Safer at Home Health Order Extended Until Further Notice, New COVID-19 Cases Continue

Post Date:05/08/2020

A new Los Angeles County Health Officer Order has been issued that keeps the County moving through Stage 2 of its Roadmap to Recovery. It still requires specific higher-risk businesses to remain closed while allowing more retail businesses to re-open conditionally as long as they adhere to County protocols.

At the same time, it encourages all residents to stay in their homes as much as possible and to continue practicing social distancing when out in the public and wear a cloth face covering.

 

The updated Order and the list of approved and prohibited activities can be viewed here.

 

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the City of Paramount.  To see the daily updates from Public Health, please click here.

Public Health is investigating all new cases and will notify close contacts who are household members, intimate partners, and healthcare professionals to assess and monitor them for signs and symptoms of illness. Close contacts are quarantined.  The details of this individual (name, age, address, locations visited, etc.) will not be released by Public Health. In a press release, Public Health stated the following: “Because there are positive cases across the entire County, the public should not think one location is safer than the other.” That underscores the need for residents in Paramount and every community to take social distancing and hygiene protocols very seriously.
