Los Angeles County entered Phase 3 of reopening businesses and recreation facilities on Friday after nearly three months of closures.

A modified health order went into effect Friday, allowing additional sectors to reopen but only if they implement protocols for infection control and distancing.

The rate of deaths in the county has started to decline, according L.A. County public health director Barbara Ferrer, but the virus remains a serious risk. On Friday, 20 new COVID-19 deaths and 1,633 new cases were reported in the county, bringing the total to 2,832 deaths and 70,476 positive cases.

“As this weekend begins, please remember that a safe recovery journey relies on every single one of us, businesses and residents,” Ferrer said, adding that people must still practice social distancing and wear face coverings when around others.
