COVID-19 Resources

Beginning January 15, 2022, under the Beyond the Blueprint, the California Department of Public Health has identified “Mega Events” as crowds greater than 500 attendees for indoor events and crowds greater than 5,000 attendees for outdoor events.  Proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results within 1 day for an antigen test and 2 days for a PCR test prior to the event are mandatory for all attendees for indoor mega events. Proof of vaccination or negative test results will remain a recommendation for outdoor mega events and self-attestation will be allowed at the discretion of venue and or event operator.

In settings where masks are required only for unvaccinated individuals, businesses, venue operators or hosts may choose to:

  • Provide information to all patrons, guests and attendees regarding vaccination requirements and allow vaccinated individuals to self-attest that they are in compliance prior to entry.
  • Implement vaccine verification to determine whether individuals are required to wear a mask.
  • Require all patrons to wear masks.
  • No person can be prevented from wearing a mask as a condition of participation in an activity or entry into a business.
