The Pasadena Department of Public Health Department mask wearing requirements* and recommendations for public indoor settings are summarized below.

Please note that in workplace settings, employers must follow the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Prevention – Non-Emergency Regulations. In addition, per the Pasadena Health Officer Order, workers in healthcare facilities and direct care settings who have not received the annual influenza and updated COVID-19 vaccines for the 2023-24 respiratory virus season must wear a well-fitting face covering while in patient care areas. Additionally, health care personnel must follow state or federal requirement for masking.

YOU* MUST wear a well-fitting mask:
  • In healthcare settings, including medical offices, long-term care settings and adult/senior care facilities, if you are providing patient care or working in patient care areas and have not received the annual influenza and updated COVID-19 vaccines for the 2023-24 respiratory virus season. Refer to the Pasadena Health Officer Order Requiring Wearing of Face Masks in Health Care Settings for more details.
    NOTE: Patients, clients and visitors must wear a well-fitting mask only if the health care facility is in outbreak status or there is evidence of high community transmission levels, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), within Los Angeles County.
  • If it is required by the site, including some business, schools, and workplaces.
  • If it is required by Public Health for managing an outbreak, including in workplaces and congregate settings.
  • If you have COVID-19 and must be around others until you end isolation. This includes when you are at home. If you are eligible to end isolation, continue to wear a mask around others from Day 6 through Day 10. The exception is that if you have two sequential negative COVID-19 tests taken at least a day apart, you do not need to wear a mask. Follow the Pasadena Public Health Department Updated Guidelines for COVID-19 Cases (Isolation) and Close Contacts .
    NOTE: In workplace settings, workers who test positive for COVID-19 must wear a well-fitting mask after they return to work through Day 10.
