California updates COVID-19 manual for indoor mega-events

CDPH announced that it would change the COVID guidelines for mega-events as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to decline across the country.

CALIFORNIA, USA – From April 1, the requirement for vaccine confirmation or evidence of negative testing for those attending indoor mega-events will be lifted and will now be a strong recommendation.

On Friday, the California Department of Public Health announced that they would change the COVID guidelines for mega-events as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are declining across the country.

According to the CDPH, indoor mega-events are those that have more than 1,000 participants, and outdoor mega-events are those that have more than 10,000 participants.

Here are the updated restrictions that apply to indoor and outdoor mega-events:

  • Vaccine confirmation or evidence of a negative COVID test
    • Highly recommended for indoor mega-events.
    • Recommended for outdoor mega-events.
  • Capacity limitations
    • No restrictions on indoor or outdoor mega-events.
  • Physically distanced
    • No restrictions for attendees, customers and guests at indoor or outdoor mega-events.

Under the new guidance, those hosting mega-events will decide whether to require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.

“The risk of spreading COVID-19 is reduced once all parties have been vaccinated,” the CPDH said in a statement.

The state says vaccination and negative COVID-19 test results are still an important strategy to reduce COVID-19 transmission.
