Face Covering Information


As of March 2022, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has adjusted the following masking guidance:

  • As of March 1st – General Indoor Public Settings – Face Coverings are no longer required for unvaccinated individuals, but still strongly recommended.


CDPH is maintaining the masking requirements in specified high-risk settings, consistent with CDC recommendations. This allows us to continue protecting our most vulnerable populations and the workforce that delivers critical services in these settings. Masks are still required in the following locations for ALL individuals regardless of their vaccination status:

CDPH is maintaining the requirement that businesses and venue operators, including K-12 school and childcare settings, must allow any individual to wear a mask if they desire to. Additionally, CDPH strongly recommends masks for all persons, regardless of vaccine status, in indoor public settings and businesses (examples: retail, restaurants, theaters, family entertainment centers, meetings, state and local government offices serving the public).

>> Surgical masks or higher-level respirators (e.g., N95s, KN95s, and KF94s) with good fit are still highly recommended

Guidance for Businesses: In workplaces, employers are subject to the CalOSHA COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) or in some workplaces the Cal/OSHA Aerosol Transmissible Diseases (ATD) Standard and should consult those regulations for additional applicable requirements.

When wearing a mask, consistent and correct use is important: It is only effective if it is worn over your mouth and nose.

Poor Fitting Mask: A poor fitting mask is not effective. If there are gaps between the face and mask, such as above the nose or at the sides, air that has virus particles can leak in or out around the sides of the mask.
Good Fitting Mask: An effective and well fitted mask has no gaps between the face and mask. Good fit forces the air that you breathe out and breathe in to go through the mask and be filtered. Good filtration blocks the virus particles from going through the mask itself.
