Los Angeles Residents Begin Dropping Masks as Economy Fully Opens: “L.A.’s Comeback is Well Underway”
Posted up behind a podium boasting the slogan “California Roars Back,” California Governor Gavin Newsom braved a Southern California heatwave Tuesday morning to mark the most positive m…
After 15 months of pandemic restrictions, Tuesday marked a full reopening of California’s economy with the lifting of capacity limits, physical and social distancing requirements and the elimination of masks for fully vaccinated residents (with exceptions including public transportation and schools). Although no longer state-mandated, businesses can still choose to keep some restrictions in place or require proof of vaccination, as some patrons are likely to continue to wear masks regardless of shot status.
The news was cause for celebration, particularly among public officials like Newsom and L.A. County Department of Public Health director Dr. Barbara Ferrer, who spoke at a separate yet equally momentous press conference where she was joined by county leaders including Board of Supervisors chair Hilda Solis. Ferrer explained how the milestone reopening offered a sense of relief and optimism. “There were many times during this past year when it was hard to believe that we would ever feel these feelings again,” Ferrer explained.
She then recalled how the peak of the pandemic saw 277 deaths per day, a strained hospital system and more than 15,000 new cases per day. L.A. County remained a COVID-19 hot spot for many months with the country’s highest case count and most fatalities, with a surge that started in November and continued through February. As of Tuesday, the area counted 1.25 million cases and 24,433 deaths compared to statewide numbers of 3.8 million cases and 63,149 deaths. The same day California embraced normalcy, U.S. officials announced that the country had surpassed 600,000 deaths total. headtopics.com
“So many of us are still contending with the emotional, financial and physical fallout of this terrible time. We share in your heartbreak and we know that the path to recovery will be a very difficult one for so many. After 16 months of enormous upheaval and loss, we can now share in a genuine sense of hope,” said Ferrer.Read more: Hollywood Reporter »
