BURBANK (CNS) - With Los Angeles County now in the yellow tier of the state's COVID-19 reopening blueprint, Burbank has lifted its separate face-covering order and will follow the Los Angeles County order, the city announced.
The move took effect Thursday.
The L.A. County order outlines when people can go without a mask in public -- and applies only to those who are fully vaccinated.
According to that order, those who can go without a mask may do so when outdoors, are vaccinated, and are:
- With members of their household
- With a small group of people they know are fully vaccinated
- With a small group of people who are not fully vaccinated and not at higher risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19.
There are still many requirements for wearing masks indoors and outdoors in L.A. County. Details are available on a fact sheet at http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/acd/docs/FullyVaccinatedMasks.pdf
