CDPH Issues COVID-19 Guidance for Waterparks, Community Sporting Events

This week, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued COVID-19 guidance for waterparks and community sporting events. Below, we highlight the state’s most recent COVID-19 guidance:

  • Waterparks Guidance – On Wednesday, CDPH released COVID-19 guidance for waterparks. The guidance aims to support a safe, clean environment for workers and customers and limits attendance at waterparks based on county risk levels. Use of face coverings is mandatory throughout parks in all settings indoor and outdoor, unless actively eating or drinking or while on a ride or in a setting that would case the face covering to become wet. The guidance is available here.
  • Community Sporting Events Guidance – Today, CDPH issued guidance to support a safe environment for community sporting events, which applies to all organized community endurance and running/walking events including runs, walks, marathons, and triathlons, and endurance events. The guidance does not apply to outdoor and indoor youth and recreational sports or collegiate or professional sports. Community sporting events are able to resume in California beginning May 1, 2021, following these guidelines. The guidance is available here.
