Face mask requirements will be enforced and only pedestrian traffic will be allowed on the 500 block of State Street and during Tuesday's Farmer's Market. This area includes many restaurants with large outdoor dining areas as well as congested pedestrian passages where safe distancing is not always possible and diners eating without face masks are more exposed to COVID-19. Mandatory face mask use is intended to create a safer public experience. The creation of a pedestrian-only block is also intended to improve public safety. Bicycles and other wheeled vehicles may be walked and skateboards carried.
