California is moving Beyond the Blueprint to safely and fully reopen the economy. As of June 15, 2021, Governor Newsom terminated the executive orders that put into place the Stay Home Order and the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. He also phased out the vast majority of executive actions put in place since March 2020 as part of the pandemic response, leaving a subset of provisions that facilitate the ongoing recovery.
The new Public Health Order effective June 15 supersedes all prior health orders. The order has limited restrictions, only related to masking and mega-events, as well as settings serving children and youth pending an expected update to the K-12 schools guidance by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Everyday life will feel a lot like before COVID-19. But reopening safely means continuing vaccinations and protecting the health and well-being of Californians.
Dos and Don’ts for Daily Life:
Restaurants, shopping malls, movie theaters, and most everyday places will be open as normal with no capacity limits or social distancing required. Protect yourself and others by keeping these common-sense rules in mind.
✔️ Wear a mask if you’re unvaccinated, especially in crowded, indoor environments
❌ Expect others to be ready to shake hands or hug
✔️ Follow safety rules for mega-events
❌ Lose your proof of vaccination
✔️ Get tested if you’re sick
❌ Think you can’t get the virus or pass it on because you feel well
✔️ Wear a mask while on public transit, even if you’re vaccinated
❌ Assume everyone is vaccinated
✔️ Honor mask and distancing rules in place at a private business
❌ Expect all COVID-19 rules everywhere to be lifted

❌ Travel if you’re sick
California’s Department of Public Health has updated statewide masking guidance to match the CDC’s guidance, lifting California’s mask requirements for vaccinated individuals starting on June 15. Vaccinated people are able to come together without masks in most circumstances.
People who are unvaccinated must continue to wear a mask indoors in public settings to protect themselves and others. Also, there are some settings where masking is still required for everyone, such as:
Long-term care facilities
Indoors in K-12 schools, childcare, and other youth settings
