COVID-19 Resources

As of August 18, 2021, under the Beyond the Blueprint, the California Department of Public Health has identified “Mega Events” as crowds greater than 1,000 attendees for indoor events and crowds greater than 10,000 attendees for outdoor events.  While proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results (within 72 hours) are recommended, self-attestation is acceptable thru September 19, 2021, with rights reserved to the venue and or event operator to impose tighter restrictions. Beginning September 20, 2021 the self-attestation allowance will end for indoor mega events and it will be mandatory for all attendees to provide proof of vaccination or negative test results. 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.  This will remain in effect until November 1, 2021.
