LA Sheriff Villanueva announced he will not be enforcing a vaccine mandate.
He said the issue has become so politicized that some of his employees would rather be fired than get the vaccine.
He warned that he could lose 5% to 10% of his workforce overnight if he enforced a vaccine mandate.

This comes after the LA City Council passed one of the strictest vaccine mandates in the country.
On Wednesday, the Los Angeles City Council passed an ordinance that would require customers to show proof of vaccination before entering venues such as indoor restaurants, salons and gyms.
The mandate is one of the strictest passed in the country thus far amid a pandemic that continues to hit unvaccinated areas of the U.S. particularly hard.
The ordinance does not apply to pharmacies and grocery stores, and is expected to go into effect on Nov. 4. Exceptions will be made for those who have a medical reason not to get the shot and for those with a “sincerely held religious belief.”
