Should residents wear masks in common rooms during a pandemic?

On April 16, 2020, ODMHSAS circulated the following:

It is now recommended for apartment residents or residents in a congregate setting to wear masks at all times when outside of their individual apartment/bedroom such as high traffic areas within  an apartment complex (hallways, corridors, common areas, getting mail, doing laundry, outside walkways, parking lot).  This helps with the protection of all and reduce risks of spread.
