As more businesses and recreational amenities begin to reopen across Los Angeles County, health officials on Wednesday are urging the public to adhere to health and safety protocols to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Indoor shopping malls were allowed to open Wednesday at 25% maximum occupancy, but all food courts and common areas have to remain closed.

Officials announced last week that the county would allow some sectors to reopen for indoor settings at reduced capacity. Nail salons reopened first last Thursday at limited capacity, and cardrooms were allowed to resume operations Monday for outdoor gaming only and without serving food and beverages.

The region, however, remains in the state’s most restrictive purple tier, or widespread risk.

As of Tuesday, the county had a total of 275,856 cases and 6,681 deaths.
