"The Los Angeles County Health Department issued a response claiming there are exceptions for film and television after actor Seth Rogen called out Covid violations on-stage during the 2021 Emmy Awards.

In a statement obtained by the Los Angeles Times, the health department claimed the awards show, where hundreds of Hollywood elite gathered without masks, was exempt because they implemented additional safety modifications.
