Los Angeles residents and visitors who will go to indoor restaurants, gyms, entertainment and recreational facilities, personal care establishments, and some city buildings are now required to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.
Thanks to Joe’s tyrannical mandates, No wonder, LA’s vaccine mandate has been labeled one of the strictest in the country so far.
Starting Nov. 4, guests 12 and older, as well as employees of the establishments, will be required to show proof of vaccination.
Here’s what the city Mayor Eric Garcetti said on Wednesday after signing the rule into law:
“Vaccinating more Angelenos is our only way out of this pandemic, and we must do everything in our power to keep pushing those numbers up. These new rules will encourage more people to get the shot, and make businesses safer for workers and customers.”
Businesses that fail to abide by the mandate can be issued citations and face fines of $1,000 or more for subsequent offenses. The Los Angeles vaccine mandate is stricter than the mandate implemented in the county, leading to confusion among business leaders, “There’s a tremendous lack of clarity,” said Sarah Wiltfong, senior policy manager at the Los Angeles County Business Federation.
For example, most retail shops are exempt. “But shopping malls and shopping centers are included, which of course includes retail shops,” she said.
It’s all part of Biden’s vaccine mandates, now LA must abide by it otherwise Joe will get angry – In fact, Joe is requiring employees of all businesses with more than 100 employees to show proof of vaccination.
Meanwhile, Biden’s mandate was halted in a federal court due to “grave statutory and constitutional issues”. 27 states have sued the Biden administration in federal court to fight the mandate, including three Democratic states.
The Democratic Governor of Kansas, Laura Kelly, came out against Biden’s vaccine mandate publicly, saying “Yesterday, I reviewed the new vaccine mandate from the Biden Administration. While I appreciate the intention to keep people safe, a goal I share, I don’t believe this directive is the correct, or the most effective, solution for Kansas,”.
Some states have passed bills banning vaccine mandates in local jurisdictions, including a recently signed bill by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine banning vaccine mandates in public schools. Workers across the country have revolted against vaccine mandates, with the mandates being a leading cause for various workers strikes and creating staffing shortages in critical industries.
