When to Wear a Mask Update

As of January 19, 2023 Masks are still required in some settings and strong recommended in others in Los Angeles County. 

Please refer to the When You Need to Wear A Mask document for the most accurate guidance for mask wearing.  This information is also summarized in the Health Officer Order and the LA County COVID-19 Response Plan.

You* MUST wear a mask (*see flyer - some people should not wear a mask):

  • In healthcare settings (including long-term care settings and adult/senior care facilities).
  • In places where it is required by the site, including business, schools, and workplaces.
  • If you have COVID-19. You must wear a highly protective mask if you need to be around others, including at home, until you end isolation. If you are eligible to end isolation after Day 5 because you have a negative test result, it is strongly recommended that you continue to wear a mask through Day 10. In workplace settings, you must wear a mask through Day 10.
  • If you are a close contact to someone with COVID-19. You must wear a highly protective mask when you are around others indoors for 10 days after your last day of exposure.
  • Where required by public health for managing an outbreak at your workplace, school, or the congregate setting where you live.

It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you wear a mask (unless required - see You Must Wear a Mask above)

  • In indoor public places if you are at risk for severe illness, especially if crowded or poorly ventilated. Wear a highly protective mask when you are in these settings.
  • On all forms of public transit, including trains, buses, shuttle buses, taxis, ride-shares, and medical transport.
  • In all transportation hubs, including airport and bus terminals, train and subway stations, seaports or other indoor port terminals, or any other indoor area that serves as a transportation hub.

No one can be prevented from wearing a mask to participate in an activity or enter a business.

Other pertinent information and resources can be found on the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health website at http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/

Thank you for your ongoing efforts to protect health and well-being in Los Angeles County.
