The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified today to align with Gov. Gavin Newsom’s directives and require the closure of:
- Indoor, in-person dining at restaurants
- Indoor museums, indoor children’s museums, and indoor operations at zoos and aquariums
- Cardrooms and satellite wagering facilities
Also, the Health Officer Order requires businesses with three or more known cases of COVID-19 within the workplace over the span of 14 days, to report the outbreak to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health). Employers who have one known case within the workplace must have a protocol that requires that person to self-isolate at home and anyone exposed to self-quarantine.
Bars remain closed and all events and gatherings unless specifically allowed by this Order remain prohibited. Additionally, face coverings and gloves must be worn at fitness facilities at all times.
