LA City Council To Debate Vaccine Proof For Entry To Indoor Spaces –

The Los Angeles City Council will debate on August 28 the motion by Councilman David Ryu for a motion to ban unvaccinated people from the public spaces of the city. The ban, which if passed, will replace the current law that allows unvaccinated people to enter public places as long as they have a medical certificate.

The LA City Council will be discussing on Tuesday, June 27th, a proposal that will require all public health and school facilities to have a vaccine exemption form signed by anyone seeking entry if they have not had all required vaccines. The proposal would also require all parents to bring with them a copy of their child’s immunization records when they attend public school. Those who do not provide the records would be barred from entry.

(CBSLA) – LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – The Los Angeles City Council will discuss a plan that would require individuals to have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccination before entering most indoor public places, including restaurants, gyms, entertainment venues, and even some shops, on Wednesday.

If approved, the ordinance would be drafted by L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer. It would be identical to the one unveiled by New York City authorities last month.

Only more entertainment-oriented establishments, such as restaurants, fitness facilities, and theaters, are excluded from the New York regulation. However, the Los Angeles move may go a step farther and include some retail outlets. During the writing of the ordinance, the specific companies that would be subject to the limitations would be identified.

On Tuesday, Feuer voiced his support for such a vaccination requirement.

“What I call optional sites, which are places that aren’t required but are nonetheless popular: restaurants, bars, gyms, theaters, and other big events,” Feuer stated at a press conference. “Let me be very clear: No shots, no admission.”

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors overwhelmingly adopted a proposal to explore requiring evidence of vaccination to access certain indoor public places on Tuesday as well. The measure would only affect unincorporated areas of the county, not the city of Los Angeles. County employees and lawyers now have two weeks to flesh out the details of such a policy.

Last Monday, Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis issued an executive order mandating COVID-19 vaccination for all county workers. All workers must be properly vaccinated or face being dismissed, according to the Los Angeles County Superior Court.

California has mandated that all state employees be immunized or tested on a regular basis. By September 30, the state will require all health-care employees to get vaccinated. Workers may choose to opt out of the order for medical or religious grounds.

Gov. Gavin Newsom is set to announce on Wednesday that all California teachers will be required to get vaccinated against the coronavirus or undergo monthly testing.

This comes as the extremely infectious Delta form of the coronavirus has caused a spike in the coronavirus in Los Angeles County.

According to County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, 15,628 out of more than 5 million fully vaccinated county citizens tested positive as of Aug. 3, for a rate of 0.31 percent. There were 446 completely vaccinated individuals hospitalized, with a rate of 0.009%, and 41 of them died, at a rate of 0.0008 percent.

On Tuesday, the county recorded 2,622 COVID-19 infections and 22 fatalities.

As of Tuesday, 1,573 individuals have been admitted to hospitals owing to COVID, with 350 of them in critical care. According to Ferrer, about 90% of hospital patients are unvaccinated. According to her, 96 percent of those who died from the illness between April and July were unvaccinated.
