Everyday Life in The Community
California fully reopened the economy on June 15, 2021. Everyday life will feel a lot like before COVID-19. Restaurants, shopping malls, movie theaters, and most everyday places will be open as normal with no capacity limits or social distancing required. In some indoor settings outside of one's home, including public transportation, face coverings continue to be required regardless of vaccination status except as outlined below. Of course, anyone can wear a mask anytime they’d like, especially around children and others who are vulnerable or not yet eligible for vaccination.
Solano County will continue to directly align with State guidance. The local Health Order has been lifted and there will be no additional restrictions imposed in Solano. California will keep a close eye on COVID-19 vaccination and infection rates over the summer and keep these guidelines in place until at least September 1, 2021.
Just remember to be patient with your fellow citizens, business owners, and public employees. It will take time for people to adjust, and we ask that you respect everyone’s individual right to decide how to move forward at a pace that they are comfortable with. Visit the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) website for more information on how to protect yourself and your family.
Vaccination Verification Guidance for Businesses, Venues or Hosts
In settings where masks are required only for unvaccinated individuals, businesses, venue operators or hosts may choose to:
- Provide information to all patrons, guests and attendees regarding vaccination requirements and allow vaccinated individuals to self-attest that they are fully vaccinated or meet an approved masking exemption prior to entry.
- Implement vaccine verification to determine whether individuals are required to wear a mask.
- Require all patrons to wear masks
No person can be prevented from wearing a mask as a condition of participation in an activity or entry into a business.
Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record (DCVR) Troubleshooting
The State of California's Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record (DCVR) Portal allows Californians to download their COVID-19 vaccination record. In order for you to obtain your record:
COVID-19 vaccination information must have been submitted to the California Immunization Registry (CAIR2, SDIR, and RIDE) by your vaccination provider
All the information you enter into the DCVR Portal must match your record in the registry
To update or add your contact information, please use our Troubleshooting Form.
If your record still isn’t found, you may need to correct or update your immunization record. Follow the troubleshooting tips at cdph.ca.gov/covidvaccinerecord or call 833-422-4255
Vaccine Record Guidelines & Standards for both employers and individuals can be found at the CDPH Website: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/Vaccine-Record-Guidelines-Standards.aspx

All Californians will continue to follow State masking guidelines:
Masks are required for all individuals in the following indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status:
- On public transit (examples: airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subways, buses, taxis, and ride-shares) and in transportation hubs (examples: airport, bus terminal, marina, train station, seaport or other port, subway station, or any other area that provides transportation)
- Indoors in K-12 schools, childcare

Masks are required for all individuals, in the following indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status (and surgical masks are recommended):
- Healthcare settings

- Homeless shelters
- Long Term Care Settings & Adult and Senior Care Facilities
- Additionally, masks are required* for unvaccinated individuals in indoor public settings and businesses (examples: retail, restaurants, theaters, family entertainment centers, meetings, state and local government offices serving the public).
The following specific settings are exempt from face covering requirements:
- Persons in a car alone or solely with members of their own household,
- Persons who are working alone in a closed office or room,
- Persons who are obtaining a medical or cosmetic service involving the nose or face for which temporary removal of the face covering is necessary to perform the service,
- Workers who wear respiratory protection, or
- Persons who are specifically exempted from wearing face coverings by other CDPH guidance.
· The following individuals are exempt from wearing face coverings at all times:
- Persons younger than two years old. Very young children must not wear a face covering because of the risk of suffocation.
- Persons with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a face covering. This includes persons with a medical condition for whom wearing a face covering could obstruct breathing or who are unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove a face covering without assistance.*
- Persons who are hearing impaired, or communicating with a person who is hearing impaired, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication.
- Persons for whom wearing a face covering would create a risk to the person related to their work, as determined by local, state, or federal regulators or workplace safety guidelines.
*Note: Persons exempted from wearing a face covering due to a medical condition who are employed in a job involving regular contact with others must wear a non-restrictive alternative, such as a face shield with a drape on the bottom edge, as long as their condition permits it.

Businesses & Employers
Although the California Economy will be fully reopened on June 15, 2021 it is important to remember that the COVID-19 pandemic is not over. The risk for COVID-19 exposure and infection will continue to remain until we reach community immunity from vaccinations.
On June 17, 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board voted to end social distancing and face covering requirements for vaccinated employees in the workplace. On this same day, Governor Newsom signed an executive order enabling the revisions to take effect immediately.
CalOSHA is a stand-alone entity and not governed by the CDC or CDPH guidance. Employers are required to follow CalOSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standards to prevent exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace. These standards apply to most workers in California not covered by CalOSHA’s Aerosol Transmissible Disease Standard.
Cal/OSHA has launched a call center to assist workers with questions specifically related to COVID-19.
The Cal/OSHA Call Center number is:
Employers are required to notify local public health agencies of all workplace outbreaks, which are defined as three or more laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 among employees who live in different households within a two-week period. Employers must notify local public health agencies of outbreaks within 48 hours of becoming aware of the number of cases that meets the definition of an outbreak. The employer must notify the local public health agency in the jurisdiction of the worksite of the names, phone number, occupation, and worksite of employees who may have COVID-19 or who are under a COVID-19 isolation order from a public health official. Employers must also report the business address and NAICS industry code of the worksite where the infected or quarantined individuals work. An employer that has an outbreak subject to these provisions must continue to give notice to the local health department of any subsequent laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the worksite.

Events & Travel
Some public health measures will remain for mega events, which include 5,000+ people indoors or 10,000+ outdoors. Think concerts, sporting events, festivals, and conventions. Mega events are high risk for spreading COVID-19 because they attract people from around the world, and people gather in crowds.
Indoor mega event attendees will be required to confirm proof of vaccination or negative covid-19 status to attend. Outdoor mega event attendees will be strongly encouraged to do so but not required.
