Post Date:07/13/2020 5:15 PM

Hello Monrovians, 

Earlier today, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that LA County will be required to stop operations in the following industries or activities unless they can be modified to operate outside or by pick-up.

  • Offices for non-essential sectors
  • Gyms & Fitness centers
  • Personal care services, like nail salons, body waxing and tattoo parlors
  • Hair salons and barbershops
  • Places of Worship 
  • Indoor Malls

The Health Officer Order will be modified today to align with Governor Newsom’s directives.


Additionally, bars, indoor dining at restaurants, indoor museums, indoor operations at zoos and aquariums, and cardrooms are to remain closed in Los Angeles County, and all events and gatherings are prohibited unless specifically allowed by the Order. 

Over the last few weeks, LA County Department of Public Health continued to see evidence of increased community spread. Our community can continue to help slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a face covering, washing our hands frequently, keeping six-feet from others, and not gathering in groups.

Cloth Face Coverings are Required 

When you are leaving your home, carry a face covering with you. A clean face covering should be worn anytime you are in contact with other people who are not a part of your household in public or private spaces.

Cloth face coverings increases prevention of spreading respiratory droplets when talking, sneezing, or coughing. If everyone wears a cloth face covering when out in public, such as visiting a business, the risk of exposure to COVID-19 can be reduced for the entire community. 

In addition to wearing a cloth face covering when you leave your home, be sure to continue to practice physical distancing and wash your hands often.

Wear a Mask
