FACE MASK GUIDELINES
The COVID-19 vaccines remain effective in preventing serious disease, hospitalization, and death from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Vaccination continues to remain the ultimate exit strategy out of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the percentage of Californians fully vaccinated and boosted continues to increase, we continue to have areas of the state where vaccine coverage is low, putting individuals and communities at greater risk for COVID-19.
As of March 11, 2022, the universal masking requirement for k-12 and childcare settings has terminated. CDPH strongly recommends that individuals in these settings continue to mask in indoor settings.
As part of the Cal/OSHA and CDPH current guidelines, if you return to work with a negative test result before your 10-day quarantine period ends, you are required to wear a well-fitted mask until the 10-day quarantine period ends.
Also, if you are exposed to someone that has tested positive, staff are required to wear a well-fitted mask for 10 days after exposure and required to test 3 to 5 days after exposure.
