The Board of Health strongly advises all individuals to wear a mask indoors and in all public areas if they have a weakened immune system, are at risk for severe disease, or are unvaccinated.
Masks should fit properly over the nose and mouth. A surgical mask is recommended with KN95 and N95 masks providing further protection.
Masks are readily available to order online, and in pharmacy and grocery stores.
