Price Gouging Enforcement Update

Los Angeles County has approved an urgency ordinance to strengthen protections for County consumers and small businesses, and to eliminate price gouging during the COVID-19 pandemic and other emergencies. Effective immediately, the ordinance authorizes the filing of civil actions against price gougers and imposes a civil penalty of up to $10,000 per violation.

As a reminder, the recent regression of some of these COVID-19 indicators make it appropriate, at this time, to reimpose certain restrictions that are intended to limit person-to-person contact and slow the current rates of community transmission. While we are making good progress, it’s important to remember that the COVID-19 pandemic is still active. Residents, business owners and employees must observe physical distancing requirements and prevention techniques outlined above under the Safer at Home order. Please remember that violation of or failure to comply with the County’s Order is a crime and punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both.
