Here is a message from California Department of Public Health
Your actions save lives! As California reopens, Californians must follow best practices: wear a face covering, wash your hands, stay home when sick.
Cloth face coverings or masks help reduce the spread of coronavirus especially when combined with physical distancing and frequent hand washing. Starting June 18, Californians must wear face coverings in common and public indoor spaces and outdoors when distancing is not possible.
Who needs a mask?
- Anyone going outside their home
- Workers in customer-facing industries
- Workers in offices, factories, or any group setting
- Doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals
- And other workers, as dictated by industry guidance
Who shouldn’t wear a mask?
- Children under 2 years old
- Anyone with respiratory issues where it would impede their breathing
- Anyone unable to remove the mask without help
When should you wear a mask?
You should wear a mask whenever you’ll be around someone you don’t live with, including:
- In any indoor public space
- When waiting in line
- When getting health care
- On public transportation or when ride-sharing
- At work
Can I take my mask off in public?
There are times when it’s okay to take your mask off, such as:
- When eating or drinking
- If a hearing-impaired person needs to read your lips
- If wearing a mask imposes a risk to you at work
- When you are getting a service to the nose or face
- When exercising in public and can stay six feet from others
