‘Beyond the Blueprint’

As of June 15, according to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) memo dated May 21, the state will be moving beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy introduced last summer to limit transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

Verification of being fully vaccinated or having a negative COVID-19 test will be required before entry for indoor mega-events (more than 5,000 attendees) and recommended for outdoor mega-events (more than 10,000 attendees).

The mega-events will no longer have capacity limitations, and the physical distancing restrictions will be lifted for fully vaccinated attendees, customers, and guests.

Examples of indoor mega events include conventions, conferences, expos, sporting events, and concerts. Examples of outdoor mega events include music or food festivals, car shows, large endurance events and marathons, parades, sporting events, and concerts.

Mask requirements must follow the CDPH guidance, which includes the following:

• Fully vaccinated persons aren’t required to wear face coverings outdoors except when attending crowded outdoor events.

• Unvaccinated persons must wear face coverings outdoors anytime physical distancing can’t be maintained, including while attending crowded outdoor events.

• Regardless of vaccination status, face coverings must be worn in indoor settings outside one’s home, including public transportation, with some exceptions.
