Face Coverings are Mandatory in Culver City
Face Coverings While Exercising
Many people have asked if they need to wear a cloth face covering while exercising (e.g., walking, biking, jogging) outdoors. Here are the short answers:
- yes, when you are near others (anywhere close to 6 feet) and
- no, when there is no one around you.
County Public Health does not recommend wearing a covering over your nose and mouth when doing high intensity training, especially in the heat, because it is harder to breathe. If you’re doing any type of high intensity training (e.g., marathon training), try to find a place where you will not be around other people to minimize the amount of time you need to cover your mouth and nose.
Face Coverings for Children
Children under the age of 2 should NOT wear cloth face coverings. Those between the ages of 2-8 should use them under adult supervision to ensure that the child can breath safely and to avoid choking or suffocation. Children with breathing problems should not wear a face covering.
How to Manage Patrons and Visitors Who Refuse to Wear Face Coverings
As businesses open, and more individuals venture back into public places, it is very important that everyone continue to comply with physical distancing requirements and infection control practices such as the use of face coverings.
Unfortunately, some businesses or venues may be placed in the difficult position of managing customers or visitors who knowingly or unknowingly do not adhere to the rules. Los Angeles County has prepared a guidance document to provide businesses with tools for preparing for potential incidents with non-compliant individuals.
