Dr. Ying-Ying Goh, director of Pasadena Public Health, recommended residents to wear a mask where they are still necessary.
Pasadena To Remove Complete Covid-19 Restrictions On June 15
Goh said that COVID-19 keeps spreading freely among some of the unvaccinated. He also stated that they are planning for the State’s complete resumption on June 15, which will include the removal of most distance and capacity limits, and that they encourage everybody to get the vaccinations. He went on to say that they possess three highly effective and safe vaccines that are the most potent weapons to safeguard their population from disease. The continuous use of proper masks as a public health safety precaution is crucial to safeguard others who are not vaccinated or not yet qualified to get the vaccine.
People Must Be Respectful To Those Who Wear Masks
While masks would no longer be necessary for several places, Huntington Hospital Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Kimberly Shriner encouraged the people to be respectful of those who like to use them.
“We are very fortunate to have successful vaccines that have helped decrease the spread of the virus, and that so many people in Pasadena and Los Angeles have accepted the vaccine so far. Also, people have been impacted by COVID-19 in many different ways. With this in mind, when you are in a public space where masks are not required, like the grocery store or a restaurant, we should respect those around us who are more comfortable continuing to wear a mask, just as much as we respect those who choose not to wear a mask,” Shriner said.
