California Dept. of Public Health issues guidelines for private gatherings

by DCG

California health bureaucrats missed the memo from WHO regarding lockdowns.

They are still in some form of lockdowns with restrictions in place in California. And since their citizens don’t know any better, the bureaucrats have issued guidelines for how you conduct your PRIVATE gatherings.

Their guidelines apply to private gatherings, and all other gatherings not covered by existing sector guidance are prohibited. Gatherings are defined as social situations that bring together people from different households at the same time in a single space or place. From their web site:

All persons planning to host or participate in a private gathering, as defined above, must comply with the following requirementsLocal health jurisdictions may be more restrictive than this guidance.

Gatherings that include more than 3 households are prohibited.

Gatherings that occur outdoors are significantly safer than indoor gatherings. All gatherings must be held outside. Attendees may go inside to use restrooms as long as the restrooms are frequently sanitized.

For any gatherings permitted under this guidance, the space must be large enough so that everyone at a gathering can maintain at least a 6-foot physical distance from others (not including their own household) at all times.

Seating must provide at least 6 feet of distance (in all directions—front-to-back and side-to-side) between different households.

When gathering, face coverings must be worn in accordance with the CDPH Guidance on the Use of Face Coverings (PDF), unless an exemption is applicable.

People at gatherings may remove their face coverings briefly to eat or drink as long as they stay at least 6 feet away from everyone outside their own household, and put their face covering back on as soon as they are done with the activity.

Gatherings should be two hours or less.

Read all their guidelines here.

There’s a way to get around all these guidelines, though. Just call your event a “peaceful protest.”

Better yet, just wait until November 4 to hold a private gathering as restrictions may be lifted after the election.
