LA County Masking Guidelines For Fully Vaccinated People

Burbank, CA (May 14, 2021) - A message from L.A. County regarding masking guidelines for fully vaccinated people:

Yesterday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released guidance indicating that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely resume activities that were done prior to the pandemic.

L.A. County and the State will review the recommendations in order to make sensible adjustments.  In the interim, please note that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask when indoors around other fully vaccinated people, or outside in uncrowded areas.  When at businesses and in crowded venues, both indoors and outdoors, masks are still required to be worn by everyone.  It remains important to protect workers at all worksites and all worksites must follow the requirements set forth by California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health, Cal/OSHA.  Everyone must continue to adhere to required distancing and masking at all workplaces.

Proposed changes to Cal/OSHA's workplace safety standards were posted for consideration at the 5/20 standards board meeting.  We expect to hear more about these changes once the standards board meets.  Until Cal/OSHA changes these requirements, the County cannot be less restrictive.
