COVID-19 Local County Directive Tracker
As of June 15, 2021, California is moving beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy’s colored tier system, and most business sectors may return to usual operations while adhering to the State’s guidance on masks. Employers will remain subject to the Cal/OSHA COVID – 19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS), if applicable to them.
Furthermore, counties and cities remain the right to impose additional restrictions outside of mandates set by the State past the June 15 reopening date. AGC of California staff has developed a county-by-county tracker to monitor changes in local health orders and additional mandates on masks, vaccines, and paid sick leave set by local jurisdictions. AGC of California is committed to ensuring our members have access to the tools and resources needed to operate safely during this crisis.
