Current Health Rules

The Governor ordered the California economy to reopen on June 15, 2021, and the resumption of most normal business operations and activities. The California Department of Public Health still requires the use of face coverings by vaccinated individuals in some circumstances. Face coverings are required for unvaccinated individuals in indoor public settings and businesses, with some exemptions. New, less restrictive rules on wearing masks in the workplace were announced on June 17, 2021.

COVID-19 tests are available at pharmacies, clinics and many other locations. Residents can also order at-home tests from the County.
