say it was also students leaving to go to schools and other states throughout california and also to private school. frank maureen naylor live force tonight, maureen. thank you. with vaccine rates increasing in the number of daily cases dropping. some doctors are beginning to raise the question of whether it's ok to lift mascot mandates for people when they are outside, doctor say, transmission risk is low outside, which is why they've always said outdoor meetings or safer than indoors. some states have already started to drop mask mandates. just today, minnesota's high school league said that. student athletes would not have to wear masks when playing a sport. of course. experts also warned that the situation you're in plays a big role on whether or not you should have a mask on outside. joining us out to talk more about this is dr peter chin hung, infectious disease specialist at ucsf and peter. we always appreciate you coming on the show, and this is a very interesting question. i want to know your thoughts. when is it okay to start dropping the mask mandate outside. well, chrissy and i
5:34 pm
think it goes back down to something you just said, which is that context is everything. so it's not really binary like indoor outdoors and suddenly from running and going a park on ocean beach on a horse farm and then acenas no on the streets and nobody else is around. you know, masking isn't probably that important as opposed to, uh. waiting in line to get in somewhere, and it's really popular or being, you know, in a mosh pit at coachella, that's all doors, but it's highly risky when you bring lots of news is and models together. so it's all about context. whether not you call it a mask. mandate or not. they're certainly certain times when you're outdoors when it's more prudent to wear masks. and certain times when it's not prudent to wear a mask, so we're already starting to see some states dropping the outdoor mask mandate. what factors should this decision be based on once more city start to come out and say, ok, you can go ahead and stop wearing
5:35 pm
your mask outdoors, but keep it on indoors. yes. so i think some of the metrics that have been proposed include vaccination rates. of course on then the usual ones. people think about like number of new cases today, um, test positively rate, etcetera. but i think ultimately it's about how many visitors there are. how big the sides of the crowd is, um. etcetera so even in although setting and even if we get to june 15th and have some more guidance about nuances of went to wear masks and when not to wear a mask at the end of the day, i think hopefully people will realize that you know, they're sittin in north session, sex sections or sessions that might be less risky as well. so you could make that sonny? a vaccination status, okay, so we're making progress here in the u. s. vaccinations are
