Face mask Guideline Changes

Face mask guidelines have now changed for different types of face covering that are acceptable

or unacceptable to wear. At this time, neck gaiters made of fleece, polyester or one-layer nylon

will not be permitted due to the lack of protection they offer when a person speaks, sneezes or

coughs. Bandanas of any material are not permitted.
