As California reopens and physical distancing requirements and capacity limits for customers are lifted on June 15, protecting L.A County workers will be a top priority especially those communities that were hardest hit during the worst of the pandemic. Last week, the Cal/OSHA standards board recommended relaxing physical distancing and masking requirements for fully vaccinated workers, and other adjustments to align with the June 15 reopening. If the COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards are approved by the Office of Administrative Law, the standards are expected to go into effect no later than June 15.
The most powerful step to take to prevent COVID-19 infection, is getting vaccinated. As of June 4, more than 9,619,204 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to people across Los Angeles County. Of these, 5,501,512 were first doses and 4,117,512 were second doses. More than 4.5 million or 54% L.A. County residents 16 and over are fully vaccinated. Sixty-five percent have received one dose of the vaccine.
