Prevent COVID-19
Safer at Home
As part of the City's continued efforts to promote public health and safety, we urge all residents to check-in on family, friends and neighbors. Always follow social distancing guidelines when checking in with anyone. Keep at least a 6 foot distance between you and other people or use your phone to call, text or send an email. 

Elderly residents who are unable to leave their homes due to underlying health conditions or mobility issues for necessary food, supplies, and medications are encouraged to call City Hall. City staff is here to assist residents. If you have questions, know someone who may need assistance or would like additional information regarding City operations, call City Hall at (562) 694 - 6302 or email at info@Lhhcity.org. 

The phones are staffed during normal business hours, Monday–Thursdays from 8:00 A.M. – 5:30 P.M. After business hours, residents can leave a message and a staff member will return your call as soon as possible.
New 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.
Safer At Home
Doesn't Mean Isolation
Practice social distancing, but make sure you stay social.

As stated in the LA County "Safer at Home" Order, the purpose of the Order is to further restrict and limit the gathering of people in an effort to stem or slow the spread of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County.

Despite limits set by the order, residents are encouraged to be social in other ways. Below are steps everyone can take daily to remain social and reduce the risk of getting sick or infecting others.

  • Check on your neighbors
  • Call your family and friends
  • Send an email or write and mail a letter
  • Keep healthy routines
  • Eat healthy
  • Sleep well
  • Stay active

If you need assistance please call City Hall at (562) 694 - 6302.
