State rolls back reopenings of some businesses
Please regularly check our main page for Lakewood-specific coronavirus information and resources at www.lakewoodcity.org/COVID19.
Please note that the City of Lakewood falls under the jurisdiction of the L.A. County Department of Public Health. The cities of Pasadena and Long Beach have their own health departments and therefore issue separate orders that, although generally consistent with L.A. County, may have some differences that are not enforceable in Lakewood. The information below references the most recent L.A. County Department of Public Health Order and is applicable to the City of Lakewood.
NEWS UPDATE: New state directive that's effective July 13 in Los Angeles County requires the closure of the following types of businesses (unless they can be modified to operate outside or by pick-up):
- Gyms and Fitness Centers
- Offices for Non-Critical Infrastructure Sectors as identified at covid19.ca.gov
- Personal Care Services (including nail salons, massage parlors, and tattoo parlors)
- Hair Salons and Barbershops
- Places of Worship
- Indoor Protests
The following sectors remain closed in L.A. County, but the State now requires ALL counties to close:
· Bars, brewpubs, breweries, tasting rooms and wineries
· Indoor dining at restaurants
· Indoor museums, zoos and aquariums
· Family entertainment centers (e.g. bowling alleys, miniature golf, batting cages and arcades)
· Movie theaters
To help California reopen more effectively, Governor Newsom issued a statewide order on June 18 that mandates Californians to wear face coverings when around people in public spaces. The decision was made in an effort to slow the spread of the disease as more people venture out and positive cases and deaths related to the virus have increased.
