Starting today (Tuesday), face coverings in the Bay Area will be mandatory in the following counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Sonoma Counties. You have to cover your nose and mouth while in public, especially when you are unable to maintain proper social distancing.
Anyone over the age of 12 are required to wear a face covering and children who are younger are not required to wear them.
Masks should be worn anytime you are around people, outside of your home but especially when you are interacting with an essential service like taking transit or going to the grocery store.
If you're traveling in your car or if you're traveling with an immediate household member, you don't need to cover your face.
When you are out walking, running walking a dog, that is not a requirement for a face covering.
If you exercise outdoors or take your dog for a walk, carry it with you.
Officials say the more people that wear masks, the safer our places can be and the closer we can get to the lockdown lift.
