Los Angeles County shut down outdoor dining in restaurants effective Wed., Nov 25 at 10 p.m., after the five-day average of COVID-19 cases grew to more than 4,000, the Los Angeles County Public Health DepartmentĀ confirmed on Sunday. Restaurants, bars, breweries and wineries in Los Angeles can now only offer takeout, delivery and drive-thru service for at least the next three weeks, while indoor dining rooms never reopened in the county during the coronavirus crisis.

The news broke the week after the county released new thresholds for additional restrictions that officials had said would go into effect if the five-day average peaked past 4,000 cases or more and hospitalizations at 1,750 or more per day. Currently, the five-day average is 4,097 and the Los Angeles County Public Health Department confirmed that the county had nine new deaths and 2,718 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday.
