4/14/22: It’s been two years since LA County declared a state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Take a look at how the County and 50,000+ disaster service workers mobilized to confront the pandemic and meet the unprecedented needs of the public: covid19.lacounty.gov/essential-jobs-in-60-seconds.

4/1//22: The CDPH has released updated guidelines for Mega Events as COVID cases and hospitalizations continue to recede. Effective Friday April 1, the requirement for vaccine verification or proof of a negative test for attendees of Indoor Mega Events will be lifted. Under the updated guidance, the CDPH is still strongly recommending proof of vaccine or a negative test for indoor events, and recommending it for outdoor events. There will be no capacity limitations for indoor or outdoor events. There will also be no physical distancing requirements for attendees, customers, or guests at indoor or outdoor events.

3/16/22: The Health Officer Order for the Control of COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Isolation Order and the Health Officer Order for the Control of COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Quarantine Order have been revised as of March 16, 2022 and supersede the February 1, 2022 orders. 

3/6/22: The COVID-19 Ongoing Requirements for Employers has been updated. Changes are highlighted in yellow on the document:

  • Updated to align with the revised County Health Officer Order. The revised Order no longer requires masking indoors at most workplaces but continues to strongly recommend it. Employers with optional indoor masking must provide, for voluntary use, medical masks and respirators (such as an N95, KN95 or KF94) to employees who work indoors in close contact with others. Employers that choose to maintain universal indoor masking must provide medical masks to all employees.

3/4/22: Revised LA County Health Order

3/3/22: In anticipation of LA County moving into medium or low risk according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Community Level designation this Thursday, Public Health will issue a modified Health Officer Order which will go into effect on Friday, March 4.

Under this modified order, indoor masking will be strongly recommended, but not required, for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, except in high-risk settings where federal and state regulations continue to require masking, including everyone using public transit and all those in emergency shelters, health care settings, correctional and detention facilities, homeless shelters, and long-term care facilities. At all sites where masking indoors is no longer mandatory, employers will be required to offer, for voluntary use, medical grade masks and respirators to employees working indoors in close contact with other workers and/or customers.

Masks are required indoors at schools and childcare facilities until March 11 when masks will be strongly recommended for students, children, teachers, and staff regardless of vaccination status. School districts in LA County may continue to require masking at schools and during school activities, along with other appropriate safety protections for their school community.

Masking is strongly recommended for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, in indoor public spaces by both the state and county public health departments because transmission remains a significant risk for many across our county and state.

Masking is also still required for those who exit isolation or quarantine early through day 10 of their isolation or quarantine period. As a reminder, regardless of the community risk level, people can wear a mask based on their personal preference, comfort level, and informed by their personal level of risk. At every risk level, those who are exposed or symptomatic should be tested and a negative test is required to exit isolation or quarantine between days 6-10.

Two additional community prevention strategies include vaccine verification and ventilation. Vaccine verification in health care and congregate care settings continues to be required across all community risk levels. Vaccine verification also continues to be required for entry to indoor mega events, with a negative test result as a substitute for those not fully vaccinated. Vaccine verification at outdoor mega events and indoor portions of bars, nightclubs and lounges is strongly recommended and no longer required.

Additionally, under Medium and High-risk Levels, visitors at healthcare facilities, including congregate care sites, are still required to verify vaccination status or provide a negative test result. Regardless of community risk level, proper ventilation throughout indoor spaces should be maintained. For more information, visit the Los Angeles County Post Surge Response Plan.

2/25/22: LA County Health Officer Order Modified to Allow Establishments, Businesses, and Venues Verifying Vaccination Status to Make Masking Indoors Optional for Fully Vaccinated Individuals Beginning Friday, February 25

As the county continues to experience reduced COVID-19 spread, it is appropriate to consider fewer required safety measures, noting that vulnerable individuals should continue to layer in all protections possible. Given lower hospital admissions and the effectiveness of the vaccines in reducing severe illness, changes have been made in the Health Officer Order that allow establishments, businesses, or venues two options for removing masking requirements for fully vaccinated individuals.

The modified Health Officer Order was posted on Wednesday, February 23 and will go into effect at 12:01am on Friday, February 25, 2022. Changes to the order are highlighted in yellow.

Option 1: Starting this Friday, establishments, businesses, or venues that want to allow fully vaccinated customers and workers to unmask while indoors must:

  • Verify that 100% of customers (5 and older) and workers prior to, or upon, entry to indoor spaces:
  • Provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, or 
  • Provide proof of a recent negative COVID-19 viral test result. Tests for customers must be taken within two days of entry if a PCR test, or one day if an antigen test. Employees will be allowed to submit a negative test result every three days. 

Those who are not fully vaccinated or do not show proof of vaccination, are required to provide a negative test, and continue wearing a well-fitting mask while indoors (as required by the state), except when actively eating or drinking.

Option 2: Starting this Friday, establishments, businesses, or venues that want to allow their fully vaccinated customers to unmask indoors while all onsite workers remain masked, must: 

  • Verify that 100% of customers (5 and older) prior to, or upon, entry to indoor spaces
  • Provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, or
  • Provide proof of a recent negative COVID-19 viral test result. Tests for customers must have been taken within two days of entry if a PCR test or one day if an antigen test.
  • Adhere to the following regarding customers and masking:
  • Fully vaccinated customers may be unmasked in the indoor setting.
  • Customers that are not fully vaccinated must continue to wear a well-fitting mask while indoors (as required by the state), except when actively eating or drinking.

Any individual showing proof of full vaccination prior to entering can still choose to wear a mask indoors.

2/16/22:  Public Health issued a modified LA County Health Officer Order effective as of 12:01am on Wednesday, February 16 recommending, but no longer requiring, masking at outdoor mega events and outdoor spaces at K-12 schools and childcare centers.

Per state regulations, indoor masking at K-12 schools, childcare facilities, youth settings, healthcare settings, correctional facilities, homeless and emergency shelters, and cooling centers is still currently required. The state will provide an updated assessment on February 28 on appropriate safety considerations for schools. Additionally, per federal regulations, masking when riding public transit and in transportation hubs is still required.

Employers must also continue to provide high quality and well-fitting masks to workers who are in close contact with others until transmission is lower. Vaccination verification will also continue at mega events and indoor sections of bars, lounges, nightclubs, wineries, breweries, and distilleries.

LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said yesterday "we anticipate, that with continued steep declines in case numbers indicating much lower transmission, we will be able to safely lift indoor mask mandates in mid-March."

While masking will no longer be required at outdoor Mega Events or in outdoor spaces at childcare facilities and K-12 schools, the masking requirement at indoor establishments will continue until:

  • LA County has seven consecutive days at or below Moderate Transmission (10-49.99 new cases/100,000 persons in the past seven days), AND
  • There are no emerging reports of significantly circulating new variants of concern that threaten vaccine effectiveness.

2/7/22: Once LA County enters post surge (when COVID daily hospitalizations drop below 2,500 for 7 consecutive days), masking will no longer be required in outdoor spaces at outdoor Mega Events or in outdoor spaces at childcare facilities and K-12 schools. The masking requirement at indoor establishments will continue until:

  • LA County has two consecutive weeks at or below Moderate Transmission (10-49.99 new cases/100,000 persons in the past seven days), as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention OR
  • Vaccines have been available for children under age five for eight weeks; AND
  • No emerging reports of significantly circulating new variants of concern that threaten vaccine effectiveness.

Per state regulations, indoor masking at K-12 schools, childcare facilities, youth settings, healthcare settings, correctional facilities, homeless and emergency shelters, and cooling centers is still required.

Additionally, per federal regulations, masking when riding public transit and in transportation is still required.

Employers must also continue to provide high quality and well-fitting masks to workers who are in close contact with others until transmission is lower. 

Vaccination verification will also continue at mega events and indoor sections of bars, lounges, nightclubs, wineries, breweries, and distilleries.

Post surge does not mean the pandemic is over or that transmission is low or that there will not be additional unpredictable waves of surges in the future that will require integrated public health measures. Rather, post surge acknowledges that we're stabilizing with consistent declines from the surge peak and it realigns our current public health response to meet current mitigation needs. 

And with the current levels of transmission, the safest action for all of us is to protect ourselves and our essential workers by layering in protections, which include testing, vaccinations, infection control, and masking. Being cautious still makes sense and doing everything we can to drive down the high rate of transmission is an appropriate goal for us to continue to embrace as a community as the steps we're taking are helping us move in the right direction.

7/16/21:  L.A. County Community Transmission of COVID-19 Increases from Moderate to Substantial; Reinstating Masking Indoors for Everyone

Community transmission of COVID-19 has rapidly increased from Moderate to Substantial, based on the trend in daily new cases of COVID-19. The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order has been modified to require masking for everyone while indoors, regardless of vaccination status, as Los Angeles County sees more than a seven-times increase in new cases since the June 15 reopening. Wearing a mask when indoors reduces the risk of both getting and transmitting the virus. This additional layer of protection can help to slow the spread and does not limit business occupancy and operations.

The L.A. County indoor masking requirements for everyone will be effective, Saturday, July 17 at 11:59 p.m. Some exceptions will apply, similar to masking requirements that were in place prior to the June 15 reopening. The modified Health Officer Order has been posted online and will become effective at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, July 17.

Highlights of the Order include the following:

  • Requirements to wear face masks by all persons regardless of vaccination status for indoor public settings and businesses
  • Urges everyone to continue to exercise caution and good judgement to protect against community transmission

Face Masks:

  • Aligned with CDC requirements

Required for everyone in the following settings:

  • On public transit
  • In transportation hubs
  • Indoors in K-12 schools, childcare and other youth settings
  • Healthcare settings
  • State and local correctional facilities and detention centers
  • Homeless shelters, emergency shelters, and cooling centers
  • All indoor public settings, venues, gatherings, and businesses
  • Individuals, businesses, venue operators, and hosts of public indoor settings must post clear, easy to read signage communicating masking requirements for all patrons

On June 15, the day of the full reopening, the County saw 210 new cases and yesterday the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health confirmed the highest number of new COVID-19 cases since mid-March with 1,902 new cases. The current test positivity rate is 3.8%; on June 15, the test positivity rate was around 0.5%

According to Muntu Davis, MD, MPH, Los Angeles County Health Officer, “We expect to keep masking requirements in place until we begin to see improvements in our community transmission of COVID-19."
