The Santa Barbara County Public Health Department has once again extended the order which requires the use of masks in indoor public settings.

The order was originally enacted in August and has been extended every month since then.

It requires all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings when indoors in public settings, with limited exceptions.

The extended order will be in place until 5 p.m. on March 3, 2022, unless is it rescinded or extended again.
