With Covid-19 cases increasing, the state of California is now recommending all individuals regardless of vaccination status wear masks while indoors again. Last month the state lifted most of its pandemic restrictions leaving it up to businesses to decide what policies to implement.
“The Delta variant has caused a sharp increase in hospitalizations and case rates across the state. We are recommending masking in indoor public places to slow the spread while we continue efforts to get more Californians vaccinated,” Dr. Tomás Aragón, director of the California Department of Public Health and state public health officer said.
The CDC also recently updated its COVID-19 guidance to recommend all individuals mask up indoors in areas with high transmission rates. Most of California falls into the “high” or “substantial” category so state health officials are recommending universal masking for indoor settings.
“This adds an extra precautionary measure for all to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, especially in communities currently seeing the highest transmission rates,” the state guidance says.
As of publication, Disneyland has not made any changes to its face mask policy. Face coverings are required for non-vaccinated guests while indoors but vaccinated guests can go mask-free.
