July 28, 2021 CDPH Masking Recommendation— Indoor Public Settings

On July 28, 2021, the California Department of Public Health (“CDPH”) updated its Masking Guidance after review of current CDC recommendations, and the CDPH now recommends indoor masking for all in-public settings regardless of vaccination status. Unvaccinated individuals are still required to be masked in all indoor public settings with some exceptions. This does not change more restrictive local guidance (e.g., LA County and Yolo County), and C.A.R. recommends that you check your local rules. While the Cal/OSHA Emergency Temporary Standards allow vaccinated employees to be unmasked indoors if the employer follows certain requirements, it is anticipated that Cal/OSHA may be updated to address this new CDC recommendation.
