State Public health leaders have just ended weekly testing requirements for workers. This move comes in an effort to better align with federal COVID-19 policy recommendations. This will now end for workers in high-risk areas such as healthcare, childcare, and other congregate facilities.
The state’s vaccination and booster requirements for employees in healthcare, correctional health, and adult residential settings remain in effect. In addition, changes to the vaccine-or-test policy regarding state workers will be announced separately by CalHR.
