Council Rescinds Vaccine Verification Requirements for Local Businesses
March 17, 2022
The City Council has decided to rescind the city's COVID-19 vaccine verification requirements for local food and beverage establishments, gyms and fitness venues, entertainment and recreation venues, personal care establishments and city facilities.
At its Monday night’s meeting, the panel also decided to resume in-person City Council meetings in April as the CDC now categorizes L.A. County as being at low community risk.
Vaccine verification requirements had been in place at restaurants, personal care, fitness and entertainment businesses in Culver City since November 29, 2021. The City will issue a new Supplement to Public Order revising those requirements and aligning with the LA County Health’s vaccine verification requirements. Culver City will no longer verify vaccination status at city facilities
In-person City Council meetings will resume with the upcoming Council session on April 11, said civic officials. All other Culver City commission, board, and committee meetings will also resume in-person meetings beginning with their first meeting in April. All meeting attendees will be required to wear a mask.
As a courtesy, members of the public have the option to attend City Council and Planning Commission meetings virtually, including participating in public comment, using Webex, the city's online system. However, other Culver City commission, board, and committee meetings will take place entirely in-person and participation will not be available via Webex.
Indoor masking in Culver City is now strongly recommended, but not required, for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals in public settings and businesses, except in high-risk settings where federal or state regulations continue to require masking, and at in-person City Council meetings, and in-person City Commission, Board, and Committee meetings.
Regardless of vaccination status, L.A. County Public Health strongly recommends that people continue to wear masks in all indoor public places.
