It’s a midterm miracle!
The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday voted unanimously to end the vaccine passport system for indoor businesses.
The City Attorney still has to draft an ordinance and send it back to the City Council for approval, KTLA reported.
The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to remove the requirement for indoor businesses to verify customers’ COVID-19 vaccination status.
But the vote does not make the move final, as an ordinance will have to be drafted by the city attorney and returned to the City Council for a final approval. A timeline for when that will take place was not immediately available.
Once approved, businesses and establishments such as restaurants, bars, gyms and movie theaters will not have to check their indoor patrons for proof of vaccination.
Even if the final ordinance is approved, vaccination verification will still be required at indoor mega events with 1,000 or more attendees, like concerts or games, since that is still required by L.A. County.
