CA Set to Follow CDC’s New Relaxed Mask Mandate
Thanks to SFGate for sharing that California is examining the new CDC guidelines and aiming to relax the statewide mask mandate that’s been in place since June 2020.
On Tuesday, April 27, Gov. Newsom announced that if you’re fully vaccinated, you will no longer be required to wear a mask if you’re outdoors, provided you’re not in a large crowd.
Thankfully, restrictions are easing up now that California has the lowest positivity rate in the country, with the number of new cases continuing to drop each day.
CA will be aligning with the new CDC guidelines.
If you’re fully vaccinated, outdoors, and not in a large crowd — you do not need to wear a mask.
We’ve administered 29+ million vaccines & have the lowest positivity rate and case rate in the nation.
Let’s do this. Vax up, CA!!
