Los Angeles, the most populated county in California, will begin to reopen Friday, along with the rest of the state.
Trails, golf courses, car dealerships, and florists are among those being allowed to reopen, as are retail shops for curbside pickup, according to county supervisor Kathryn Barger.
Los Angeles has seen 1,367 deaths due to Covid-19, making up for more than half of all fatalities in the state.
Health Director Barbara Ferrer emphasized that the lifting of restrictions will be slow, with other low risk, nonessential businesses reopening soon, but in a drastically modified way.
Employees should continue to telework whenever possible, Ferrer said.
