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.

Placer County Public Health issues new COVID-19 health warning

The Delta surge has resulted in record numbers of COVID-related hospitalizations this week and is leaving local hospitals with less room to absorb more patients requiring hospitalization. Hospitals in Placer County are providing critical care in areas not typically designed for that purpose, report a high level of acuity in their patients, and are experiencing strains on their workforce. COVID patients occupy nearly one third of licensed beds, a higher share relative to hospitals in other communities.
