On December 2, 2020, the City of Los Angeles issued a Targeted Safer at Home Order (the “Order”).  The Order provides that, “subject only to the exceptions outlined in this Order, all persons living within the City of Los Angeles are hereby ordered to remain in their homes.”  The exceptions include a list of 26 essential activities such as healthcare operations, grocery stores, agricultural, gas stations, banks, etc.  The full details can be found in the Targeted Safer at Home Order.

The Order also prohibits all public and private gatherings of any number of people from more than one household except for outdoor faith-based services described in the order and in-person outdoor protests while wearing a face covering, maintaining social distancing, and observing the Los Angeles County Protocol for Public Demonstrations.

The Order also includes limitations on 15 activities and business sectors including but not limited to beaches, personal care establishments, fitness facilities, libraries, and breweries and wineries.

The Order is similar to the County of Los Angeles Temporary Targeted Safer at Home Heath Officer Order that became effective on November 30, 2020, which is found here.

Companies with questions about either order should contact experienced counsel.
