Morning Briefing: Your Coronavirus Cheat Sheet, Checking In With Seniors And The Unhoused

Good morning, Los Angeles. (Chava Sanchez/LAist)
Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

If your head is spinning from the speed of the news, you’re not alone. As of the latest count, there are now 94 cases of coronavirus confirmed in L.A. County. President Trump’s coronavirus task force recommended keeping gatherings to 10 people or less and L.A. schools became really, truly closed to kids.

It’s also still raining, which we can all agree gives this whole situation a much more apocalyptic vibe. Still, we have you covered for what to watch while you’re social distancing at home, and an unexpected (and very welcome!) way to keep your kids entertained.

Here’s what else we’re…

Covering Today:

  • The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County dropped Friday to its lowest amount since Mar. 21, reports Itxy Quintanilla.
  • Caitlin Hernandez explains the 2020 census mailers.
