FOSTER CITY (BCN) — Foster City officials announced they will be requiring everyone to wear face coverings indoors starting Thursday when visiting city-operated buildings.

The announcement is meant to align with recent federal and regional health recommendations that have recommended, but not yet required, masking when going into most indoor public spaces.

San Mateo County implemented a similar masking requirement earlier this week for everyone entering a county facility.
