The people of Los Angeles County will have to remain on lockdown for at least another month … county officials have extended an order until May 15.
L.A. County’s public health director, Barbara Ferrer, made the announcement Friday during a press conference. The “Safer-at-Home” initiative has closed public beaches, most parks and hiking trails, and limits movement to essential places like the grocery store or doctor’s offices.
Angelinos have seen a drastic change when out in public … most people wear masks or some sort of face-covering device … and social distancing signs are posted in grocery store checkout lines.
The initiative has obviously been a major hit to the restaurants and local businesses, though many have launched carry-out food programs to continue some sort of revenue stream.
The order had originally only been in place until April 19, but at the time, it was subject to extension.
