Face masks will remain mandatory in Los Angeles County courthouses
Face masks will remain mandatory in all Los Angeles County courthouses, although the county is easing the mandate for an indoor mask from tomorrow for those vaccinated against COVID-19, court officials said today.
According to the court, all people over the age of 2 and regardless of their vaccination status will continue to be required to wear face masks over their noses and mouths while in the court building.
“While there are encouraging signs that the winter jump has subsided with the reduction of Omicron cases, positive tests and hospitalizations, the court will remain vigilant in ensuring safe access to justice in the country’s largest trial,” said presiding judge Eric K. Taylor in a statement.
“When you come to our courtrooms, you have to wear a face mask. However, the court did not require the public to provide evidence of vaccination or a negative test of access to justice. The order includes court clerks and court clerks.
Judicial officials have called on people with disabilities who are not allowed to wear face masks to seek accommodation under California court rules before appearing or being appointed to court.
