OC HEALTH CARE AGENCY
To help prevent the spread of droplets containing COVID-19, masks are required for all Orange County residents and visitors 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: airports, bus terminals, marinas, train stations, ports, subway stations or any other areas that provide transportation).
• Indoors in schools/childcare centers. • Emergency shelters.
Masks are required for all individuals in the following indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status (and surgical masks are recommended):
• Healthcare settings.
• State and local correctional facilities and detention centers.
• Homeless shelters.
• Long-term care settings, and 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).
Face shields may be worn by people who cannot wear a face covering due to a medical condition or other exemption, although they may not work as well as to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others.
