What you need to know about LAs renters protections!
To assist residential renters who have been economically impacted by the Coronavirus, the Mayor and the City Council have adopted tenant protections on evictions and rent increases in the City of Los Angeles.

Keeping Each Other Safe at Work - Masking up Indoors
The L.A. County Health Officer Order requires that all employees wear a face mask while working indoors or in shared vehicles regardless of vaccination status. Masks need not be worn indoors if the employee is alone in a room or actively eating or drinking. Public Health recommends that all employees who are eating or drinking indoors be spa

Face masks help prevent workers who do not know they have the COVID-19 virus from spreading it to others and they provide protection to the wearer as well. For masks to work properly, they need to completely cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly against the sides of your face and around your nose. Your mask should be made with two or more layers of tightly woven, breathable material. Upon request, employers are required to provide unvaccinated employees with the correct-size respirator along with basic instructions on how to use the respirator.
