CBS Los Angeles reported:
Los Angeles City Council approved Wednesday a broad ordinance that requires proof of COVID-19 vaccine to be allowed into restaurants, bars and shopping centers.
This ordinance applies to:
- Restaurants, bars and fast food restaurants.
- Fitness venues and gyms that offer group classes, such as boxing, pilates, barre, yoga and dance studios.
- Entertainment venues include movie theatres and shopping malls as well as concert and performance venues.
- Personal care places, which include spas.
- People will be exempt from the mandate if they have medical conditions that restrict their ability to get vaccinated or a “sincerely held religious belief,” which will be reviewed by the location the person is trying to enter. Exempt people would have the right to access outdoor spaces, although they will need to provide proof that their vaccinations are valid.
