Topic: Indoor Face Mask Mandatory Lift
On February 7th, 2022 the Governor Newsom announced that the face mask mandate will end on February 15th for those who are vaccinated. Individuals who are unvaccinated are required to wear the mask in all public settings, indoors and outdoors.
All people regardless of vaccination status are required to wear the masks in high-risk areas such as hospitals, nursing homes, and public transits.
Lifting the mask mandate does not currently apply to children in schools.
If you have any questions about the mask mandates please contact your local public health department. Local governments can impose their own mask mandates beyond the state’s announcements.
