No matter your vaccination status, if you’re in Los Angeles, authorities strongly recommend everyone wear masks indoors in public places as a precautionary measure.
The “strong” recommendation comes as increased circulation of the highly transmissible Delta variant is being reported.
Public Health strongly recommends people wear masks indoors in settings such as grocery or retail stores; theaters and family entertainment centers, and workplaces when you don’t know everyone’s vaccination status.
They continue to say: If you aren’t fully vaccinated, your mask is one of the most powerful tools you have to protect yourself and other unvaccinated people. This is especially true when you are in an indoor or crowded outdoor space. If you are not fully vaccinated and work in a setting where you have sustained close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated or whose vaccination status is unknown, consider wearing a respirator for additional protection.
The day the recommendation was published, LA County reported 259 additional COVID-19 cases and 3 deaths.
Surely we will see more “recommendations” popping up throughout parts of the country.
