Beverly Hills, CA (April 27, 2021) – This evening, the Beverly Hills City Council unanimously voted to amend a section of its ordinance regarding face covering requirements in order to align with today’s recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and soon to be adopted by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
According to the updated guidance from the CDC, fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear a mask outdoors while walking, running, hiking or biking alone, or when in small gatherings, including with members of their own households.
The CDC urges everyone, including those fully vaccinated, to continue wearing face coverings when in crowds where six-feet of distance from other persons is not possible; while attending large events and gatherings; and in indoor settings where unvaccinated people may be present.
Once the County adopts regulations in accord with the CDC guidance, those regulations will apply in Beverly Hills.
