Indoor mask order issued in Santa Cruz County

SANTA CRUZ COUNTY HEALTH OFFICER ISSUES ORDER REQUIRING USE OF FACE COVERINGS IN INDOOR SETTINGS

Order goes into effect November 21

With COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations increasing as we move into the holidays and winter months, the Santa Cruz County Health Officer is issuing a Health Order, effective November 21, 2021 at 11:59 p.m., requiring all individuals to wear a face covering when indoors regardless of vaccination status.

Masks must be worn in private settings, including your home, when non- household members are present. To help assure compliance, all businesses and governmental entities must require employees to wear masks and post signage that is clearly visible and easy-to-read at all entry points for indoor settings informing the public of the mask requirement.

Those working in a closed room or office alone or with members of their household do not have to wear a mask, and masks are not required during indoor activities where they cannot be worn safely such as eating, drinking, swimming, showering in a fitness facility, or obtaining medical or cosmetic services.

The face covering order will remain in effect until it is rescinded, superseded, or amended in writing by the Health Officer, taking into account hospitalizations, variants of concern, case and vaccination rates.

For information on COVID-19 vaccine and a list of vaccine providers, go to www.santacruzhealth.org/coronavirusvaccine,

or call (831) 454-4242 between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm., Monday through Friday.

Con los casos del COVID-19 y las hospitalizaciones aumentando a medida que avanzamos hacia las vacaciones y los meses de invierno, el Oficial de Salud del Condado de Santa Cruz está emitiendo una Orden de Salud, vigente desde el 21 de noviembre de 2021 a las 11:59 pm, requiriendo a todas las personas usar una cubierta facial cuando estén en interiores, sin importar su estado de vacunación.

Las cubiertas faciales deben usarse en lugares privados, incluyendo su hogar cuando haya personas que no viven en su residencia. Para ayudar a garantizar el cumplimiento, todas los negocios y oficinas gubernamentales deben exigir a los empleados que usen cubiertas faciales y coloquen carteles que sean claramente visibles y fáciles de leer en todos los puntos de entrada, informando al público sobre el requisito del uso de cubiertas faciales.

Aquellos que trabajan solos en una oficina cerrada o con miembros de su hogar no tienen que usar una cubierta facial, y no se requieren cubiertas faciales durante las actividades en interiores donde no se pueden usar de manera segura, como comer, beber, nadar, ducharse en un gimnasio, u obtener servicios médicos o cosméticos.

La orden de cubiertas faciales permanecerá en vigor hasta que sea anulada, reemplazada o enmendada por escrito por el Oficial de Salud, tomando en cuenta las hospitalizaciones, variantes de preocupación, casos y tasas de vacunación.

Para obtener información sobre la vacuna y una lista de proveedores, visite www.santacruzhealth.org/coronavirusvaccine,

o llame al (831) 454-4242 entre las 8am y las 5 pm, de lunes a viernes.
