Masking orders remain

A man talking
Mendocino County Public Health Officer Dr. Andy Coren

February 11, 2022 — Indoor masking orders remain in effect in Mendocino County at least until mid-March, due to strained hospital capacity.

Public Health Officer Dr. Andy Coren said he “stayed up long hours” deciding whether or not to go along with the state in loosening mask requirements. But after meeting with hospital officials, he decided that, although covid case numbers have dropped, relaxing the rules was not an appropriate response to local conditions.
