Throughout the response to the COVID-19 crisis, City, County and State governments have worked together to safeguard the lives and livelihoods of Angelenos and all Californians. Our goal is to help workers and businesses take responsible steps toward resuming work, serving customers and rebuilding our economy.
After the State of California set minimum standards for local jurisdictions, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued safety protocols that are required for all businesses operating within the City of Los Angeles.
The County’s required protocols are available for download below. Businesses should follow these protocols and directives.
Additionally, the City of Los Angeles developed toolkits to support businesses operating safely, also provided below.
Sample Signage for Businesses Operating
The below sample signage is available for businesses to print and post at their respective establishments, or model their own signage after. Communication to patrons and visitors will be key in setting expectations and helping to keep everyone safe. At a minimum, all businesses approved to resume operations should have signs reminding patrons to observe social distancing and face covering requirements.
General signs for businesses including 6-foot social distancing reminders, symptoms to watch for, hygiene reminders, and reminders to utilize face coverings;
Signage for office buildings including elevator limitations, reminders to utilize web conferencing where possible, and other social distancing and hygiene reminders;
Signage for retail, grocers, and restaurants that include social distancing and washing of high-touch areas;
