Starting Friday, May 1, San Diego County is requiring people to wear facial coverings when in public due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Coverings include a Mask, Bandanna, Scarf or even a T-shirt in public, and when you're within six feet of other people who are not a part of your household.
Facial covering requirements include:
Waiting in line to go inside a store;
Shopping in a store;
Picking up food at a restaurant;
Waiting for or riding on public transportation;
Riding in a taxi or a rideshare vehicle;
Going into facilities allowed to stay open;
And working an essential job that interacts with the public.
Now you're not required to wear facial coverings all the time.
Some instances include;
In your vehicle alone or with members of your household;
Due to the risk of suffocation, children under the age of 2 years old, are not required to wear facial coverings;
While surfing, swimming, cycling, walking, runing, or hiking. But do comply with social distancing while taking part in these activities, which means maintaining at least 6 feet of distance from other people. So you should have face covering ready to put on in populated places to avoid droplet spread. Except with members of the same household;
And if your doctor recommends against wearing a face covering due to health conditions. But be prepared to provide documentation.
