The City of West Hollywood is urging community members to immediately follow the LA County Department of Public Health’s Safer at Home Order, which went into effect last night, Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.
The Order will remain in effect until April 19, 2020, and may be extended. The Order called upon all individuals living in the State of California to stay home in order to reduce transmission of coronavirus.
The City of West Hollywood is in the jurisdiction of Los Angeles County; community members in West Hollywood should immediately follow the Order.
The purpose of the Order is to further restrict and limit the gathering of persons and require the closure of malls, children’s playgrounds, and non-essential retail businesses in an effort to stem and slow the spread of COVID-19 in the region.
Grocery stores, restaurants offering delivery and pickup, pharmacies, and hardware stores will remain open. Details and information are in the Order, which is accessible at the Public Health website (PDF download) at: http://file.lacounty.gov/SDSInter/lac/1070029_COVID-19_SaferAtHome_HealthOfficerOrder_20200319_Signed.pdf.
