By next month Los Angeles will require residents and visitors to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccine in order to eat, drink, or shop in indoor establishments across the city.
Under this mandate, eligible patrons will need to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination to enter restaurants, bars, coffee shops, stores, gyms, spas or salons.
People attending large, outdoor events will also need to show evidence of either vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test to attend the event.
The mandate, is planned to go into effect in November 4 and forces anyone wishing to enter bars, restaurants, gyms and other venues to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test.
It also makes the jab compulsory for city employees, a massive problem given that 24% of the Los Angeles Police Department’s 12,000 employees last month sought religious or medical exemptions to the vaccine mandate.
One of Los Angeles’ County Sheriff, Alex Villanueva has refused to enforce a local vaccine mandate, saying he would risk losing up to 10 per cent of his.
