Palmdale City Hall Remains Open by Appointment Only; Facial Coverings Required

Palmdale City Hall remains open by appointment only under the new Los Angeles County Department of Health Officer Order which has extended “Safer at Home” provisions through May 15.

The public is also required to wear a face covering to enter essential businesses. These measures take effect at midnight April 15.

Murphy. “Face coverings will be required at Palmdale City Hall and all essential businesses according to the new Order. Palmdale cares about the health and wellness of the public and our employees. We stand ready to continue to work with our partners for you.”
