“The health and safety of our visitors and staff remains our number one priority,” according to a joint statement from the museums. “While Los Angeles is moving closer to community immunity, we cannot forget our vulnerable populations, including our youngest visitors — those 11 and under — who are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine.
“It is important to us not only to help keep our community safe, but to help ensure that parents feel safe bringing their children to our museums. For this reason, we join together in continuing to require all visitors ages 2 and up — vaccinated or not — wear masks at all times when indoors.”MORE NEWS: Six Flags To Give Away 50K Free Tickets To Those Who Get COVID Vaccine

Baltimore County Public Schools To Require Masking For Students, Staff & Visitors
TOWSON, Md. (WJZ) — Baltimore County Public Schools announced that they will require masking for students, staff and visitors for the 2021-2022 school year. The order for masks to be worn on busses will also continue.
“Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our students, families, and employees,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams. “Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to impact our community. Universal masking is an important part of our multifaceted approach to mitigate the spread of COVID while keeping schools open for in-person learning.”
“I fully support Dr. Williams’ decision to protect Team BCPS students, staff, and visitors by adopting the latest mask recommendations from the CDC,” said Makeda Scott, chair of the Board of Education of Baltimore County. “As this crisis evolves, what matters most is that we continue to prioritize in-person learning by providing appropriate health and safety guidelines that respond to the latest conditions. I also join leaders across the county in encouraging all citizens aged 12 and over to get vaccinated as soon as possible.”
