Dear KGI Community,
The CDC has released information indicating that fully vaccinated people can resume pre-pandemic activities. The guidance also stated: “Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.”
California Department of Public Health has indicated, “On June 15, California plans to implement the CDC’s guidelines around masking to allow fully vaccinated Californians to go without a mask in most indoor settings. This four-week period will give Californian’s time to prepare for this change while we continue our relentless focus on delivering vaccines, particularly in underserved communities.”
“Until June 15, when California plans to reopen the economy fully, California will keep our existing guidance around masks in place. As of May 3, 2021, face coverings are no longer required outdoors except at crowded events, and for unvaccinated people, when physical distancing cannot be maintained. In indoor settings outside of one’s home, including public transportation and schools, face coverings continue to be required regardless of vaccination status.”
On May 13, 2021, LA County indicated much of the same. “It remains important to protect workers at all worksites, and all worksites must follow the requirements set forth by California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health, Cal/OSHA. Until Cal/OSHA changes these requirements, the County cannot be less restrictive. Proposed changes to Cal/OSHA’s workplace safety standards were posted for consideration at the 5/20 standards board meeting. We expect to hear more about these changes once the standard board meets.”
At this time, anyone coming to KGI’s campus will need to continue to wear masks despite vaccination status. Should that change, we will send an email to the community.
Thank you all for your continued help in keeping our community safe and compliant.
