TRINITY COUNTY, Calif.- As of Thursday the Trinity County Public Health Officer has issued the mandatory use of face coverings in the workplace and public places in Trinity County.

Regardless of vaccination status, the use of masks in indoor public settings for Trinity County is required, unless medically exempt. 

Since Aug. 1, an increase in COVID-19 cases due to the delta variant has caused concerns for hospitalization rates. One in five cases is among even vaccinated people in Trinity County. 

Trinity Public Health is advising that people use proper fitting face coverings, that block the mouth and nose. This means scarfs, ski masks, balaclava, bandanas, turtlenecks, collars or any single layer fabrics are not sufficient enough face coverings. 

People, businesses, venues, and others responsible for indoor settings that draw crowds must require face coverings regardless of a person's vaccination status. They must also provide easy-to-read signs that are visible and tell patrons of the mask requirements. 

Exemptions from the mask mandate include people under two years old, people working in a closed office or room, people who are eating, people swimming or showering in a fitness facility, people engaged in physical activities where a mask poses a health or safety risk, people having a nose or face cosmetic service is done and people who are specifically exempted from wearing face masks pursuant to other CDPH guidance.
