Los Angeles considers ending vaccine verification mandate

President Nury Martinez, council president, proposed that vaccination verifications be made voluntary in establishments such as bars, restaurants, gyms, and personal care businesses.

To pass the measure, it must have at least 12 votes. It could be implemented quickly if it meets the "urgency threshold" of council. The measure could also be approved by a simple majority, but it would not take effect until several weeks after that.

Last week, the council voted 13-1 in favor of the measure. However, it still needed a unanimous vote, so a second vote was necessary.

Mike Bonin, a Councilman, stated that he voted against the lifting of the requirement due to concerns about the spread and expansion of new viruses.

It feels like we are out of the woods. It's almost like everything is going back to normal. Bonin stated that there are new varieties and new strains of cannabis all the time, but that he hoped Bonin was wrong.

Los Angeles County has seen a decline in COVID-19, but public health officials reported an increase in cases of the more serious BA.2 subvariant.
