To properly respond to the consequences of COVID-19, the City Manager proclaimed the existence of a local emergency in the City of Gardena on Monday, March 16, 2020. The City Council ratified the proclamation on Thursday, March 19, 2020.
Gardena Reopening Guildelines
The City of Gardena has developed Reopening Guidelines that align with State and LA County regulations to provide our community with a comprehensive framework to steadily reopen with necessary adaptations.
On March 5, 2021, the State added a vaccine equity metric to the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. LA County is now in the least restrictive Yellow Tier, allowing additional business sectors to reopen indoor operations or increase operational capacity.
The Health Officer Order has been revised and is effective May 6, 2021. For more details, please visit the Business Resource Portal.
