Two days ago it was announced that all LA County retailers will be permitted to re-open, within guidelines and approval from health officials – the same as those put in place for how Walmart has been permitted to operate during this time. this basically translates into: social distancing, the wearing of masks and limiting the amount of people in the store at any one time.
Janice Hahn, LA County Supervisor noted:
“I think it’s a real lifeline that has been thrown to our small businesses – at a time when many of them, frankly, were wondering whether or not they could make it.”
This new measure would not currently be extended to personal hygiene/cosmetic stores. However, houses of worship will be able to re-open. The laws have already received approval in Riverside County.
