On Friday, September 17, 2021, Ventura County extended its indoor mandatory mask mandate through October 19, 2021, for both the vaccinated and unvaccinated. County officials are concerned about the increased transmission of COVID-19, specifically among the unvaccinated. The mandate requires all persons to wear a face covering indoors, including the workplace. Masks must also be worn inside all government buildings, restaurants and bars, retail outlets, venues, and gatherings.
The extension requires that all business owners and employers continue to require its employees, customers, clients, delivery persons, and vendors wear mask inside the building through Tuesday, October 19, 2021, regardless of vaccination status.
