LA County Moves Into Orange Tier
Los Angeles County has met the threshold for the less restrictive orange tier in the State's Blueprint for a Safer Economy. A revised Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will go into effect on Monday, April 5 at 12:01 a.m. to reflect newly permitted activities. This allows the County to follow the state guidelines and wait until three weeks are completed in the red tier to be sure that case numbers do not rise this third week since the County’s earlier re-openings. Please see the image below to view the changes that will be made to the Health Officer Order.
