COVID-19 Deaths and Hospitalizations Increase: Residents Urged to 
Avoid Unnecessary Public Contact

“We mourn with all the families that have lost loved ones to COVID-19. You are in our 
thoughts and prayers every day,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public 
Health. “Unfortunately, we continue to see negative trends in the data and we urgently 
need to make a change in the trajectory. We must make sure we are not unnecessarily 
spending time outside with others and use this opportunity as a countywide reset. We 
need everyone's help. Please avoid contact with other people who are not part of your 
household, wear your face covering when out and about and wash your hands frequently.”

As we head into the 4th of July weekend, Public Health reminds everyone that all events 
and gatherings unless specifically allowed by the Health Officer Order remain prohibited. 
Please enjoy your weekend with your household only. If you do go out, Public Health 
urges everyone to avoid the Three C's: Crowded places, Confined spaces and Close contact 
with others not in your household. Everyone should always wear a face covering securely 
over your nose and mouth and keep six feet apart from others not in your household when 
out in public. Businesses must continue to follow Public Health directives. 

Public Health updated the gym and fitness center protocol in the Health Officer Order issued 
yesterday to require patrons to wear a mask and gloves at all times at fitness centers. 
Fitness center patrons are warned to not extend themselves to a point where they can't 
breathe comfortably while wearing a face covering over both their nose and mouth at all 

The Order requires the closure of:

Indoor, in-person dining at restaurants

Indoor museums, indoor children’s museums, and indoor operations at zoos and 

Cardrooms and satellite wagering facilities

Bars remain closed, however retail operations for breweries, brew pubs, and wineries 
may remain open.

The Health Officer Order also requires businesses with three or more known cases of 
COVID-19 within the workplace over the span of 14 days, to report the outbreak to the 
Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health). Employers who have 
one known case within the workplace must have a protocol that requires that person to 
self-isolate at home and anyone exposed to self-quarantine. 

LA County beaches are closed from July 3 through July 6 at 5:00 a.m. to prevent crowded 
situations that could result in more spread of COVID-19. All public beaches, piers, public 
beach parking lots, beach bike paths that traverse that sanded portion of the beach, and 
beach access points will be temporarily closed to the public. Fireworks displays are also 

Of the 55 new deaths, 40 people who died were over the age of 65 years old, 11 people who 
died were between the ages of 41 and 65 years old, and one person who died was between 
the ages of 18 and 40 years old. Forty-five people had underlying health conditions including 
36 people over the age of 65 years old, eight people between the ages of 41 to 65 years 
old, and one person between the ages of 18 to 40 years old. One death was reported by the 
City of Long Beach and two deaths were reported by the City of Pasadena.

To date, Public Health has identified 107,667 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas 
of LA County, and a total of 3,454 deaths. Ninety-three percent of people who died 
had underlying health conditions and 7% did not. Of those who died, information about

Health); 43% of deaths occurred among Latino/Latinx residents, 27% among White 
residents, 16% among Asian residents, 11% among African American/Black residents,

Adjustments Due to COVID-19The 2020 Census is underway, and more than 
half of the households across America have 
responded and more are responding every day. 
Online, phone, and mailed self-responses will 
continue throughout the data collection pro-
cess. In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the U.S. 
Census Bureau has adjusted 2020 Census opera-
tions in order to:
• Protect the health and safety of the American 
public and Census Bureau employees.
• Implement guidance from federal, state, and 
local authorities regarding COVID-19.
• Ensure a complete and accurate count of all 
The Office of Management and Budget and the 
Office of Personnel Management have provided 
federal agencies with guidelines for resum-
ing operations on an epidemiologically sound, 
data-driven basis, adhering to the latest federal, 
state, and local guidance. The Census Bureau 
continues to monitor the changing conditions at 
the state and local level, and in consultation with 
the appropriate officials, update its planned start 
dates for selected operations in selected states. 
The information the Census Bureau receives 
daily from FEMA and state and local authorities 
guides Census Bureau decisions on timing. As a 
result, selected field operations will resume on a 
phased schedule on a geographic basis.
Under the adjusted 2020 Census operational 
plan, the Census Bureau is conducting a series 
of preparatory activities so we are fully ready to 
resume field activities as we continue to advance 
the mission of the 2020 Census to ensure a 
complete and accurate count. In-person activ-
ities, including enumeration, office work, and 
processing activities, will always incorporate the 
most current guidance from authorities to ensure 
the health and safety of the public and Census 
Bureau employees.
