The City will present a webinar on Temporary Outdoor Expansion Permits on Tuesday, June 9, 2020 at 2 p.m. The webinar is in response to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s revised Health Officer Order on May 29, 2020, which allows for indoor dining at 60-percent capacity. West Hollywood City Council adopted an Urgency Ordinance to allow for temporary outdoor expansion for restaurant and food establishments to ensure social (physical) distancing.
The webinar will cover the application process and required documents to obtaining a Temporary Outdoor Expansion Permit. City staff will be available to answer technical assistance questions and provide information about resources for businesses to safely expand operations into the public right-of-way and/or adjacent or nearby private properties to expand business operations on sidewalks, on-street parking spaces, and off-street parking lots.

The City of West Hollywood has declared a local emergency in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. While Los Angeles County is allowing for a phased reopening of some businesses and activities, coronavirus transmission and COVID-19 disease remain a serious risk.
The City urges everyone to stay in place, maintain your space, and cover your face. West Hollywood residents are encouraged to remain home as much as is practical and limit close contact with others outside of a household; always use social (physical) distancing of at least six feet; and follow City requirements for the use of face coverings in public.
Public Health officials recommend cloth face coverings so that medical-grade and N95 masks may be prioritized in the supply chain for healthcare workers and first responders. Face coverings are not required for young children under two-years-old; children between two- and eight-years-old should only wear face coverings with adult supervision; and people with certain medical conditions are exempt from this requirement.
Additionally, people 65 years old or older and all people of any age with underlying health conditions should remain at home whenever possible. People in these categories should only leave their residences to seek medical care, exercise, or obtain food or other necessities.
West Hollywood City Hall is currently closed to the public and has suspended all in-person transactions. Most public City buildings, playgrounds, parks, and facilities are closed. City Hall will remain accessible for business and essential services with transactions to be conducted by phone (323) 848-6400 and via the City’s website at www.weho.org.
