The Orange County Register is reporting that Orange County California is no longer requiring face masks to be worn in public. While masks are no longer required, they are still “strongly recommended”.

Orange County Health Care Agency Director Dr. Clayton Chau said that while he believes wearing cloth masks helps slow the spread of COVID-19, the county wanted to be consistent with state guidelines, which don’t mandate face coverings.

“This will give our business community and individuals the ability to make the most appropriate decision for them and their situation,” he said.

When asked about the rule change, Chau said, “This decision is not because of the public pushback on it and we are not taking the masks away. We strongly recommend that people wear masks.”

Masks are still required for workers who deal with the public like at grocery stores and gas stations.

While Disneyland announced their reopening plans, there’s been no word if guests will be required to wear masks while at the park.
