Los Angeles Mayor Issues New Stay-At-Home Order Amidst COVID-19 Spike

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti issued a new stay-at-home order for residents, warning that the city is approaching a “devastating tipping point” in its fight against COVID-19 that would overwhelm the hospital system.

“We must minimize contact with others as much as possible,” Garcetti wrote in the order. The steps were needed to avoid risking “needless suffering and death,” he said.

The order prohibits public and private gatherings of people from more than one household and states that all businesses in the city that require people to work on location must stop operations.

Walking, driving, travel on public transport, bikes, motorcycles and scooters are prohibited, other than for those undertaking essential activities.

There are several exemptions, including for faith-based outdoor services and the homeless. Services that are allowed to operate include supermarkets, grocery stores and health-care operations, but that doesn’t cover gyms and similar facilities. Still, activities such as golf, tennis and pickleball are permitted, according to the order.

The city’s safety protocols on social distancing follow those developed by Los Angeles County, Garcetti said.

Los Angeles County has the most infections of any county in the U.S., with 408,396 confirmed cases and 7,700 deaths.
