Frequently Asked Questions

Masks with a one-way valve (typically a raised plastic cylinder about the size of a quarter on the front or side of the mask) are designed for industrial use, such as construction or carpentry work, to protect the user from inhaling dust and certain particles encountered during sanding projects, sawing, sweeping, etc.  While these masks may protect the wearer from breathing particles, the valve also permits respiratory droplets to exit the mask, putting others nearby at risk. 

The purpose of the State of California's facial covering guidelines is to prevent the spread of respiratory droplets from one wearer to another. COVID-19 can be spread by people who do not have symptoms and do not know that they are infected. Use of face coverings lowers the risk that an undiagnosed carrier will transmit it to others.

Wearing a mask with a valve makes it impossible to keep with the spirit of ‘your mask protects me, my mask protects you.'

Any mask that incorporates a one-way valve is not a proper Face Covering under the California Department of Public Health's facial covering guidelines of and is not to be used to comply with federal, state, local and individual business requirements for masking around other people.  A store or business can prohibit you from entering the building if you do not have a face covering or if you are wearing a mask with a valve.

Nearly all COVID-19 vaccines administered in the United States require two shots with the exception of Johnson and Johnson which is one dose. The initial vaccine and the second vaccine must be from the same vaccine company (e.g., you cannot mix Moderna and Pfizer).  The first shot starts building protection, but everyone must come back 3-4 weeks later for the second one to get the most protection the vaccine can offer. The first shot primes the immune system, helping it recognize the virus, and the second shot strengthens the immune response.

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were the first to be approved. Johnson and Johnson is also approved for use. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines requires two doses three to four weeks apart. The Johnson and Johnson is one dose.

Yes. On April 6, 2021, the Governor announced that California will fully open its economy on June 15 if two criteria are met:
• If vaccine supply is sufficient for Californians 16 years and older who wish to be inoculated; and
• If hospitalization rates are stable and low.
The State and county are on target to meet these criteria. We anticipate industry guidance will be updated at that time.
