 LA County will soon require proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test at bars, wineries, breweries, nightclubs, and lounges. LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said the official order will go into effect in early October. So far, about two-thirds of LA County residents have at least one shot.

Some prominent conservative media figures have been touting ivermectin — medicine primarily used to treat parasites, especially in livestock — as a treatment for COVID-19. But no scientific evidence supports this. 

Press Play also looks at the future of the Republican Party in California, Vermont’s attempt to lure in a new workforce by paying people $7500 to move there, and the end of the once-complimentary term “girlboss.”
