Not Vaccinated?

The County of Lake's Public Health Division again looks to our community to help us understand the barriers keeping Lake County residents from getting the COVIC-19 vaccine. With businesses and activities in Lake County and California more fully reopened, we are planning our next steps to get the vaccine to as many people as possible. Your unique experience and feedback continue to drive our efforts! Thank you for taking a few minutes to complete our Vaccine Survey, available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/LakeVaccineWebSurvey.


CDPH Updates Mask Guidance

Effective June 15, 2021, masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals*, except in the following settings where masks are required for everyone, regardless of vaccination status:

  • On public transit
  • Indoors in K-12 schools, childcare and other youth settings (pending update)
  • Healthcare settings (including long term care facilities)
  • State and local correctional facilities and detention centers
  • Homeless shelters, emergency shelters and cooling centers

Additionally, masks are required for unvaccinated individuals in indoor public settings and businesses (examples: retail, restaurants, theaters, family entertainment centers, meetings, state and local government offices serving the public).

In settings where masks are required only for unvaccinated individuals, businesses, venue operators or hosts may choose to:

  • Provide information to all patrons, guests and attendees regarding vaccination requirements and allow vaccinated individuals to self-attest that they are in compliance prior to entry.
  • Implement vaccine verification to determine whether individuals are required to wear a mask.
  • Require all patrons to wear masks.
No person can be prevented from wearing a mask as a condition of participation in an activity or entry into a business.

The full guideline and exemptions can be found at www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/guidance-for-face-coverings.aspx.
