LA County Moves Into the State's Yellow Tier

(May 6, 2021) Beverly Hills, CA – The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LADPH) has announced that effective today, Los Angeles County has moved into the least restrictive yellow tier as part of the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

The move comes as a result of the County seeing its case rate drop from 1.9 to 1.6 new cases per 100,000 residents as well as a decrease in its test positivity rates from 1.0% to 0.8%.

According to the yellow tier, bars without meal service may now reopen indoor operations with limited occupancy and modifications in place. Occupancy limits will also be increased for restaurants, movie theaters, gyms, fitness centers, yoga studios, museums, zoos and aquariums.  

The yellow tier announcement impacts businesses in the City of Beverly Hills that fall within specific categories. The updated Health Officer Order and appendix protocols can be viewed at beverlyhills.org/coronavirus
