Effective at 12 a.m. on Friday, April 24, 2020, all employees of any grocery store, pharmacy/drug store, convenience store, gas station, restaurant, food preparation establishment, or retail store in Orange County who may have contact with the public must wear a cloth face covering while at work to help slow the spread of COVID-19 by those who are asymptomatic. This directive from the Orange County Board of Supervisors applies countywide and is in line with face coverings guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health on April 1, 2020.
Though the regulation issued by the Board does not require customers to wear masks, customers are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings while engaged in essential activities outside the home. Residents can make their own face coverings at home from a variety of materials and should refrain from purchasing personal protective equipment that is critical and in short supply for healthcare workers, such as N95 and surgical masks.
