Embattled California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) will keep his state’s mask mandate in place until June 15, because science.
Out of no where the CDC last Thursday announced fully vaccinated people will no longer be required to wear masks indoors.
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said she’s just following the evolving science.
“We now have science that has really just evolved even in the last two weeks that demonstrates that these vaccines are safe, they are effective,” Walensky told Martha Raddatz.
Many Democrat governors caved following the CDC’s updated guidance on masks and lifted their state’s mask mandates.
But not California.
Newsom, who is facing a recall election for his disastrous lockdown policies and hypocrisy, is digging in his heels and keeping California’s mask mandate in place for another month.
Starting June 15, fully vaccinated people in California will not need to wear masks indoors or outdoors.
It is unclear how people will prove they are vaccinated, or if they will need to prove it.

Noted attorney Harmeet Dhillon said if anyone tries to make her show papers of her private health status in order to move about freely in public spaces, she will sue.
Breaking … some of us have already been following the science for months… and vaccination is not the key issue, herd immunity is. Try to make me show papers of my private health status to move about freely in public spaces? Litigation incoming. https://t.co/4DKh4pUoKP
