Barbara Ferrer Working on the Reopening Guidelines for Los Angeles

Barbara Ferrer, Los Angeles County Public Health Director, said that the county plans to release its operating guidelines for gyms, movie theaters, restaurants, theme park reopenings, and outdoor live events. The county anticipates moving into the less-restrictive “red” tier of California’s reopening Blueprint.

Earlier on Wednesday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced the loosening of state restriction. However, the local authorities have the right to be more restrictive than the state. The L.A. Health Officials have taken advantage of this option in the past. Even though the state guidelines permitted outdoor T.V. screens in restaurants, the L.A. officials prohibited it.

Barbara Ferrer said that they do not have a definitive answer for the permissions of indoor dining. Indoor dining is a permitted activity in the ‘red’ tier of the state’s Blueprint, despite the fact, Ferrer says they are uncertain about the same.

Barbara Ferrer said, “We’re looking at what is happening across the state. We’ll have a definitive answer about that tomorrow. I am going to ask everyone to take a look [at the new rules] tomorrow and be compliant.” She also reminded everyone that the state does not need to move back to the purple strategy.

Governor said earlier on Friday that the state will meet its threshold of administering 2 million Covid-19 vaccine doses in hard-hit and low-income communities. This will not only trigger a change in the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, but it will also provide a proper path for businesses to reopen. In the governor’s Blueprint, L.A. has been the most restrictive tier.
