Not too long after Governor Gavin Newsom made it known that California will let go of the mask mandate on February 15th, the Bay Area says that local indoor mask mandate rules will be loosened.
Mask Mandate rules have no effect on the Proof Of Vaccination.
Mere days later, 11 Bay area counties are joining forces to announce local indoor mask mandate rules to end next week. This would involve Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, and San Benito counties. This also involves the City of Berkeley. They will soon stop requiring vaccinated people to put on masks.
There still is a necessity for folks over two years to mask up. The masks are necessary for everyone on public transport and in health care settings, as well as at schools.
San Francisco along with other cities have to have proof of vaccination requirements. You’ll be required to show your card or a negative test in order to enter “restaurants, bars, gyms and other settings where food and drink are consumed.”
For sure the business owners need to determine their rules for mask-wearing. That’s a given. If you’re running your own business and they’re curious as to who you are and what your status is, you should not even question them. In fact, you should almost accept that you would still have to mask up at restaurants and bars. This is all to say that the mask mandate is unnecessary in order for individuals to feel safe and like they have some actual say in the matter.
