LA County Orders Closure Of Some Indoor Businesses, 35 New Deaths and 2,002 New Cases of Confirmed COVID-19

July 2, 2020

 

The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified today to align with Gov. Gavin Newsom’s directives and require the closure of:

  • Indoor, in-person dining at restaurants

  • Indoor museums, indoor children’s museums, and indoor operations at zoos and aquariums

  • Cardrooms and satellite wagering facilities

 

Also, the Health Officer Order requires businesses with three or more known cases of COVID-19 within the workplace over the span of 14 days, to report the outbreak to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health). Employers who have one known case within the workplace must have a protocol that requires that person to self-isolate at home and anyone exposed to self-quarantine.

 

Bars remain closed and all events and gatherings unless specifically allowed by this Order remain prohibited. Additionally, face coverings and gloves must be worn at fitness facilities at all times.

 

Los Angeles County continues to see steep increases in community spread of COVID-19. There are 1,889 people currently hospitalized, 27% of these people are confirmed cases in the ICU and 18% are confirmed cases on ventilators. This is the largest number of people hospitalized since early May.

 

There are 2,002 new cases of COVID-19. This is the fourth consecutive day of new cases over 2,000. And today's number is missing lab reports from one of the larger labs.

 

“We are thinking every day of the many families who have lost loved ones to COVID-19.  Our hearts go out to you, and we are so sorry for your loss,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “I know these closures are frustrating and it is heartbreaking to think we are losing ground. These immediate actions give us a chance to regain control over the increased spread. With steep increases in cases and hospitalizations, it is important to act now to prevent as many future cases, hospitalizations and deaths as we can.”

 

In addition to the 2,002 new cases, Public Health has confirmed 35 new deaths of COVID-19. Twenty-one people who died were over the age of 65 years old, six people who died were between the ages of 41 and 65 years old, and four people who died are between the ages of 18 and 40 years old. Thirty-one people had underlying health conditions including 25 people over the age of 65 years old and six people between the ages of 41 to 65 years old. Two deaths were reported by the City of Long Beach and two deaths were reported by the City of Pasadena.

 

To date, Public Health has identified 105,507 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of LA County, and a total of 3,402 deaths. Ninety-three percent of people who died had underlying health conditions. Of those who died, information about race and ethnicity is available for 3,158 people (99 percent of the cases reported by Public Health); 43% of deaths occurred among Latino/Latinx residents, 27% among White residents, 17% among Asian residents, 11% among African American/Black residents, less than 1% among Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander residents and 1% among residents identifying with other races. Upon further investigation, 24 cases and two deaths reported earlier were not LA County residents. Testing results are available for nearly 1,120,000 individuals, with 9% of people testing positive.

 

Everyone should always wear a face covering securely over your nose and mouth and keep six feet apart from others not in your household when out in public. Businesses must continue to follow Public Health directives. Public Health reminds everyone that you remain safer at home.

 

Earlier this week a Health Officer Order was issued that closes LA County beaches from July 3 through July 6 at 5:00 a.m. to prevent crowded situations that could result in more spread of COVID-19. All public beaches, piers, public beach parking lots, beach bike paths that traverse that sanded portion of the beach, and beach access points will be temporarily closed to the public. The Order also prohibits fireworks displays.

 

The Reopening Protocols, COVID-19 Surveillance Interactive Dashboard, Roadmap to Recovery, Recovery Dashboard, and additional things you can do to protect yourself, your family and your community are on the Public Health website, www.publichealth.lacounty.gov.

 

Please note:  During July 4 through July 5, Public Health will make improvements to the data processing systems which will result in no new data being reported on those days. This pause in reporting will not affect the collection of this data or outbreak investigations.
