Yesterday, the City of Los Angeles issued a modified stay-at-home order that parallels Los Angeles County’s new rules, which went into effect on Monday.

Yet many LA County residents still have questions about what exactly the county order entails. Outdoor dining has closed in much of the county, although there are notable holdouts, including the City of Pasadena. It also calls for residents to not gather with people outside their household. Some residents are frustrated by what they feel are contradictions in the order. For example, while playgrounds have been ordered to close, shopping malls (which are contending with the busiest shopping season of the year) have not. California is also reportedly considering a statewide shutdown, similar to what the state saw in March, which could further impact the restrictions in LA County and neighboring counties.
