In San Diego County, current facial covering guidelines still in effect

The County of San Diego will follow state guidance regarding facial coverings until the expected full reopening of the California economy on June 15.

The California Department of Public Health announced today that facial coverings will continue to be required in most indoor settings for another four weeks. This will allow Californians, especially children 12 and older who only last week became eligible for Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, to get vaccinated.

The current CDPH face covering guidance allows fully vaccinated people to gather outdoors without a facial covering, except when in crowded settings. Unvaccinated people should wear face coverings outdoors whenever physical distancing cannot be maintained.

Face coverings are required in most indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. More information about the current face covering guidance is available here.
