California Reinstates Indoor Masking For All During the Holidays

Citing a spike in new COVID cases following the Thanksgiving holiday, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has issued an indoor mask mandate that will remain in place through January 15, 2022.

Starting December 15, 2021, all persons, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask in all indoor public settings.  

California employers located in counties that do not currently have a mask mandate should immediately review their policies and practices to ensure all employees are masking up indoors, even if vaccinated.
