Los Angeles begins implementing vaccine mandate in gyms, restaurants and businesses

LOS ANGELES, Calif .– The city of Los Angeles began enforcing its vaccine mandate on domestic businesses on Monday, including gyms, restaurants and other facilities, with inspectors able to impose thousands of dollars in fines over time.

Fox 11 KTTV reported:

Los Angeles began enforcing its law on Monday requiring Angelenos to frequent indoor restaurants, gyms, entertainment and recreation facilities, personal care facilities and certain buildings in the city to show proof of full COVID vaccination. 19.

The law went into effect on November 8, but from Monday the Ministry of Building and Security can issue administrative citations to companies that violate the ordinance. The citations will include a fine of $ 1,000 for a second offense, $ 2,000 for a third offense and a fine of $ 5,000 for a fourth and subsequent offenses.

The city’s SafePassLA ordinance is one of the strictest mandates of its kind in the country, requiring people over the age of 12 to show proof of vaccination in several indoor public spaces.

People can be exempt from the warrant if they have health problems that limit their ability to get the vaccine or a “sincere religious belief,” according to the ordinance. These exemptions will need to be reviewed by where the person is trying to enter.

Los Angeles County has its own vaccine requirement, which is less stringent and went into effect on November 4.

San Diego will begin applying a vaccine mandate to city employees by Wednesday; about a third of local police are believed to be unvaccinated.
