Communities and Events NCDHHS recommends that everyone wear a mask when in indoor public spaces. This is consistent with CDC guidance for people living in counties of high or substantial levels of transmission. Everyone, including people who are up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccinations, should wear a face covering in all K-12 schools, child care, indoor settings with a large number of children or child-focused activities (e.g., children’s museums), public transportation, health care settings, high density congregate settings (e.g., correction and detention facilities, homeless shelters, migrant farm camps), and large crowded indoor venues (e.g., arenas, stadiums).
