And the City of L.A. could make these guidelines official.

Vaccination rates have dropped, cases have surged (once again) and the number of bars requiring proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID test is growing. This follows the reinstatement of masks indoors in L.A. County on July 17 amidst the rapid rise in cases. However, LA City Council President Nury Martinez and Councilman Mitch O’Farrell have put forward a proposal, would require proof of at least one vaccination shot against COVID-19 for entry to public indoor spaces. This would include restaurants, bars, gyms, concert venues, movie theaters, and retail shops.

The mask mandate is mostly a response to the presence of the Delta variant, which is highly transmissible. While fully vaccinated individuals are largely protected from it there is still a small chance they can be infected and spread it, according to an LA Public Health press release. “Given that slightly under 4 million residents in L.A. County are not yet vaccinated, the risk of increased spread of this variant within the County remains high,” the release reads.

Businesses have had to continually grapple with the endless hurdles and ever-changing rules along with the responsibility of ensuring the safety of both patrons and employees. So it’s no surprise that they have taken measures into their own hands. As L.A. Taco first reported popular bars are now requesting digital or physical proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID test taken in the last 72 hours.
