LA County Eating places, Retail Won't Reopen Until July 4 At Earliest

General NewsL.A. County Eating places Retail Won’t Reopen Until July 4 At Earliest – Variety

"I understand the urgency to reopen and know numerous experts the county has assembled for this task force have been working hard to develop safe and efficient plans to revitalize their sectors as early as next month", county Supervisor Kathryn Barger said in a statement following the meeting.

The restaurant industry had seen 80 per cent of jobs lost, and 890,000 people in the film and entertainment employees were laid off.

Even as more of California reopens restaurants and shops, Los Angeles is among a small number of California's 58 counties that either have not sufficiently contained the virus to reopen more activities and commerce or, in the case of several San Francisco Bay Area counties, have chosen to move more slowly. According to the county's COVID-19 surveillance dashboard, Alhambra has 148 cases and 8 deaths.

"This testing allows us to better understand how many people have been exposed to COVID-19 and how the virus is showing up in our communities".

LA County Department of Public Health - Environmental Health Specialist Nona Oganisyan, issued a message in Armenian today during the daily press briefing, urging the Armenian-American community to continue following safe practices to avoid getting infected along with updated statistical data.

The news from the County Health Dept. comes as gradual reopenings of businesses and facilities are taking place.

Reuters/Ipsos poll: A quarter of Americans are hesitant about a coronavirus vaccine
AstraZeneca's chief executive Pascal Soriot described the coronavirus as a "global tragedy" and "a challenge for all humanity". From the vaccine candidates we have in therace against COVID, the Oxford vaccine is progressing at an unbelievable pace.

"As more people are going back to work", said Ferrer, "we need our employers and our employees to work together to make sure that employees and customers are in an environment that's as safe as possible". "I know this is all very hard".

While the case numbers continue to go up, Ferrer stressed that key indicators tracked by the health department show that the spread of the virus is slowing. She pointed to recent figures indicating that people who test positive for the illness in the county are now infecting an average of less than one other person, down from three early in the pandemic.

That data is not looking as positive for Los Angeles County as had been hoped, leading the White House to ask for the CDC to investigate why COVID-19 infection rates remain high.

Densely-populated Los Angeles county has suffered more than 43,000 confirmed cases, with 2,049 deaths - well over half of the state's fatalities.

"That means continuing our safety measures and implementing new rules on how to conduct business safely", she said. "We've got to do lots of issues proper in order that we are able to truly get to that date of July 4 and have plenty of totally different sectors reopened..." Just this week we learned that one USA team developing a vaccine using a new, mRNA-based technology, has already shown some positive preliminary results.

The county also announced that the next results from their joint-study with USC on serology - or the presence of COVID-19 antibodies in a random sampling of county adults - will be announced as early as tomorrow.
