County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer confirmed Friday that those venues, as well as any outdoor setting where there are more than 10,000 attendees, would be subject to the new, stricter vaccine-or-test requirements that will be imposed beginning next month.
7 at 11:59 p.m., guests age 12 and over will need to show either proof of vaccination or a negative result from a diagnostic test taken less than 72 hours before the event.
County and the state already require indoor events with more than 1,000 people â€” which includes venues such as Staples Center â€” to ask guests for proof of full vaccination or a recent negative result.
Starting Monday, the state no longer will allow those in attendance to simply state they are vaccinated or have recently tested negative; they must instead provide written proof.
County health order, published Friday night, also stipulates that proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required at indoor bars, wineries, breweries, nightclubs and lounges.
A recent negative coronavirus test cannot be used to enter.It was not immediately clear, though, whether the 10,000 figure refers to the total number of people who will enter the theme park during the course of a full day or whether the venues will be required to actively monitor attendance and screen only when they expect 10,000 or more people to attend at a given time.
7, that restaurants reserve and prioritize indoor seating for people fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
County, which still has too few people vaccinated to interrupt sustained transmission of the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus.
County residents 12 and older have at least one dose, only 67% are fully vaccinated.
That means getting more people vaccinated.The pace of COVID-19 vaccinations in Los Angeles County is so slow that thereâ€™s a risk of a â€œcycle of repeated surges every few months,â€ Los Angeles Countyâ€™s public health director warns.Ferrer said she also hoped the requirements would encourage more people to get vaccinated.Acceptable documents proving a recent negative coronavirus test result include a printed document, email or text message displayed on a phone from the test provider or lab, which needs to include the name of the person tested, the type of test and date of a recent negative test result.The county will also require attendees to show photo identification when providing proof of vaccination or a recent negative test.The California Department of Public Health recommends, but does not mandate, that attendees of outdoor mega events show proof theyâ€™ve recently tested negative for COVID-19 or have been fully vaccinated.
Countyâ€™s outdoor venue requirements also are stricter than those imposed in San Francisco, where guests of Oracle Park, where the Giants play, do not need to show proof of vaccination or a recent negative test for entry.But San Francisco does have stricter requirements for indoor venues such as Chase Center, where the Golden State Warriors play, where guests 12 and older at events of 1,000 or more attendees must show proof of vaccination to enter the venue and unvaccinated people cannot enter even if they have a negative coronavirus test.In the Bay Areaâ€™s most populous county, Santa Clara County, Leviâ€™s Stadium, where the 49ers play, is not required by officials to have guests show proof of vaccination or a negative coronavirus test.In San Jose, officials have required that, starting Monday, the city-owned SAP Center require attendees of events with 50 or more people age 12 and over to show proof of vaccination upon entering the facility, which hosts the San Jose Sharks.
A negative coronavirus test cannot be used by unvaccinated people to enter the facility.
