The County of Los Angeles has met the State’s metrics to move into the orange tier which permits the re-opening of additional sectors. The Department of Public Health (DPH) revised the “Reopening Safer at Work and in the Community for Control of COVID-19” Health Officer Order to allow the following sectors to re-open with specific safety measures in place, effective 12:01am on Monday, April 05, 2021:
- Bars that do not provide meals will be allowed to open outdoors with distancing, masking and infection control safety measures. Indoor operations are not permitted. Visits are limited to 90 minutes. Masks are required except when people are eating or drinking. There can be no counter seating and people can eat or drink only when they are seated. Tables must be 8 feet apart, with a maximum of 6 people from up to 3 different households. There can be no live entertainment, television is permitted outdoors only and hours of operations are from 11:30 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.
- Restaurants can increase capacity for indoor dining to 50% capacity or 200 people, whichever is less, with continued safety modifications.

Eating and drinking is allowed in only designated dining areas or while in your reserved seat. Masks must be worn at all times, while not eating or drinking.
- Family Entertainment Centers can open indoors at 25% capacity for distanced activities, such as bowling or escape rooms. Masks remain required.
- Grocery and Retail Stores can increase capacity to 75%, although Public Health strongly recommends grocery stores remain at 50% capacity until April 15 to allow time for as many grocery store workers as possible get vaccinated.

For services that require customers to remove their masks, such as facials or electrolysis, staff must wear a fitted N95 and goggles or a mask with a face shield.
