On November 4, bars and similar establishments throughout L.A. County will be required to verify full vaccination of all patrons and employees prior to entry to indoor portions of their establishments.
Businesses and cities implementing targeted vaccination mandates are supported by teams at Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health). Mobile vaccination teams are going across the county to help get vaccinations to employees wherever needed, and Public Health is connecting businesses with testing vendors to provide the necessary testing for unvaccinated employees and patrons. If there is an organization or workplace where people may need to get vaccinated, you can request a mobile vaccination unit to provide vaccines. Public Health encourages you to visit the Find a Vaccination Provider page to request a visit at your workplace or organization from a mobile vaccination unit or other vaccination partners in the community to provide vaccines.
Public Health created toolkits to help businesses through all stages of implementation, which includes an overview of vaccination and testing requirements and FAQs for proprietors of bars and other businesses that serve alcohol, as well as for those running mega events. The toolkits can be found online, at: http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/business-verification.htm
