For Immediate Release:

September 21, 2021

Indoor Large Events Required to Verify Vaccination or Negative Test for Entry - 32 New Deaths and 1,238 New Confirmed Cases of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County

As of September 20, the State requires that all attendees at indoor mega events show proof of full vaccination or a negative test result prior to entry. Self-attestation can no longer be used to verify an attendee's status as fully vaccinated or as proof of a negative COVID-19 test result.

Indoor mega events are events with 1,000 or more attendees indoors and include, conventions, conferences, expos, concerts, shows, nightclubs, sporting events, live entertainment, and festivals.

Acceptable proof of vaccination status includes a photo identification with any one of the following:

The vaccination proof should include the person’s name, type of COVID-19 vaccine, and the date of the doses administered. The person can show the vaccination card, a photo of the card as a separate document, or a photo of the card stored on a phone or electronic device.

Acceptable proof of a negative test includes a photo identification with testing results that must include the person’s name, type of COVID-19 viral test performed, and negative test result. The date when the COVID-19 test was taken must be within the 72 hours prior to the event. The test results can be a printed copy or on a phone, including an email or text message results from the test provider or laboratory.

Today, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) confirms 32 new deaths and 1,238 new cases of COVID-19. Of the 32 new deaths reported today, nine people who passed away were over the age of 80, nine people who died were between the ages of 65 and 79, 10 people who died were between the ages of 50 and 64, and two people who died were between the ages of 30 and 49. Two deaths were reported by the City of Long Beach. To date, Public Health identified 1,446,348 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County and a total of 25,870 deaths.

There are 1,034 people with COVID-19 currently hospitalized and 30% of these people are in the ICU. Testing results are available for nearly 8,500,000 individuals with 16% of people testing positive. Today’s test positivity rate is 1.4%.

"To everyone mourning a loved one who has passed away from COVID-19, we wish you healing and peace,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “The surge in cases we experienced this summer was driven in part, by the more infectious Delta variant and by the universal intermingling of unmasked individuals where vaccination and testing status were unknown. Safety measures at places where large crowds gather with many opportunities for intermingling such as universal masking and negative test or vaccination status verification requirements are sensible measures that lower the risk for transmission of the virus at higher risk settings. Our hope is that with full implementation of these mandates, we create conditions that don’t favor a continual cycle of surges fueled by new variants of concern.”

Public Health will host a Virtual Town Hall on COVID-19 on Thursday, September 23, at 6:00 p.m. Join the town hall to get the latest updates on COVID-19. The town hall will be streamed live on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube @lapublichealth. For more information and to submit a question, visit: TinyURL.com/LACOVIDTownHall

L.A. County continues to offer vaccines at many different sites across the county to make it as easy as possible for eligible L.A. County residents to get vaccinated. Many vaccination sites across the county, including all County-run sites, are also offering third doses of vaccine to eligible immunocompromised people.

Anyone 12 and older living or working in L.A. County can get vaccinated against COVID-19.

To find a vaccination site near you, make an appointment at vaccination sites, and much more, visit: www.VaccinateLACounty.com (English) and www.VacunateLosAngeles.com (Spanish). If you don’t have internet access, can’t use a computer, or you’re over 65, you can call 1-833-540-0473 for help finding an appointment, connecting to free transportation to and from a vaccination site, or scheduling a home-visit if you are homebound. Vaccinations are always free and open to eligible residents and workers regardless of immigration status.
