L.A. readies for 10 p.m.-6 a.m. curfew

A sign posted reads "Covid-19 Update. Effective Immediately. No Cash Accepted at Exits," at a Los Angeles International Airport main parking lot in Los Angeles, Friday, Nov. 13, 2020.

Los Angeles County has updated its restrictions on businesses and is preparing to enact a mandatory curfew for all but essential workers if coronavirus cases keep rising.

The county, which has 10 million residents — about a quarter of the state’s total population — has seen daily cases more than double in the last two weeks. As a result, it ordered non-essential retail businesses to limit indoor capacity to 25% and restaurants to 50% capacity outdoors. In addition, all such businesses must close by 10 p.m., effective Friday.
