Face Coverings

Face Coverings

As the highly infectious Delta variant continues to spread, wearing masks regardless of vaccination status indoors and in crowded settings, including at outdoor mega events, reduces the risk of being infected with and transmitting COVID-19.  Emerging data affirms that fully vaccinated people are well protected from severe infections with Delta variants. Although fully vaccinated people are less likely to become infected than unvaccinated people are, they can become infected and transmit infection to others. 

The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order has been modified to require universal masking at outdoor mega events regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status. Masks are required to be worn by everyone at all times except when actively eating or drinking at these events. Outdoor mega events are outdoor events with crowds greater than 10,000 attendees and include music or food festivals, car shows, large endurance events, marathons, parades, sporting events and concerts.

View additional information about face coverings on the Los Angeles Department of Public Health's website.  

How to Manage Patrons and Visitors Who Refuse to Wear Face Coverings

As businesses open, and more individuals venture back into public places, it is very important that everyone continue to comply with physical distancing requirements and infection control practices such as the use of face coverings.

Unfortunately, some businesses or venues may be placed in the difficult position of managing customers or visitors who knowingly or unknowingly do not adhere to the rules. Los Angeles County has prepared a guidance document to provide businesses with tools for preparing for potential incidents with non-compliant individuals.

Protect Yourself and Others

The COVID-19 virus continues to spread, especially to those who are not fully vaccinated. The more contagious Delta variant is now widespread in LA County.

Understand How the COVID-19 Virus Spreads

Understanding how the COVID-19 virus is spread is important. It will help you to assess your risk and take steps to protect yourself in different situations.

The virus spreads from person to person mainly through respiratory droplets that are released into the air by a person who has COVID-19. For example, when they speak, sing, cough, shout, sneeze, or breathe heavily. These droplets are then breathed in by other people or land on their eyes, nose, or mouth. A person’s risk of getting infected goes up the closer they are to someone with COVID-19. Enclosed places with poor air flow can also increase the risk of getting infected. This is because the droplets that have the virus can concentrate and spread in the air past 6 feet. They can even stay floating in the air after an infected person has left the room.

This is why masks are important. They lower the number of respiratory droplets people release into the air AND also the number that they breathe in.

It is also possible, but less common, for the virus to spread by touching a surface with droplets on it and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.  

Reduce Your Risk of COVID-19

  • Avoid the three C's
    • Avoid Closed Spaces with poor air flow. 
    • Avoid Crowded Places with many people nearby.
    • Avoid Close Contact situations where people are talking (or breathing heavily) close together.
  • Get vaccinated. It is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19. It will slow the spread of COVID-19 including variants of the virus. And, it will also help lower the chances of new and more dangerous variants emerging. 
  • Wear a mask. Make sure it fits snugly and covers your nose and mouth. For better protection, wear a mask with two or more layers.
  • Keep your distance. Use two arm lengths as your guide (about 6 feet) for social distancing with people outside your household when you are not sure that they are fully vaccinated. 
  • Keep the number of different households you socialize with small. Socialize with the same set of friends and relatives rather than mixing with many different people who are not vaccinated. 
  • Be flexible. Be willing to change your plans or leave if you find yourself in a place where COVID-19 can spread more easily. For example, indoors in a loud crowded restaurant with a lot of people who are not wearing masks.  
  • Wash (or sanitize) your hands often.
  • Stay home when sick. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, talk to a doctor and get a test. You should stay home and away from others until you get the result of your COVID-19 test or until your provider tells you that you don’t have COVID-19.
  • Delay travel until you are fully vaccinated. If you do travel and are not fully vaccinated, follow the CDC domestic and international travel guidance including staying home and quarantining upon return.
