COVID-19 Information

Amendment to Face Mask Ordinance - Updated October 21, 2021
Per the Sonoma County Health Officer Dr. Sundari Mase's amended health order, certain stable groups of people, such as those in gyms, classes and offices, have the option of lifting the mandate on wearing masks indoors if they verify that all members of the group are fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

Additional Details:
  • This amendment applies to indoor gatherings of 100 or fewer people
  • Employers, hosts, and organizers must control access to the setting by verifying vaccination status to allow groups to remove face coverings
  • Proof of a negative test is not considered a substitute for proof of vaccination
This exception to the order requiring face coverings in all indoor public settings is voluntary, so employers, hosts, and organizers may continue to enforce universal indoor masking if they choose to not enforce vaccination status.

New Face Mask Requirements - Updated August 3, 2021
The Sonoma County Health Officer has released an official Health Order stating that all individuals are required to wear face coverings when indoors in workplaces and public settings, regardless of vaccination status. This official order will become effective at 12:01 am on August 3, 2021, and will continue to be in effect until further notice. Businesses are responsible for requiring all employees, contractors, visitors, and patrons to wear face coverings for all indoor settings and to post clearly visible and easy-to-read signage at all entry points to communicate the masking requirements to all patrons.
