The Yountville Chamber of Commerce is making it a priority to continue educating ourselves with facts and authoritative resources. We are making daily evaluations of the current and potential effects of COVID-19 within our community and local economy. We are in close and frequent communications with local government, regional government, our biggest industry partners, and our small business community. Scroll down for updates and a complete list of resources.

Updated: Tuesday, April 26, 2022

Updates as of April 20, 2022:

In alignment with the CDC’s announcement that its order requiring masking on public transportation and at transportation hubs is no longer in effect, effective immediately California’s requirement for masking on public transit and in transportation hubs is terminated. CDPH strongly recommends that individuals in these settings continue to wear a mask.

Masking Requirements

Masks are required for all individuals in the following indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. Surgical masks or higher-level respirators (e.g., N95s, KN95s, KF94s) with good fit are highly recommended.

*In certain healthcare situations or settings surgical masks (or higher filtration masks) are required. See State Health Officer Order, issued on July 26, 2021, for a full list of high-risk congregate and other specifically enumerated healthcare settings where surgical masks are required for unvaccinated workers. The Order also includes recommendations for respirator use for unvaccinated workers in healthcare and long-term care facilities in situations or settings not covered by Cal/OSHA ETS or ATD.

Additionally, masks are strongly recommended for all persons, regardless of vaccine status, in indoor public settings and businesses (examples: retail, restaurants, theaters, family entertainment centers, meetings, state and local government offices serving the public); on public transit (examples: airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subways, buses, taxis, and ride-shares); and in transportation hubs (examples: airport, bus terminal, marina, train station, seaport or other port, subway station, or any other area that provides transportation). Surgical masks or higher-level respirators (e.g., N95s, KN95s, KF94s) with good fit are highly recommended.
