On March 10, 2021, the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health (DPH) revised the “Reopening Safer at Work and in the Community for Control of COVID-19” Health Officer Order to include the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) interim public health guidance for fully vaccinated people and visits or small private gatherings.
*Fully vaccinated people can:
- Visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing.
- Visit with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing.
*Fully vaccinated people should continue to:
- Mask and physically distance in public.
- Mask, physically distance, and practice other prevention measure when visiting.
- Unvaccinated people at increased risk for severe COVID-19 disease** or who have an unvaccinated household member at increased risk for severe COVID-19 disease.
- Unvaccinated people from multiple households.
- Avoid medium and large sized in-person gatherings.
*People are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 two weeks or more after they have received the second dose in a 2-dose series (e.g., Pfizer or Moderna), or two weeks or more after they have received a single dose vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson).
**Individuals at risk of severe COVID-19 illness are older adults, pregnant persons, people with underlying medical conditions, and other people who need extra precautions.
Note: A) If any of the unvaccinated people or their household members are at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19**, all attendees must gather outdoors only, wear a well-fitted mask, and stay at least 6 feet away from people who do not live with them. B) Fully vaccinated people should not visit or attend a gathering if they have tested positive for COVID-19 in the prior 10 days or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, regardless of the vaccination status of the other people at the gathering.
Private gatherings are still limited to a maximum of 3 households and no more than 15 persons for less than two hours in duration.
