To date, the Health Department has confirmed 334 new infections in Los Angeles County, bringing the total to 12,341 cases. It reports that there have been 24 new deaths across all of Los Angeles County, bringing that total to 600.

Sixteen people who died were over the age of 65. Four people who died were between the ages of 41 and 65 and three people who died were between the ages of 18 and 40. Twenty-three people who died had underlying health conditions.

“Despite the high number of total deaths and the continued increase in new cases, there is evidence that our physical distancing efforts are working,” said Barbara Ferrer, the county’s Public Health director. “As we plan ahead for recovery, we ask that all remain steadfast in complying with the directives laid out in our ‘Safer at Home Order.’ Stay home as much as possible, practice physical distancing at all times, wear face coverings when out in public, and keep hands clean. We know that these are extraordinarily difficult times, and appreciate the efforts made by everyone to bring wellness back to our community. Together we are saving lives and together we will get through this.”

Testing capacity continues to increase in L.A. County, with testing results available for over 79,000 individuals and 15% of people testing positive.

The county has loosened conditions for qualifying for same-day tests, which formerly were reserved for those with symptoms of an infection who were 65 or older or had an underlying health condition such as heart disease. Those who want to be testednow must only exhibit symptoms of a possible infection, which include coughing, a fever, tiredness and, in severe cases, difficulty breathing. Those who want to be testedmust first go onlineto see if they qualify and to book an appointment.A testing site adjacent to West Hollywood is on Alden Drive at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

In its announcement of today’s infection count, the Health Department Public Health reminded residents “that if you are ill, even with mild symptoms, please self- isolate at home for seven days and until you are fever and symptom free for 72 hours. If you have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 or is presumed to be infected with COVID-19, you must quarantine for 14 days from your last contact with that individual. Individuals who are elderly, have underlying health conditions or are pregnant may be at higher risk of serious illness and should contact their doctor as soon as they are sick.”

The best protection against COVID-19 is to wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands, self-isolate if you are sick, practice physical distancing (especially by staying at home) and wear a clean face covering when out in the public procuring or providing essential services.N95 and surgical masks should only be used by healthcare workers, first responders and essential workers providing care for people who are ill.

Essentials businesses must provide a cloth face covering for all employees to wear while performing duties that involve contact with other employees and or the public and to post physical distancing plans. The public is required to wear a face covering to enter essential businesses as well. Beaches, trails and trailheads and non-essential businesses remain closed, and all public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a single household or living unit remain prohibited.
