SALEM (CBS) – Salem, Massachusetts is taking a big step to help stop the spread of coronavirus in that city.

Starting Sunday, everyone must wear a mask or cloth face covering when they enter a grocery store, pharmacy, restaurant or any other essential business.

Officials say it can be a fabric mask, scarf or bandana, but it must cover your nose and mouth.

Employees at these essential businesses are also required to wear masks.

The new rules come just days after 59-year-old Vitalina Williams died after being diagnosed with coronavirus. She worked at the Market Basket in Salem. Two other workers there have tested positive.
