May 6, 2021: Los Angeles County has met the threshold for the least restrictive yellow tier in the State's Blueprint for a Safer Economy.
A revised Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will go into effect on Thursday, May 6, to reflect newly permitted activities.
Moving into the yellow tier allows, on Thursday, for increases in capacity in many sectors and allows bars to begin providing indoor service at 25% capacity.All of these changes will still require safety modifications, including masking, distancing and infection control to reduce the risk of transmission.
The sectors with increases in capacity limits include amusement parks and fairs, gyms and fitness centers, yoga studios, private events, bars, hotels and short-term lodging rentals, private gatherings, breweries, indoor playgrounds, restaurants, cardrooms and racetracks, indoor and outdoor live events and performances, wineries and tasting rooms, family entertainment centers, and museums, zoos, and aquariums.
