Newsom says that California workers will soon be able to stop wearing masks.
He said that the state will be consistent with the CDC's guidelines. These guidelines would allow vaccinated workers to stop wearing masks and would end social distancing. Those who are still not vaccinated will still have to wear masks when indoors or in vehicles.
Newsom said "We'll codify that with an executive order to make that clear on the 17th, so that should clear up any ambiguity if they take the action that was highlighted on Friday."
