Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti Orders All Residents Must Wear Face Coverings When They Leave Home

Los Angeles Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti said on Wednesday that all residents will be forced to wear face coverings when they leave their homes.
“We’re requiring all Angelenos to wear face coverings when they leave the house,” Garcetti said in a statement. “There are exceptions in place for small children or those with disabilities.”

“Our Safer at Home order will remain in place beyond May 15. Depending on public health conditions, we will continue to adjust the order to safely allow more businesses to operate and more people to get back to work,” Garcetti added. “All retail locations — from electronics to beauty stores — will now be allowed to open for curbside and doorside pickup and delivery. We are also allowing manufacturing that supports retail that is opening at reduced capacity as long as they can adhere to safety protocols.”
The announcement from Garcetti comes after Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said earlier this week, “Based on all of the data that we’re looking at … we know with all certainty that we’ll be extending health officer orders for the next three months.”
Garcetti walked back those claims on Wednesday evening during a news conference, saying that those remarks were not accurate.
“Let me cut to the chase, I know yesterday a lot of people felt very depressed, they saw and heard coverage in the news that implied somehow for the next three months Los Angeles County would be on lock down,” Garcetti said. “No, Los Angeles County is not going to be on lock down for three months.”

“Look at this past week and this week and brave steps forward,” Garcetti continued. “This hasn’t been a week of retreat, we’ve had to make tough calls, but based on the advice of our public health officials and people who are that suffering to take steps forward.”
