Students consider the outdoor mask rules amid the rise in positivity rates because of the Delta variant

In Los Angeles County, masks are required at outdoor events with over 10,000 people in attendance, including sporting events, concerts, parades, and food festivals. People can take their masks off when they are eating or drinking, but they must put them back on after eating and drinking. The CA Department of Health discourages people from cheering or singing because they claim that these activities increase the risk of spreading the coronavirus.
