LA County Might Really Return to Indoor Dining Next Week. Here’s How That’s Possible


A new vaccine redistribution project from state officials will, when completed, likely push many Southern California counties into the less restrictive red tier for reopening — and it could come as soon as Tuesday night.

As has been at worst hinted at repeatedly by local public officials over the past few days, it seems increasingly likely that Los Angeles County and nearby areas across Southern California will be able to move into a less restrictive lockdown tier — from purple, the most restrictive tier, to red — soon, and potentially as quickly as next week. The move would bring about massive changes to daily life for consumers, workers, and small business owners almost immediately, with openings for gyms, movie theaters, and some indoor dining (albeit all at limited capacity). Here’s what we know.

Earlier this week, Los Angeles city Mayor Eric Garcetti told reporters that greater LA is “on the verge” of moving to the red tier “as soon as this coming week,” which would allow for indoor dining. “Hope is on the horizon,” he added in the news report, which aired on ABC7. Similarly, yesterday LA County Public Health Director said that “it is very possible that we will enter the red tier as early as next week,” according to KNX reporter Claudia Peschiutta, though Dr. Ferrer later clarified (when asked) that she meant that LA County could hit the necessary data thresholds to move, not that the move would actually happen.
