On May 7, 2020, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) issued a revision to its “Safer at Home” order that has been in effect since March 19, 2020. The revision partially relaxes the “Safer at Home” order to allow for certain “low-risk” businesses to re-open with limited
operations as well as provides for the re-opening of parks (not playgrounds) and trails with
continuing social distancing requirements:
- Effective Friday, May 8, 2020, the following previously designated “non-essential retail” businesses will be allowed to operate with curbside pick-up service ONLY (i.e. no indoor shopping is permitted): florists, toy stores, bookstores, clothing stores, music stores, sporting goods stores, car dealership showrooms, and golf courses (not pro shops). Social distancing and infection control protocols are required. For a complete list of non-essential businesses that will be permitted to operate curbside pick-up service, please refer directly to the Department of Public Health’s website at www.publichealth.lacounty.gov;
- Effective Friday, May 8, 2020, all City and County trails will be re-opened to public use, however, use shall require appropriate social distancing, no group rides/uses, trash must be taken out by users, and face coverings shall be required at all times. Please see the attached County DPH Protocols for the proper use of City and County public trails;
- City parks have remained open throughout the “Safer at Home” order. Effective Friday, May 8, 2020, previously closed County parks will be re-opened for public use. Open space/”green” areas of parks will be available, however, playground equipment, sports fields, and public restrooms will remain closed.
