The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued an Order on August 19, 2021 which requires workers working in a healthcare setting at all local and state correctional facilities and detention centers be vaccinated against COVID-19.  Therefore, all workers identified under the CDPH Order are required to either be vaccinated or submit a medical or religious accommodation.  While working through either of these interactive processes, staff shall wear an N95 mask and test twice-weekly (with at least 72 hours between each test) until they comply with the August 19, 2021 CDPH Order.
 
In addition, beginning on December 27, 2021, booster-eligible workers who have not yet received their booster dose shall undergo twice-weekly COVID-19 testing (with at least 72 hours between each test), until they receive a booster. Fully-vaccinated workers who are not yet eligible for a booster are only required to test once they become eligible for a booster but remain unboosted.
