Preparing for June 15 – Getting Tested, Getting Vaxxed, Getting Ready

Many businesses and public spaces in Culver City are already opening, but pandemic measures are still in place, and people should remain mindful of the possibility of viral transmission. In addition to getting vaccinated, Public Health is keeping several other prevention measures top of mind approaching the June 15 reopening.

Testing – as more people intermingle with others outside of their households, testing will be an essential part of the County strategy after June 15 to prevent outbreaks. Public Health recommends testing for anyone with signs or symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status or recent infection. Testing is also recommended for unvaccinated people who have been in close contact with someone who has a confirmed COVID-19 infection or who has had a potential exposure. Testing is still widely available across the county.

California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) Proposed Modifications – on May 28, Cal/OSHA released proposed new COVID-19 prevention standards for workplaces, which continue to include a requirement for face coverings at all indoor worksites until further notice unless all of the people in the room have been fully vaccinated. The Cal/OSHA standards board will meet tomorrow, June 3, 2021, to determine the new COVID-19 prevention section requirements. It will be important for all businesses to comply with all of the Cal/OSHA masking and distancing requirements at worksites past June 15.

Public Health Best Practices – After most sectors reopen fully on June 15, there will continue to be sector-specific protocols for schools, day cares, camps, hospitals, health care facilities, and high-risk congregate settings; these protocols will continue masking, distancing and infection control safety measures as appropriate. And while businesses may not be required to maintain distancing, masking, and infection control after June 15, Public Health recognizes that many businesses may want to continue some public health measures for the safety of their workers and customers.
