Mega Events
Some public health measures will remain for mega events, which include 5,000+ people indoors or 10,000+ outdoors. Think concerts, sporting events, festivals, and conventions. Mega events are high risk for spreading covid-19 because they attract people from around the world, and people gather in crowds. Indoor mega event attendees will be required to confirm proof of vaccination or negative covid-19 status to attend. Outdoor mega event attendees will be strongly encouraged to do so.

Solano County continues to defer to the guidance and health orders issued by the state of California. Click here for more information on mega events.

Transition from the Blueprint
The California Department of Public Health's (CDPH) strategy is to use various levers and incentives to increase protection of Californians and incentivize vaccination to move us towards community immunity. Since March CDPH has adjusted the Blueprint to recognize the role of vaccines in reducing the transmission. These strategies include:

  • Get vaccinated
  • Reopening and expanding the capacity of outdoor sectors
  • Adding the Vaccine Equity Benchmarks to adjust the case rate thresholds for Blueprint tiers
  • Allowing increased capacity or numbers of persons allowed, including indoors, with proof of testing or vaccination
  • Developing guidance or minimum standards to ensure equity, privacy, and ethical practices are integral in the deployment of vaccination and testing verification methods
  • Focusing on equity allocations and implementations plans to improve vaccination coverage in our least advantaged and hardest-hit communities

The efforts Californians have taken to date have allowed us to fully reopen safely so we can move beyond the Blueprint.
