If I have an medical underlying condition, do I have to wear a face mask?

January 21, 2021

No. CDC guidelines have a consideration for those people that have difficulties breathing with a face mask due to an underlying health condition. There should be alternatives for the person to use (i.e. face shield), but they do need to have some type of face coverage, and keep safe distance.
