Indoor Masking Requirements As CDC Updates Its Guidance

Los Angeles County and the City of Los Angeles have updated their indoor masking rules, providing businesses with two exemptions. Under Option 1, fully vaccinated individuals can be mask-free indoors with proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test. Option 2 allows fully vaccinated customers to be unmasked indoors while employees must remain masked. The CDC's new guidance factors in COVID-19 community risk levels to determine the need for indoor masking, with about 30-40% of the country still listed as "High" risk. Click here for article.

  • Options for Businesses: Businesses can choose between allowing all fully vaccinated individuals to be mask-free indoors or only permitting fully vaccinated customers to be unmasked while employees remain masked.

  • Verification Requirements: Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test is required for individuals opting to be mask-free indoors. This includes reviewing photo ID and vaccination cards or test results.

  • CDC's Community Risk Assessment: The CDC analyzes factors like new COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations to determine the risk level in each community, guiding decisions on indoor masking requirements.

  • Employee Respirator Provision: Businesses opting for either exemption must offer respirators (N95, KN95/KF94) to all employees at the employer's expense.
