Mountain View, Calif. — Effective Monday, August 2, the City of Mountain View is requiring all members of the public, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask (face covering) in public indoor settings at all City facilities.
The City’s requirement is due to increasing public health concerns over the spread of the more contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus and supports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Interim Public Health Recommendations and the masking indoors recommendation of several Bay Area counties including the County of Santa Clara.
The CDC’s updated recommendation, released this week, applies to counties that are experiencing substantial or high transmission. Per the CDC’s COVID-19 County View, Santa Clara County is currently flagged as a “substantial transmission” county.
Employees and visitors to all City of Mountain View facilities, which include City Hall, the Library, Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, Community Center, Senior Center and other facilities, must follow the new masking guidance.
