Face masks have become one of the most enduring — and surprisingly controversial — images of the coronavirus pandemic that’s been tearing through the US for more than two months now. My local Target store, for example, now keeps customers lined up outside the front door, welcoming in people gradually to keep that number limited inside.
The states where this is illegal are as follows:
- New York
- Rhode Island
New York was one of the first states that required people to wear a mask in public when social distancing is impractical.
