When I go in rec center and get closer than 6 feet they mask up, course I am wearing mask. Once I make my way to pool table and there is no one within 10 feet I take mask off.

If people come in I move away from them. if they get close I mask up if the occupy table next to me. If anybody in room is coughing I immediately leave.

Last time I read the instructions said mask recommended?

The OP is asking if employees at the rec center are *required* to wear masks. They're not asking whether or not guests can consider optional.

By my observation they are “required” IAW CDC guidelines. I guess if the OP wants LEGAL determination they can call the number provided by boogie. Thank you for you’re opinion.

Why, do you want to get one of these minimum wage employees in trouble? Just wear your mask and stay away from people.

I assume by your question that someone wasnt wearing a mask. Instead of looking to get them in trouble, just leave. Simple

They are NOT REQUIRED to wear a mask unless you get within 6 feet of them. Can you imagine wearing a mask 8 hours when there is. No one in the building. Very unhealthy that would be.

Masks are requested.....employees should wear them if within 6 ft of someone, indoors.

That is what the rec center employees are doing at the sport's pool at Colony Rec Center. I can see the employee putting on the mask as I approach the desk that is set up outside the locker rooms. Works for me. I guess I'd be fine with it inside also but....there is a chance of aerosols lingering in the air of an indoor space if any employees are asymptomatic carriers of the virus. It would be better if the employees kept their masks on and take breaks every once in a while. Isn't that what the employees in our grocery stores and other public indoor buildings have to do?

Aerosol lingering is not reported as true by the cdc ,it is media driven. The “death clouds are fiction’” masks are only required if you are unable to maintain six feet distance.

But I thought wearing of the mask is intended to protect "others"!?
