Per L.A. County Department of Public Health, masks must be worn at all times indoors and in NHM's outdoor Spider Pavilion. NHMLAC currently does not require visitors to show proof of vaccination. We are working through the implications of the LA City ordinance with respect to our operations. View our COVID-19 Safety Guidelines for more information.
