On September 10, 2021, the City of West Hollywood issued an Emergency Executive Order (the “Order”) implementing vaccine verification requirements for some businesses throughout the City. The West Hollywood City Council first discussed vaccine mandates for businesses in a July 21, 2021 meeting.

The Order mandates restaurants, bars, nightclubs, health and fitness facilities, and personal care establishments to require all patrons ages 18 and older to show proof that they are fully vaccinated before entering any indoor portions of a facility. Additionally, business owners are required to “ensure that all staff who routinely work onsite” provide proof of full vaccination before entering or working in any indoor portion of the facility by November 1, 2021. Customers may continue to use the outdoor portion of any of these businesses without any proof of vaccine. Businesses are required to implement the Order for customers by October 11, 2021, and are encouraged to comply as soon as possible. 

The West Hollywood City Council is scheduled to ratify the Order during its September 20, 2021. Both the County of Los Angeles and the City of Los Angeles are considering similar requirements.
