L.A. County Considers COVID-19 Recovery Surcharge on Dining

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Los Angeles County is considering allowing restaurants, breweries and wineries in unincorporated areas of the county to add a "COVID-19 recovery fee'' to bills for dine-in customers.

Supervisor Hilda Solis suggested that the Department of Consumer and Business Affairs work with county counsel and labor and business representatives to see whether such a charge is feasible and report back to the board on Nov. 24.

The fee would not apply to take-out or delivery orders and would be clearly disclosed as a surcharge.
