Update 3/19 5:30 p.m.: Per the Safer at Home emergency order announced by Mayor Eric Garcetti, all L.A. residents should "stay inside their homes and limit non-essential movement." All non-essential businesses, indoor malls, playgrounds, and shopping centers are among those that must close.
Update 4/08: This story was updated with the most recent information from retail centers and L.A. County's safety orders.
It's official: Yes, you are allowed to emerge out of self-isolation and into the sunlight, so long as you're confirmed healthy and keep a distance of six feet from others. But don't start planning a hiking party just yet. Los Angeles County Health officials say that outdoor group activities such as "biking and running are great as long as not in a group where there is close contact," according to the L.A. Times, while the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that organizations cancel gatherings of 10 more (especially if they affect high-risk populations).
Per L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti's March 15 emergency order, all restaurants within the city are only permitted to offer take-out and delivery until March 31. All recreational and entertainment venues – including movie theatres, bowling alleys, bars, clubs, and fitness centers — are also temporarily closed.
Social distancing is not just about protecting yourself, it's about being a good neighbor. It's a duty to your fellow Angelenos. You may be healthy, but your grandmother may be vulnerable, your roommate with that medical condition may be vulnerable.— Mayor Eric Garcetti (@MayorOfLA) March 15, 2020

On March 19, all "non-essential businesses" (excluding grocery stores, pharmacies, nurseries, and more) were also ordered to close. As of April 7, L.A. County Public Health officials are urging all residents to stay home for the week and avoid in-person grocery shopping. And effective midnight Friday, April 10, all residents should wear some type of face mask or covering when in public.
For now, cabin-fevered Angelenos who really must venture out of the house are in luck: Some open-air developments are offering an al fresco respite, with plenty of hand sanitizer stations and frequent cleanings, of course. Below, we've gathered a status update on popular L.A. and Orange County shopping haunts and lifestyle centers, where some restaurants and coffee shops are still open for take-out and we'll be updating this list as soon as any centers change their hours.
Read on below, and check back often as we'll update this list as we receive new details on business hours.
Editor's note: The coronavirus news cycle is ever-changing and the response efforts continue to evolve.

COVID-19 can live on some surfaces for up to 72 hours, especially hard, nonporous ones like metal and hard plastic. In addition to washing your hands and avoiding touching your face, keep hard "high-touch" surfaces clean and disinfected. #COVID-19 https://t.co/numbyNbAbN pic.twitter.com/a7vOqrHcT5— LA Public Health (@lapublichealth) March 18, 2020
