New Southern California “Stay at Home” Order: What You Need to Know
On December 6, 2020, the California Department of Public Health placed the Southern California Region -- which includes Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Diego Counties -- under a Regional Stay at Home Order as a result of ICU capacity in the region dropping below 15%. This Order, which shutters bars, restaurants (except for take-out and delivery) and personal care services, also impacts non-essential offices which were ordered to cease indoor operations immediately.
Exceptions. The new order provides exceptions permitting businesses to conduct Minimum Basic Operations including: inventory; security; custodial services; payroll and employee benefits processing; and any reasonable activity designed to maximize its employees ability to work remotely from their homes. However, non-essential offices must have their doors closed and locked to the public at all times and must also post a notice on their door that states they are closed to the public. In advance of the Regional Stay At Home Order, Los Angeles County updated its office protocols (known as Appendix D) limiting non-essential offices conducting Minimum Basic Operations to 25% occupancy. The full text of Appendix D can be found here.
Impact on entertainment industry. The Regional Stay At Home Order requires that operations for music, film and television production must prepare, implement and post the required County Public Health Protocol for Music, Film and Television Production -- incorporated by reference as Appendix J -- which can be found here. Music, film and television productions must also abide by applicable industry-generated protocols.
We will continue to monitor all COVID-related laws that impact businesses and provide alerts when necessary. If you have any questions about the current Regional Stay At Home Order, or other employment or entertainment law matters, please contact Tricia Legittino at (310) 579-9632 or firstname.lastname@example.org; Tiffany Caterina at (310) 579-9620 or email@example.com; or any other member of the Frankfurt Kurnit Employment Compliance, Training & Litigation Group.
