If you are a vulnerable person* or live with a vulnerable person*, consider taking additional precautions.

*Those that are vulnerable include the unvaccinated, those that are immunocompromised, have certain disabilities, or have underlying health conditions, and those at risk of severe illness of death if they are infected with COVID-19.  Such persons should consider taking extra precautions.

The following individuals are NOT REQUIRED to wear a mask (CDPH):

The following individuals are exempt from wearing masks at all times (CDPH):

- Persons younger than two years old. Very young children must not wear a mask because of the risk of suffocation.
