Since the County of Orange declared a local health emergency on February 26, 2020, City officials have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

COVID-19 Local Metrics

COVID-19 Local Metrics June 10, 2021The Orange County Health Care Agency reports city-related data for COVID-19 cases daily. The information, along with vaccine information and other test figures, are available on their website.

Because transmission is occurring throughout Orange County, it is important for all residents to continue practicing social-distancing, as directed by the Governor and the Orange County Health Officer, regardless of case count in a particular city. Doing so will help to reduce the spread of infection, ease the burden on our hospital and healthcare system, and protect those most vulnerable in our county.

California Moves Beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy: The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has announced that the state will move “Beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy” on June 15. Beginning today, all sectors listed in the current Blueprint Activities and Business Tier chart may return to “usual operations” with limited exceptions while following these general public health recommendations:

  • No capacity limitations
  • No physical distancing for those who are fully vaccinated
  • Face mask requirements to follow CDPH’s Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings
  • Travel restrictions to follow the CDC’s recommendations and the CDPH's Travel Advisory, both of which recommend being fully vaccinated before resuming domestic travel
  • Verification of fully vaccinated status or pre-entry negative test result will be required to attend “Indoor Mega Events” (those with crowds of greater than 5,000 attendees in indoor venues). For “Outdoor Mega Events” (those with crowds of greater than 10,000 attendees in outdoor venues), verification of fully vaccinated status or pre-entry negative test result will be strongly recommended, and attendees who do not verify vaccination status should be asked to wear face coverings

Businesses may choose to:

  • Provide information to all patrons, guests and attendees regarding vaccination requirements and allow vaccinated individuals to self-attest that they are in compliance prior to entry
  • Implement vaccine verification to determine whether individuals are required to wear a mask
  • Require all patrons to wear masks

Everyone must still wear masks in the workplace, on public transit, medical facilities, K-12 schools, correctional facilities and shelters. It is important to note that this workplace guidance is being considered on June 17, 2021 by Cal/OSHA, California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health, which may lead to a modification of these requirements.
