VACCINATED-ONLY L.A. BARS
HAPPY HOUR JUST GOT SAFER
With local COVID-19 cases on the rise again, and the Delta variant running rampant throughout the country, a growing number of L.A. bars are now requiring proof of vaccination in order to get inside and drink. And I say more power to ‘em.
So, the next time you head to your local watering hole, make sure you have your ID in hand as well as proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test within the last 72 hours. Personally, I hope the number of vaccinated-only bars grows in order to prevent the spread of COVID and to ensure we avoid another lockdown.
According to the L.A. County health department, the increase in coronavirus cases is being propelled almost exclusively by unvaccinated people. Unvaccinated people account for more than 99% of all COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths as of July 12.
“This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” Governor Gavin Newsom said. “And so, if you care about getting back to normalcy once and for all, please get vaccinated.”
“We have the tools to end this epidemic,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said of vaccinations. “It is up to us to utilize those tools to their maximum.”
For now, happy hour at a growing number of L.A. bars just got safer. Other businesses should step up and do the same.
