Here's where you'll still need to wear a mask after March 12 in Washington and Oregon

As Washington and Oregon end masking requirements for most places, there are still some situations where you'll need to wear a mask.

The states announced in February that each would drop mask requirements for schools and most indoor public places on Saturday, March 12.

"With declining case rates and hospitalizations across the West, California, Oregon and Washington are moving together to update their masking guidance," the governors said in a statement.

The new guidance will make face coverings a recommendation rather than a requirement at most indoor places.

The last statewide mask mandate in the U.S. will be lifted by March 26, Hawaii Gov. David Ige announced. No states will require masks indoors after 11:59 p.m. March 25.

Hawaii is the last to drop the pandemic safety measure, with indoor mask mandates in Oregon and Washington state expiring at 11:59 p.m. March 11.

Federal officials are extending the requirement for masks on planes and public transportation for one more month — through mid-April — while taking steps that could lead to lifting the rule. The federal mandate was scheduled to expire March 18, but the Transportation Security Administration said Thursday that it will extend the requirement through April 18.
