Indoor Live Events And Performances Will Be Permitted In L.A. From Tomorrow

The state restrictions have been updated thanks to increasing vaccination rates and lower positivity rates.

California health officials announced updates to various activities within the state’s Blueprint to a Safer Economy, allowing gatherings, private events or conferences, and indoor seated live events and performances will be allowed to resume from April 15.

“Today’s update to the Blueprint for a Safer Economy is a result of the progress we are making both in vaccinations and in controlling the spread of COVID-19,” said Dr. Mark Ghaly, Secretary of the California Health and Human Services Agency.

However, all of these events and activities will be limited to those residing within the state. Capacity will vary, depending on whether all attendees can provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.
