Per ETS: You must bring a mask to the test center, regardless of local policy. If you come to the test center without a mask, you will be turned away. You must supply your own mask. The center or local policy determines if you are required to wear it the entire time at the test center. As a precautionary measure you can choose to wear a mask during testing if the test center or local policy does not require it. Both medical masks and cloth face coverings are acceptable.
