84% of Santa Monica residents are fully vaccinated, say city officials
About 84% of local residents are fully vaccinated, announced the City of Santa Monica this week as it extended its local emergency orders through October 31.
"Santa Monicans have done an incredible job getting vaccinated and wearing masks indoors and these actions have curbed rising cases," said Interim City Manager and Director of Emergency Services John Jalili. "As we look to the holiday season, let's keep the trend going by vaccinating, masking, and gathering safely."
With its 40th emergency supplement, the city extends provisions of its Covid-19 emergency orders that have not expired or been modified. These include: suspension of water shutoffs for nonpayment; adoption for enforcement of Los Angeles County public health orders; time limits on loud construction activities; and extensions of deadlines for planning and permit-related activities, city officials said.
Beginning October 7, Santa Monica residents, ages 12 and over, are required to present proof of full vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test at indoor mega-events involving 1,000 persons and outdoor mega-events involving at least 10,000 people, city officials said.
Patrons of bars, breweries, wineries, distilleries, nightclubs and lounges with indoor service and operations will also be required to verify their Covid-19 vaccination status for indoor entry, officials said.
