(KUTV) – California is likely to have "guidelines and mandates" for wearing masks indoors after the state fully reopens next month, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Wednesday, appearing to walk back comments from the previous day that indicated masks would be gone in nearly all situations.
California's mask requirements took effect in June 2020. Last month, Newsom announced he would lift most restrictions on business and activities on June 15 if the state's coronavirus cases remained low but said masks orders would stay in effect.
Then, in an interview Tuesday, he said California once the state fully reopens it will look "a lot like the world we entered into before the pandemic."
