“To the family and friends of people who have passed away from COVID-19, we wish you healing and peace during this sad and difficult time,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “The recent increase in daily cases and rates of positive test results indicates that there is more community spread of COVID-19 in LA County. It is as important as ever to use the tools we have to slow the spread of the virus. Please practice physical distancing and wear a cloth face covering. If you have been exposed and/or if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or waiting for results, please self-isolate and stay away from other people, even those who live in your household. These actions save lives.”
