UCI epidemiologist Andrew Noymer has consistently echoed the same sentiment for weeks. “People should absolutely mask, that’s clear,” Noymer told Voice of OC earlier this month. “Mask, mask, mask, mask, mask.”  Former Health Officer Dr. Nichole Quick issued a mask order late last month as dine-in restaurants and shopping centers were reopening. But she faced blowback from Supervisors and residents on the order.
