COVID is in the Air – Wear Your Mask!

May 10, 2022: With Contra Costa and other Bay Area counties seeing a swell in COVID cases, health officials are reiterating their strong recommendation to wear masks indoors. Omicron subvariants, which are even more contagious than the original Omicron, are driving the recent increase in cases. Outbreaks in workplaces and schools have also sharply increased in the past few weeks.

 

While masking remains optional for most public indoor settings, health officials say wearing face covering during periods of increased transmission is a simple best practice to protect against COVID.  

 

“There’s a lot of COVID out there right now, so it’s time to mask up indoors in public again,” said Dr. Ori Tzvieli, health officer for Contra Costa County.

 

Dr. Tzvieli said people should also stay home if they feel sick and get tested. He added that people eligible for booster shots should get one since protection from the COVID vaccines wane over time.
