Governor Gavin Newsom announced his statewide mask mandate will expire on February 15 for vaccinated individuals.
“Unvaccinated people will still need to wear masks indoors,” Newsom said.
There is no statewide vaccine passport system in California so there is no way to determine who is vaxxed or unvaxxed.
NEW: CA’s case rate has decreased by 65% since our Omicron peak. Our hospitalizations have stabilized across the state.
Our statewide indoor mask requirement will expire on 2/15.
Unvaccinated people will still need to wear masks indoors.
Get vaccinated. Get boosted.
