With the COVID infection rate in California among the lowest in the country, the city of Los Angeles is taking steps to maintain this.
Loud on Wednesday Los Angeles times, the Los Angeles City Council voted on a new ordinance requiring people who visit indoor restaurants, bars, gyms, shopping malls, movie theaters, and yes, concert halls to be fully vaccinated. Customers and participants must present a vaccination certificate for entry. As of now, New York City and San Francisco have similar laws, causing problems for some NBA players.
It will go into effect on November 4th until Mayor Eric Garcetti has signed the measure.
If companies fail to comply with the law, they will receive an initial warning before fines are increased to $ 1,000 for the second violation, $ 2,000 for the third, and $ 5,000 for the fourth. Enforcement begins on November 29th.
Now, the city of Los Angeles requires full vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test for major events, which is defined as anything with more than 10,000 people.
