More On Coronavirus
Effective Today, Wednesday, May 6, 2020, Governor Baker issued an Executive Order requiring face masks or cloth face coverings in all public places where social distancing is not possible. This applies to both indoor and outdoor spaces. Exceptions include children under the age of 2 and those unable to wear a mask or face covering due to a medical condition.
Starting Friday, all Rhode Islanders in public places will be required to wear a face covering.
