Highlights from the last week in the jurisdictions are included below:

Alaska: Fully reopened. Gov. Mike Dunleavy issued a memo requiring employees, contractors and visitors to wear a mask in indoor state facilities, unless social distancing can be maintained.

California: Newsom announced that effective Sept. 20, vaccination verification or a negative COVID-19 test is required for indoor events over 1,000. The same is strongly recommended, but not required, for outdoor events over 10,000. Previously, Newsom announced employees and health care workers must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or submit to regular testing (once a week). The order also applies to employees who work in high-risk congregate settings, such as jails and senior residential facilities. In some workplaces, the state requires that workers verify that they are fully vaccinated, or be regularly tested for COVID-19.

Delaware: Fully Reopened. Staff in long-term care, other health care facilities, and state employees will be required to provide proof of vaccination or undergo regular testing starting Sept. 30 to prevent transmission of COVID-19.

Georgia: Fully reopened. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms (D) ordered individuals age 10 and up to wear a mask in indoor public spaces. Savannah Mayor Van R. Johnson II (D) also signed an order requiring individuals over age 10 to wear a mask when inside Savannah government buildings, hospitals and early childhood centers, among other places.

Hawaii: Gov. David Ige (D) signed an order reinstating gathering and capacity restrictions. Indoor social gatherings of over 10 people are prohibited and outdoor social gatherings of over 25 people are prohibited. Restaurants, gyms and other establishments with high-risk indoor activities must limit capacity to 50 percent. Professional events of more than 50 people can gather, but the organizer must consult with the appropriate country agency. The order lasts until Oct. 18. Previously, Ige dropped the quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated U.S. travelers. Visitors arriving in Hawaii from out of state who have been fully vaccinated for two weeks can bypass the requirements. Otherwise, visitors must either show a negative COVID-19 test result obtained within 72 hours of traveling or self-quarantine for 10 days. A statewide mandate requires individuals age 5 and older to wear a face mask in indoor public settings. Masks are not required outdoors.

Illinois: Fully reopened. Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) announced he will issue a mask mandate. Effective, Aug. 30, individuals 2 and up must wear a mask in indoor public places, such as restaurants, gyms and grocery stores. The mandate applies regardless of vaccination status.

New York: Fully reopened. On Aug. 4, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that individuals won’t be allowed to enter indoor restaurants, gyms or entertainment facilities without proof that they have gotten at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
