Poor leadership in San Mateo County. Leave it to businesses to decide! Masks required in schools,public transportation,medical settings ,etc. but not everywhere...
No wonder people are not compliant, it’s too confusing for

San Mateo will get lots of business from Santa Clara county. It is a short drive for us to experience freedom and choose for ourselves whether we want to continue to mask.
