For Immediate Release:
January 11, 2022
This afternoon, a social media post from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health provided incorrect information on updates to the Health Officer Order. There are no existing or pending capacity limits at indoor and outdoor mega events in Los Angeles County.
The new modifications in the Health Officer Order simply align with the State Public Health Officer Order, changing the definition of mega event attendance thresholds; for outdoor mega events, the new attendance threshold has been lowered to 5,000 attendees, and for indoor mega events, the new threshold is 500 attendees.
We apologize for the error and any confusion this may have caused.
