LA County’s newest restrictions to stop the spread of COVID-19 include the closure of outdoor dining and card rooms, which has caused some local cities within the county to look into alternatives to the order.
Beverly Hills City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday to oppose the Los Angeles County ban on outdoor dining. In Lancaster, city officials are considering outlining a process to create a municipal health department similar to Pasadena’s, as well as a no confidence vote in county health officer Barbara Ferrer. On Monday, the mayors of Commerce, Bell Gardens and Hawaiian Gardens convened to call on the county to allow for the continued outdoor operation of card rooms, which had to fully close under the most recent health order. And in West Covina, Mayor Tony Wu introduced a request for the City Council to discuss alternatives to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health services.
