Activities and Businesses Open in LA County

Person holding the business section of the newspaper.

Throughout the response to the COVID-19 crisis, City, County and State governments have worked together to safeguard the lives and livelihoods of Angelenos and all Californians. Our goal is to help workers and businesses take responsible steps toward resuming work, serving customers and rebuilding our economy.

After the State of California set minimum standards for local jurisdictions, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued safety protocols that are required for all businesses operating within the City of Los Angeles. In conjunction with the State of California, the Los Angeles Department of Public Health has updated their Health Officer Order to allow some businesses to reopen with specific protocols. Businesses should adhere to these protocols and convey that the establishment is following County guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19. These protocols can be found here: http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/.

Additionally, the City of Los Angeles developed toolkits to provide businesses with additional guidance for operating safely: https://corona-virus.la/Business.

The following link provides a partial list of public sites that are open and temporarily closed under the Reopening Safer at Work and in the Community for Control of COVID-19 Order. When visiting these sites, you must follow requirements to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
