Relief, Public Health Guidelines & the 2020 Census 


The County of Los Angeles is regularly updating resources on COVID-19 and offers today's update in an effort to keep you and yours informed. Please share the following up-to-date information:

Relief

For assistance over the phone, call (866) 613-3777.

NEW Guidelines from LA County's Department of Public Health
Emerging evidence suggests that there may be a significant number of people infected with COVID-19 who lack symptoms and, yet, are capable of spreading the virus to others.
New guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that we need to think about using universal precautions all the time – assuming that each of us can infect others even when we aren’t sick.
As a result, the Department of Public Health has updated its FAQ with answers to a number of questions, including:

What should I do if I think I may have been exposed to COVID-19?
What should I do if I have symptoms and think I may have been exposed to COVID-19?
Can I get tested for COVID-19?
How is COVID-19 treated?
How can I protect myself and others from COVID-19?

For more information on how to stay safe visit LA County's covid19.lacounty.gov.

COVID-19 & the 2020 Census
During this time of crisis, getting an accurate census count helps ensure the County of Los Angeles has the resources it needs to protect and support its local communities. When you are counted, you help increase funding for hospitals, health care services, child care centers, parks and affordable housing programs in LA County.

Los Angeles County Launches New interactive Digital Dashboards, connecting residents to latest updates on COVID-19 Impacts 


Los Angeles, CA (Friday, March 27, 2020) —  Los Angeles County launched several new digital tools today to help residents access up-to-date information about the COVID-19 pandemic. A suite of new interactive maps and dashboards are now live on the County website, providing—in one place—a digital hub for updates about virus case counts, emergency proclamations, and information regarding openings and closures for parks, recreation sites, and schools throughout Los Angeles County. 

The new dashboards track, analyze, and display multiple data sources. They are the result of collaboration between the County’s Department of Public Health, Health Services, Parks and Recreation, the Los Angeles County Office of Education, and the Office of Emergency Management. Though the focus is local, the new interactive sites also incorporate global data from Johns Hopkins University's COVID-19 tracking map.

“These maps and dashboards are the latest step we have taken to keep the people of Los Angeles County informed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and connected to County services,” stated Kevin McGowan, Director of the Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Management. “The amount of information about the virus online can be overwhelming, and the data and updates change minute-to-minute. Our COVID-19 website, and its features including these new interactive tools, are a centralized source of trusted information.” 

Four new dashboards are now available (covid19.lacounty.gov/dashboards): 

  1. Case Count Dashboard: This map tracks and displays local Los Angeles County COVID-19 cases and deaths. The interactive dashboard allows users to click on a city or community name, zoom to the selected area, and view the total case count for that community, as well as adjacent areas. The dashboard is updated daily with case count data from the Department of Public Health.  
  2. Emergency Proclamations Dashboard: This interactive dashboard displays local emergency proclamations throughout Los Angeles County.  Users can click a city name to see when a local emergency was proclaimed and view the official proclamation. The dashboard links to cities’ official websites and is updated as LA County’s 88 cities make proclamations. 
  3. Parks and Recreation Closures: This dashboard shows the status of recreation activities, senior programs, and other services provided by County Parks and Recreation.  Users can click to find out which services are open, partially closed, or completely closed. The dashboard is updated as services change throughout the County. 
  4. School Closures: This dashboard displays the closure status of the 80 school districts supported by the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE). Users can click a district to view schools and enrollment count. It is updated with information from LACOE.   
These new dashboards are built on an Esri ArcGIs platform, and are additionally accessible through a mobile version. They are located in the County COVID-19 site’s Newsroom section, which also contains videos, photos, links to Incident Reports, and daily summaries created by the Los Angeles County Emergency Operations Center.

Public Health Issues Order to Prohibit Group Events and Gatherings


LOS ANGELES – Today the Los Angeles County Health Officer (Health Officer) issued an order to prohibit all indoor and outdoor, public and private events and gatherings within a confined space, where 50 or more members of the public are expected to attend at the same time, to require social distancing measures and temporary closure of certain businesses.  The decision for the Order is based on evidence of increasing community transmission requiring the immediate implementation of additional community mitigation efforts for organizations to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 within the county. This Order will remain in effect at least through March 31, 2020.

To further protect against the spread of COVID-19, the Health Officer's Order also requires persons in charge of events and gatherings attended by 10-49 persons to ensure that attendees follow specific social distancing measures, as well as, follow infection control guidelines for the duration of the event and prohibits dining in at restaurants.  Restaurants may continue to serve food to customer via delivery, take-out or drive-thru.  Furthermore, the Order requires the closing of businesses where it is common for patrons to be in close contact with each other for extended periods of time, such as, movie theaters, gyms and fitness centers, arcades, bowling alleys and bars and nightclubs that do not serve food.

“Chairwoman Kathryn Barger continues to take swift action to protect the more than 10 million individuals in Los Angeles County. I would like to thank all the local leaders who are working tirelessly to address what is a quickly changing situation here in Los Angeles County.  Our goal is to slow the transmission of COVID-19, but we can't do it alone,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “Each and every one of us, both businesses and residents, must do our part by practicing social distancing and taking common sense infection control precautions. We urgently need to flatten the curve of COVID-19 in order to keep our hospitals and emergency rooms from becoming overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients.  Flattening the curve requires conscientious social distancing efforts by all our LA County residents during this time of crisis.  Our collective efforts during this pandemic can literally save the lives of our loved ones and most vulnerable residents."

"This Order is designed to implement both the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) Interim Guidance for Large Events and Mass Gatherings and the California Department of Public Health’s Gathering Guidance to limit the spread of COVID-19,” said County Health Officer, Muntu Davis, MD, MPH. “I know that it will significantly impact the lives of our residents and businesses. But, without a specific vaccine or treatment, these community mitigation strategies are the only and most readily available tools we have to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and well-being of our communities in LA County."

Community mitigation efforts include social distancing and temporary closures. Social distancing strategies increase distance between people in specific settings where people commonly come into close contact with one another.  Closures refer to the temporary closures of specific settings where people gather, and act to enhance efforts to implement social distancing.

The Health Officer's Order specifically requires that:
  • Events and gatherings of 50 members or more are prohibited at least until April 1, 2020. This order applies to conferences, arenas, stadiums, convention centers, and meeting spaces.  These are places where persons, often strangers, sit and remain in close proximity of one another for extended periods of time.
  • For all public and private events and gatherings of 10-49 persons, the Health Officer requires that event organizers and venue operators to do the following: Enforce social distancing measures by requiring attendees or groups of attendees, such as a group of family members or household contacts, who remain at the event to be separated by a distance of at least six feet during the entirety of the event or gathering. Provide access to hand washing facilities with soap and water or hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. Post a conspicuous sign at the entry of the event or gathering that instructs persons that have symptoms of respiratory illness to not attend. Adhere to cleaning and infection control guidance provided by Public Health.
  • The Order specifically requires the closure of bars and nightclubs that do not serve food, gyms, fitness centers, movie and performance theaters, bowling alleys and arcades.
  • This Order does not supersede any stricter limitation imposed by a local public entity within the Los Angeles County.
Certain activities are essential to the functioning of the County and the well-being of our residents and must continue. This Order does not apply to sites and situations where people obtain essential services and essential goods to meet their basic needs, such as:
  • Regular school classes, work, or essential services locations.
  • Grocery stores or retail stores.
  • Pharmacies.
  • Places of transit, like airports, metro stations, or bus stations.
  • Hospitals or health care facilities.
  • Schools and universities/colleges.
  • Congregate living situations, including dormitories.
Both the State and County Public Health have provided infection control guidance to facilities and businesses not covered by this order.

Public Health has issued the following guidance during this time of increased spread:
  • Avoid non-essential travel, public gatherings, and places where large groups of people congregate.
  • Event organizers postpone or cancel non-essential gatherings of 50 or more until at least the end of March.
  • Limit gatherings of individuals who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 (people older than 65, pregnant women, and those with chronic illness) to no more than 10 people.
  • This guidance does not apply to activities such as attendance at regular school classes, work, or essential services, including public transportation, airport travel or shopping.
  • If you are mildly sick with a fever, stay home and call your doctor if you are concerned and/or your symptoms worsen. Individuals who are elderly, have underlying health conditions or pregnant should consider contacting their providers earlier when they are sick.
  • Exclude employees and visitors with any fever and/or respiratory infection symptoms and visitors with recent travel to any country or region with significant community transmission (including communities in the US) from all schools, businesses, and gatherings of any size.
  • Follow all social distancing recommendations issued by Public Health.

State Health & Emergency Officials Release Guidance to Prevent the Transmission of COVID-19 in Food and Beverage Venues


Today California officials issued guidance regarding retail food, beverage and other service venues. These venues bring people from multiple communities into close contact with each other and have the potential to increase the transmission of COVID-19.

"These are aggressive, but necessary actions to protect our communities," said Governor Gavin Newsom. "We all have a role to play when it comes to preventing the spread of COVID-19. These establishments that are remaining open should think creatively about how they can continue to provide services to the community. Shifting operations to focus on pick up and delivery options should be prioritized."

The guidance will protect individuals attending and working at these venues and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community
