LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Los Angeles International Airport announced it will begin requiring face coverings for anyone at LAX starting Monday.

The airport said the face coverings can include bandanas, scarves, T-shirts or other fabric materials held in place.

The new requirement came hours after L.A. County officials laid out the first steps toward easing stay-at-home orders that have been credited with slowing the spread of the coronavirus in the region.
