As a preventative measure for the spread of coronavirus, Mayor Eric Garcetti took to Facebook Live to announce that he has now taken executive action to close ALL movie theaters, bars, nightclubs, entertainment venues and gyms until March 31. Restaurants will remain open but will only provide takeout and delivery. However grocery stores, food banks and pharmacies will remain open. The restrictions went into effect Sunday at midnight.
As a reminder, please stay home when sick, wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. Engage in social distancing for the health of your neighbors and community.
