A Message From Janice Hahn

A Message from Supervisor Janice Hahn

LA County’s “Safer at Home” Order has been extended until at least May 15th so we can continue flattening the curve and prevent COVID-19 from overwhelming our hospitals. 

The good news is that our efforts are working and that we are flattening the curve. Our case count is growing, but the rate of transmission is slowing.

So far, have been able to prevent a surge of cases from overwhelming our healthcare system.

But that does not mean we can become complacent. If we stopped physical distancing today, transmission would take off exponentially and by August 1st, 95% of LA County residents would be infected.  Extending the “Safer at Home” Order prevents this from becoming a reality.

I know this is difficult. This virus is vicious. It is not only robbing people of their lives, the steps we are taking to slow its spread are robbing people of their livelihoods.

But staying safe indoors and away from other people is the best tool that we have to fight this virus and save lives.

If you have any questions about this extension, you can visit LA County’s informational page here.

And if you or a loved one are over the age of 60 or are living with disabilities, LA County is offering a free 24/7 grocery and supply delivery service to get you the items you need so you can remain safer at home.
