LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Los Angeles County is considering allowing restaurants, breweries and wineries in unincorporated areas of the county to add a “COVID-19 recovery fee” to bills of dine-in customers.
Supervisor Hilda Solis suggested that the Department of Consumer and Business Affairs work with county counsel and labor and business representatives to see whether such a charge is feasible.
The department would then report back to the board on Nov. 24.
The fee would not apply to take-out or delivery orders and would be clearly disclosed as a surcharge.
