State Requires Workers In Health Care Settings Be Fully Vaccinated, Plus Verification of Visitor Vaccination Status   

In response to increasing COVID-19 hospitalizations and ICU patients due to the highly contagious Delta variant, and to further protect vulnerable Californians and health care workers, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) today issued two new public health orders. The first order requires workers in health care settings to be fully vaccinated or receive their second dose by September 30, 2021. This order applies to workers in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and in most other health care settings. 

The second public health order directs hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and intermediate care facilities to verify that visitors are fully vaccinated or have tested negative for COVID-19 in the prior 72 hours before indoor visits. Updates to guidance for visitors to other long-term care facilities is expected in the near future. 

Health care facilities are high-risk settings where COVID-19 outbreaks can have severe consequences for vulnerable populations including hospitalization, severe illness, and death. By requiring health care workers to be fully vaccinated and visitors to acute care facilities to demonstrate they are fully vaccinated or have tested negative for COVID-19, CDPH is protecting the most vulnerable individuals, while also protecting workers in these settings.

Wear A Mask: Stop the Spread of The Delta Variant 

A new health order requiring the use of face coverings indoors went into effect on August 3 for Marin County.  The order directs that face coverings shall be worn, regardless of vaccination status, over the mouth and nose, in all indoor public settings , venues, gatherings, and workplaces, such as: offices, retail stores, restaurants and bars, theaters, family entertainment centers, conference centers, and State and local government offices serving the public.  

When you visit a local indoor business, please wear your mask. The Delta variant is different: it’s much more infectious than previous mutations of the COVID-19 virus. While the majority of new cases have been among the unvaccinated, a small number of breakthrough cases have occurred. Vaccination is still our best tool at ending the pandemic, and when combined with the use of masks, provides a greater safeguard against virus spread and serious illness. This health order is a short-term, evidence-based strategy to respond to the Delta variant while keeping our businesses open and supporting a safe reopening of schools.
