francisco. any indication yet of just what might be announced today? >> reporter: the governor's office sent a press release and it basically says this could be centered around readiness, flexibility, and a few other things when it comes to the fight against covid-19. just yesterday many of us were able to walk around without masks across the bay area when it comes to indoor public spaces, one of many many reasons the office says california has led the fight against covid-19 with what they call robust public health measure. he may look at lessons learned and preparations over the last years as part of the covid-19 emergency response package. he did sign a $1.9 billion early action measure to supplement vaccination and testing, to combat misinformation and strengthen our healthcare system. with the recent lifting of the mask mandate though we wanted to know how people are adjusting to it. >> i think it's a little bit too soon for masks to go off. >> i kind of read the room a
