Remember to mask up starting Wednesday


With a spike in the number of coronavirus cases, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is requiring masks to be worn in all indoor public settings irrespective of vaccine status from December 15 through January 15, 2022. At that point, California will make further recommendations as needed in response to the pandemic. 

Among the indoor public spaces affected are retail stores, restaurants, theaters, family entertainment centers and government offices that serve the public.

Face coverings are also required for everyone in these settings, whether you've been vaccinated or not:

  • On public transit such as buses, trains, airplanes, ferries, taxis and ride services and in the areas that serve those such as airports, transit stations, etc. 
  • Indoors in K-12 schools, childcare and other youth settings (see exemptions here)
  • Adult and senior care facilities  
  • Healthcare settings including long-term care facilities 
  • Detention facilities
  • Homeless shelters, emergency shelters and cooling centers

Additionally, CDPH updated requirements for attending mega events like concerts and sporting events. Before attending an event, attendees will now require either proof of vaccination, a negative antigen COVID-19 test within one day of the event, or a negative PCR test within two days of the event.

CDPH also issued a new travel advisory effective immediately to recommend that all travelers arriving in California test for COVID-19 within three to five days after arrival, regardless of their vaccination status.
