Vaccination / Covid

As California reopens and physical distancing requirements and capacity limits are lifted, the risk of COVID-19 is still present, especially for those who are not fully vaccinated against the virus. 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.
