Where are you required to wear a face mask? It’s starting to get pretty hard to keep up with all of the new rules and regulations.

Don’t worry, we are here to help.

According to USA Today, if you live in California, Maryland, New Jersey, or New York, then you may be required to wear a face mask.

Starting Friday, New Yorkers who can’t maintain a social distance from others must wear a face mask, while Maryland residents must don a face covering before going into any retail store beginning Saturday.

New Jersey issued a similar rule last week.

Los Angeles mandated last week that shoppers and workers wear face coverings during “essential shopping.” Under the order, businesses may refuse entry to anyone not wearing a face covering.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s order is an effort to create a statewide rule to replace patchwork orders from various local municipalities in recent days. The order requires a face covering for anyone inside any retail establishment or when riding any form of public transportation.

However it is important to note that there is no nationwide mandate regarding face mask use (yet).

Will face masks become a way of life in the United States? We think so, but only time will tell.
