Today is July 16, 2021.
We want to share a new update about wearing masks indoors again. There have been increases with cases of COVID-19 and increased circulation of the highly transmissible Delta variant.
The following counties : Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Sonoma, and the City of Berkeley
now recommend that everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks in public indoor places like grocery or retail stores, theaters, and family entertainment centers. Masks are encouraged even if individuals are fully vaccinated. Right now this recommendation is an extra precautionary measure for everyone. Bay Area public health officers from these counties will monitor cases, hospitalizations and share updates in the next few weeks.
