GRAR President
Jim Yockel,
Does the Governor’s new Executive Order requiring individuals to cover their nose and mouth with a mask permit licensees to have in-person contact if they abide by the requirement of the EO? (added 4/16/20)

No. The EO does not lift the restriction on in-person contact between licensees and members of the public.

GRAR will be sending updates every Monday and Thursday until further notice.
