Yesterday morning, the L.A. City Council passed a mandate that requires customers and guests to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination upon entering businesses like restaurants, bars, theaters, museums, and stores.
As of Nov. 4, guests, clients, and customers 18+ and employees will have to show proof of full vaccination. The new law only applies to the city of Los Angeles, so other businesses in L.A. County can generate their own (similar) rules. Some of the law’s exemptions include those who claim to have a medical or religious reason for not getting vaccinated. They will have to provide a negative coronavirus test taken within the previous 72 hours.
If businesses do not abide by the new ordinance, they’re let off with a warning at first, a $1,000 fine for the second time, and a $5,000 fine for the following violations. The fines will go into effect on Nov. 29.
