New Health Officer Order, Additional Reopenings

LA County's Department of Public Health (DPH) has announced the reopening of key economic and community centers. Beginning tomorrow, June 12, day camps, fitness centers, spectator-free professional sports, museums, campgrounds and entertainment production is allowed to reopen.
A modified Health Order, to be issued by LA County's DPH, will highlight infection control and distancing requirements for each sector. The following locations are allowed to reopen as soon as tomorrow:

  • Gyms and fitness facilities
  • Professional sports without live audiences
  • Day camps
  • Museums, galleries, zoos and aquariums
  • Campgrounds, RV parks and outdoor recreation
  • Music, film and television production
  • Hotels, lodging and short-term rentals for tourism and individual travel
With these reopenings, LA County will be in Phase 3 of the State’s Resilience Roadmap.
While the latest reopenings are a major step forward, they do not mean the threat of COVID-19 is gone. Read our press release to see a list of Reopening Requirements and Guidelines employers, employees and the public will need to follow. Additionally, all County residents are reminded they must continue to:
  1. Practice physical distancing.
  2. Wear cloth face coverings.
  3. Follow public health directives.
We will continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and the capacity of our healthcare system to provide county residents with essential services. Should the rate of infection (and other key indicators) warrant, LA County may adjust orders to limit future reopenings or close reopened sectors.
