After enduring strict lockdown measures since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, California has officially ended capacity limits, social distancing requirements, and mask mandates for fully vaccinated individuals. This move comes as a result of the successful vaccination campaign across the state.

California Governor Gavin Newsom expressed his optimism, stating, “California is turning the page on this pandemic, thanks to swift action by the state and the commitment of Californians to follow public health guidelines and get vaccinated.” The state has administered nearly 40 million vaccines, resulting in one of the lowest infection and death rates in the country.

While most restrictions have been lifted, masks are still mandatory in specific settings such as public transportation, hospitals, jails, schools, and daycares. This aligns with the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Newsom emphasized that the battle against COVID-19 is not yet over and urged continued caution. He highlighted the importance of honesty regarding vaccination status and encouraged unvaccinated individuals to keep wearing masks. “Trust is fundamental, and it’s crucial to maintain the current system of verification based on vaccination status,” Newsom added.

Even with the reopening, Newsom reminded Californians that the threat of COVID-19 remains. He cautioned against complacency and underscored the global impact of the virus. “More people have lost their lives to Covid in 2021 than in all of 2020 globally,” Newsom stated.
