In 4-1 decision, Solano County Board of Supervisors recognize primacy of Vallejo indoors mask mandate
Just yesterday, I highlighted Times-Herald reporter Richard Freedman’s story, “Vallejo libraries immune from mask mandates.”
The news then was that Solano County’s lack of strong leadership on masking indoors would prevail over Vallejo’s mandate because the libraries in Vallejo are run by the County.
I invited everyone in Vallejo to come to Benicia libraries, which are not run by Solano County.
But later yesterday morning, our Solano County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to respect local mandates in facilities run by the County. (The Board would not recognize the importance of masking indoors in the rest of the county – they failed to even bring that issue to a vote.) But as of today, if you visit or work in any of Vallejo’s Solano offices, including the Superior Court building and the libraries, you are obligated to follow Vallejo’s mask mandate.>> Download details of the Vallejo Mask Mandate
Residents can feel a bit better about entering County buildings in Vallejo now, but you may want to stay away from County facilities in Fairfield and Vacaville. And I want you to know that you’re STILL welcome here in Benicia, where ALL public indoors facilities require masks for workers and visitors alike.
