Revised County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Order

“Responding Together at Work and in the Community”

 

Effective January 6, 2022, the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health will require the following:

  • Masks must be worn at all times while indoors at Cardrooms. Patrons may remove masks only when actively eating or drinking in designated areas and may not consume food or beverage while playing or gaming.
  • As soon as possible, but no later than January 17, 2022, employers are required to provide their employees, who work indoors and in close contact with other workers or the public, with and require them to wear a well-fitting medical grade mask, surgical mask or higher-level respirator, such as an N95 filtering facepiece or KN95, at all times while indoors at the worksite or facility.
  • In alignment with the State Public Health Officer’s December 31, 2021 Order, beginning January 15, 2022, attendance thresholds are lowered to 500 attendees for Indoor Mega Events and lowered to 5,000 attendees for Outdoor Mega Events.
  • Recognizing the protection provided by masking while indoors and in crowded settings, there is a strong recommendation that at Mega Events, Performance Venues, Movie Theaters, and Entertainment Venues, food and drink only be consumed, where possible, in designated dining areas.
  • Mega Events, Performance Venues, Movie Theater, and Entertainment Venues are responsible for messaging, signage, and compliance with masking requirement unless spectators/customers are actively eating or drinking.

We take this pandemic very seriously and send our deepest sympathies to those whose lives have been affected by this virus. Residents, business owners, and employees must continue to observe the mandates and prevention techniques outlined in the Order. As a reminder, failure to comply with these provisions constitutes a threat to public health and is punishable by a citation or fine.
