Update Applicable to:
All businesses in the county of Los Angeles and in the state of California that provide public indoor spaces

What happened?
In our previous communication here, we informed you that California reinstated the indoor mask mandate from December 15, 2021, to January 15, 2022. This is an update to that mandate.

What are the details?
In December 2021, the CDPH announced the requirement that all individuals must wear face coverings in all “indoor public settings” regardless of vaccination status from December 15, 2021, through January 15, 2022.

California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly announced that this mandate will now extend through February 15, 2022 — and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health released a mask mandate of its own.

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued an updated order that requires employers to provide employees who work indoors and in close contact with other workers or the public, with medical-grade masks, surgical masks, or higher-level respirators, such as N95, at all times while indoors or at the worksite, no later than January 17, 2022.
