All Rhode Island businesses will be required to provide masks for all employees beginning Saturday, Gov. Gina Raimondo announced on Tuesday.

Retail stores also must post signs alerting customers that everyone age 2 and above must wear a mask while inside the business, she added, according to Bloomberg Law.

"You have to do this," the governor said.

"Spot checks" will be implemented at offices and stores, and those found not in compliance may face fines and restrictions on business.

"I haven’t gone there yet," Raimondo said of fines, but said she is certain businesses will comply.

The Hill reported that businesses are required to either supply cloth masks or the material for employees to make them at the businesses' expense.
