In LA County as of today, people must show proof of full vaccination when they enter a bar, nightclub or brewery. Within the City of LA starting November 8, people will have to show their vaccine cards at most public places, including restaurants, movie theaters, museums, gyms, and hair salons. On a national level, January 4, 2022 is the deadline for all U.S. companies with 100 or more employees to ensure that their workforces are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or can show a negative test once a week. KCRW gives an explainer of the different mandates.
