Recovery: Bars, Winery, and Brewery Rooms

Bars, winery, and brewery rooms can resume immediately with safeguards as Los Angeles County moves forward on the Roadmap to Recovery.

Bars, Winery, and Brewery Rooms

**Bars, wineries, tasting rooms, pubs, and  breweries are ordered to close unless they offer sit down dine in services.**

Are masks required while drinking?

No, face coverings are not required while eating or drinking, but they should be on any time you are not eating or drinking.

Are temperature checks required?

Maybe. In some cases symptom checks will be conducted before you enter the establishment. Symptom checks must include coughing, shortness of breath or fever, and any other symptoms you may be experiencing.

How are glasses cleaned between users?

Stringent cleaning and disinfecting precautions are in place. Detailed information about the guidelines can be found here.

Does alcohol kill COVID-19?

No, and excessive drinking can weaken your immune system, which makes you more vulnerable to the virus.

Can I gather with my friends at the bar or winery?

No, you must only gather with members of your own household. You must maintain 6 feet of Distance from people outside your own household.

Are live bands allowed?

Not at this time.

Will wine tasting activities be the same?

Certain safety modifications will slightly change the traditional experience, such as:
● A clean glass will be provided for each tasting
● The communal spittoon will be removed, and individual, disposable cups will be provided
to each guest.
● Tours that combine people from different households will be discontinued. If tours are
provided to members of the same household, the tour guide must maintain at least six
feet of physical distance from the visitors.
