The city of Berkeley’s health officer has expanded face covering requirements starting June 8, 2020. Everyone must carry a cloth face covering when they leave home, have it visible at all times, and put it on when others are nearby.
Face coverings are required for everyone over 12 years old when:
- Shopping at a store.
- Waiting in line to enter a store.
- Using or waiting for public transportation.
- In a taxi or when ride-sharing.
- Seeking health care.
- Inside a workplace.
- Walking outside and within 30 feet of others (about the length of a bus).
