Health care workers in Santa Clara county must get flu shot or wear a mask
Oroville Mercury-Register

A controversial new mandate will force thousands of health care workers in Contra Costa and Santa Clara counties to get flu shots this fall — or wear a mask at work the entire influenza season.

San Francisco and Sacramento counties already have similar mask mandates aimed at curbing the spread of the deadly disease and convincing health care workers to practice what they preach. Alameda County is considering a similar rule.
