Safer At Home Order
Holiday Reminder
This week and upcoming weekend is a time when many want to be with their family and faith communities. Dr. Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health, applauded the faith-based organizations that are finding ways to reach out to people online through virtual services and the people who are finding ways to practice their faith together -- from afar.

Dr. Ferrer emphasized that people and faith-based organizations must honor LA County’s Safer at Home order and find ways to be together emotionally, but apart physically. She asked that any planned gatherings in person, as well as in cars, be canceled and sent a reminder that the order prohibits such physical gatherings.

The Safer at Home order directs all members of the public to help slow the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing and taking common sense infection control precautions. County residents are required to stay at home or in their place of residence, except when they need to work at an essential business or healthcare operation, provide essential infrastructure, shop at an essential business, or engage in an essential activity.

Though the need to connect with friends and family is strong, group meals and social gatherings make social distancing difficult, and therefore, put everyone at risk. This is not the time for relatives and friends to come over and be in close proximity to each other. This is a time to physically distance yourself from others.

While family members and contacts living together within a household can go for a walk in the neighborhood, contact with individuals from outside of the household should occur only virtually. Use social media and digital tools to connect, because face-to-face interactions with individuals from other households are prohibited under the Safer at Home order.

Everyone must:
  • Stay home (stay unexposed and do not expose others)
  • Only go out for essential services or if they are an essential worker
  • Stay six feet or more away from others
  • Not gather in groups of any size

Los Angeles County is relying on its residents to respect and follow these health orders. Residents’ cooperation with the health orders is critical as we work to flatten the curve and move beyond the pandemic. We’re in this together.
Updated Guidelines
in response to COVID-19
At the end of March 2020, the County of Los Angeles issued two new health orders to aid in the fight against COVID-19. These two orders are for those whom have tested positive for COVID-19 and those who may be suspected of contracting the virus.
Quarantine Health Order:
  • Required for anyone exposed to a person diagnosed with or likely to have COVID-19.
  • You must stay in quarantine for 14 days from the last time you had contact with the ill person.
  • You cannot leave your place of quarantine for all 14 days.
  • Only exception to leave quarantine is to receive medical care.
  • If you develop even mild COVID-19 symptoms, you must self-isolate at home and away from others.
Isolation Health Order:
  • Required for anyone diagnosed with or showing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 within 14 days of being in close contact with a person who had or was believed to have COVID-19.
  • Self-isolation period must last at least 3 days without symptoms, including being fever free without taking medicine, and 7 days since symptoms started, whichever is longer.
  • Notify anyone you've had close contact with while symptomatic to self-quarantine themselves.
  • Only exception to leave self-isolation is to receive medical care.
