County Offers School Waivers (TK-2); Reopens Breweries, Wineries, & Cardrooms

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted on Tuesday to begin offering waivers for up to 30 schools per week to begin opening  Transitional Kindergarten through 2nd-grade instruction. The waivers will still need to be approved by the state. For the latest information regarding Arcadia school openings, please visit the Arcadia Unified School District website at ausd.net.

In addition, the Board voted to allow breweries and wineries to open outdoors beginning in a week, with limitations on operating hours and requiring reservations.  Card rooms will be allowed to open outdoors as well but without food or beverage service at tables.

Los Angeles County is still listed in the state's highest-risk category for COVID-19 under its four-tier economic recovery roadmap. The County is in the "purple'' tier, signifying continued widespread transmission of the virus locally. Last week, the county met both of the state's criteria for advancing to the next stage, the "red" tier, which would loosen restrictions on more businesses, allowing operations including movie theaters and churches to open at limited capacity.

Counties, however, must meet the criteria for two consecutive weeks before officially moving up in the state's chart. The state updates the chart every Tuesday, and the latest update showed that Los Angeles County's average rate of new cases per 100,000 residents exceeds the state's threshold to move into the red Tier 2.

For the lastest on the County's progress in moving through the tiers, please visit covid19.ca.gov.
