Masks will still be required in Santa Fe Depot inside (but not outdoors, the TSA has updated it's guidenance last week to no longer require masks when waiting outside at a transit hub, like on a rail platform) because the Mask Mandate on Public Transportation Remains in effect.We’ve just returned from running some errands down in Alpine, a small community in East San Diego County. This was the first time that we’ve been out since California eased up on its mandates for social distancing and wearing masks. The tellers in the bank were still wearing masks so we wore ours, even though we’ve been vaccinated. (The bank wasn’t crowded enough to judge how social distancing is being handled.) The woman who runs a little dry-cleaning shop did not wear a mask. The clerk at a family-owned gas station didn’t wear a mask although the customer ahead of us did. The Alpine library is still requiring masks. The local McDonalds still hasn’t reopened its dining room, and the clerks were still wearing masks.
We haven’t yet heard what the Santa Fe Depot’s current policy is regarding wearing masks and maintaining social distancing now that the state requirements have been eased.
One of the unusual but I think decent ways to illustrate this is in the just updated guidelines for Disneyland, masks are no longer required for vaccinated guests except for "the bus shuttle to and from the Toy Story Park Lot." This bus shuttle is operated by ARTS the public bus system in Anaheim under contract to Disney so masks are required. Similar at Dinseyworld masks are now only required there on buses and the monorail.[/QUOTE]
