Los Angeles Adds Itself to the List of Cities with a COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate, and May be One of the Most Strict
The city council of Los Angeles voted 11-2 in favor of the mandate and it will go into effect on November 6th. The city says about 80% of the population has gotten at least one shot; however, those with only one will need to have both by this date. It’s obvious that this will need to be three when boosters are enforced, and then four, etc.
Businesses will then start being fined on November 29th for not following the ordinance. A fine of $1,000 will be given for their second violation, $2,000 for their 3rd violation and $5,000 for their 4th violation. It’s not known what will happen after that. Jail time? Worse?
Some businesses will have exemptions to the vaccine mandate such as grocery stores and pharmacies. Also, the bill tries to say there are exemptions for those who have certain medical conditions or “sincere religious beliefs” but those exemptions only “allow” you to use outdoor sections of the establishment. You can then only use indoor areas after showing a negative COVID-19 test.
On top of this, vaccination proof or negative test is required for “any outdoor event with 5,000 or more people.”
Businesses the ordinance/mandate applies to include:
- Restaurants, bars, fast food establishments, coffee shops, tasting rooms, cafeterias, food courts, breweries, wineries, distilleries banquet halls and hotel ballrooms.
- Gyms and fitness venues, including recreation facilities, fitness studios (including for yoga, pilates, dance, and barre), boxing gyms, fitness boot camps and facilities that hold indoor group fitness classes.
- Entertainment and recreation venues including movie theaters, shopping centers, concert venues, performance venues, adult entertainment venues, commercial event and party venues, sports arenas, convention centers, exhibition halls, museums, malls, performing arts theaters, bowling alleys, arcades, card rooms, family entertainment centers, pool and billiard halls, play areas and game centers.
- Personal care establishments, including spas, nail/hair/tanning salons, barbershops, estheticians, skin care, tattoo shops, piercing shops and massage therapy locations, unless medically required.
Representative Mike Garcia (R) also criticized the ordinance by saying, “hospitalizations and deaths are down 45% from last month, but the city is now putting in place the most radical measures yet…”
It’s amazing just how much we were warned by Alex Jones that this was coming. Let us know how absolutely insane you think this is below.
