confined spaces. Our guidance documents will be updated soon. Thank you for your patience.
