Los Angeles City Council Deciding on Sure Death to Local Business: Mandatory Proof of Vaccination to Enter

‘They just don’t understand the damage that they will do’

By Evan Symon, September 29, 2021 2:16 am

On Wednesday, the Los Angeles City Council is to decide upon one of the largest COVID-19 vaccination requirements in the country, mandating that either vaccination proof or a recent negative COVID-19 test will be needed to enter most indoor businesses in the city, including restaurants, salons, movie theaters, malls, gyms, and other establishments.

To date, Los Angeles has only focused on mandates for workers and for those at outdoor events with more than 10,000 people. Despite other cities such as San Francisco, San Jose, and Palm Springs enacting indoor business vaccination proof mandates for those 12 and up in the last several months, Los Angeles has yet to bring sweeping vaccination mandates to indoor businesses outside of a previous mandate covering bars, wineries, breweries, and other drinking establishments.

However, since last month, the city has been working on an indoor mandate draft to help further curb the spread of the delta variant, as well as other new variants, that have been striking the city. While the overall number of new daily cases, deaths and testing positivity rates have been falling in LA since early August, the Council nonetheless decided to push for the mandate as a precaution in high-risk areas with a lot of people.

“If we ever want to get back to normal, to what Los Angeles was like pre-COVID, we need to stop the spread in places most high risk,” said Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez in August. “So, if individuals want to go to their gym, go to their local bar without a mask, you need to get vaccinated. And if you want to watch a basketball game, a baseball game, go to a concert at a big venue, or even go into a movie theater, you need to get a shot.”

Other Councilmembers also noted that the push for vaccinations would not deny people going to places to get essentials such as food or medicine.

“COVID-19 could be eradicated if we had mass vaccinations across the country and across the world,” added Councilman Mitch O’Farrell. “Why on Earth is it OK in 2021 to have 30-plus people die in the county of Los Angeles from COVID over a three-day period, including an 11-year-old girl, when we have a vaccine that could have prevented all of that, accessible to everyone. This is not a vaccine mandate. We’re not going to deny anyone the ability to access essentials, food, medicine, etc., regardless of vaccination. But what is immoral is choosing not to get vaccinated, choosing to listen to some delusional rant on Twitter.”

Economic fallout from the proposed business vaccination mandate

While many are in favor of the mandate, opponents to the mandate have said that the economic fallout to the city could be devastating, especially in areas where tourists, who are less likely to have been vaccinated and have proof or a recent test, are prevalent.

San Francisco businesses, especially those that cater to tourists, have seen a large drop off in customers since their mandate was put into place in early August. Many restaurants and other businesses are still seeing drop-offs from pre-COVID-19 figures in the thousands per day almost two months later. And for many Los Angeles area business owners, that prospect is terrifying.

“We rely on tourists,” said Sid Stevens, who co-owns two Hollywood restaurants, to the Globe on Tuesday. “We managed to survive the lockdowns here and we just don’t need this. We’re finally getting people back in, we’re finally getting tourists again. Now LA wants to limit us again. We can’t afford to lose business and go back in the red again.

“And look, cases are going way down and things are improving. Why do they need to spike the football? They just don’t understand the damage that they will do. And a lot of restaurants feel this way. The bar next door to one of my restaurants  is freaking out out over previous mandate affecting bars. Well, that’s going to be us.

“This is just going to hurt way more people than it helps.”

The City Council is expected to vote on the mandate during their next meeting on Wednesday September 29th.

  1. Can someone please rationally explain to me the thought process of any these mandates? The current vaccines do not prevent spreading or contracting covid, or even death, and vaxxed still have to wear masks, so WHAT IS THE POINT?

    1. The rationale is controlling the population and culling them into a technocratic control grid while destroying the middle class. If you are looking for a scientific rationale, there is none.

  2. They know exactly what they’re doing. This isn’t about the virus, it’s much bigger than that. It is a systematic takedown of small business, the health care industry, the military, and more. They’re going to wipe these systems out to usher in a New World Order where you own nothing and can do nothing without the State’s approval. Buckle up.

    1. Excellent!
      So happy to see the Spartacus Letter link posted here. It is very well written.
      This is one publication that should be spread far and wide. I highly recommend people download and make a hard copy. It is well researched with 17 pages of references.

  3. Letter to the Los Angeles Council Members:

    Dear Councilmembers,

    Positive Covid numbers and deaths have been consistently falling in the past two weeks before your motion to consider this ordinance. And yet you are still pushing a vote on this horrendous “Proof of Vaccination Ordinance” tomorrow?! If this passes, do you realize that Los Angeles will be only the fourth city in this country to make such a foolish mistake? That’s FOUR cities out of hundreds of thousands of cities that have not attempted to bring such a racist, harmful and preposterous ordinance to law. There MUST be a reason the majority of cities in this country are not so foolish.

    This ordinance is entirely unneeded. It is inconsiderate. It is nonsensical. It is damaging. It is despicable. And it is racist – Please consider at least, the African American community who’s rights will be stripped if this ordinance passes. The majority of the African American community is not vaccinated due to their reluctance to get the vaccine, due to their wariness from enduring the legacy of the egregious Tuskegee syphilis study. If you vote yes on this racist ordinance, then each of you are personally advocating systemic racism and no doubt will be fueling more events like what the New York BLM Leader is promising, a National uprising’ over racist vaccine mandates: https://www.dailywire.com/news/new-york-blm-leader-promises-national-uprising-over-racist-vaccine-mandates-similar

    Our city and our country should not have to go through all this again! Or any more riots that may happen as a result of a national uprising!

    And have any of you even considered the numerous L.A. businesses and the L.A. economy that are both already struggling and hanging on by a thread due to the last 18 months of damaging restrictions? They will of course be hurt further due to this ridiculous damaging ordinance in more ways than one.

    And are you even aware of the studies, facts and science that have repeatedly shown and proved that the vaccinated spread the virus, quite possibly for obvious reason, even more so than the unvaccinated? “Study Finds High COVID-19 Transmissions Among Vaccinated Individuals” https://www.medicaldaily.com/study-finds-high-covid-19-transmissions-among-vaccinated-individuals-462219

    Are you aware of our (the vaccinated and unvaccinated citizens) civil liberties and constitutional rights?

    We have had enough! We do not need false and damaging so-called “action” by you for you to validate your existence and for you to maintain office! You have done enough to already bring this city to its knees and its citizens/voters to their knees as well! This vote tomorrow could be your chance to redeem your credibility!

    Do the right thing and VOTE NO!

    Thank you!

    Truly,

    A very concerned Los Angeles Citizen and Voter

    1. You actually think they care about any of that stuff??? Btw get ready for the “climate change” lockdowns in the near future when the carbon “numbers” get too high… They have already proved people will bend over and take anything if you can guilt the gullible enough…..

    1. John,
      Maybe the millions of Los Angelenos such as yourself may not know the entire scope of the City Councils plan. The have passed a City Ordinance No. 187134 that will require ALL city employees, business (employees) doing or providing services to the City of LA to be fully vaccinated. This will be causing the City to potentially terminate tens of thousands of employees and not letting individuals make the medical treatment decision for themselves. Firefighters already use PPE’s and take precautions to protect themselves and the citizens such as yourself from harm. Sick people call us…we don’t come to work sick to spread infection. If the City council is allowed to continue and enforces this ordinance the citizens of LA will surely suffer the consequences all for what..to eliminate choice? As you mentioned, the cases have been dropping for 30+ days in a row and Californian has the lowest cases in the nation. Measures in place are working..thats a fact so why impose more restrictions? Think of the city services that will come to a screeching halt? Sanitation, Police, Fire, DWP, city administration business assistance, and many other Dept’s. The citizens have not clue what is about to befall them.
      They can’t un-ring the bell. I hope you’ll share with your fellow citizens this concern that many city employees share and we strive to serve you , the citizens in the best way we can…which we’ve done from the very start through the beginning of the pandemic not knowing what would happen to us but were willing to do our jobs for you.
      Case declining every day, some politicians exempt form mandates, success in serving the public the past 18 months, fire season once again upon us, treatments available, LA County DHS reducing the COIVD treatment protocols for EMS response..and I can go on. I hope you know now what you may not have been told by your city politicians.

  5. “We need to stop the spread in places most high risk,” says Ms Martinez. Well can you show us your analytical studies or any data you have that proves which places, environments, etc are high risk? What are you basing your “high risk” places on? And once again, there is NEVER any mention of those with natural immunity. Why on earth would you want to keep those with natural immunity away from all businesses? Think about airlines for the past year, full of vaccinated and unvaccinated, masks off to drink/eat and I have yet to hear of any outbreaks of COVID. Yes, airlines have good air circulation, but they have the closest, enclosed quarters I can imagine. Show me the data, show me the science, answer me as to why we are having vaccine passports (cause that is what this is) when even the vaccinated are spreading the virus and so many of the vaccinated are getting COVID. Basically they are saying yes the vaccinated can spread the virus, yes you can still get COVID with the vaccine, yes you still must wear a mask when vaccinated, all the same statements as unvaccinated but because you took the shot you get more freedoms even though the risks are the same. Does that make sense?

  6. Another letter to Los Angeles Councilmembers:

    Dear Councilmembers,

    The below statements from Councilmember’s Krekorian and Martinez are incredibly shockingly appalling, unintelligent, uniformed and despicable!

    This is authoritarian/totalitarian coercion!

    These statements are not backed by any logic, or facts or science to support the reasoning or lack thereof rather!

    There IS, in fact, logic, facts and science that support that the unvaccinated and 100% not a threat in any way to the vaccinated and unvaccinated! PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH! And do the right thing and vote NO on this preposterous and damaging ordinance!

    “Nothing in this ordinance requires you to go and get vaccinated, at all,” Councilman Paul Krekorian said, Wednesday. “What it does is provide that there are certain places that if you are not vaccinated, you will not be allowed to go put other people at risk. That is at the essence of what a free society is about. You have rights, you liberties, but with those rights and liberties come obligations to protect fellow members of your society, as well. If we are to have prohibitions on entry into buildings, we have to be especially certain that in every case, we are able to provide the same level of service to our constituents in every city department.”

    “No one is forcing anyone to get vaccinated, but if you don’t, there are certain things you will not be able to do without showing proof of vaccination,” Martinez said during the Wednesday council meeting. “Angelenos deserve to see the other side of this pandemic. We deserve to walk around without wearing a mask, without restrictions and without fear.”
    Thank you!

  7. So we have the flu every year a virus is like a flu you can’t stop it by imposing unconstitutional restrictions that have no science behind them. Corruption plain and simple an unconstitutional coup d’etat brought to you by the 1% Global-Media- Pharma Big Brother reset crowd not health related at all. They destroy our economy, liberty, health, privacy, throw out the rule of law and make billions. Recall them all.

  8. “’COVID-19 could be eradicated if we had mass vaccinations across the country and across the world,’ added Councilman Mitch O’Farrell.”

    So Mitch O’Farrell knows more about virology than the inventor of mRNA, Dr. Robert Malone? What a joke! Dr. Malone says that mass vaccinations being promoted by politicians is dangerous, creates ever stronger variants.

    From a paper from Dr. Malone, and Peter Navaro, “There appears to be modest benefit from the inoculations to the elderly population most at risk, no benefit to the younger population not at risk, and much potential for harm from the inoculations to both populations. It is unclear why this mass inoculation for all groups is being done, being allowed, and being promoted.”

  9. Yes, it is high time the political elite support their diktats to “get back to normal” with facts!
    If the stats are true according to the LAPHD, age 12+ eligible are 77.1% vaccinated and 65+ eligible are 92% vaccinated.
    Because the con artists do not like to include natural immunity they will not concede Los Angeles county and California are at herd immunity. There is no need to force vaccinations.
    As stated by many readers here this is not about health and safety it is about CONTROL.
    They want to crush small business and the health care system.
    They want to segregate people once again and usher in the Great Reset.
    Ten months into the “vaccination” program and the adverse effects and death rates are coming to light.
    Here is just one report to read:
    https://jamesfetzer.org/wp-content/uploads/THE-VACCINE-DEATH-REPORT.pdf

  10. Just returned from France where a vaccine passport (Pass Sanitaire) is mandatory in most businesses, museums and restaurants (even outdoor cafés). Public transportation is excluded. If you’re not vaccinated you must have a negative antigen test within the past 72 hours, which can be scanned into your Pass using the QR code. Some store owners think this is all bollocks and don’t ask for the Pass or require masks, but they are few and far between. I can see this coming to the US but only state-by-state, starting with the Peoples Republic of California.

  11. We have to take away your rights to travel and coerce you into taking an expirmental medical treatment so that things can get back to normal.

  12. How do the vaccinated face danger from the unvaccinated if the vaccine works? How is it possible that they’re not even trying to explain this?
