Universal Masking Indoors

December 15, 2021 - February 15, 2022

Beginning December 15, 2021, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is requiring masks to be worn in indoor public settings statewide, regardless of vaccination status in an effort to ensure:
  • We protect the health and well-being of all Californians.
  • We keep schools open.
  • We keep our economy open.
COVID-19 vaccines remain effective in preventing serious disease, hospitalization, and death from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. However, since Thanksgiving:
  • California's seven-day average case rate has increased 47%.
  • California's hospitalizations have increased by 14%.
  • The state's hospital census is at or above capacity.
  • Even a moderate surge in in cases and hospitalizations could impact our health care delivery system.

In workplaces, employers are subject to the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention ETS or in some workplaces the Cal/OSHA Aerosol Transmissible Diseases (ATD) and should consult those regulations for additional applicable requirements.
