Update on Indoor Masking in Santa Clara County

Dear Neighbors,


This week the County of Santa Clara Public Health Department announced that it will not lift local indoor masking requirements when the State lifts its indoor masking requirement on February 16.  Instead, Santa Clara County will continue to base decisions on whether and when to lift indoor masking requirements on the risks posed by COVID-19, using clearly defined metrics related to vaccination, hospitalizations, and COVID-19 case rates.  Los Angeles County has likewise announced it will not immediately lift its local masking requirement.  The County anticipates that it will be able to lift indoor masking requirements in a matter of weeks, as case rates continue to decline.
