will meet at the Duarte Senior Center (1610 E Hun-tington Dr) before going out in teams to conduct the count.

The Duarte City Council is holding its second redistricting Public Hearing on Tuesday, January 11, 2022, and its third 
Public Hearing on Tuesday, February 8, 2022. All hear-ings will be held in the Duarte City Council Chambers (1600 
Huntington Drive) starting at 7:15 PM. 

Every ten years, cities with by district election systems must utilize new census data to review, and if needed, redraw 
district lines to reflect how local populations have shifted. This process, called redistricting, ensures all districts have 
nearly equal populations.

At the second Public Hearing on Tuesday, January 11, residents will have the opportunity to share input on how they 
believe the boundaries for Council districts should be drawn. The City is seeking guidance on identifying communities 
of interest and other local factors that should be considered when drafting district maps.

Communities of interest are populations that share common social or economic interests. Many times, these communities 
of interest benefit from being in a single district to ensure equitable electoral representation. Some examples of 
communities of interest include:

• School attendance areas

• Natural dividing lines such as major roads, hills, or highways

• Areas around parks or other neighborhood landmarks

• Common issues, neighborhood activities, or legislative concerns 

• Areas where households speak a language other than English at home

At the hearing, the City’s demographic consultants will provide an overview of the available mapping tools. Paper 
and digital mapping tools will be available after the meeting on the City’s redistricting website, The 
public can submit draft maps to by Thursday, January 27 for consider-ation at the 
next Public Hearing.

The City’s third redistricting Public Hearing on Tuesday, February 8 will focus on re-viewing resident-submitted draft 
maps, providing feedback, and identifying its focus maps. If the Council presents no revisions at this hearing, a map 
may be selected for a preliminary first reading of the ordinance adopting Council’s new district map. 

Per state mandate, masks are required to be worn indoors at the Public Hearings.

COVID-19 Updates

The Los Angeles Department of Public Health has modified its Health Officer Order to include additional safety 
measures as a result of the increased circulation of the highly transmissible Omicron and Delta variant. Specifically, 
there are two updates to the Health Officer Order that the community should be aware of. 

Masking Requirements

Employers are required to provide their employees who work indoors in close contact with others with well-
fitting medical grade masks, surgical masks, or higher-level respirators, such as N95 or KN95 masks by January 
17. According to the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, these upgraded masks are better at blocking 
virus particles from going through the mask. 

Isolation & Quarantine Requirements

Isolation and quarantine requirements have been revised to align with State Public Health Officer’s guidelines as 

Isolation – all persons who test positive regardless of vaccination status, previous infection or lack of symptoms, 
must self-isolate for at least 5 days

Quarantine – All unvaccinated/vaccinated persons eligible for a booster but who have not yet received it, and 
who are in close contact with someone with COVID-19, must quarantine for 5 days. May only end quarantine 
after day 5 if (a) asymptomatic and (b) negative COVID test.

All fully vaccinated persons (2 doses plus booster for those eligible, 2 doses for those ineligible), do not need to
