Los Angeles triggers a new “safer-at-home order” under virus restrictions

Los Angeles: A temporary ban is imposed on gatherings of people in Los Angeles County on Friday. The government bans gatherings from different households under a new “safer-at-home order” triggered by a spike in Covid-19 cases, with religious services and protests exempt.

The county’s public health department said that the order affecting the second-largest city will take effect Monday and last at least three weeks, until December 20.  A statement was said, “In the new Order that goes into effect on Monday, residents are advised to stay home as much as possible. All public and private gatherings with individuals not in your household are prohibited, except for faith-based services and protests, which are constitutionally protected rights.” Los Angeles County is densely populated and has suffered over 7,600 coronavirus deaths. California last week imposed a night-time curfew across much of the state, while Los Angeles County on Wednesday barred dining at restaurants but allowed delivery to continue.

The “safer-at-home” measures aren't severe as the city’s first lockdown in March, but the new order reduces occupancy limits at various businesses that can remain open, including shops, spas, and libraries. All schools can remain open unless they record outbreaks.
