LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Local health officials Monday recommended everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks indoors due to increased circulation of the highly transmissible Delta variant.
According to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, Delta variants comprised nearly half of all variants sequenced locally in the week ended June 12. And the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has noted that Delta variants are now responsible for about one in every five new infections across the country, up from approximately one in 10 the week before.
Due to the rate of spread of the variant, first detected in India, health officials have issued a strong recommendation for people to wear masks indoors in settings such a grocery or retail stores; theaters and family entertainment centers and workplaces where vaccination status is not immediately known.

The D in Delta is for DUD ?
First they push vaccinations like crazy—now they want vaxxed folks to mask up—can’t make up this stuff...
The vax is soooooo effective. But you better wear your mask because of that variant!
Delta is more contagious but not potent. Moderna and Pfizer is working well against them (and I assume J&J).
The lefties keep changing the narrative hourly....gotta check Wikipedia to keep up!
Oh great, my idiot Governor Inslee (WA) will probably follow suit because of his ‘science and data’ BS.
The goobermint cash goes into your accounts like a fire hose...
Stupidity is infinite. Idiots. Maybe they could try hanging garlic around their necks, and chanting “Covid, go away!” Same chance of doing something.
Waiting for the dreaded Delta-9 Too Hard to Cure variant to hit the left coast.
The progs will be dropping in the streets...
Never seen where masks could make a significant change in transmissability.
Maybe a very marginal one.
Be more useful to get the vax out to more adults.
Same here in Oregon with our commie kate, the sexually confused governor
And stay 16 feet apart. It’s the latest science.
Maybe we should stop all immigration from India
IOW, the vax is useless.
Gosh. Hope this doesn’t get in the way of the recall election!
