Any person who is in a place open to the public, whether indoor or outdoor, and who is unable to or does not maintain a distance of approximately six (6) feet from every other person, shall cover his or her mouth and nose with a face covering, except where a person is unable to wear a face covering due to a medical condition or a person is  otherwise exempted by the Arizona Department of Health Services from doing so, or where a parent, guardian or caretaker determines that the person in their care or custody cannot reliably wear, remove, and handle a face covering following CDC guidance. A person who declines to wear a face covering because of a medical  condition shall not be required to produce documentation verifying the condition. This requirement applies to all workers and customers of businesses and other organizations open to the public that are permitted to operate. 

CAUTION: According to the CDC, children under age 2, or anyone who has 
trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance should not wear a face mask or covering and are, therefore, not subject to this order.
