ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 30, 2020) — Anaheim has issued a citywide face covering requirement to support California’s June 18 guidance on face coverings in public.

The Anaheim requirement, a binding order by our city manager under the city’s March 16 public health emergency declaration, makes state guidance for wearing face coverings mandatory in Anaheim.

The order is effective today, June 30. It applies to all residents and those working in or visiting Anaheim.

The order requires the use of face coverings:

  • Inside and in line for any indoor public space
  • At any healthcare setting
  • Using public transit or rideshare
  • At workplaces in common areas
  • For any food service, packaging or distribution
  • In any room or enclosed area where you’re unable to distance from those outside your own household.
  • Outside when within six feet of others

Those with special considerations would be exempt, and face coverings are not required in certain situations:

  • Children younger than 2
  • Those with health, mental or developmental considerations
  • Those who face workplace risks from wearing a face covering
  • Medical treatments where removal is necessary
