LA Issues A New Safer-At-Home Order And It Starts Monday
With the number of coronavirus cases spiking in L.A. County, officials issued a new, temporary safer-at-home order today. It takes effect on Monday and lasts for three weeks, until Dec. 20.
Besides urging people to stay home as much as possible and to always wear a mask in public, the order prohibits public and private gatherings with individuals not in your household, except for church services and protests.
It allows most businesses that were open to remain open, but with reduced maximum capacity.
Schools and day camps can remain open as long as they stick to reopening protocols.
The order was triggered today when the five-day average of new cases rose above 4,500.
