We’ll need to mask up inside public places again, regardless of vaccination status starting on on Tuesday, August 3rd at 12:01 am. The Covid Delta Variant is catching up to the Bay Area, so health officers from Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, San Francisco, Contra Costa, Marin, Sonoma, and the city of Berkeley announced the mask mandate. San Benito, Santa Cruz, and Monterey Counties are not required yet but have already been advising the practice for the past several weeks.
Updated from ABC News: Hospitalizations were up 400% in Contra County in July. “In Sonoma County, our case rate for unvaccinated individuals is nearly six times higher than it is for our vaccinated population,” said Dr. Sundari Mase, health officer for Sonoma County. Please be safe.
