Masks Required When Indoors at All City Buildings in Cathedral City

The Director of Emergency Services for the City of Cathedral City has issued Emergency Order 4 that mandates masks are required while indoors at all city buildings.

The order states the following:

“That all persons, whether or not vaccinated for COVID-19, shall wear a mask while in public indoor settings owned or controlled by the City of Cathedral City unless specifically exempted under the current order of the California Public Health Officer.”

This order would include City Hall, the Police Department, Fire Stations, and the Cathedral City Public Library.  The order is in response to rising number of coronavirus cases in the City and the ability for those vaccinated and unvaccinated to spread coronavirus, especially the new Delta variant.

According to the CDC and leading health experts, your best defense to avoid getting severely ill from COVID-19 and the Delta variant is to get the FDA approved vaccines authorized for emergency use.  To schedule a vaccination appointment, contact your medical provider or local pharmacy.  To schedule an appointment through the Riverside County Department of Health, go to or to learn about the safety of the vaccines, go to or your medical provider.  There are no more long lines, wait times, or the need to drive any far distance.

By getting vaccinated, you can significantly reduce your chances of being hospitalized.  By getting vaccinated, you can keep your family and community safe.  By getting vaccinated, you can help keep our businesses open and the economy growing in California.  By wearing a mask indoors, you help slow the COVID-19 spread.
