Los Angeles County officials have officially announced that all retailers can now open for curbside pickup.
L.A. County Public Health Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer reported that two additional categories of businesses deemed low risk can reopen immediately. The first category applied to retailers, except for those located in indoor shopping centers. However, they can only reopen for curbside pickup. The second category was all manufacturing and logistics businesses that supply those lower-risk retailers.
Social distancing guidelines and face coverings will remain in effect. Customers are not allowed inside the stores. Furthermore, Ferrer reported that all tennis courts, shooting ranges, equestrian centers, bike parks, community gardens, and model airplane sites can reopen. However, basketball courts, volleyball courts, and baseball fields remain closed. County beaches opened Wednesday for active recreational use.
All this comes after the county last Friday reopened florists, car dealership showrooms, and stores that sell clothing, toys, music, sporting goods, and books for curbside pickup as part of the second phase of a five-phase reopening plan.
