Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19)

Thanks to millions of vaccinations, California’s economy is open. There are no county tiers, capacity limits, or physical distancing requirements. But COVID-19 has not gone away. To safely go about our daily lives, we need to keep taking steps to prevent the spread.






If you’re 12 or older, get vaccinated. It’s our best tool to end the pandemic. Vaccination is safe, effective, and free.


Wear a mask to keep from spreading the virus to those with no defense, like the immune-compromised and children under 12.


Get tested for COVID-19 if you may have been exposed. It’s free and confidential for everyone in California.


Exposure notifications

Turn on exposure notifications in your Apple or Android phone. CA Notify can then alert you if you’ve been near someone who tested positive.

Education and childcare

As kids return to in-person learning, find out requirements for masking, vaccinating, and testing.

Workplace safety

Employers are responsible for keeping the work environment safe. See the state’s rules and standards to support this.



Mega-events are indoor events with 1,000 or more people and outdoor events with 10,000 or more people. Attendee rules apply for each.


Keep California healthy and our communities open by following CDC travel guidelines.
