Los Angeles County Reinstating Indoor Mask Mandate — Even If You're Vaccinated

Los Angeles County is reinstating their mandatory indoor mask mandate on Saturday at 11:59 p.m.


The mandate will apply to everyone — including those who are already fully vaccinated.

County health officer Muntu Davis held a virtual press conference announcing the public health order on Thursday. Masks will now be required in all indoor public establishments, including retail shops, grocery stores, bars, clubs, restaurants and workplaces.

Davis said that indoor dining will remain open, but that people will have to remain masked while they are not eating or drinking.

“Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a rapid and sustained increase in the number of new cases reported each day,” Davis said.

Some exceptions will apply, but the order will be similar to masking requirements that were in place prior to the state’s June 15 reopening, he said, according to a report from The Hill.

The mandate will be indefinite, according to Davis, “until we see improvements in our community transmission of COVID-19.”

When asked if the county might consider reimplementing additional requirements, such as capacity limits and physical distancing, Davis said, “Everything is on the table if things continue to get worse.”

Deaths from COVID have been low in the county, but hospitalizations have been on the rise, according to Davis. On Wednesday, there were reportedly 400 people hospitalized with it in the county.

The new mandate is beyond what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention currently recommends, as they have said that people who are vaccinated do not need to continue wearing masks.

The Hill report noted that “some public health experts warned that without requiring proof of vaccination, the CDC was inviting unvaccinated people to also go maskless, increasing the community risk and removing incentives for the holdouts to get vaccinated.”

There are approximately four million people who declined to get vaccinated in Los Angeles County.

“Currently, 69% of county residents aged 16 and older have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 61% are fully vaccinated. Among those aged 65 and older, 88% have received at least one dose, and 78% are fully vaccinated,” Fox 11 reports.

    Gavin Newsome just wants us all to wear masks because he’s such a fartface.

    The 69 percent who are partially vaccinated added to the 1 million who have been infected brings the total herd immunity to close to 70%. Obviously this is a meaningless goal. At home paper strip rapid antigen testing was rejected by the mayor of Los Angeles. A year ago.
    The main numbers to look at should be how many people are dying from COVID. That number trails infections, sure. But the County Board of Supervisors acts with complete disregard to the needs of people to earn a living. Or to worship God.
    Closing all news media would be more effective in controlling the epidemic. North Korea has shown the way.

    I do not comply. Eat shit and die, Commies.

    So much for following the science!! This is never going to end unless people push back…. stop wearing the masks. There is zero scientific evidence supporting the efficacy of the masks.

      I mean, there’s plenty of evidence related to HVAC systems and filtering particulates, but in those cases all the air actually passes THROUGH the filters. Not around the sides.

        Stop treating them like they are trying to do the right thing and ate just naive or dumb. No, they know what they are doing. They are not foolish, they are evil. Destroying the businesses and the will of the people is the goal, not a side effect. A pox on them and their families. They are enemies.
