The new stay-at-home order for residents of the city of Los Angeles has roughly 10 pages detailing various exceptions. Those include: allowing malls and shops to remain open at a decreased capacity, allowing gyms to host outdoor classes, banning outdoor dining, banning gatherings with members of other households (unless at a protest or religious ceremony). — KCRWKTLA
