LOS ANGELES:- Starting tomorrow, Friday, May 28, through next Thursday, June 3, at all the county-run vaccination sites, LA city sites and the St. John’s Well Child and Family Center sites, everyone 18 and older getting their first vaccine or bringing a first-time vaccine recipient with them to their second dose appointment, will have an opportunity to win a pair of tickets to the 2021-2022 home season of either the LA Kings or the LA Galaxy. Two residents will be awarded prizes.
The best way to prepare for a safe Memorial Day holiday is to be vaccinated. That way, keeping your get-togethers in line with Public Health safety guidelines is much simpler: When everyone at a gathering is vaccinated, you can gather outdoors or inside without any masking or distancing requirements. However, if any of the guests at your gathering are unvaccinated, they should wear masks and keep a distance from people in other households. In these situations, gathering outdoors with at most 100 others is safest, and if you gather indoors, keep the numbers lower, at 50% of capacity or 50 people, whichever is fewer. Enjoy LA County’s beaches, movie theaters, amusement parks, campgrounds, certified famers’ markets, live events, museums, family entertainment centers, and holiday sales. Guidelines for individual sites and sectors apply.
Today, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed 9 new deaths and 217 new cases of COVID-19. Of the nine new deaths reported today, five people that passed away were over the age of 80, one person who died was between the ages of 65 and 79, and two people who died were between the ages of 30 and 49. One death was reported by the City of Long Beach.
Public Health’s data teams have identified 3,857 historical L.A. County resident cases dating back to March 16, 2020 that are included in case totals. These cases came from inpatient and outpatient medical records and cases with updated address information or revised jurisdiction criteria. To date, Public Health identified 1,243,319 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County and a total of 24,321 deaths.
There are 325 people with COVID-19 currently hospitalized and 19% of these people are in the ICU. Testing results are available for more than 6,730,000 individuals with 17% of people testing positive. Today’s daily test positivity rate is 0.4%.
“To those who have been grieving the loss of a loved one or a coworker to this virus, you have our deepest condolences, and our thoughts are with you,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “As you gather together with family this Memorial Day, I hope you join me in expressing our profound gratitude for all the sacrifices our veterans have made on behalf of others. I know we are all glad this Memorial Day many of us will be able to gather with family and friends again. Perhaps, this year, where so many have lost their lives in the battle against COVID-19, an important way to honor our service members is to emulate their willingness to put their care for others front and center. This caring for others has made it possible to get through this pandemic, and making a decision to get vaccinated in order to protect those who cannot get vaccinated helps get us to the other side. So over the next week, make time amid the Memorial Day remembrances to get your vaccine. Not only will you honor the sacrifices of others and gain a lot of added protection for yourself, but you may be that lucky person who gets to watch an amazing team do our County proud.”
