Los Angeles County Bars Closing: 20 New Deaths and 2,542 New Cases of Confirmed COVID-19 in Los Angeles County. Los Angeles County will heed Gov. Gavin Newsom’s directive and bars in Los Angeles County must close today.
The County Health Officer Order will be amended today to require that all bars, breweries, brew pubs, pubs, wineries and tasting rooms in L.A. County close unless they are offering sit-down dine-in meals. This includes closing bar areas in restaurants.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is guided by science and data and the key metrics monitored are showing concerning trends.
There has been a sharp increase in new cases and hospitalizations. The timing of these increases is in line with the reopening of key sectors, including bars, which are places where people remove their face covering to drink while they may be socializing with people not in their households.
“While it’s disappointing to take a step back on our economic recovery journey, it’s critical that we protect the health of our residents and protect the capacity in our healthcare system,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “I implore that our residents and businesses follow the Public Health directives that will keep us healthy, safe and on the pathway to recovery. Otherwise, we are quickly moving toward overwhelming our healthcare system and seeing even more devastating illness and death.”
The State-mandated closing comes as the Department of Public Health is reporting significant increases in COVID-19 hospitalizations and the testing positivity rate.
There are 1,717 people currently hospitalized, higher than the 1,350 to 1,450 daily hospitalizations seen in recent weeks. Testing results are available for over 1,056,000 individuals, with 9% of people testing positive. The cumulative positivity rate has increased from 8% to 9%, and the 7-day average of the daily positivity rate has increased from 5.8% two weeks ago to 8.7% today.
Today, Public Health has confirmed 20 new deaths and 2,542 new cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Fifteen people who died were over the age of 65 years old, four people who died were between the ages of 41 and 65 years old, and one person who died was between the ages of 18 and 40 years old. Thirteen people had underlying health conditions including 10 people over the age of 65 years old and three people between the ages of 41 to 65 years old. To date, Public Health has identified 97,894 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of LA County, and a total of 3,305 deaths. Ninety-four percent of people who died had underlying health conditions. Of those who died, information about race and ethnicity is available for 3,076 people (99 percent of the cases reported by Public Health); 43% of deaths occurred among Latino/Latinx residents, 27% among White residents, 17% among Asian residents, 11% among African American/Black residents, less than 1% among Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander residents and 1% among residents identifying with other races. Upon further investigation, 19 cases reported earlier were not LA County residents.
“Many are experiencing the pain and sadness of losing a loved one to COVID-19. Our deepest sympathies go out to all of you,” Ferrer said. “All of us must take immediate actions to stop spreading COVID-19 in our communities. L.A. County residents should stay home as much as possible, but when they are out and around others, it is very important to practice physical distancing and properly wear a cloth face covering at all times.”
Forty-one percent of cases are now among individuals between the ages of 18 and 40. While cases in this age range typically have low risk for serious illness or death, Public Health is concerned they may unknowingly infect parents, grandparents, and friends and family who have underlying health conditions and who are at greater risk for serious illness and death. Everyone must continue to follow physical distancing and infection control directives and wear a clean cloth face covering that securely covers both your nose and mouth when in contact with other people not in your household.

Beaches Closed, Fireworks Displays Prohibited During 4th of July Weekend to Prevent Spread of COVID-19
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is ordering L.A. County beaches closed from July 3 through July 6 at 5:00 a.m. to prevent dangerous crowding that results in the spread of deadly COVID-19.
For that same reason, the department is also prohibiting fireworks displays in the County this July 4th holiday weekend.
A modified Health Officer Order will be issued today.
During the holiday weekend, beaches will be totally closed to all recreational activities. Beach parking lots will be closed, as well.
Key metrics continue to show steep increases in community spread of COVID-19. Today, the department announced more than 2,900 new cases of COVID-19, the single largest one-day case count since the pandemic began. Data show increases in people testing positive for the virus and increases in hospitalizations as a result. Projections by the Department of Health Services show a marked increase in hospitalizations in the coming weeks, which could cause a surge in our healthcare system.
“Closing the beaches and prohibiting fireworks displays during this important summer holiday weekend was an incredibly difficult decision to make, but it’s the responsible decision to protect public health and protect our residents from a deadly virus. The Fourth of July holiday weekend typically means large crowds and gatherings to celebrate, a recipe for increased transmission of COVID-19,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “We all need to take this virus more seriously and residents and business owners must do their part. Physical distancing isn’t optional, wearing a face covering isn’t optional, spending time only with those you live with isn’t optional — these are requirements in the Health Officer Order and are the tools we have to protect each other, our families and those most vulnerable in our communities.”
All public beaches, piers, public beach parking lots, beach bike paths that traverse that sanded portion of the beach, and beach access points will be temporarily closed to the public as of 12:01 a.m. on July 3, 2020, until 5 a.m. on July 6, 2020. Long Beach has its own health department and this announcement does not apply to that city, at this time.

Countywide Curfew Alert!
Los Angeles County Clarifies Curfew Hours
Los Angeles County is under a countywide curfew that runs from 6 p.m. today, June 1, 2020, through 6 a.m. on Tuesday, June 2, 2020.
The County curfew applies to every municipality in Los Angeles County, but cities can implement stricter curfews based on their local needs.
The following cities have implemented stricter curfews that began earlier today:
Beverly Hills- 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.
Burbank- 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
Culver City- 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.
Glendale- 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
Long Beach- 1:00 p.m. (in the business district) 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. (citywide)
Santa Monica- 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.
West Hollywood- 4:00 p.m. and ending at sunrise
Please check with your local city for additional information.
Earlier today, the City of Glendale erroneously sent out a Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) alert with information about their local curfew that went to all residents in the County of Los Angeles — not just Glendale residents. We regret any confusion this may have caused.
HAIR SALONS, BARBERSHOPS AND IN-PERSON DINING TO REOPEN IMMEDIATELY WITH SAFEGUARDS IN PLACE
L.A. County Road to Recovery Moves Forward With State Approval
Hair salons and barbershops can reopen and in-person dining in restaurants can resume immediately with safeguards as Los Angeles County moves forward on the Roadmap to Recovery.
The State of California today approved the County’s request for a variance to state guidelines because the County has met the necessary public health thresholds to safely allow critical sectors of the economy and community to begin serving residents.
The County has demonstrated that it has controlled the spread of the virus, and is protecting residents and essential workers. Hospital testing and contact tracing capacity are appropriate in response to the outbreak. Los Angeles County is now in the advanced stages of Phase 2 of the State’s Resilience Roadmap.
This new phase of Los Angeles County’s reopening better aligns the County with neighboring counties, moving Southern California towards a regional recovery and supporting our service-oriented businesses, many of which are small and locally owned It’s a testament to the efforts of residents who adhered to the Safer At Home order, practiced physical distancing and wore cloth face coverings.
“This is an important milestone for Los Angeles County as we transition to being Safer at Work and Safer in our Communities and move forward in our path of reopening and recovery,” said Supervisor Kathryn Barger, Chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. “I am grateful to our state and local leaders for their partnership and collaboration in supporting the residents and businesses of Los Angeles County.”
However, this step forward doesn’t mean the threat of COVID-19 is gone. Residents must continue to practice physical distancing, wear cloth face coverings and follow public health guidelines in place.
If at any time, the County’s rate of infection and other key metrics return to unsafe numbers, the Department of Public Health can limit or close reopened sectors.
“We are only able to take this important step forward because everyone did their part. As we move along in our progress to reopen, let’s continue to keep our guard up. This highly contagious virus hasn’t disappeared; it is still out there, imposing a real threat to our communities. We cannot go back to business as usual,” said Supervisor Hilda L. Solis. “I urge everyone to continue doing their part by abiding by physical distancing and face covering requirements and by adhering to our new public health directives for reopened businesses. While our measure to reopen will provide economic relief to our workers and small businesses, extreme caution must be taken to prevent another spike in confirmed cases and fatalities. We must remember that our communities of color have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, and they will likely continue to bear the brunt if the coronavirus comes back with a vengeance.”
“This is a fine line that we’re walking in the County of Los Angeles, “said Supervisor Janice Hahn. “We are threading the needle between keeping the public safe and allowing our economy to reopen.”
“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and we all should do our part to help them stay open safely,” Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas said. “But we are absolutely not out of the woods yet, so we must continue to protect our health and those of everyone around us. Following public health directives is critical as we go back to work, dine in at our favorite restaurants, and make that long-awaited trip to the barber or salon.”
“Like my colleagues I am happy that so many will return to work and familiar activities. Still, I cannot overemphasize the importance of the public’s role in making these next steps a success,” said Supervisor Sheila Kuehl. “People must continue to physically distance, wear face covers, and wash their hands often. If not, our cases and hospitalizations are likely to rise dramatically, forcing us to consider reducing access in order to protect public health.”
Dining in restaurants and getting a haircut will be a different experience than we’re used to. Just as is required for all out-of-home activities, clients and staff will have to practice physical distancing and wear cloth face coverings. There will be limited capacity and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures.
Key, specific guidelines for customers at hair salons, barbershops and in-person restaurant dining are below:
Barbershops and hair salons
Physical distancing measures will be in place.
Employees and customers will be screened for symptoms, including cough and fever. Clients feeling unwell should reschedule their appointment.

Magazines, coffee and other amenities will not be available.

Everyone must continue to follow physical distancing and infection control protocols and wear a cloth face covering when in contact with others not in your household.

The new openings are part of a phased progression guiding the safe resumption of public life in Los Angeles County, including the resumption and reopenings that include: in-person faith-based services, in-store shopping at retail stores, bike paths, drive-in movies and other recreational pursuits. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health will amend its Health Officer Order accordingly.
