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.
