With warmer weather in the forecast and businesses opening, it may feel like the pandemic has ended. However, our City now has more confirmed COVID-19 cases than ever. SYLMAR and PACOIMA rank among the top five communities with the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the City of LA.
If you plan to leave your house this weekend, I urge you to keep 6 feet from other people, wash your hands frequently, and wear a mask. Following the rules will protect our families, frontline workers, first responders, and neighbors. It takes all of us working together to save lives.
I also encourage you to get tested at a City testing center — tests are free and available to all LA County residents. Schedule an appointment online: https://corona-virus.la/covid-19-testing.
