The governor of São Paulo, João Doria, determined this Thursday (2) that the use of masks in open environments will be maintained, due to uncertainties about the impact of the emergence of the Ômicron variant. Previously, the flexibility of the measure had been announced as of the next 11th.

The recommendation was made by the Scientific Committee, which mentioned the risks of crowding at Christmas and New Year's parties.

In São Paulo, vaccination against covid-19 registers 78 million doses applied in 645 São Paulo municipalities; 76.15% of the population has a complete vaccination schedule and 84.7% has a dose of immunizing agent.
