In California, GFCIs are required in garages. In my case detached shop. I put a GFCI every 4’ around the shop. I opted for not installing downstream receptacles for the reason of if a gfci trips or goes bad requiring replacement you lose power to all those downstream receptacles. A gfci at every location allows me to just move the cord to a neighboring location and keep working until I have time to replace the bad gfci. The additional cost of a gfci is minimal. Mine are all 20 amp plugs and I haven’t tripped one yet.
