Mayor Eric Garcetti has issued an order requiring Angelenos to wear face coverings outside their homes.
The Mayor has also modified the City of L.A.’s “Safer at Home” emergency to allow all retail businesses except those in indoor malls to resume limited operations with delivery and curbside or door side service and to open beaches and more public recreational space for outdoor exercise.
New guidelines on face coverings exempt children under 2 and people with certain disabilities and build on previous action by Mayor Garcetti requiring non-medical essential business workers and customers to wear face coverings.
Mayor Garcetti also reassured Angelenos that while the end date has been removed from the Safer at Home emergency order, the City, County, and partners across the region and state are working continuously to get people back to work and their lives as safely and quickly as possible.
“We will continue to adjust the order gradually — to safely allow more activities, more businesses to operate, and more Angelenos to get back to work,” said Mayor Garcetti.
