Surge in COVID-19 Cases
The continued surge in cases here in LA County should have us all deeply concerned. On Saturday, LA County Department of Public Health reported over 3,700 new cases of COVID-19. On Sunday, over 3,000 new cases, and today, even with the weekend reporting lag, LA County has close to 2,800 new cases. The Department of Public Health has not reported daily numbers like this since late July, during the last surge that resulted in many people becoming very seriously ill and losing their lives to COVID-19.

It is important for everyone in LA County, businesses and residents, to return to the mindset LA County had earlier in the pandemic where residents followed the rules. For residents the LA County Department of Public Health ask you to take the following immediate actions:

  • Re-think your holiday plans and cancel any plans for travel outside the region in the coming weeks.

  • If you have plans to celebrate thanksgiving with others who are not in your household, please make sure you will celebrate outdoors with only 2 other households. If you need to be indoors, this can only happen with members of your immediate household. This is particularly important since people will need to take off their face coverings while eating and drinking.

  • Stay home as much as possible for the next 2-3 weeks except for accessing essential services. This is especially important for people who are older and people with serious underlying health conditions. When possible, try to use delivery services for groceries and medicines. If this isn't possible, assign one person from your household to take care of errands and shopping.

  • If you live with people that are older or have serious health conditions, wear masks and keep your distance both indoors and outdoors as much as possible. Higher risk household members should try when possible to eat by themselves and particularly avoid being in close contact with other people who have possible exposures at their jobs or in the community.

  • If you are positive or in close contact of someone who is positive, please follow the public health orders to isolate or quarantine for the full amount of time; 10 days for isolating if you are positive and 14 days if you need to quarantine.

  • If you have engaged in risky activities where you may have been exposed because you were in a crowd with people who weren't wearing masks and distancing, please self-quarantine for 14 days.
