Pasadena Eases Mask Guidelines. Gameology Pasadena Extends Hours!

Pasadena Public Health Director Ying-Ying Goh said Pasadena is expected “to be synchronized with L.A. County on masking requirements, with a common sense, risk-based approach.”

According to Goh and Ferrer, masking requirements will not be lifted until the county’s level of transmission falls to the “moderate” level as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and stays there for two straight weeks.

Reaching the “moderate” designation requires the county to have a cumulative, seven-day new case rate of less than 50 per 100,000 residents. According to the CDC’s website, the county’s rate was 1,098 per 100,000 residents as of Monday.

In addition to maintaining the “moderate” rate for two weeks, indoor mask-wearing requirements will only be lifted if “there are not new variants of concern that appear to be a threat,” Goh said.

On Tuesday, Pasadena reported 91 confirmed cases and five probable cases, a slight decrease from last Friday when the city reported 96 confirmed cases and 17 probable cases.

As a result on February 24th Pasadena released a new public health mandate to go into effect on February 26th outlining how masks would no longer be required for vaccinated persons at indoor retail settings.

We here at Gameology Pasadena have been waiting for the restrictions to lessen, and now fully vaccinated persons can enjoy the game area without having to continue to wear masks!

As the pandemic lessens and more gamers have decided to experience the joy of in-person gaming, we have decided to extend our operating hours to accommodate!
