SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — California’s COVID masking rules are changing according to new information from the state’s department of public health.
Starting April 3, masks will no longer be required in indoor high-risk and health care settings.
Those areas include health care, long-term care, and correctional facilities as well as homeless, emergency and warming and cooling centers.
Wearing a mask in those high-risk indoor settings will still be recommended.
Also changing on April 3, the state will no longer require health care workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
The state is also shortening isolation time.
If you test positive for COVID, you only have to isolate for five days, not ten, as long as you don’t have a fever and your symptoms are improving.
