Today, I’m signing an executive order that will lift the statewide indoor mask mandate this Friday, May 28. However, even with this action, individual businesses and other entities which oversee indoor spaces may continue to require that their employees and customers or guests wear face masks. As recommended by the C.D.C., there are spaces where masking will continue to be required, including health care settings and long-term care facilities, correctional facilities, homeless shelters, to name a few. And you must remain masked while you’re on an airplane, a bus or train or other forms of public transportation, and while in a transportation hub, such as an airport or a train station. These requirements, by the way, will be strictly enforced. We also will be requiring that face masks continue to be worn indoors in public-facing state offices. This change will not extend to child care centers and facilities, youth summer camps, public, private or parochial preschool premises, and elementary and secondary schools, including both charter and Renaissance schools. In each of these cases, existing requirements for masking will be maintained. If you are not vaccinated, we encourage you in the strongest possible terms to either follow the — first of all, get vaccinated, but if not, or until — follow the C.D.C. guidance to wear a face mask when you’re in any indoor public setting, as I mentioned, or preferably, immediately go out and get vaccinated. We won’t have law enforcement checking people’s vaccination status, but we are asking people to be responsible and to do the right thing, for your own safety and the safety of your community.
