The forthcoming public health order will also require outdoor events of more than 10,000 attendees to require either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced on Wednesday (Sept. 15) that a forthcoming order will require patrons and employees of indoor bars, nightclubs, lounges, wineries and breweries countywide to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination before entering.
Under the order, which the public health department will move forward with later this week, both patrons and employees will be required to have at least one vaccine dose by Oct. 7 and be fully vaccinated by Nov. 4. Beginning Oct. 7, the order will also mandate that all attendees and workers at outdoor “mega-events” of 10,000 people or more show either proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test results received within 72 hours. That’s an extension of a previous order that required indoor events of more than 1,000 attendees to require proof of vaccination or a negative test result to enter.
