California Today – Do Californians want mask mandates to come back?

As you’re probably well aware, the latest Covid surge has reignited a debate about mandatory masking in California. The University of California, Irvine, and the San Diego Unified School District reinstated indoor mask requirements on Monday, the same day that Bay Area Rapid Transit lifted its mandate. Health officers across the country seem reluctant to hand down any new orders, but officials in Los Angeles County, home to about a quarter of Californians, are planning for an indoor mask mandate to take effect later this month.
