Los Angeles County is reviving a requirement that masks be worn indoors, regardless of one’s vaccination status, health officials said Thursday.
The requirement will go into effect at 11:59 p.m. on July 17. Some exceptions will apply.
“We’re not where we need to be for the millions at risk of infection here in Los Angeles County, and waiting to do something will be too late, given what we’re seeing,” L.A. County Health Officer Dr. Muntu Davis said in a virtual briefing with reporters.
