LA County COVID-19 Cases Trigger 3-Week Stay-At-Home Order
Los Angeles County set a new coronavirus record Monday. Public health officials report 6,124 new COVID-19 cases — the county's largest number since the start of the pandemic.
About 1,500 of those cases are from delayed results from the weekend, but that staggering total now puts the county over the five-day average of 4,500 to trigger a new stay-at-home order.
County public health director Barbara Ferrer will discuss the order at the Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday.
While it is planned to be less restrictive than the one last spring, according to Ferrer, it comes as outdoor restaurant dining shuts down for three weeks starting Wednesday.
"And while we may resent the safety measures, and many of them have a tremendous impact on families and the economy, they have been shown to prevent significant suffering and death," Ferrer said.
