Reopening of Businesses

What will California look like after June 15?


California is fully reopening its economy with businesses resuming normal operations, with limited exceptions for mega-events. The new Health Order, effective June 15, 2021, replaces previous health orders issued by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).

Key Points to Beyond the Blueprint:

  • The Tiers, guidance documents, and prevention plans are no longer in effect. Most businesses can resume normal operations (how they conduct business with their customers.)
  • There are no limitations on capacity or physical distancing of attendees, customers, or guests.
  • Businesses with employees must continue to follow the Cal/OSHA Covid-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS). This includes mask-wearing and other preventive measures. 
  • Mega Events are characterized by large crowds greater than 5,000 (indoors) and 10,000 (outdoors) attendees. These events must still follow limited guidance and prevention guidance.

What do California employers need to know?

Most employers are subject to the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS). The Cal/OSHA Standards Board will vote on these revisions to the Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) at their next meeting on June 17.
