Hilda Solis, chairwoman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, issued an executive order on Aug. 4 requiring the county’s 110,000 employees to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 with exemptions for medical and religious reasons. The Board of Supervisors ratified her order six days later, making it official county policy. However, thousands of county employees refused to comply with the policy with five of them joining together to sue the Board.
