What does the June 15 'return to normal business in California' look like in health facilities?
In anticipation of the State of California resuming normal business, DAP Health is following the continued requirement of CDPH and Cal OSHA and masks will still be required by all individuals (employees, volunteers, patients, and clients) in our facilities. Per OSHA guidelines, all healthcare settings are included in the new guidance for continuing the use of face coverings. This includes wearing a mask in the Wellness Center while in groups, meetings, and yoga classes within the building. We thank you for your continued cooperation and for helping us keep others safe.
For more information, you may view the upcoming release from the CDPH (California Department of Public Health) here.
Below is a summary:
Guidance for Individuals
Masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals, except in the following settings where masks are required for everyone, regardless of vaccination status:
On public transit (examples: airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subways, buses, taxis, and ride-shares) and in transportation hubs (examples: airport, bus terminal, marina, train station, seaport or other port, subway station, or any other area that provides transportation)
Note: This may change as updated K-12 schools guidance is forthcoming, pending updates for K-12 operational guidance from the CDC.
Additionally, masks are required** for unvaccinated individuals in indoor public settings and businesses (examples: retail, restaurants, theaters, family entertainment centers, meetings, state and local government offices serving the public).
For additional information, individuals should refer to CDC Recommendations for Safer Activities (see CDPH Masking Guidance Frequently Asked Questions for more information).
