Guidance for Informal Social Gatherings
The LADPH announced that as of May 11, 2021, fully vaccinated people can attend a small, outdoor gathering with fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people without wearing a mask. They can also have an indoor, informal social gatherings where everyone is fully vaccinated, except for guests of one household that does have any not fully vaccinated people (including children) living in it that are at high risk for severe illness or death from COVID-19, without wearing a mask or staying six feet (distancing).

However, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), fully vaccinated people should still protect themselves and others in many situations by wearing a mask that fits snugly against the sides of your face and doesn’t have gaps. Take this precaution whenever they are:

• In indoor public spaces

• Gathering indoors with unvaccinated people (including children) from more than one other household

• Visiting indoors with an unvaccinated person who is at increased risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 or who lives with a person at increased risk

• Attending a crowded, outdoor event, like a live performance, parade, or sports event.
