Monterey County Health Officer Issues a Face Covering Order

The wearing of face coverings is not a substitute for sheltering in place and social distancing

To help stop the spread of COVID-19, the Monterey County Health Officer is requiring residents to wear a face covering when going out into the public to perform essential activities, effective 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, April 30, 2020 until further notice. Combined with sheltering in place, social distancing, and frequent hand hygiene, facial coverings are shown to help slow transmission of COVID-19.
