(July 16, 2021; Beverly Hills, CA) – The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) has announced that effective 11:59 p.m. Saturday, July 17, face masks will be required to be worn by everyone indoors, regardless of vaccination status due to the steady increase in cases since the June 15 reopening, with the County recording the highest number of new COVID-19 cases since mid-March 2021.
The County has stressed that wearing a mask indoors reduces the risk of both getting and transmitting the virus. While the reinstated mandate can help slow the spread of the virus, the new Health Officer Order does not limit business occupancy and operations.
This announcement impacts businesses in the City of Beverly Hills under its current urgency ordinance that aligns masking guidelines with LACDPH. The updated Health Officer Order can be viewed at beverlyhills.org/coronavirus.
Due to the new mandate, the Beverly Hills City Council will hold a Virtual City Council Special Meeting on July 22, 2021 at 3:30 p.m. to consider updates to additional items in the urgency ordinance. Meeting login information and details will be available at beverlyhills.org/councilmeetings.
For questions specific to business impacts from the new Health Office Order, please email email@example.com.
