Monterey County Residents Required to Follow State Guidance on Gatherings butterfly

Published: Apr 26, 2021

On June 12, 2020, the Monterey County Health Department issued Social Circles Guidance.  That guidance allowed social gatherings involving up to 12 people to take place during the COVID-19 pandemic, if certain conditions were met.  Since then, the California Department of Public Health has issued guidance for gatherings and other private and public events that bring individuals from different households together.

Today, the Monterey County Health Department updated the Social Circles Guidance to require all members of the public residing in, working in or visiting the County of Monterey to follow guidance issued by CDPH regarding gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic.
