Pursuant to United States District Court General Order 21-08, all individuals seeking entry to, or occupying, all divisions of the Bankruptcy Court must abide by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s most recent guidance regarding face coverings. Local COVID-19 Community Levels for each county as determined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention govern the requirements for wearing face coverings in the Court. Face coverings are optional for each division located in a county with a “Low” or “Medium” Community Level as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and mandatory for each division located in a county with a “High” Community Level.
Accordingly, per General Order 21-08, given the current high COVID-19 community levels and CDC guidance, face coverings should be worn in the respective divisions of the Court:
- Los Angeles Division and San Fernando Valley Division (Los Angeles County)
- Northern Division (Ventura County)
- Riverside Division (Riverside County)
- Santa Ana Division (Orange County)
These face covering policies are subject to change depending on the COVID-19 community level of the county in which the division is located or by further order of the Court.
