According to a news report from NBC Los Angeles on July 1, garment manufacturer LA Apparel confirms it was shut down by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health after testing showed more than 100 workers tested positive for COVID-19.
For the past three months, the company has focused much of its manufacturing on cloth face coverings and other garments for protection against the virus. NBCLA visited one of the plants in March, shortly after LA Apparel shifted production to PPE items. The news station notes, “No one was seen without face covering, and most if not all workers appeared to be several feet apart.”
The closure affects three plants, all located in South Los Angeles on East 59th Street, where a total of 151 employees tested positive, according to Public Health data posted online.
LA Apparel founder Dov Charney told NBCLA the shutdown affects 2,000 workers and that the company is working to complete another round of testing as soon as this week.

Aaron: Since we’re recording this podcast as a live event, let’s talk live marketing. Why should I “Go Live” rather than just post a video that is edited and looks better?
Terry: When should I “Go Live”?
Aaron: How long should a “Live” be? What’s too long for anyone to be expected to tune in? It’s a short attention span world, it seems.
Terry: Where should I “Go Live”? Looks like several options out there.
Aaron: What kind of live content should our listeners be focused on?
Terry: Presentation skills… not everyone has them. Should we ever consider outside presenters? Or, do people expect a presentation to be less “professional” in an internet world? Is it more about content than presentation?
Aaron: Julie, where can our listeners reach out to you?
