Current Los Angeles County rules require everyone to wear masks when indoors. We will have some masks on hand, but please bring whatever you will be most comfortable wearing, and remember that there will be a prize for the most ancestral mask!
We suggest you bring and wear layers, as it will be air conditioned in the meeting room and probably will be quite warm outside.
