LA County Reinstating Mask Mandate

On July 15, 2021, Los Angeles County’s Department of Public Health (the “Department”) announced at a press conference that it would be issuing a new public health order requiring all residents, regardless of vaccination status, to wear masks in indoor public spaces. The order will go into effect at 11:59 pm on Saturday, July 17, 2021.   

On July 13, 2021, the Department announced a substantial increase of COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County, with 1,1103 new cases—an increase of 500% in one month.

On June 28, 2021, the Department issued a recommendation that all residents remain masked in indoor public spaces regardless of vaccination status. However, this recommendation was not a formal public health order.
