Throughout the pandemic, the masking guidelines have changed multiple times. Here are the most up-to-date masking guidelines as of March 2023:
- Effective April 03, 2023, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released updates masking guidance. Note: UCR Health is required to follow both the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Riverside County Department of Public Health requirements to ensure minimal infection risk. Until further notice, masking is required for all individuals entering UCR Health Clinics.
- Currently, masks are required for individuals regardless of vaccination status in Healthcare Settings. UCR Health’s Executive Leadership Team will continue to monitor the Riverside County Department of Public Health masking requirements. If the Riverside Department of Public Health masking requirement changes, UCR Health will adjust our protocol to align with the County and/or State and send this communication no later than April 02.
