YOUR SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY.

Effective April 1, 2022, per the most recent ordinance by the LA County Department of Public Health (LACDPH), masks are no longer required for “mega” events – those with 1,000 or more visitors. In accordance with LACDPH, we still strongly recommend all visitors to continue wearing masks while indoors and ask that individual choices are respected.
