SCDH COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS for IN-PERSON, INDOOR EVENTS
UPDATED: In light of current Covid conditions: 8/2/22

There is a strong possibility that we will require masks for IN-PERSON, INDOOR events.
Masks are not required for OUTDOOR events. We will have extra masks and hand sanitizer available at indoor events.


Vaccinations and boosters are highly recommended as the current Omicron strains are very contagious.
Masking is the only thing that offers at least some protection for the vaccinated and unvaccinated.


If you have Covid or any Covid symptoms (sore throat, fever, cough, nasal congestion), please think of others and do not come to an in-person event.

If you have questions regarding SCDH Covid policy, please contact Tricia Paulsen at 310-375-3895 (Leave a voicemail, and you will receive a callback).
