States that Require Face Coverings to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

To help you stay on top of the laws that affect your business, KPA and our friends at the labor and employment law firm, Fisher Phillips have created maps outlining the COVID restrictions in place across the US.

Many states require workers to wear face coverings at all times when working in shared physical locations. In other states, workers are required to wear masks in certain circumstances or industries. At minimum, every state recommends people wear face coverings when possible. See what your state requires or recommends by hovering your cursor over the map below.

While these resources are current as of the moment uploaded, the laws, regulations, and guidelines on COVID-19 change so swiftly that these materials may become out-of-date almost instantly. While we will endeavor to replace and update these materials on an ongoing basis, these documents should not be used without ensuring they are updated and appropriate for your jurisdiction or industry.

Please note, these surveys only include information about requirements generally applicable to all businesses, including manufacturing and office environments. They do not include requirements pertaining to specific industries (such as healthcare, or restaurants).

And remember, of course, the information and materials on this site are provided for informational purposes only and do not constitute legal advice.
