Los Angeles County is re-implementing a mandate requiring residents to wear masks while indoors, regardless of vaccination as the county has continued to see an increase in COVID-19 transmission, county health officials said Thursday.

The new masking order goes into effect 11:59 p.m. on Saturday.

“We’re not where we need to be for the millions at risk of infection here in Los Angeles County, and waiting to do something will be too late, given what we’re seeing,” L.A. County Health Officer Dr. Muntu Davis said in a briefing with reporters.

The county recorded 1,537 new coronavirus cases Thursday, a 83% increase over the last week, according to Davis. It’s the seventh consecutive day where more than 1,000 new cases were reported in the county.
