California Businesses Baffled By Various Reopening Rules

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Businesses in California have been baffled by the shifting rules over who needs to wear masks and where once the nation’s largest state fully reopens from the pandemic. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s health agency has said vaccinated people won’t need to wear face coverings in many public places, but state regulators are still drafting rules for workers. That has some business leaders clamoring for Newsom to order just one set of mask rules for California’s 40 million people. California will end most mask rules on June 15 for people who are vaccinated while continuing to require face coverings for unvaccinated people in indoor public settings and businesses.
