Due to the recent case rate increases of COVID-19 from the highly infectious Delta variant, Sacramento County’s Public Health Officer strongly recommends masking indoors. In less than a month, Sacramento’s daily case rate has risen drastically, from 3.8 on June 20 to 10 on July 14. 
While cases continue to surge and until vaccination rates have increased in Sacramento County, vaccinated residents are strongly recommended to wear masks in indoor settings where vaccination verification is not required and the vaccination status of others is unknown. For example, in a workplace where employee rules allow for no mask after self-attestation of vaccination status, masks do not need to be worn by those who are vaccinated. But in a public space such as a grocery store or restaurant, masks are strongly recommended, regardless of vaccination status.
The current California Department of Public Health (CDPH) masking mandate requires individuals that are not vaccinated to wear face coverings in indoor settings. In addition, face coverings are required in healthcare settings, jails, public transportation and schools.
