CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

March 16th, 2020

Our local and state officials have put several regulations in place to try to reduce the spread of the COVID-19, a coronavirus that has created a global pandemic.

A brief recap follows with links to their offices for more detailed information.

Mayor Garcetti has prohibited gatherings of more than 50 people. He has also closed all restaurants and bars to the public but many continue to operate offering delivery or take out. Movie theatres and gyms are closed.

Governor Newsom is calling for home isolation of everyone in the state age 65 and older, and people with chronic disease, both high-risk populations.

Social distancing is the best tool we have to reduce the spread of the virus and prevent overwhelming our hospitals and health care providers.

Stay at home if you can.

If you must go out keep a distance of 6 feet from others.

Wash your hands frequently.

Cover your cough or sneezes.

Don’t go out at all if you are sick.

Social distancing will protect not just your family but everyone else in the community, especially those that are more vulnerable to this virus.

We can still support our local restaurants by requesting delivery or take out.

Please check on your senior neighbors or others who may not be able to get out and may need assistance. While we can’t gather in person right now, we can connect virtually or via phone to support one another through this challenging time.
