Pasadena steps up enforcement of COVID-19 restrictions – Los Angeles Times

Health inspectors conducted about 60 site visits Wednesday and Thursday, and the majority of restaurants — more than 40 — were violating the rules, she said.

“The most common violations included no face shields, tables not properly distanced and enclosed dining areas,” she said.

On Friday, follow-up inspections found that five of the restaurants had not taken basic steps to correct the violations, and those locations were shut down for in-person dining and takeout and delivery services, Derderian said. The restaurants must go through a hearing and re-inspection before they can reopen, a process that is expected to take several days, she said.

“Each restaurant probably has 30 to 40 employees that are now affected by this, so it impacts many by not abiding by the simple regulations,” Derderian said.
