California only plans to drop indoor mask requirements for those who are fully vaccinated from June 15.
On Monday, Governor Gavin Newsom’s administration announced that California will not be aligning with the CDC’s most recent mask guidance, until the full reopening next month. Meaning, masks will still be required for most indoor and outdoor settings in L.A.
The June 15 target reopening is designed to give businesses time to prepare for the new health and safety measures, along with other operational changes that will come with the return to an open state.
Currently, the state allows vaccinated people to be outdoors without wearing face coverings and to gather with other vaccinated people indoors.
While California relaxed its mask regulations enough to allow vaccinated people to go maskless in outdoor settings and indoor gatherings with other vaccinated people, those regulations will still not apply for public indoor settings for another month.
