As yellow tier arrives, some LA County coronavirus rules remain tougher than state’s

Striding into the least-restrictive yellow tier of the state’s economic-reopening blueprint, Los Angeles County will deploy its loosest business restrictions since the pandemic began on Thursday, May 6.

Stopping evictions is not enough. “For many landlords,” notes the United Way, “the order created a financial burden of housing renters with no payments,” and without income, they ha...

Coronavirus: Infection-control measures are continuing to pay off in LA County

Los Angeles County’s average daily rate of new COVID-19 cases fell again on Tuesday, April 20, but still remained too high to allow a move to the least-restrictive yellow tier of the state’s economic reopening blueprint.
