Nic announced that he doesn’t like masks that much, but wears them to protect others.” Me have to wear them every day and it kind of bothers me but I’ll do it, “said Nic. Maria Blanco, a program manager for Stanislaus Public Health said the recommendation comes after the county sees a surge in COVID-19 cases . The number, she says, has almost doubled in the past week. “Most of these cases are from people who haven’t been vaccinated,” said Blanco. “We are concerned about the population who are over 65 years old or who may have some pre-existing health conditions.
