The problem with Los Angeles County’s mask mandate

“We believe in science,” Ross O’Carroll, owner and manager of the Lash Social, a downtown Los Angeles bar and performance space, told me about his recent decision to demand all potential customers show proof of vaccination status to gain entry. (He’ll also accept a recent negative covid test.) “We see it as not contributing to the overall spread and putting our industry at risk of another shutdown.” Footsies, another downtown bar, is taking the same tack, and posted on its Instagram account, “Your safety and our safety is our priority as we navigate through this challenging time.”
