LA County Public Health Councils Report

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors continues discussions and negotiations with local stakeholders regarding the Department of Public Health proposal to establish “public health councils” within businesses across the county to monitor compliance and report code violations to stop the spread of COVID-19. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has been actively engaging with supervisor staff and stakeholders expressing extensive concern with the proposal. The Department of Public Health was asked to consult with labor organizations, worker advocates, and business community representatives to create these recommendations. The Department consulted with only 4 business representatives and 18 labor organizations, showing a clear bias. Our coalition is asking the Board of Supervisors to deny the recommendations made by the Department and work with relevant business groups to ensure all stakeholders are consulted.
