Beginning on June 15th, vaccinated Californians were able to go mask-free in most settings, except in the workplace. Cal OSHA is anticipated to update their regulations on June 17th to be closer in alignment with California Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control. Governor Newsom has stated that if Cal OSHA adopts the proposed revised regulations, he will immediately enact them. The revised regulations currently require unvaccinated workers to mask indoors when outside individual offices and for employers to ensure they mask.
Revisions to the utility payment assistance grant application (CDBG CV2 and 3) were submitted to the State Department of Housing and Community Development. The City did not receive any responses to its RFP for a CDBG 2 and 3 Grant Administrator. Staff are currently evaluating options.
