Archdiocese of Los Angeles Mask Protocol - May 14, 2021

May 14, 2021

This week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released guidance indicating that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely resume activities that were done prior to the pandemic. The State of California and the Counties of Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara will review the recommendations in order to make sensible adjustments. 

In the interim, please note that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask when indoors around other fully vaccinated people, or outside in uncrowded areas.

When at businesses and in crowded venues, both indoors and outdoors, masks are still required to be worn by everyone, including at our parishes and schools, and in gatherings for Sunday Mass.

As soon as we receive updated information, we will revise our guidelines accordingly.
