This afternoon, Governor Gavin Newsom announced new regulations affecting multiple sectors. Due to rising cases of COVID-19, the following business types in Los Angeles County, including Long Beach, must close indoor operations per order of the State of California. There is no sunset date for these regulations as of yet.

  • Fitness Centers
  • Offices for Non-Critical Sectors
  • Personal Care Services
  • Hair Salons and Barbershops
  • Malls
  • Places of worship must also cease indoor operations.

This action applies to 30 counties.

Following new statewide Health Orders, the City of Long Beach typically updates its own Health Order. DLBA will update you regarding this document when it is revised.

Additionally, the Governor is ordering the statewide closure of all indoor operations for dine-in restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos and museums, and cardrooms. Bars must close all operations. These closures were already in effect in L.A. County as of July 1. The closures were originally estimated to last at least three weeks.

DLBA will continue to provide you with news about updated regulations as they occur.
