L.A. County Moves to Reopen Key Sectors
Stage 3 of Roadmap to Recovery
Los Angeles County is moving forward on the  Roadmap to Recovery  and reopening key economic and community sectors, including day camps, fitness centers, spectator-free professional sports, museums, campgrounds and entertainment production.

In the most comprehensive reopening since strict public health guidelines were put in place in March, today the Los Angeles Department of Public Health announced that the Health Officer Order will be modified tomorrow to include infection control and distancing requirements for re-opening the following sectors on June 12:

  • Gyms and fitness facilities
  • Professional sports without live audiences
  • Day camps
  • Museums, galleries, zoos and aquariums
  • Campgrounds, RV parks and outdoor recreation
  • Music, film and television production
  • Hotels, lodging and short-term rentals for tourism and individual travel

The County continues to monitor the spread of the virus and the capacity of the healthcare system to provide residents with essential services. With these reopenings, Los Angeles County will be in Phase 3 of the  State’s Resilience Roadmap .
However, this major step forward does not mean the threat of COVID-19 is gone. Residents must continue to practice physical distancing, wear cloth face coverings and follow public health directives.

If at any time, the County’s rate of infection and other key metrics demonstrate a rapid acceleration of new cases that threatens to overwhelm the healthcare system, the Department of Public Health and the Board of Supervisors may need to limit future re-openings or close reopened sectors.

Going to the gym, visiting a museum or going to camp will be very different than it was before the pandemic. Each sector reopening will have strict infection control directives in place. Just as is required for all out-of-home activities, visitors and staff will have to practice physical distancing and wear cloth face coverings. There will be limited capacity and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures. People feeling sick should stay home

Still closed are:

  • Nail salons
  • Tattoo shops
  • Bars and wineries
  • Movie theaters
  • Live performance theaters
  • Entertainment centers
  • Concert halls and venues
  • Stadiums, arenas, and gaming facilities
  • Theme parks and festivals.

Los Angeles County is still under a Safer At Work And In The Community Order and public and private gatherings of people outside of a single household unit are not permitted except for public protests and faith-based services. Everyone must continue to follow physical distancing and infection control protocols and wear a cloth face covering when in contact with others not from your household.
