The city of Los Angeles in the USA has announced that groups of under 300 can now gather again for meetings.
The city is reopening museums, indoor dining and outdoor live events, including spectator sport, with capacity control. This has now extended to meetings.
Los Angeles has also announced an initiative to verify the health security of all its hotels, alongside digital health company Sharecare and Forbes Travel Guide.
This verification process covers over 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols. These include cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees.
The city is making preparations for a big return in 2021, with a number of new event venues and hotels opening such as the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures and SoFi Stadium.
Darren K Green, SVP of sales and services for Los Angeles Tourism, commented: “Our hotels and venues have been preparing for this moment for a year and have best-in-class safety protocols and procedures in place. Los Angeles continues to be deliberate in its reopening, placing the highest priority on public health. We thank L.A. County Public Health officials for their collaboration.”
