Best Life Logo By Kali Coleman of Best Life | Slide 1 of 11: Since the beginning of April, face masks have become a staple in our lives as a preventative measure against the coronavirus. On Apr. 3, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that everyone should wear cloth face coverings in "public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain." And even the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends that employers require workers to wear masks to slow the spread of COVID-19. However, when it comes down to whether or not you have to wear a face mask, not all states are created equal. Some merely recommend residents wear face coverings, others only require them for certain groups, and others mandate all residents wear masks in public. If you want to know which states have the strictest face mask laws, read on to see where they're required for pretty much everyone. And for more guidelines across the states, check out States Are Banning This One Type of Face Mask.
