Masks are not recommended for children under the age of two, but are encouraged for children aged two to 12 in public settings. Children older than 12 must wear a mask in a public indoor space, unless they are exempt.

People who cannot wear a mask or who cannot put on or remove a mask without the assistance of others are exempt.
