COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH REMINDS ALL RESIDENTS OF NECESSITY OF SOCIAL DISTANCING
With warm weather forecasted for Los Angeles, the County reminds residents that the Safer At Home directives are still in effect, and cautions against “behavioral fatigue” that may set in, especially when it is tempting to go outside. All residents should continue to remain inside their homes unless it is absolutely necessary to leave in order to perform essential functions. Each time you leave your home, even without symptoms, you put yourself and anyone near you at risk for contracting and spreading COVID-19.
