The general indoor mask mandate ended on March 12. Outside of a few excepted areas (i.e. healthcare settings, jail, etc.), masks will be optional and not required.
Individuals should choose whether or not to mask based on their individual risk assessment and the CDC community levels dashboard. We encourage those who are immunocompromised or with underlying health conditions, as well as those living with people at higher risk, to continue wearing a mask around others. Please honor and support individuals’ personal health decisions.
Quarantine and Contact Tracing
Additionally, contact tracing and quarantine was paused on March 12 for the general population, including K-12 and childcare settings. This means that quarantine is no longer recommended within the general population for exposure to someone who has COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status.
Steps to follow these steps if someone in your household has symptoms of COVID-19.
