Los Angeles County health officials announced Thursday that they would be re-implementing a countywide face covering mandate requiring all persons regardless of vaccination status to don face coverings while indoors starting at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, July 17, 2021.

Further details on the upcoming health order are to be released on Friday, July 16, 2021. Employers that previously relaxed face covering requirements for vaccinated individuals should promptly re-evaluate such policies in light of the new mandate.
