LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Most COVID-19 restrictions were lifted today across California, but face coverings will still be required for people visiting a trio of museums in Exposition Park.
The California African American Museum, California Science Center and Natural History Museum will still require masks, regardless of visitors' vaccination status. State rules allow businesses and entertainment venues to decide on mask-wearing policies.
“The health and safety of our visitors and staff remains our number one priority,'' according to a joint statement from the museums. “While Los Angeles is moving closer to community immunity, we cannot forget our vulnerable populations, including our youngest visitors -- those 11 and under -- who are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine.
“It is important to us not only to help keep our community safe, but to help ensure that parents feel safe bringing their children to our museums. For this reason, we join together in continuing to require all visitors ages 2 and up -- vaccinated or not -- wear masks at all times when indoors.''
