Should I wear a mask to protect myself?

Yes. All Michiganders should wear a well-fitting mask in indoor public settings, even if they are fully vaccinated, to protect themselves and others. See the Public Health Advisory and Why You Should Mask Up for additional information.

If you are sick with respiratory illness, you should wear a well-fitting mask over your nose and mouth if you must be around other people or animals, including pets (even at home). You don't need to wear the face covering if you are alone. If you can't put on a face covering (because of trouble breathing for example), cover coughs and sneezes in some other way. MDHHS has provided guidance for the use of face coverings for the general public.
