LA loves a comeback story. We're welcoming back groups of any size for meetings and events, and we remain committed to being the safest destination for your next event.
On October 7, LA County revised its health order to provide additional precautions for outdoor mega-events and certain indoor establishments. These guidelines do not restrict capacities or social distancing requirements. However, they do require proof of full vaccination or negative COVID-19 test for events over 1,000 indoor or 10,000 outdoor and proof of at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is required to enter or work in indoor portions of bars, lounges, nightclubs, breweries, wineries, and distilleries. On November 4, bars and similar establishments throughout L.A. County will be required to verify full vaccination of all patrons and employees prior to entry to indoor portions of their establishments. LA County Public Health continues to require mask use in all public settings, including private events.
The City of Los Angeles has additional precautions in place that include proof of a COVID-19 vaccination to enter restaurants, bars, coffee shops, stores, gyms, spas or salons. The City has also lowered the criteria for outdoor events to 5,000 people.
Los Angeles is the first destination in the United States to receive the new health and safety verification badge from Forbes Travel Guide and Sharecare. The city is committed to verifying the health security of all hotels with 50 or more rooms. The process for each hotel covers more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees.
