Los Angeles businesses must adhere to an emergency order issued by Mayor Eric Garcetti regarding providing face coverings. Effective April 16, Mayor Garcetti expanded an April 7, 2020, emergency order requiring employers to provide certain essential workers with nonmedical-grade face coverings to wear while performing their work.

The expanded order identifies certain businesses that ship or deliver goods, “including but not limited to Amazon, Caviar, Doordash, GrubHub, Instacart, Lyft, PostMates, Shipt, and Uber,” and requires that they “must provide drivers with nonmedical-grade face covering and hand sanitizing agents, and do so at the expense of the business.”

The April 16 order also required an owner, manager, or operator of any business performing essential activities as defined in the order to prepare and post a Social Distancing Protocol for each of the business’ Los Angeles facilities by 11:59 a.m. on April 15,. The Social Distancing Protocol must mirror in material respects the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Social Distancing Protocol.
