California extends mask mandate until Feb. 15

January 6, 2022

By JOSH FRIEDMAN

The California Department of Health and Human Services has extended the state’s indoor mask mandate by one month.

After taking effect on Dec. 15, 2021, the mandate was set to expire on Jan. 15, 2022. But, the mask mandate has now been extended through Feb. 15.

The rule requires Californians to wear masks in all indoor public places, regardless of their vaccine status. San Luis Obispo County has had its own indoor mask mandate in place since Sept. 1.

In announcing the extension of the state mask mandate, California Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly cited the omicron coronavirus variant and instructed Californians to wear well-fitted masks.

California is about to lose billions of dollars by making it impossible for L.A. to host the Super Bowl….

SoFi Stadium already requires proof of vaccination or negative test to enter. Because of its distinction as an indoor-outdoor stadium I believe the same mask policy they have this week when they host the 49er’s will be the same in five weeks.


But, I know the right-wingers (especially those who live here) would love to see California deny the NFL, which, by the way, they’ve already done—last year the 49er’s had to relocate to Arizona because of COVID mandates.


Despite that, last time I checked, the state had the fifth largest economy in the world with a more than $3 trillion GDP. I’m virtually positive that the state will add the nearly half billion dollars in revenue which the Super Bowl generates to that total.

I’d like to see people decide if they’d want to go or not, work or not, play or not. What makes the Superbowl game different than the game this Sunday, 1/9 Rams v 49ers, or the games they played in the last two weeks?

Probably about $300 million.

Ok.

Billions? That would be hard to do. Given that the NFL boasts that the SB brings in only $150-300 Million to a host city. Maybe half a billion since it is CA.
