    LA County’s Latest Lockdown Order Exempts Protests, Religious Services

    Los Angeles County’s Friday coronavirus order exempts protests and religious services as cases rise in the densely populated area.

    The temporary order, which is set to last three weeks, bars all public and private gatherings with individuals outside of one’s own household, but allows the “constitutionally protected rights” to protest and attend religious service, according to KTLA. The mandate also slashes the allowed occupancy of essential retail, non-essential retail, personal care facilities, libraries, outdoor gyms, museums, aquariums, recreational facilities and other businesses, the local outlet reported.

    “We know we are asking a lot from so many who have been sacrificing for months on end and we hope that L.A. County residents continue following Public Health safety measures that we know can slow the spread,” Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer told KTLA.

    “Acting with collective urgency right now is essential if we want to put a stop to this surge,” she continued. “Please remain home as much as possible and do not gather with others not in your household for the next three weeks.”

    Schools and day camps are also mandated to close if they have more than three COVID-19 cases, and gatherings at playgrounds, card rooms and outdoor dining restaurants have been banned altogether, according to KTLA. Outdoor activity participants are required to masked and must all be part of the same household,.

    Thousands of Los Angeles residents gathered en masse to celebrate Joe Biden’s projection to win the presidency earlier in November, according to CBSLA. The rally followed months of nationwide racial equity protests and riots after George Floyd died in May.

    The Friday order comes two days after the Supreme Court ruled that Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s statewide restrictions on religious services were “discriminatory” and violated the First Amendment.
