A Health Officer Order has been issued for the 2020-2021 influenza season that requires licensed health care facilities in Monterey County to develop and implement a mandatory influenza vaccination policy and program.

The program must require a health care worker to provide evidence of vaccination with an influenza vaccine.  If the health care worker is unable to provide such evidence, that worker must wear a surgical mask while working in patient care areas during the influenza season, currently defined as November 1, 2020, through April 30, 2021.
