As of Friday, everyone in Sonoma County is now required to wear a face covering.
The Sonoma County Health Officer stated that anyone entering an indoor facility, any enclosed space, or an outdoor space where they can’t keep a distance of six feet away from others at all times, must wear a mask. The only exception is in ones own home. Businesses can also refuse service or deny entry to anyone not wearing a mask.
Under the new rule, employers are ordered to make sure their employees comply. The rule also applies to non-Sonoma County residents who may need to travel into the county for essential business.
Remember, masks don’t need to be medical grade, like the N95 mask, for example. Masks can be easily made at home, as long as they cover your mouth and nose, and there are plenty of videos on the Internet to show you how.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has already issued a state-wide mask requirement.
Jack Kulp and Carolyn McArdle talked about it on the air! Listen below...
