Latest Information - August 2, 2021

As you may have already heard, consistent with the guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the County of Santa Clara has issued new Health Orders requiring all individuals to wear face coverings indoors regardless of vaccination status, with limited exceptions, effective at 12:01 a.m., Tuesday, August 3, 2021. The CDC and County also recommend that all employers make face coverings available to individuals entering their businesses, and businesses are required to implement the indoor face-covering orders. The health officer will continue to monitor the data, including vaccination rates throughout the region, to determine when the orders can be adjusted or lifted.

FAQs for Universal Indoor Face Covering Order of August 2, 2021 

Vaccines remain the most powerful tool in the fight against COVID-19, including the Delta variant. Nonetheless, the Delta variant is infecting a small percentage of the vaccinated in the Bay Area. However, vaccinated individuals remain strongly protected against severe illness, hospitalization, and death. In those instances of infection in a vaccinated person, a face-covering prevents further spread. Bay Area health officials urge all unvaccinated residents 12 years old and older, and all eligible people, to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

More information on the County's health order can be found on the Public Health Orders web page.
