The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has modified its COVID-19 health order, reinstating a mask mandate for indoor public settings effective at 11:59 pm on Saturday, regardless of vaccination status.
KFI News reported the breaking news on Thursday afternoon shortly after county health officer Dr. Muntu Davis made the announcement during a virtual briefing.
According to a report from KFI’s Steve Gregory: “Davis says it’s easier for everyone to do the same thing, so the order was modified to level the playing field because so many people in L.A. County have not been vaccinated. Davis said if cases do not come down, other more restrictive measures could be implemented.”
Wearing a mask indoors with others reduces the risk of both getting & transmitting the virus. We’re requiring masking for everyone while indoors at public settings & businesses, regardless of vaccination status so that we can stop the increased level of transmission we’re seeing. pic.twitter.com/xmr77qsmBv
