Exceptions are made for church services and protests.

Los Angeles County announced a new stay-home order Friday as coronavirus cases surge out of control in the nation’s most populous county.

The three-week order takes effect Monday. It came as the county confirmed 24 new deaths and 4,544 new cases of COVID-19. The five-day average of new cases was 4,751.

Nearly 2,000 people in the county are hospitalized.


However, exceptions are made for church services and protests, “which are constitutionally protected rights,” the county Department of Public Health said in a statement.

Businesses are allowed to remain open but with limited capacity, and the same is true of nail salons and other personal care services.

Beaches, trails, and parks also will remain open, with safety requirements.

    And I’m sure the “my rights” Trumpy bunch will be displeased. Tough. I still say if they hadn’t been so selfish and followed the CDC guidelines for the last several months, we would be closer to back to normal by now.

    Well, I guess LA felt it had to exempt religious services because of that idiotic Supreme Court ruling, but I agree the exemptions make no sense.
