In accordance with the State’s Public Health Order, LA County Department of Public Health revised the Health Officer Order and is effective June 15, 2021.

Face coverings are no longer required for fully vaccinated individuals, but they are still required for unvaccinated individuals in indoor public settings and businesses, such as restaurants, theaters, entertainment centers, and meetings. Masks are required for everyone in the following settings, regardless of vaccination status:

  • Public transit (ex: airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subways, buses, taxis, and rideshares) and in transportation hubs (ex: airport, bus terminal, marina, train station, seaport, subway station)
  • Indoors in K-12 Schools, childcare, and other youth settings.
  • Healthcare settings, including long term care facilities
  • State and local correctional facilities and detention centers
  • Homeless shelters, emergency shelters, and cooling shelters

Businesses may reopen without capacity limitations or physical distancing requirements in place. In settings where masks are required for unvaccinated and partially vaccinated individuals, businesses may choose to do the following:

  • Continue to require all persons to wear a face covering, regardless of vaccination status,
  • Post visible signage of mask requirements and allow customers to self-attest that they are in compliance prior to entry, or
  • Implement a proactive COVID-19 vaccination verification process to determine whether customers are required to wear a mask prior to entering the premises

As day camps and schools are considered higher risk for COVID-19 transmission, these sectors must follow LA County’s sector specific reopening protocols listed on their website. For more information about other sectors that require risk reduction measures, please see page six of the Health Officer Order.

The City of Lomita asks that our residents comply with the above orders to the maximum extent possible.
