LA County Expands Vaccination Mandates to Include Workers, Concerts

Mandate includes all bars, night clubs and large outdoor events like concerts and sporting events

On Wednesday, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced that, due to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases within the county and the continued transmission risk, vaccination mandates would be expanded to include workers and customers at all bars and night clubs and large outdoor events like concerts and sporting events.

Specifically, the updated mandate would fall under the vaccination lines set by President Joe Biden’s vaccination policy plan released last week. Under the new LA County mandate, all outdoor mega-events with more than 10,000 people, such as sporting events, concerts, and theme parks, will require either a full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within the last 72 hours before going by October 7th.

Press play to hear a narrated version of this story, presented by AudioHopper.

The modified Health Officer Order would also require all workers and customers at indoor bars, breweries, wineries, night clubs, and lounges to have at least one dose of the vaccine by October 7th and both doses by November 4th. While not under the mandate, vaccine verification at indoor restaurants was also highly recommended.

The updated health order also expands more recent additions to the Health Order, such as the indoor mega event mandate that requires proof of vaccination or a negative test.

“We in public health believe that targeted vaccination mandates are an important strategy for quickly raising vaccination coverage in our county and ending the pandemic, and we applaud our President, our Governor, our Board of Supervisors, our cities and school districts, and business establishments across the county for creating additional safety in spaces where people are intermingling with the use of targeted vaccination mandates,” said Los Angeles County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer on Wednesday. “As evidence mounts affirming the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines, vaccination mandates are an increasingly important tool to prevent future COVID surges that cause widespread suffering. The modified Health Officer Order aligns with the continued need to reduce risk for transmission and increase vaccination coverage; this is a reasonable path forward that can position us to be better able to break the cycle of surges.”

However, the new mandate addition has brought out significant opposition.

“They’re closing off more and more things to people choosing to not get the vaccine or those who can’t get it,” said Madeline Price, a Southern California paralegal whose firm has been one of several challenging the recent upswing of vaccination mandates. “This isn’t going to help convince people. It’s just going to make people more upset and it means more lawsuits and challenges to cities and counties and states against this. Mandates are already hurting a lot of businesses across the state. And it’s continuing today. A lot of people are going to be turned away from businesses because of this, and right now, that’s the last thing many of them need.”

More mandates in LA County and other counties in the state are expected soon as the most recent COVID-19 surge continues.

  1. Elections have consequences.

    We have a permanent virus in the Governors seat. As long as Newsolini is in control it will be perpetual mandates.

    If the fake doctor were to get 100 percent compliance, would the SARSCOV-2 magically vanish? No, the virus will continue to mutate and spread, just like the common cold and flu.
    Again this is about control.

  2. Dr. (I’m not a real doctor) Ferrer won’t be happy until every small business is gone and everyone is dead or has severe depression. Dr. Seuss could have handled this better. The fact that they refuse to address all the people that have natural immunity tells you this has nothing to do with health (science) and everything to do with subjugation and control… This witch needs to be…..

  3. Just wait until these tyrannical morons finally realize that it’s the VAXXED that are shedding the virus, or maybe that’s what their Great Reset Masters & ChiCom funders WANT, to increase the death count from the clots & related cardiovascular adverse events…

  4. Sounds like basic government logic – it doesn’t work – lets do more of it.
    This will not stop until the people say NO.

  5. Well, my appetite for dinner just disappeared after seeing a picture of the harpy from hell. What’s worse is that the inside is uglier than the outside.

  6. Deaths, “cases” and hospitalizations are all dropping… No mention of people with natural immunity. This was announce the day after Warden Newsom escaped the recall. This is the beginning of his revenge….
    Btw if this was really about health and public safety why does in not go into affect for 3 weeks. You are being duped folks…

  7. Somewhere along the line The People of CA. Stopped voting, WTH? About 7 million for the dictator GRUSOME & about 3.6 million votes to remove his a**. There is around 40 million legal Californians, about 10 million are under 18 ,So I ask WTH? 30 MILLION DIDN’T VOTE! Time to let the gangster’s know that the libbies are letting in ISIS K & Nigerians to take over their territory one by one then maybe CA gets somewhere Real Gangster’s Don’t Do well if they get played! ALL THAT FREE $$$ IS BEING SPENT A THOUSAND TIMES OVER. I became involved and worked the polls on RECALL JOKE DAY, (16 Hrs, 3 -10 minute breaks & a 30 minute lunch lol against the law first ) It was so SHADY as was the 2 hr class requirement, Don’t ask demeanor” LMAO Not from this chick! Something I wanted to do before leaving CA. I got my pin & know I actually gave a shit and just didn’t stand by to put my 2 cents in, I earned it!
