Hold on to these masks! Some places in Santa Barbara still need it

However, there are places in Santa Barbara and the United States that still require people to wear a mask, regardless of their vaccination status.
Three notable places where masks are still required are hospitals, public transportation, and schools. Santa Barbara Airport tweeted a recall for travelers to pack their masks. The Federal Aviation Administration still requires masks at airports and on airplanes, regardless of vaccination.
In California and Santa Barbara County, businesses are allowed to continue to require their customers to wear a mask.
