UPDATE AS OF DECEMBER 29, 2020

The revised County of Los Angeles Temporary Targeted Safer at Home Health Office Order for Control of COVID-19 issued December 29 will remain in effect for as long as the State Public Health Officer's Regional Stay at Home Order remains in effect in the Southern California Region. Effective December 29, the State's Stay at Home Order has been extended indefinitely.


ORIGINAL POST: DECEMBER 6, 2020

As a result of the recent surge in COVID-19 cases and reduced capacity at ICU facilities throughout the region, the State has implemented a new Regional Stay Home Order that went into effect on Sunday, December 6 at 11:59 p.m. and will remain in effect for at least three weeks.

The current Los Angeles County Safer at Home Health Order will be modified to fully align with additional Regional Stay Home Order safety measures across sectors and the required effective date. The Order prohibits private gatherings of any size, closes sector operations, and requires 100% masking and physical distancing.

 The following sectors are required to close or remain closed for all operations: 

  • Indoor and outdoor playgrounds
  • Indoor recreational facilities
  • Hair salons and barbershops
  • Personal care services
  • Museums, zoos, and aquariums
  • Movie theaters
  • Wineries
  • Bars, breweries, and distilleries
  • Family entertainment centers
  • Cardrooms and satellite wagering
  • Limited services as defined by the state
  • Live audience sports
  • Amusement parks

The following sectors will have additional modifications in addition to 100% masking and physical distancing:

  • Outdoor recreational facilities: Allow outdoor operation only without any food, drink or alcohol sales. Additionally, overnight stays for recreational visits at campgrounds will not be permitted.
  • Retail: Allow indoor operation at 20% capacity with entrance metering and no eating or drinking in the stores. Additionally, special hours should be instituted for seniors and others with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems. 
  • Shopping centers: Allow indoor operation at 20% capacity with entrance metering and no eating or drinking in the stores and all common areas closed. Additionally, special hours should be instituted for seniors and others with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems.
  • Hotels and lodging: Allow to open for critical infrastructure support only.
  • Restaurants: Allow only for take-out, pick-up, or delivery.
  • Offices: Allow remote only except for critical infrastructure sectors where remote working is not possible. 
  • Places of worship and political expression: Allow outdoor services only.
  • Entertainment production including professional sports: Allow operation without live audiences. Additionally, testing protocol and “bubbles” are highly encouraged.

The Order does not modify existing school guidance. Schools that are open under County protocols can continue to provide in-person instruction as permitted.

Reminder, the month-long State-imposed overnight curfew that requires all non-essential activities to stop from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. remains in effect until December 21, 2020.
