Vaccinated Californians lead the state’s unmasking
SACRAMENTO – (INT) – Beginning Tuesday, those who’ve been vaccinated against the coronavirus will be able to resume their everyday activities without wearing a mask.
There are exceptions.
Californians will still be required to mask-up in public transit, at schools, childcare centers, 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).
For the unvaccinated, masks will be required in indoor public settings and businesses.
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has not said how the remaining masking requirements will be enforced.
As of June 15th, Restaurants, bars, retail stores, theaters, hotels and entertainment centers may return to usual operations — meaning no capacity limitations and no requirements for social distancing.
All of California's restrictions on travel outside the state will be lifted, and the state says it is not considering creating a vaccine passport.
