Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva Will Not Enforce New Mask Mandate

He’s got 99 problems, but a mask ain’t one. Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Friday that his department will not enforce the new mandatory indoor mask requirement that will begin tonight at 11:59 PM.

The county Department of Public Health revived its indoor mask requirement on Thursday after a spike in Covid-19 cases. The requirement dictates that masks be worn indoors regardless of vaccination status.

Villanueva said in a statement that forcing masks “is not backed by science and contradicts the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.”
