室外餐厅，啤酒厂和酿酒厂的顾客数量将被限制为最大室外容量的50％。 餐馆，啤酒厂，酿酒厂，酒吧和所有其他非必需的零售场所必须从晚上10点开始关闭。 到凌晨6点不是宵禁，而是对营业时间的限制。 在允许的情况下，企业仍可以在这些时间以外提供接送服务。
如果五天的平均病例数为4,500或更多，或者每天住院治疗超过2,000，则将强制要求“三天住家更安全”。 该命令只允许基本和紧急工作人员以及获得基本服务的人员离开家园。 此外，下午10:00 宵禁将强制执行至凌晨6:00，基本工人除外。
今天，洛杉矶县公共卫生局（Public Health）已确认36例新死亡和3944例新COVID-19病例。 迄今为止，公共卫生部门在洛杉矶县的所有地区确定了348,336例COVID-19阳性病例，共7,335例死亡。 经进一步调查，较早报告的131例不是洛杉矶县居民。
目前测试结果超过344万个人，其中9％的人测试为阳性。 本县的测试阳性率或测试结果呈阳性的百分比已从11月8日的平均约5.1％增加到今天的约7.1％。 而11月1日的测试阳性率为3.9％。
“我们对所有因失去亲人或朋友而遭受COVID-19悲伤的人深表同情。 我们希望您在这个非常困难的时期能够得到安慰和康复。”公共卫生总监MPH，医学博士Barbara Ferrer说道。 “ COVID-19的影响，让我们已经看到了其他社区和其他州，这些社区和州几乎没有或没有任何限制，看到死亡人数越来越多，重病和死亡。
在犹他州，当前的发病率目前超过每100,000人1200例。 在印第安纳州，比率是每10万人中有1,100人。 在加利福尼亚州，这一比率约为每十万人中有250人。 我认为我们每个人都应该问自己，我们必须要关心自己和家人，以防止COVID-19造成更大量的痛苦和死亡。 更改任何不涉及家庭成员的室内聚会计划。 避免在人群众多且难以与他人保持六英尺距离的所有活动。 如果您与年龄较大或有潜在健康状况的人在一起，请在内部和外部佩戴面罩。 并确保在企业，工作场所和零售场所遵守所有规则。”
今年庆祝感恩节的最佳方法是呆在家里与家人一起庆祝。 使用所有使我们能够相距遥远的彼此见面和交流的技术，与您不熟悉的朋友和家人建立联系。 如果您确实需要选择聚会，请密切注意私人聚会的指导。 与其他家庭（最多不超过15人）一起在户外聚会； 除非吃饭或喝水，否则要戴面罩，并且至少要相距6英尺。 聚会时间不得超过两个小时，并且不要共享食物或器皿。
尽管我们在缩小差距方面取得了进展，但随着案件激增，我们开始看到不成比例的比率更高。 在7月激增至9月中旬之后，我们看到了Latino / Latin西语裔居民与其他居民之间的数据鸿沟开始缩小。 最低的时候，拉丁裔/拉丁裔居民的病案率不到白人居民的两倍。 但是，自9月中旬以来，拉丁美洲/拉丁裔居民的病案率大约是白人和非裔美国人/黑人居民的两倍。 亚洲居民的病案率仍然最低。
在7月和8月的高峰期，拉丁裔/拉丁裔居民的住院率是每100,000人30例住院，是白人居民的三倍。 这种差距从7月到9月中旬逐渐缩小，那时拉丁美洲人/拉丁裔居民的住院率下降到每10万人约8例，是白人居民的两倍。 截至11月7日，拉丁裔/拉丁裔居民现在每10万人中的住院率已接近10.5，这是白人居民每100,000人中3.8住院率的两倍。
今天报道的36例新死亡中，有16例死亡的人年龄在80岁以上，9例死亡的人在65至79岁之间，8例死亡的人在50至64岁之间。 其中有两位死者年龄在30到49岁之间。 有28位死亡者具有基本的健康状况，其中包括80岁以上的12个人，65岁至79岁的9个人，50岁至64岁的7个人，以及50岁之间的1个人。 30和49岁。 帕萨迪纳市报告有1人死亡。
死于COVID-19的人中有93％具有基本的健康状况。 在这些死亡者中，有6,920人可获得有关种族和种族的信息（公共卫生报告病例的99％）； 52％的死亡发生在拉丁裔/拉丁裔居民，23％的白人居民，14％的亚裔居民，10％的非裔美国人/黑人居民，不到1％的夏威夷土著居民/太平洋岛民和1％的居民中 其他种族。
Public Health to Update Health Officer Order as COVID-19 Transmission Surges and Hospitalizations Accelerate
Public Health Reports 36 New Deaths and 3,944 New Confirmed Cases of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County
As COVID-19 cases surge and hospitalizations continue to increase, the Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified with an effective date of Friday, November 20 to reduce the possibility for crowding and reduce the potential for exposures in settings where people are not always wearing their face coverings in an effort to prevent more cases, increased hospitalizations and more deaths.
On Friday, the following will go into effect:
Private outdoor gatherings may only include 15 people who are from no more than 3 households, including the host household.
The number of patrons at outdoor restaurants, breweries and wineries will be limited to 50% maximum outdoor capacity. Restaurants, breweries, wineries, bars, and all other non-essential retail establishments must close from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. This is not a curfew, but rather restrictions on operating hours. As permitted to operate, businesses can still offer pick-up and delivery services outside of these hours.
The number of customers at cardrooms, outdoor mini-golf, go-karts and batting cages will be limited to 50% maximum outdoor capacity.
Non-essential businesses permitted to operate indoors – including retail stores, offices, personal care services – will be limited to 25% of the maximum occupancy allowed.
Services at personal care establishments may only be provided by appointment to customers wearing face coverings by staff wearing face coverings.
Services that require either the customer or the staff to remove their face covering, such as facials and shaves, are not permitted.
Food and drinks cannot be served at these establishments to customers.
In addition, the County has established thresholds for additional actions if cases and/or hospitalizations continue to increase.
If the five-day average of cases is 4,000 or more or hospitalizations are more than 1,750 per day, outdoor and indoor dining at restaurants, breweries, wineries and bars will be prohibited and these businesses will only be able to offer pick-up and delivery services.
If the five-day average of cases is 4,500 or more or hospitalizations are more than 2,000 per day, a Safer at Home Order will be mandated for three weeks. The Order would only allow essential and emergency workers and those securing essential services to leave their homes. In addition, a 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. curfew would be mandated, with essential workers exempt.
Today, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed 36 new deaths and 3,944 new cases of COVID-19. To date, Public Health identified 348,336 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County and a total of 7,335 deaths. Upon further investigation, 131 cases reported earlier were not L.A. County residents.
Public Health cautions, that if this County surge continues at the current rate of increase, by December 6, less than three weeks from today, daily new cases could reach 4,000.
There are 1,188 people with COVID-19 currently hospitalized and 27% of these people are in the ICU. On November 1, the average daily number of people hospitalized for COVID-19 was 791.
Testing results are available for more than 3,440,000 individuals with 9% of all people testing positive. The County’s test positivity rate, or the percentage of tests that come back positive, has increased from an average of about 5.1% on November 8 to about 7.1% today. For comparison, the test positivity rate was 3.9% on November 1.
“Our deepest sympathies go out to everyone who is experiencing the sorrow of losing a loved one or friend to COVID-19. We wish you comfort and healing during this very difficult time,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “COVID-19 is relentless, and we have seen other communities and states who have few or no restrictions see devastating numbers of people becoming seriously ill and passing away. In Utah, the current case rate is currently over 1,200 per 100,000 people. In Indiana, the rate is 1,100 per 100,000 people. In California, the rate is around 250 per 100,000 people. I think we should each ask ourselves and those we care about to commit to making those changes that we know prevent a great deal of suffering and death from COVID-19. Change any plans for indoor gatherings that involve people not in your households. Avoid all activities where there will be crowds and where it is hard to maintain a distance of six feet from others. Wear face coverings inside and outside if you are with people who are older or who have underlying health conditions. And make sure to follow all the rules at businesses, worksites and retail establishments.”
The best way to celebrate Thanksgiving this year is to stay home and celebrate with people who live in your household. Connect with friends and family you don’t live with using all of the technology that allows us to see and hear each other from afar. If you do choose to gather, closely follow the guidance for private gatherings. Gather outdoors with no more than two other households, and no more than 15 people; wear face coverings unless eating or drinking and stay at least 6 feet apart. Limit the gathering to no more than two hours and do not share food or utensils.
While we made progress narrowing the gaps, as cases surge, we are beginning to see some higher rates of disproportionality. After the July surge through mid-September, we saw the gap between Latino/Latinx residents and other residents begin to close. At its lowest point, Latino/Latinx residents had case rates that were less than two times that of White residents. However, since mid-September, Latino/Latinx residents are experiencing case rates that are about two times that of White and African American/Black residents. Asian residents continue to have the lowest case rates.
During the July and August peak, the rates of hospitalization among Latino/Latinx residents was 30 hospitalizations per 100,000 people, three times that of White residents. This gap slowly closed from July through mid-September, when the hospitalization rate for Latino/Latinx residents fell to about 8 hospitalizations per 100,000 people, two times the rate of hospitalization for White residents. As of November 7, Latino/Latinx residents are now back up to almost 10.5 hospitalizations per 100,000 people, over two times the rate of White residents at 3.8 hospitalizations per 100,000 people.
We are seeing a downward trend in deaths across racial and ethnic groups, which has also brought a closing of the gap between the highest-income areas and the lowest income areas. On November 8, the death rate for the lowest income areas was 1.5 deaths per 100,000 people, slightly more than two times that of the highest income areas.
It is encouraging to see the downward trends on deaths and a closing of this gap; at the same time, we know that we are experiencing another surge in cases in the County, are aware that this could end up having devastating impacts on death rates, and worry that once again African American/Black and Latino/Latinx residents will be at highest risk.
Of the 36 new deaths reported today, 16 people that passed away were over the age of 80 years old, nine people who died were between the ages of 65 and 79 years old, eight people who died were between the ages of 50 and 64 years old, and two people who died were between the ages of 30 and 49 years old. Twenty-eight people who died had underlying health conditions including 12 people over the age of 80, 9 people between the ages of 65 and 79 years old, seven people between the ages of 50 and 64 years old, and one person between the ages of 30 and 49 years old. One death was reported by the City of Pasadena.
Ninety-three percent of the people who died from COVID-19 had underlying health conditions. Of those who died, information about race and ethnicity is available for 6,920 people (99 percent of the cases reported by Public Health); 52% of deaths occurred among Latino/Latinx residents, 23% among White residents, 14% among Asian residents, 10% among African American/Black residents, less than 1% among Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander residents and 1% among residents identifying with other races.
