Updates to the Reopening Safer at Work and in the Community for Control of COVID-19 Order

Effective this Friday, November 20, 2020, the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health (DPH) will tighten the pandemic restrictions as COVID-19 cases continue to increase. These restrictions are to protect the health and safety of our residents and businesses. The revised Order includes the following revisions:

  • The number of customers at outdoor restaurants, breweries, and wineries will be limited to 50% maximum outdoor capacity. Restaurants, breweries, and wineries may not be open for in-person outdoor dining and wine services between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., but may continue to serve food for delivery, drive-thru, and carry out during the time closed for in-person dining.  
  • The number of customers at outdoor cardrooms, miniature golf, batting cages, and go-cart racing will be limited to 50% maximum outdoor capacity.
  • Services at indoor operations for retail, office, and personal care establishments will be limited to 25% capacity. Face coverings are to be worn at all times by staff and customers.
    • Services that require either the customer or the staff to remove their face covering, such as facials and shaves, are not permitted.
    • Food and drinks cannot be served at these establishments to customers.
  • Outdoor gatherings remain the only gatherings permitted, and they must only include 15 people maximum who are members of no more than three (3) households.
