CA Indoor Mask Mandate Extended 

CALIFORNIA — The omicron variant has raked the Golden State, prompting officials Wednesday to extend its indoor mask mandate for yet another month.

The renewed order was set to remain in place until Jan. 15, but Dr. Mark Ghaly, the state’s health secretary, announced that it would be extended until Feb. 17.

“At that time, we will again reevaluate the conditions across California and our communities in our health care delivery to make sure that we are taking the latest information into account to determine if there there would be another extension, or if we’re prepared to lift that requirement,” Ghaly told reporters on Wednesday.

Along with the renewed mandate, Californians will also be urged to make sure they are equipped with a well-fitted mask or one with a filtration system such as an N95 mask.

“Masks that were really helpful in the beginning are not as helpful today,” Ghaly said.
