Phased Approach in Orange County to Easing Face Covering Mandate
Recently, the CDC issued new guidance on outdoor mask use for those who are fully vaccinated. If you are fully vaccinated and want to attend a small outdoor gathering with people who are vaccinated and unvaccinated, or dine outdoors, the science shows you can do so safely … without a mask. However, the CDC still advises you to avoid large gatherings.
At a COVID-19 news conference on April 28, 2021, Mayor Demings introduced a three-phased plan to ease social distancing and mask guidelines:
- Phase 1 – Effective Immediately. Reduce physical distance from 6 to 3 feet in all settings. Fully vaccinated individuals should follow CDC guidelines for wearing facial coverings.
- Phase 2 – Effective when 50% of the population 16 and older has received their first dose of the vaccine. Facial covering mandate for outdoors lifted for all individuals. Physical distancing of at least 3 feet between groups is encouraged. Facial coverings still required for indoors, except when eating or drinking.
- Phase 3 – Effective when 70% of the population 16 or older has received their first dose of the vaccine and/or Orange County’s 14-day rolling positivity rate is 5% or below. All mandates are lifted.
