Public Health reminds residents to avoid crowds over the holiday weekend and encourages everyone to shop online or during off-hours as much as possible. If residents do plan to go out, they should stay 6-feet apart from others and wear a face covering over their nose and mouth at all times. Retail stores are operating at limited occupancy rates and inspectors will be out over the weekend to ensure compliance with safety measures.
“Our hearts go out to those across the county who are experiencing profound grief because they have lost a loved one or friend to COVID-19,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “This Thanksgiving, we extend our deep gratitude to the frontline healthcare workers, first responders, and essential workers who have supported our community with critical services. Your dedication and grace have carried us throughout the pandemic. To our LA County family, I wish you peace as you celebrate Thanksgiving.
