L.A. County Continues "Roadmap to Recovery"
During the week of May 25, L.A. County officials amended the Safer at Home order to allow for additional re-openings of businesses and amenities. The updated Health Officer Order is part of a phased progression guiding the safe resumption of public life in Los Angeles County, while keeping the health of the community a top priority. We encourage you to read the revised order and related guidance at, to fully understand the requirements.
Re-Opening: What's Newly Permitted
  • All retail, including those located in indoor and outdoor retail shopping centers, may now open for business at 50% capacity. See Public Health Guidance for Retail.

  • Flea markets, swap meets and drive-in movie theaters may resume operations.

  • Pools, hot tubs and saunas that are in a multi-unit residence or part of a homeowners association may now open. Individuals/guests that do not reside in the apartment, condominium or homeowner’s association are not allowed to use the facilities. See Public Health Guidance for Residential Pools.

  • Faith-based organizations may resume services, with the number of congregants limited to less than 25% of the building’s capacity, or a maximum of 100 people, whichever is lower. See Public Health Guidance for Places of Worship.

Before re-opening, all organizations/businesses must implement plans to allow for physical distancing and infection control practices. Those plans must be posted in a visible place. We encourage you to thoroughly review guidance, checklists and other directives from L.A. County Public Health. You can find information for each sector and business type at
Please Continue to Slow the Spread of COVID-19
COVID-19 is still very much a threat to everyone. Please continue taking proper precautions. The revised Health Officer order continues to require residents to remain at home as much as possible. Gatherings with people outside of your household are still prohibited, with exceptions for faith-based services and public protests.

The Order also requires everyone to continue to physically distance, use cloth face coverings, and implement infection control practices while out in public and around others. At-risk individuals, including people over 65 and those with underlying health conditions, are especially encouraged to stay home. If you are at-risk, please remain home and arrange for assistance with essential supplies and food. Dial 2-1-1 if you need assistance.
Street Sweeping Parking Enforcement Suspension Continues
The Signal Hill Police Department will continue to suspend street sweeping parking enforcement through at least June 30. City staff is continuing to evaluate the situation on an ongoing basis. We kindly ask you to move your vehicle when you can on your sweeping day, as street sweeping is important for our community’s health, safety and stormwater management.
