Welcome back! As the state of California has moved Beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy and fully reopened June 15, we are pleased to welcome the public back to City Hall and our City facilities. The City of Irvine has resumed many operations to their pre-COVID-19 format to serve our residents, while still offering virtual services through the City's digital City Hall, for those not ready to visit us in person. Please view the information below to learn how you can conduct business with us and how we can serve you throughout the transition to a fully-open economy.
On July 28, the California Department of Public Health updated the mask guidance in response to new CDC guidance which recommends mask use in public indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. In addition, effective August 3, face coverings are required for all visitors inside City facilities, regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be available at the front desk lobby should any visitor need one.
