Fully vaccinated people no longer required to wear a mask in Monterey County buildings

MONTEREY COUNTY — Monterey County will no longer require fully vaccinated residents to wear a face covering when inside a county building, the county announced Wednesday.

Starting Thursday, residents will be asked to verbally attest that they are fully vaccinated when entering a county building in which security or staff members are present.

Members of the public can also self-attest their vaccination status by wearing or not wearing a mask in buildings without security or staff members at entrances.

Those who decline to give their vaccination status or who are not fully vaccinated will be required to wear a mask or other face covering as previously required for anyone on county premises.

Non-vaccinated residents may also be asked to remain behind a Plexiglas barrier or experience delays in service if alternate staff members are necessary, according to the county.

County employees follow the same masking rules, according to the county, and are currently required to provide proof of their full vaccination to remove their masks in county buildings.

Covid-19 information for Monterey County can be found at https://www.co.monterey.ca.us/government/departments-a-h/health/diseases/2019-novel-coronavirus-covid-19.
