Universal masking indoors statewide.Drew Hendricks
To all Client Community Associations:
Please be advised that yesterday, December 13, 2021, the State of California’s Governor Newsome through the Health and Human Services Agency, California Department of Public Health mandated “universal masking indoors statewide.”
This “guidance” is effective December 15, 2021 and supersedes all prior face covering guidance. Masks are required for “all individuals in all indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status from December 15, 2021 through January 15, 2022.”
If you have enclosed common areas at your HOA or building owners’ association, you must require that those staying, passing through or otherwise participating in business or other activities therein, wear a mask. This includes lobbies, indoor gymnasiums, saunas, clubhouses, restaurants, bars, hallways, business offices – any indoor location.
This does not apply to: “Persons younger than two years old. Persons with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a mask. 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.”
We look forward to seeing your beautiful smiles again on January 15th!
