LOS ANGELES:- Today, the State released updated blueprint tier numbers; L.A. County’s adjusted case rate dropped from 1.2 new cases per 100,000 people to 0.9 new cases per 100,000. The overall test positivity rate dropped from 0.6% to 0.5% across the county and in areas with the fewest health affirming resources.
Los Angeles County remains in the least restrictive yellow tier in the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy framework.
Today, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed 10 new deaths and 191 new cases of COVID-19. Of the 10 new deaths reported today, five people that passed away were over the age of 80, three people who died were between the ages of 65 and 79, and two people who died were between the ages of 50 and 64.
To date, Public Health identified 1,239,093 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County and a total of 24,184 deaths.
There are 325 people with COVID-19 currently hospitalized and 22% of these people are in the ICU. Testing results are available for nearly 6,712,000 individuals with 17% of people testing positive. Today’s daily test positivity rate is 0.4%.
On June 15, almost all sectors and businesses will be able to return to usual operations with some limited exceptions. In most settings, capacity limits and distancing requirements will be lifted. There will be requirements and recommendations for mega-events and the County will rescind its travel advisory and align with the State and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on travel.
“To the many people across our communities who are mourning the loss of a loved one, we are keeping you in our hearts and prayers,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “The County continues to see progress in our metrics as our vaccination rate goes up. Vaccinating as many residents as we can puts us in the strongest position possible when the risk of transmission goes up with full re-openings in a few weeks. The most powerful tool to keep cases and hospitalizations down and end this pandemic as we know it, are the vaccines.”
