Alert South Bay: Regional Message on COVID-19 Threat – Key Message

May 21, 2021


Today the California Governor’s Office announced new details on the “full reopening” that starts June 15, 2021. There will be no capacity restrictions or physical distancing requirements. California Department of Public Health mask rules must be followed. This means vaccinated individuals do not need to wear masks in most situations, even indoors. Travelers must follow CDC and state travel recommendations. Indoor ‘mega events’ will require additional restrictions that can include proof of vaccination or recent negative covid-19 test.

The State will keep current masking guidance until June 15, and L.A. County will do the same. This means that LA County Department of Public Health’s guidance remains aligned with the local Health Officer Order of May 3 until further notice.

Workplaces remain under Cal/OSHA masking and distancing requirements, which have not yet been changed. And for unvaccinated people, masks are still required outdoors any time distancing cannot be maintained.
