FACE COVERING OR MASK MUST BE WORN IN STORES: Governor Baker has made face coverings required state-wide.  Any person entering any business in Randolph, such as a grocery store, pharmacy, take-out food, hardware store and the like must wear a cloth face covering, such as a fabric mask, scarf or bandana, over their nose and mouth. Please save medical masks for health care use and first responders.

If you cough or sneeze, the mask can catch those respiratory droplets so they don't land on other people or surfaces. "So it's not going to protect you, but it is going to protect your neighbor," says Dr. Daniel Griffin at Columbia University, an expert on infectious diseases. "If your neighbor is wearing a mask and the same thing happens, they're going to protect you."
