Spokane Regional Health District recommends people mask up indoors, regardless of vaccination

SPOKANE, Wash. — Due to new guidance from the CDC, the Spokane Regional Health District is now encouraging people to wear masks indoors, regardless of whether they are vaccinated.

First and foremost, the health district says if you are not vaccinated, now is the time to get your shot.

As Delta variant cases make up a majority of new COVID infections across Washington, SRHD says everyone should mask up regardless of vaccination status. This is especially the case in indoor settings where you are not certain of other people’s vaccination status.
