Mayor LaToya Cantrell updated residents on the guidelines for Phase Two of the safe reopening of the city as part of the ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic that has claimed the lives of more than 500 residents. Phase Two will go into effect on Saturday, June 13, at 6 a.m.
In Phase Two, there will be increased testing focus on:
Phase Two will ease restrictions on medium-risk operations, while continuing limits on occupancy, social distancing measures, and requirements for personal protective equipment. Sector-specific guidelines will be in place to ensure safe operations. High-risk residents, like seniors and people with serious medical conditions, should continue to stay home. Everyone should wear masks/face coverings while performing non-outdoor recreation public activities. All businesses will still be required to register with the State Fire Marshal’s Office via opensafely.la.gov.
The following guidelines are in line with the State’s Phase Two guidelines:
Operations opening at 50% capacity with distancing:
Opening at 25% capacity with distancing:
Operations that will remain closed and prohibited:
City Hall will ease some of the physical restrictions and open to the public at limited capacity. Individual departments and agencies will determine their guidelines.
As in Phase One, there are some guidelines that will differ from the State:
(Some operations are required to use a reservation system or to stagger admission. This is not different from Phase One, but it is different from the State.)
Residents and businesses will be expected to follow these guidelines as they have been during the Stay Home mandate and through Phase One. The City will be closely following the data for the next three weeks; this will determine the next steps.
