California has now changed its mask requirements to match CDC guidance. Bay Area Counties require everyone, including fully vaccinated people, to wear a mask in indoor public settings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Alameda County had rescinded its Shelter-in-Place Order, in accordance with the California State Beyond the Blueprint Framework. For more information, see California State Public Health Officer Order and Alameda County Health Officer Order 21-01a.
