Updated Face Coverings Guidance to Take Effect on June 15
CDPH today released updated Guidance for Face Coverings to align with CDC Guidance, which will go into effect on June 15, when the state reopens its economy and moves Beyond the Blueprint.

Beginning June 15, fully vaccinated people will be able to resume everyday activities without wearing a mask. Masks will be required for unvaccinated individuals in indoor public settings and businesses. Masks will be required in some limited situations regardless of vaccination status including on public transit, at schools and childcare centers (pending updated CDC guidance), in healthcare and long-term care facilities, in prisons, and at emergency or homeless shelters.
In workplaces, employers are subject to the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) or the CalOSHA Aerosol Transmissible Diseases Standard, and should consult those regulations for additional applicable requirements.

NEW CAL/OSHA RULES EXCESSIVELY BURDEN BUSINESSES
Businesses must navigate an increasingly complex labyrinth of regulations to ensure compliance with Cal/OSHA standards as employees return to the workplace. The Cal/OSHA Standards Board passed confusing new mandates that go beyond federal and state guidance, including requiring workers to wear masks indoors unless everyone is vaccinated and requiring employers to provide N-95 masks to unvaccinated employees. The Cal/OSHA Standards Board has called a special meeting for this evening (June 9) to potentially reconsider these mask rules after pushback from the business community and the general public. The Standards Board's next regular meeting is on June 17 (two days after the economy effectively reopens on June 15). Stay tuned for more info on continuing developments on these standards.
