LA County business owners, employees cautiously optimistic as COVID-19 restrictions largely end today – Daily News
Life is returning, for the most part, to pre-pandemic normalcy in Los Angeles County and across California — and folks are feeling a mix of apprehension and excitement about it.
All but a few of the state’s coronavirus-induced restrictions, which have limited indoor capacity in businesses and required residents to wear masks and keep a safe distance from those outside their household, lifted Tuesday, June 15.
And while Southland officials say they are optimistic about what it means for the local economy, some business owners and employees have been more cautious about the prospect, after more than a year of ever-changing regulations amid the threat of the coronavirus.
Specifically, capacity restrictions have vanished, meaning amusement parks, restaurants, bars, gyms, bowling alleys, skating rinks, convention centers and more can welcome the same number of customers inside as they did before the public health crisis.
