Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19)

Vaccinate Glenn. Together we can end this pandemic.


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.


Protect yourself and others by keeping these common-sense safety steps in mind.

Do

Don't

Get vaccinated

Lose your proof of vaccination

Wear a mask where required, in public indoor spaces, and on public transit Think you can’t get the virus or pass it on because you feel well
Turn on exposure notifications on your phone Assume everyone is vaccinated
Get tested if you’re sick Expect all COVID-19 rules everywhere to be lifted
Honor mask rules in place at a private business Travel into the U.S. without proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test
Get tested if required by your workplace Attend large events if you’re sick
Wear a mask when you travel Travel if you’re sick

Vaccinations

Get vaccinated, and get your kids 5 and older vaccinated. It’s our best tool to end the pandemic. Vaccination is safe, effective, and free.

Masks

Wear a mask to keep from spreading the virus to those with no defense, like the immune-compromised and children under 5.

Testing

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 the 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.
