It depends, but “essential workers” wearing face masks are quickly becoming the new normal.

Let’s dig in.

In some cases, the answer is “Yes”, such as in Los Angeles, California, where Mayor Eric Garcetti mandated that all “Workers at most essential businesses must wear face coverings, which business owners must either provide or reimburse workers for buying.”

Following LAs lead, other areas have already followed suit.

In some other cases, the answer is “No”. It comes down to where you live.

That’s why to answer this question you’ll need to check with your local municipal authority.
