Los Angeles County officials reinstated an indoor mask mandate regardless of vaccination status on July 17, a move designed to curb rising COVID-19 cases in the county that has delivered another bump in the road to recovery for businesses.  

The mask mandate comes only about a month after L.A. County was reveling in low COVID-19 cases and eased public health policies that allowed businesses to operate more freely. The latest change marks another period of stop-and-go, particularly for the retail sector.
