MPK News Release-Coronavirus COVID-19 Update 1-26-21 v2_Page_1

The State of California lifted the Regional Stay Home Order and moved all counties back into the blueprint for a Safer Economy color-coded tiers.  Los Angeles County, along with much of the State, is in the most restrictive purple tier.   

With the lifting of the Regional Stay Home Order, the Los Angeles County Health Officer Order (PDF) has been updated to more fully align with the sector openings permitted in the purple tier.  

The following is allowed effective immediately with adherence to all the sector specific directives to ensure distancing, wearing of face coverings, and infection control:

  • Private gatherings outdoors up to 3 households and up to a total of 15 people
  • Museums, zoos, aquariums outdoor operations at 50% occupancy 
  • Miniature golf, go karts, batting cages outdoor operations at 50% occupancy 
  • Outdoor recreational activities are open 
  • Hotels & motels for tourism and individual travel allowed 
  • Fitness facilities open for outdoor operations 
  • Personal care services open indoors at 25% capacity 
  • Indoor mall, shopping center, lower-risk retail open at 25% indoor capacity; food courts and common areas closed 

  The following restrictions remain in effect until January 29, 2021:

  • Restaurants, wineries and breweries remain open for pick-up, delivery, and take-out only. 
  • Non-essential businesses closed from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.  

Residents are advised to stay home as much as possible and always wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when they are outside their household and around others.  

Vaccine Update

While COVID-19 vaccine supply remains very limited, LA County Public Health has built an extensive network with pharmacies, federally qualified health centers, hospitals, health clinics, and community vaccination sites, including six large capacity sites, some managed by the City of LA and some by the County.  

Los Angeles County's COVID-19 Vaccine website, has incorporated the State's new appointment registration platform at The registration system features a streamlined process for residents eligible to receive the vaccine.  The system lets residents know if they are currently eligible and, if they are, can help find and book appointments that are available in their area.  The site also alerts people who registered to when appointments open up, or when vaccinations are opening up to additional priority groups.  Currently, MyTurn will make appointments for five large capacity sites as well as two other county-operated vaccination sites.  Appointments for all other locations, such as pharmacies and clinics, are also available on our website. Unfortunately, with limited vaccine supply, there are not enough appointments available to meet demand.  

Residents with internet access and a computer are urged to use to sign up for an appointment.  For those without access to a computer or the internet, or with disabilities, a call center is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. to help schedule appointments at 833-540-0473. The phone line is reserved for people with disabilities or who don’t have a computer or internet access.
