SACRAMENTO – Today, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released the most recent statistics on COVID-19 and updates on the state’s pandemic response.

Masking Update

CDPH issued the following statement in response to today’s announcement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to update masking guidance for fully vaccinated Americans.

We continue to urge all eligible Californians to get vaccinated to help us move past this pandemic.”
