Masks will no longer be required indoors in L.A. County, regardless of vax status.
From Friday, March 4, L.A. County residents will no longer be required to wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status. L.A.’s Publish Health Department announced the modification to the mandate in anticipation of a move into a low-risk tier.
There will be some exceptions, including public transport, emergency shelters, health care settings, correctional and detention facilities, homeless shelters, and long-term care facilities. Of course, you can still choose to wear a mask if you wish—and wearing a mask is still recommended for high-risk individuals.
Last week, L.A. County Public Health announced made masks will be optional for all indoor venues, businesses and establishments in L.A. County, following a sustained drop in hospitalizations. However, the update still required proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test.
Masks will still be required indoors at schools and childcare facilities until March 11. After which, masks will be strongly recommended for all staff and students regardless of vaccination status. Additionally, school districts in the county will be allowed to enforce masking and other safety protocols for school activities.
