Although the State of California has aligned itself with CDC recommendations surrounding face mask requirements, Los Angeles County is the first county since California’s Re-Opening to issue an updated face mask mandate due to the recent increase in the transmission of Covid-19.
Effective Saturday, July 17th at 11:59 p.m., Los Angeles County will again require residents to wear a compliant face mask while indoors in a public space—regardless of your vaccination status. This new order will be similar to the masking requirements that were in place before June 15, with some limited exceptions.
While Los Angeles County is the first county in California to issue a new mask mandate, it is important for businesses to understand and stay on top of these new constraints to ensure compliance with county and state requirements, and ensure the safety of your clients, customers, and your employees. Make sure your written Covid-19 Prevention Plans are up to date and Cal-OSHA compliant.
