Everything That's Allowed To Reopen In LA County — And All The New Red Tier Rules
The rollercoaster continues.
Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.
LAist only exists with reader support. If you're in a position to give, your donation powers our reporters and keeps us independent.

The red tier is here, and with it new reopenings and rule changes, entry screening protocols, and ventilation, filtration and indoor air quality requirements.

Here's what's to know about where you can go. But keep in mind, just because something can reopen doesn't mean it has reopened.
