Throughout the state of California, face masks are required to be worn indoors in public spaces beginning Wednesday, December 15, 2021. This is in response to a 47% increase in Covid case rates in the state since Thanksgiving and a rise in hospitalizations. For details on the mandate, please read this press release from the California Department of Public Health.
This mandate is scheduled to last at least until January 15, 2022. We in Downtown Old Monterey thank you for your patience and your continued support of our small, locally-owned businesses this holiday season.
