Outdoor dining in Los Angeles County will be shut down as the five-day average of new Covid-19 infections has passed 4,000 daily cases, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
The order, which will go into effect on Wednesday November 25 at 10 p.m., also includes dining at breweries, wineries, and bars.
“To reduce the possibility for crowding and the potential for exposures for people in settings which are not wearing their face coverings, restaurants, breweries, wineries and bars will only be able to offer take out, drive through and delivery services,” the release said.
The five-day average of new cases is at 4,097. If the five-day average number reaches 4,500 or hospitalizations reach 2,000 a Targeted Stay at Home Order will be issued for three weeks, according to the release.
There are currently 1,401 people hospitalized with the disease in the county, with 26% of those in the ICU, the release said.
