Informing Children about COVID-19: Remain calm and reassuring, remember that children will react to both what you say and how you say it. Avoid language that might blame others and lead to stigma. Remember that viruses can make anyone sick, regardless of a person’s race or ethnicity. Pay attention to what children see or hear on television, radio, or online and provide information that is honest and accurate. Teach children everyday actions to reduce the spread of germs. Click here to learn more.

Stay informed: Check government sources such as CDC.gov and PublicHealth.LACounty.gov for accurate and up to date information. Sign up for NotifyLA, our city’s emergency notification system, at NotifyLA.org and follow @LAPublicHealth and @ReadyLA on Twitter to receive the latest updates. 

Plan ways to care for those who might be at a greater risk for serious complications: Learn more about those who are at risk for severe complications from COVID-19 illness. Older adults and persons who have underlying chronic medical conditions may be at risk for more serious complications. 

Create an emergency contact list: Include family, friends, neighbors, carpool drivers, healthcare providers, teachers, employers, the local public health department, and other community resources.

READ: STAY AT HOME ORDER

Angelenos are Safer at Home

To further combat the spread of COVID-19, Mayor Eric Garcetti has issued a “Safer at Home” emergency order — ordering all residents of the City of Los Angeles to stay inside their residences, and immediately limit all movement outside of their homes beyond what is absolutely necessary to take care of essential needs.

Residents of the City of Los Angeles are required to stay inside their homes unless they are engaged in certain “essential activities.” On those occasions when you are out of your home for necessary tasks, stay at least six feet away from others.

YOU CAN …

  • Go to the grocery, convenience or warehouse store
  • Go to the pharmacy to pick up medications and other healthcare necessities
  • Go to medical appointments (check with your doctor or provider first)
  • Go to a restaurant for take-out, delivery or drive-thru
  • Care or support a friend or family member
  • Take a walk, ride your bike, hike, jog and be in nature for exercise — just keep at least six feet between you and others in the community.
  • Walk your pets and take them to the veterinarian if necessary
  • Help someone to get necessary supplies

YOU SHOULD NOT…

  • Go to work unless you are providing essential services as defined by this Order
  • Visit friends and family if there is no urgent need
  • Maintain less than 6 feet of distance from others when you go out
  • Visit loved ones in the hospital, nursing home, skilled nursing facility, or other residential care facilities

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as a pandemic. On March 15th, Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti issued an Emergency Order which implemented measures to protect the public and contain the risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus. Additionally, on March 23rd the Mayor issued a temporary moratorium on evictions for non-payment of rent for tenants who are unable to pay rent due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On March 30th, the Mayor halted rent increases on occupied rental units that are subject to the City’s Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO). Effective March 31, 2020, the Los Angeles City Council passed Ordinance No. 20-0147-S19 expands protections for tenants during the local emergency in response to COVID-19. Together, these actions are designed to prevent unnecessary housing displacement and to prevent housed individuals from falling into homelessness. CONTINUE READING...

PPP Icon

The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll.
 
SBA will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities.
 
The loan will be fully forgiven if the funds are used for payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities (due to likely high subscription, at least 75% of the forgiven amount must have been used for payroll). Loan payments will also be deferred for six months. No collateral or personal guarantees are required. Neither the government nor lenders will charge small businesses any fees.
 
Forgiveness is based on the employer maintaining or quickly rehiring employees and maintaining salary levels. Forgiveness will be reduced if full-time headcount declines, or if salaries and wages decrease.
 
This loan has a maturity of 2 years and an interest rate of .5%.
 
Below is a list of banks that participate in PPP loans
