California Gov. Gavin Newsom Makes Wearing Masks MANDATORY in Public

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed an order making wearing face masks mandatory while in public places, citing health concerns due to the Chinese coronavirus outbreak.

All residents in California will be forced to wear a face covering while in line or inside a public space, at the workplace, and when waiting for or while riding public transport.

People engaged in outdoor exercise such as hiking, running or cycling do not need to wear a mask. Children under the age of two and people with existing medical conditions are exempt from the order.

“Science shows that face coverings and masks work,” the Democratic governor said in a statement.

“They are critical to keeping those who are around you safe, keeping businesses open, and restarting our economy.”

“Simply put, we are seeing too many people with faces uncovered – putting at risk the real progress we have made in fighting the disease,” Newsom continued.
“California’s strategy to restart the economy and get people back to work will only be successful if people act safely and follow health recommendations. That means wearing a face covering, washing your hands, and practicing physical distancing.”
