“The health and safety of our visitors and staff remains our number one priority,” according to a joint statement from the museums. “While Los Angeles is moving closer to community immunity, we cannot forget our vulnerable populations, including our youngest visitors — those 11 and under — who are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine.
“It is important to us not only to help keep our community safe, but to help ensure that parents feel safe bringing their children to our museums. For this reason, we join together in continuing to require all visitors ages 2 and up — vaccinated or not — wear masks at all times when indoors.”MORE NEWS: Joseph Jimenez Charged With Murder, Attempted Murder In Corona Movie Theater Shooting
