SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California won’t lift its mask requirement until June 15 to give the public and businesses time to prepare and ensure cases stay low, state Health Director Dr. Mark Ghaly said Monday. “This four week period will give Californians time to prepare for this change, while we continue the relentless focus on delivering vaccines particularly to underserved communities and those that were hard hit throughout this pandemic,” Ghaly said. Many other states lifted their mask requirements last week after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it’s safe for fully vaccinated people to skip face coverings and social distancing in most situations. “On June 15 California plans to implement CDC’s guidelines around masking to allow fully vaccinated Californians to go without a mask in most indoor settings,” Ghaly said. California Gov. Gavin Newsom already has said that if cases remain low the state will drop nearly all COVID-19 restrictions on June 15. Until then, California will keep its rules saying people who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus do not need to wear a mask outdoors unless they are attending crowded gatherings. But the state has said they still must wear masks indoors unless they are meeting with other vaccinated people. The state has other rules for businesses and other public places that vary by county under its color-coded tier system, which is based on the prevalence of the virus. The federal agency’s guidelines, issued Thursday, similarly say people should wear masks in crowded indoor locations like airplanes, buses, hospitals and prisons. Businesses are expected to adhere to the state’s guidelines, Ghaly said. That four-week delay will help businesses prepare for the transition to fewer restrictions, he said. He noted that the CDC has said that it will keep the mask requirement in place for students for the rest of the calendar year, and said California will do the same. Newsom initially gave conflicting previews last week on when the state might lift mask restrictions as it approaches a full reopening of its economy planned for June 15 with infection rates dwindling and inoculation rates rising. On Friday, he said health officials were weighing “a whole host of complexities” including how to enforce a policy where some people are allowed to go unmasked and those without vaccines should still be wearing them. There also are issues around businesses that may want to still require masks for all, and at schools, where children under 12 still cannot be vaccinated. More than a dozen states quickly said they would follow the new federal guidelines, but others were like California in weighing their response. Some retailers were also split, with Walmart, Costco and Trader Joe’s saying Friday that they won’t require vaccinated shoppers to wear a mask unless state or local laws say otherwise. Newsom’s former chief of staff, Ann O’Leary, was among those upset by the CDC’s decision. “My blood is boiling that @CDCgov acted so irresponsibly to adopt an 'honor code' for public mask wearing,” she tweeted. “It’s not good public health advice to say to parents whose kids can’t get vaccinated, just trust the public to do the right thing with all the politicization over masks.” Newsom, like the Biden administration, has been under pressure to ease mask restrictions particularly for those who are fully vaccinated and as coronavirus cases ease nationwide. The governor is facing a recall election this fall driven largely by frustration with his handling of the pandemic. Don Thompson, The Associated Press

Contact tracing has been an essential part of preventing the spread of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia, especially during the third wave. Since April 1, there have been more than 3,000 positive cases of COVID-19, which is more than half of all cases recorded in Nova Scotia since the pandemic began in March 2020. Each case requires contact tracing. "It's definitely been a busier time than in recent months," Katherine Malec, a public health nurse and health protection manager for Nova Scotia's COVID-19 response team, told CBC Radio's Information Morning on Monday. "[It's] definitely an unprecedented time currently with our public health COVID response." Malec is just one of many registered nurses who are trained in contact tracing and risk assessment. Call follows positive test She said contact tracing begins when someone tests positive for COVID-19. "Some people may be anticipating that and may be waiting for our call," she said, adding that if someone doesn't answer, Public Health will also send a text or email with the diagnosis. "In other times, it can be met with quite a bit of shock and concern, particularly in those instances when people may be asymptomatic ... or weren't aware that they were in close contact with somebody with COVID-19." Malec said those situations require compassion, support and understanding by the nurse on the phone. "We usually allow people the opportunity to process that information and then we would begin our case in contact investigation, which is really an interview over the phone," she said. The nurse explains isolation and testing requirements, and sets the individual up with supportive services through Public Health. 'We would never name names' Contact tracers then ask the individual where they've been in the last 48 hours, which sometimes requires going through bank records or location data on their phone. "It's really handy, especially in these times, that people keep a mental note or jot down where they have been ... and keep those receipts when they've gone out for their essential items," Malec said. Malec said some people can be reluctant to share where they have been, but it's important to note that contact tracing is fully confidential. "We would never name names," she said. Malec said since Nova Scotia implemented a provincewide lockdown at the end of April, she has seen a decrease in close contacts. She hopes that trend will continue and encourages all Nova Scotians to follow the public health measures. "How people can help is really staying home and abiding by the public health guidelines and restrictions, and we will see us come out the other side," she said. MORE TOP STORIES

CLEVELAND (AP) — The night before their season finale, the Cavaliers ditched their masks and got together for a team dinner on a rooftop in Brooklyn — a symbolic high point. The view was awesome, the ambience exquisite. Finally, something a little more familiar. Barely anything else was normal over the previous five months. “Not making any excuses,” said Cavs coach J.B. Bickerstaff, “it was one of the most difficult seasons that I’ve been a part of — for numerous reasons.” There were the mandated COVID-19 protocols. There were numerous injuries (star forward Kevin Love played just 25 games), drama (Kevin Porter Jr. was traded to Houston after a locker-room tantrum) and head-scratching decisions (center Andre Drummond went from starter to outcast). And, of course, there was losing, so much losing. One of the league's youngest teams, the Cavs dropped 16 of their last 18 games to finish 22-50 — tied for the fourth-worst record in the NBA to guarantee Cleveland another spot in the draft lottery and another year hoping for the kind of luck that brought the franchise success before. The Cavs started the 2020-21 season with a goal of making the play-in tournament, but they fell far short and missed the playoffs for the third year in a row. They're 60-159 since LeBron James left Cleveland for the second time as a free agent. Bickerstaff's job appears to be safe. He and his staff successfully developed young guards Darius Garland and Collin Sexton, brought along rookie Isaac Okoro, who showed offensive upside in the final two months, and Cleveland's coaches got the most out of having to use numerous unproven players with G League resumes. General manager Koby Altman may have a tougher time convincing chairman Dan Gilbert and his ownership team that he deserves more time in this rebuild. Beyond the abysmal record, the Cavs don't seem to have a clear vision of what they want to be and there are questions about their culture. Bickerstaff, who due to injury used 30 different starting lineups, believes the Cavs are moving in the right direction. There's no denying they played hard for him, and although the results don't show it, there are signs of progress and growth. “I am hopeful that we can bring the group back together, because continuity is so important,” Bickerstaff said. "Obviously, the organization will do what it needs to do to make sure that we’re always improving. But we all know the more continuity you have, the better the teams are. "And the more common that bond is, the more they have those shared experiences, the better the team can be." LOVE STORY The five-time All-Star's future is the club's biggest offseason issue — and its trickiest. He's 32 with two years and $60 million guaranteed left on a four-year contract extension the Cavs probably regret giving him. Love struggled with a calf injury all season, and his on-court flare-up last month increased speculation he's checked out in Cleveland. Trading him will be tough, unless the Cavs are willing to swallow some of his salary. It may be time for both sides to move on. SEXTON'S SUMMER He's mesmerizing and maddening — sometimes in the same possession. The 22-year-old had a solid season, averaging a team-high 24.3 points per game. He's a bona fide scorer, but there are too many times when Sexton seems to be playing by himself. There are holes in his game as a playmaker and defender. The Cavs love his energy, worth ethic and ability to put the ball in the basket. They can offer him a maximum contract extension this summer, but have to first decide if he's a cornerstone piece and a match with Garland or an asset to acquire other talent. GARLAND'S GROWTH In his second season, Garland showed he can be the playmaking guard the Cavs have lacked since Kyrie Irving forced his trade. Garland's scoring average jumped five points (12.3 to 17.4), his assists increased (3.9 to 6.1) and he's shown some of the leadership traits the Cavs need. Unfortunately, he also been a bit injury prone, missing 18 games with shoulder and ankle issues. ROOKIE SUPRISE Okoro's defense stood out from the start and he held his own while guarding some of the game's best offensive players. But over the last month, he attacked the basket with more frequency and ferocity. He scored a season-high 32 in a loss to Phoenix on May 4. DRAFT DREAMS The Cavs covet a wing scorer, and Oklahoma State's Cade Cunningham would seem to be a perfect fit as the presumed No. 1 pick. Trouble is, Cleveland isn't assured the top selection. There's plenty of other talent — Gonzaga guard Jalen Suggs, USC center Evan Mobley — which can help the Cavs get better. But Cunningham, who seems to have the most complete all-around game among the top prospects, could be a franchise changer. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/tag/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Tom Withers, The Associated Press
