Adds new Section 24.7 to change the sunset provided for Section 4.3 of SL 2020-3 (2020 COVID-19 Recovery Act), which authorizes persons to wear a mask without violating the specified prohibitions on masks on certain public and private premises if the person is wearing a mask for the purpose of ensuring the physical health or safety of the wearer or others. Now provides for expiration upon Executive Order No. 116 being rescinded, rather than August 1, 2020.
