Dr. Ferrer, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, mentioned that individuals who are undocumented and do not have a medical provider, please call 211.

They will be referred to a Federally Qualified Health Clinic. A doctor would be assigned to them and would determine if the person would need to be tested.

Garcetti orders closures of bars, gyms, theaters, in-person dining in restaurants to contain coronavirus

The following message is from Eric Garcetti, Mayor of Los Angeles.

I know this has been a difficult week. The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has disrupted daily life for people across our city 鈥 and I know many Angelenos are worried about what it means for our lives, our livelihoods, and our loved ones.

What each of us does today will have a direct impact on what happens tomorrow. That鈥檚 why I鈥檓 taking emergency action to stop large gatherings of people in the City of L.A., so that we can further strengthen our work to slow the spread of COVID-19.

https://www.facebook.com/MayorOfLA/videos/239667167195511/

Effective 11:59 p.m. tonight, the following establishments within the City of Los Angeles will be temporarily closed to the public:

Bars and nightclubs that do not serve food;
Movie theaters and live performance venues;
Bowling alleys and arcades; and,
Gyms and fitness centers
The following restrictions will also apply:

All restaurants are prohibited from serving food to dine-in customers, but may continue to offer food via delivery, takeout, or drive-through
These restrictions do not apply to:

Grocery stores鈥撯揳nd there is no shortage of food or interruption of our food supply;
Cafeterias within hospitals, nursing homes, and similar facilities
The restrictions we鈥檙e putting in place will be effective through March 31, 2020, unless they are extended. They build on the orders I issued last week to help protect the public and prevent the spread of the virus.

Houses of worship are urged to limit large gatherings on their premises and to explore and implement ways to practice their respective faiths while observing social distancing practices.
Additionally, no landlord shall evict a residential tenant in the City of Los Angeles during this local emergency period if the tenant is able to show an inability to pay rent due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic.


This is not an easy path, but the City is committed to supporting all businesses, restaurants, and workers impacted by these decisions.

These steps are informed by the guidance of experts at the Centers for Disease Control and taken in coordination with our partners at every level of government. They will slow the spread of COVID-19 and help to prevent a dangerous strain on our hospitals and healthcare workers.

As we undertake these efforts together, many Angelenos are eager to know what they can do to help. To answer this call, the Mayor鈥檚 Fund for Los Angeles has created the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund. You can donate to this fund to help support families, provide critical services, and strengthen our emergency response.

Finally, remember that we are all first responders, and we must each do our part to protect vulnerable Angelenos. Avoid non-essential travel, wash your hands thoroughly and frequently, stay home as much as you can, and practice social distancing.

For accurate and timely updates, visit CDC.gov, PublicHealth.LACounty.gov, and LAMayor.org/Coronavirus. And don鈥檛 forget to sign up for NotifyLA, our city鈥檚 mass notification system.

We are working around-the-clock and doing everything we can to keep you safe, healthy, and secure.

This may be one of our greatest challenges yet, but Angelenos have always risen to meet the moment. I know we will do so once again.

Share this information with your family, friends, and colleagues, so we can all do our part to protect our community and our city.

This is a moment for preparation, not panic. A moment to be kind and generous and to show the very best of the Angeleno spirit. And I know that each of us will do our part to stay vigilant, stay informed, and help limit the spread of this virus.

We will get through this together 鈥撯 in Los Angeles, we always do.

Eric Garcetti
Your Mayor

A Look at the City Alexandria, this ancient city that became full of many contradictions, we will know about the city and its contradictions through the eyes of deaf youth, they will present their opinion on their city through a collection of photographs, that they look at the city and the form of life within it. 鈥淎 Look at the City鈥 exhibition is a product of a workshop made especially to the youth of the deaf, to train them on photography through their mobile phones. Also at the workshop, several discussions and seminars were conducted with these young people about the city, form of living and the relationship between the people and their city, so that they could use the photograph as a form to express their opinion about the city and their personal relationship with it, and as a language of communication between them and their society, and between them and the world. And thus, every one of these youth took several photographs of the city, and the form of living within it, expressing his own vision of the city. 鈥淎 Look at the City鈥 is a project of Lab for Digital & Visual Arts initiative, Founded and managed by Waguih El Laqany Deaf Lab for Digital and Visual Arts - 賲禺鬲亘乇 丕賱氐賲 賱賱賮賳賵賳 丕賱乇賯賲賷丞 賵丕賱亘氐乇賷丞
