Emergency Order #16 was released on April 29 and took effect on May 5. Order #16 increases gathering limits and capacity limits for all businesses.
We are reviewing the latest CDC guidance that vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks in most indoor public spaces. People who are vaccinated can be confident that their choice to roll up their sleeve has not only helped protect them and their loved ones, but has also helped our community reopen safely. We are currently evaluating our existing public health orders and plan to have an update next week on May 18, 2021.
The intention of this order is not penalize individuals but to keep everyone safe during the pandemic. Please email us if you believe a business is operating unlawfully.
For employees returning to a work environment that is not following the orders and are concerned about their safety, please review our fact sheet, workplace requirements for employers and workers.
