Dealership Operations and Health Requirements

The following is an outline of the status of in-person and online vehicle sales in California as of December 15, 2021:

Statewide Indoor Mask Mandate Effective December 15.

Monday, December 13, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued an order requiring face masks to be worn indoors in all public settings regardless of vaccination status. The order is effective Wednesday, December 15 through January 15, 2022. This order will apply to both customers and employees at dealerships throughout California.

Importantly, the order exempts certain people from wearing masks, including persons younger than two years old and persons with medical conditions that prevents wearing a mask. You can access the order by clicking here.

Updated Travel Advisory.

CDPH also updated its travel advisory. Notably, the updated advisory now states that persons traveling from out-of-state should get tested 3-5 days after returning. You can access the updated advisory by clicking here.

Dealers must still abide by Cal/OSHA Emergency Temporary Standards, which can be accessed here.

Cal/OSHA has also issued an FAQ on its rules, which you can access by clicking here.
