California Department of Public Health Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings
July 3, 2020
On June 18, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued guidance mandating individuals in California wear a face covering in certain settings. 

In part, this mandate specifies that individuals engaged in work, whether at the workplace or offsite, must wear face coverings when:

  1. Interacting in-person with any member of the public; 
  2. Working in any space visited by members of the public, regardless of whether anyone from the public is present at the time; 
  3. Working in any space where food is prepared or packaged for sale or distribution to others; 
  4. Working in or walking through common areas, such as hallways, stairways, elevators, and parking facilities; 
  5. In any room or enclosed area where other people (except for members of the person’s own household or residence) are present when unable to physically distance.
