A Bay Area County has returned a mask mandate for most public settings.
As COVID-19 Cases are on the rise again, with parts of the country already returning to previous COVID-19 safety guidelines, including indoors. This is the case in Alameda County, California, which has just announced that COVID-19-related hospitalizations and COVID-19 cases have blown up the county’s highest number since last summer, according to Fox News.
Officials say the county “has now reached the level seen during the winter 2020-21 wave, at the level of comparative lab-reported testing.” The Mask Mandate begins today; K-12 schools will no longer need masks by the end of the 2021-2022 school year, Fox News reports.
“The number of hospital admissions is also increasing after this wave remained stable in the first weeks. The number of daily new admissions of patients infected with COVID-19 has increased rapidly in recent days and has now surpassed the peak of last summer. We hope to reach out [the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC)] The ‘high’ COVID-19 community level will soon follow current trends, “the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency said in a release, as reported by Fox News.” I didn’t notice the disproportionate impact on the community. That’s not true anymore, and Alameda County now has the highest litigation rate among Hispanic / Latino residents. “
