COVID-19 Indoor Mask Mandate for January 2022
The Rim of the World Recreation and Park District is a California Special District and local public agency and therefore must follow California mandates.
Due to a recent increase in cases, the California Department of Public Health, CDPH, has mandated that everyone in California wear a mask in indoor public spaces and workplaces regardless of vaccination status. The order is in effect December 15, 2021 to February 15, 2022.
Exemptions to masks requirements
The following individuals are exempt from always wearing masks:
- Persons younger than two years old. Very young children must not wear a mask because of the risk of suffocation.
- Persons with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a mask. This includes persons with a medical condition for whom wearing a mask could obstruct breathing or who are unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove a mask without assistance.
- Persons who are hearing impaired, or communicating with a person who is hearing impaired, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication.
- Persons for whom wearing a mask would create a risk to the person related to their work, as determined by local, state, or federal regulators or workplace safety guidelines.
