The L.A. County Health Officer Order was recently modified to align with the State on masking guidance, requirements for workplaces to adhere to Cal/OSHA standards, and sector-specific protocols that remain in place for indoor K-12 schools, daycares, camps, and high-risk congregate settings. Currently, Cal/OSHA standards continue to require distancing and masking for all employees.

Masks are not required for fully vaccinated people, except in the certain settings where masks are required for everyone, regardless of vaccination status including public transit and in transportation hubs; indoors in K-12 schools, child care, and other youth settings; healthcare settings, including long term care facilities; state and local correctional facilities and detention centers; and homeless shelters, emergency shelters, and cooling centers.

People who are not fully vaccinated, including all children between the ages of 2 and 12, are required to wear masks at all indoor public settings and businesses including retail, restaurants, theatres, family entertainment centers, meetings, and state and local government offices serving the public.

Everyone can remove their masks outdoors, except people who are not fully vaccinated attending large outdoor events.

The County’s travel guidance was also modified and aligns with State and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on travel. Do not travel if you are sick, you have a recent positive COVID-19 viral test result, or you are waiting for the results of a COVID-19 viral test after being exposed to the virus. You could spread COVID-19 to others.
