Los Angeles County is expected to issue a new public health mandate that will require vaccinations for patrons who wish to enter indoor bars, wineries, breweries, lounges, and nightclubs.

The order is expected on Friday and will require customers and employees to have at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by Oct. 7 and be completely vaccinated by Nov. 7.

The new order will also require workers and people at “mega events” consisting of more than 10,000 attendees to either show recent negative COVID-19 test or proof vaccination, beginning Oct. 7.

The same conditions are currently in place for indoor events of at least 1,000 people.

For now, the mandate will not affect indoor portions of restaurants, but it will strongly recommend patrons to show proof of vaccination.

However, the  L.A. City Council is considering creating a law that would require customers at indoor restaurants and gyms to show proof they have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

The County of Los Angeles Public Health has reported 67% of residents ages 12 and older are vaccinated while 76% have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

“This is a reasonable path forward that will position us to be better able to break the cycle of surges,” Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said during an L.A. County Board of Supervisors meeting.

Although there has been a decrease in COVID-19 hospitalizations, Gov. Gavin Newsom noted it “was around this time last year we started to see that stabilization and decline as well, yet to experience that winter surge.”

“We need to be vigilant. Of course, the best way to mitigate that ... is to continue our vaccine efforts, and if this encourages more people to get vaccinated, then I believe it’s the right thing to do, and I continue to encourage others to follow that path.”

The mandate would impact all areas in L.A. County except Pasadena and Long Beach, which have their own public health departments.
