Resources, assistance and what you need to know about the novel coronavirus
Beginning June 15, 2021, LA County will align with the state’s masking guidelines.
- Masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals, except in settings where masks are required for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, such as on public transportation and indoors in K-12 schools, childcare and other youth settings
- Masks are required for unvaccinated individuals in indoor public settings and businesses, such as retail, restaurants and theaters
- In settings where masks are required only for unvaccinated individuals, businesses, venue operators or hosts may choose to require masks, may implement vaccine verification, or may provide information to all patrons and guests regarding vaccination requirements and allow individuals to self-attest
