The Latest on County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Order Regarding Restaurants, Breweries and Wineries

Due to the continued increasing spread of COVID-19, and in an effort to stop the surge to protect the most vulnerable members of our community, County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health has updated the Health Order protocol for restaurants, breweries, and wineries. Effective November 25, 2020, restaurants are to provide food and beverage services via delivery, drive-thru, and carry-out ONLY. Any service of food or beverages that involves a customer sitting or remaining onsite indoors or outdoors to consume food or beverages is prohibited. The updated Health Order is to be implemented, at minimum, until December 17, 2020. The Paramount Al Fresco program will be temporarily suspended while the Health Order is in place. Paramount restaurants will still be open for delivery, drive-thru, and carry-out, if available.

Delivery, Drive-thru, and Takeout Options

While the current County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Order prohibits indoor and outdoor dining at restaurants, many food establishments in Paramount are still offering delivery, drive-thru, and takeout options. For a list of those, please click below:
