I am a musician who plays for the public, do I have to wear a face covering?

The ordinance was not written with the intent to impede the ability of one to musically perform.  The answer to this question is similar in nature to the answer for the question regarding wearing of a face covering at the gym.  If you are in a building “open to the public,” you have to wear a face covering.  However, there is no expectation for the ordinance requirement to diminish the ability of a musician to perform so long as proper social distancing is maintained.  While not performing, face coverings are to be worn with the exception of actively eating and drinking.
