2. Alabama. Alabama's mask mandate expired April 9. The state Department of Public Health recommends face-covering in public as part of its COVID-19 safety guidance.
3. Alaska. Alaska's Department of Health Social Services “strongly encourages the wearing of masks in public,” but the state has not required it. Anchorage, Alaska's largest city, ended its face-covering order in May; the capital of Juneau continues to mandate masking for unvaccinated people in indoor public spaces and large crowds outdoors.
4. Arizona. Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order March 25 lifting all state COVID-19 restrictions on businesses and barring cities and counties from enforcing mask mandates except in government buildings and on public transit.
5. Arkansas. Gov. Asa Hutchinson lifted his 8-month-old mask mandate March 31, saying the state had met targets for COVID-19 case counts set out several weeks earlier as a basis for rescinding the order.
6. California. Masks are required statewide for unvaccinated individuals in indoor public settings and workplaces, and for all people age 2 and over in schools, health care and long-term care facilities, correctional facilities, homeless and emergency shelters, and on public transit.
7. Colorado. Gov. Jared Polis ended Colorado’s mandate May 14, saying the state is shifting from “mask-wearing requirements to mask-wearing suggestions” in most settings.
8. Connecticut. Masks are required for unvaccinated people age 2 and over in indoor public places and for all people in school buildings, health care facilities, group residential settings such as nursing homes and prisons, and on public transit.
9. Delaware. Gov. John Carney lifted Delaware's general mask order May 21. The state continues to require face-covering in schools, state-owned buildings and settings where the CDC recommends maintaining mask rules, such as on public transit and at health care facilities.
10. District of Columbia. Masks are required in indoor public places for all people over age 2, whether vaccinated or not. Mayor Muriel Bowser dropped the District's exemption for fully vaccinated individuals in late July amid a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases.
11. Florida. Florida recommends but has not required face coverings for the general public. Several cities and large counties, including Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Hillsborough (which includes Tampa), had mask requirements, but Gov.

1. Cooper said DeSantis exceeded his authority in barring universal mask mandates when he issued an executive orderthat drew its authority from portions of the Parents’ Bill of Rights. The law was promulgated by Republicans and signed by DeSantis on June 29. DeSantis can no longer wield emergency powers under state law, Cooper added, because he had allowed the COVID-19 state of emergency to lapse a month before issuing his executive order. So he had to rely on the written language of the new law. That law saysthe state is not allowed to “infringe on the fundamental rights of a parent” to direct the upbringing, education, health care, and mental health of a child “without demonstrating that such action is reasonable and necessary to achieve a compelling state interest.” Referring to the law, Cooper said: “My ruling in this case, if you want to put it in one sentence is, I am enforcing the bill passed by the Legislature and requiring that anyone who uses that bill to follow all provision...
