To date, Public Health has identified 30,296 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of LA County, and a total of 1,468 deaths.

Upon further investigation, 14 cases and one death reported earlier were not LA County residents. As of today, 5,298 people who tested positive for COVID-19 (19% of positive cases) have been hospitalized at some point during their illness.

Testing capacity continues to increase across skilled nursing facilities in LA County. As of this morning, 95 skilled nursing facilities with the support from Public Health, the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services and the City of Los Angeles have tested all residents and staff. Public Health continues to schedule appointments with other skilled nursing facilities to complete testing, conduct on-site inspections and survey bed capacity, staffing capacity and availability of personal protective equipment.

“This pandemic has brought heartache to many families, and to those who are grieving loved ones who have passed away from COVID-19, we are so sorry, and we wish you healing and peace,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “Public Health is prioritizing closing disparities and protecting people who are at greater risk of serious illness and death from COVID-19. As some businesses begin to slowly reopen, we need to double down on all efforts to protect those who are disproportionally affected by the virus. Please continue to do your part to protect yourself and others from becoming infected with COVID-19 by practicing physical distancing, wearing a cloth face covering and frequently washing your hands. We all share in the responsibility for a safe recovery journey, so continue to work together, do our part and take care of each other.”
