Mask Required

Californians looking to comply with the statewide indoor masking order should consider upgrading their masks, according to state guidelines.

The California Department of Public Health recommends avoiding a cloth mask, and instead using a surgical mask or higher-level respirators instead.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom implemented a month-long mandatory indoor mask order which began Dec. 15 and runs through Jan. 15. Newsom gave the order as the state saw a significant rise in COVID-19 cases, despite the fact that Californians continue to get their vaccine and booster shots.

The order also cited concern with the growing number of cases of the omicron variant of COVID-19. The state recommends wearing a surgical mask, either by itself or in conjunction with a cloth mask, or wearing a N95, KN95 or KF94 mask.
