- Most statewide health orders put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic expire tomorrow. So that means large indoor events no longer need state approval to host more than 500 people. And kids younger than 11 are no longer required to wear masks. But some mask requirements are still in place. Face coverings still required in schools, jails, and medical facilities for those older than 12 who are not vaccinated.

Local governments and businesses are still able to set their own restrictions on gatherings and mask wearing.
