Los Angeles Apparel’s Factory Shut After 300 Workers Contract Coronavirus

Clothing maker Los Angeles Apparel is under orders to stay closed following an outbreak of the coronavirus that public health officials say killed four of the garment manufacturer’s workers and infected more than 300 others. The closure order last Friday comes as California battles a new wave of infections, with Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday announcing statewide closures of restaurants, bars, movie theaters, museums, and other establishments that host patrons indoors. Public health officials said they initially shut down operations at the Los Angeles factory owned by Dov Charney on June 27 after finding what they called “flagrant violations of mandatory public health infection control orders.” See more at CBS News.
