As the number of confirmed cases across Los Angeles County continues to rise, Los Angeles County public health officials urge residents to stay home this week and limit time spent outside. Yes, that means you should avoid shopping to slow the spread of the virus.
If you must leave your home this week for an urgent matter, please make sure to cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face covering, maintain physical distancing of at least six feet, and frequently wash your hands. The coronavirus does not discriminate — it infects people of all backgrounds, ages, and can cause serious illness and death, especially among those that have underlying health conditions or are elderly. I urge you, please stay home like your life and the lives of your loved ones depend on it.
