COVID-19 Information

California fully reopened the economy on June 15*. Restaurants, shopping malls, movie theaters, and most everyday places are operating as normal – with no capacity limits or physical distancing required. **However, everyone is still required to follow masking guidelines in select settings. Some restrictions also still exist for large events.

Of course, anyone can wear a mask anytime they’d like, especially around children and others who are vulnerable or not yet eligible for vaccination.

California will keep a close eye on covid-19 vaccination and infection rates over the summer and will review these guidelines by September 1, 2021.

*See the full Beyond the Blueprint guidance. Read the Beyond the Blueprint Q&A.

**This does not apply to schools, health care settings and some other public settings. Local health jurisdictions may impose stricter criteria. Employers are subject to the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) if applicable.
