Culver City continues to cooperate with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to respond to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Los Angeles County.
On March 11, 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak was characterized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). A Proclamation of Local Emergency in Culver City was signed on March 14, 2020 and ratified by City Council on March 18, 2020. Since, the City has issued a public order and 12 supplements.
On May 22, 2020, the City Manager issued the 14th Supplement to Public Order, allowing the following, with certain restrictions:
- lower-risk indoor retailers in shopping malls to open for curbside pick-up or delivery service
- vehicle-based parades
On May 20, 2020, the City Manager issued the 13th Supplement to Public Order, which allows pet grooming and pet training businesses to reopen using curbside drop-off/pick-up or walk-up; mobile pet grooming and/or pet training businesses to operate; and car wash businesses to reopen effective immediately. Businesses must follow all public health protocols contained in the order.
On May 19, 2020, the City Manager issued the 12th Supplement to Public Order, consistent with the direction given by City Council at the May 18th City Council meeting. It (1) extends the Residential Tenant and Commercial Tenant Eviction Moratoria (CTEM) to August 31, 2020 or the end of the Local Emergency, whichever occurs earlier; (2) excludes from the CTEM multi-national companies, publicly traded companies, or companies that employ 200 or more employees; and (3) reduces the grace period for the repayment of Back Rent from 12 months to 6 months for commercial tenants that have 10 or more, but less than 200, employees.
On May 14, 2020, the City Manager issued a new Public Order. Here's what it includes:
- allows lower-risk businesses and low-contact outdoor recreational facilities to re-open in Culver City.
- requires face coverings to be worn in public.
- extends the “Stay at Home” Public Order until further notice. The City plans to continue to modify the order over time to allow a gradual and safe re-opening in alignment with the recommendations from Public Health.
On May 7, 2020, the City Manager issued the 10th Supplement to Public Order, which permits the following types of businesses to re-open for curbside pick-up only, with adherence to distancing and infection control protocols, beginning on Friday, May 8, 2020:
- toy stores
- music stores
- clothing stores, and
- sporting goods stores.
In addition, auto dealership showrooms are permitted to open for sales beginning Friday, May 8, 2020 with adherence to distancing and infection control protocols. For more details about reopening, see the Recovery web page.
Key Points to Keep in Mind
- The risk of COVID-19 remains high. Follow infection control practices at all times.
- Everyone must continue to practice physical distancing of at least six feet apart and wear a clean cloth face covering that securely covers both your nose and mouth when around people outside of your household. More information on cloth face coverings.
- Acceptable, reusable face covering options for the general public include: bandanas, neck gaiters, homemade face coverings, scarves, tightly woven fabric (such as cotton t-shirts and some types of towels).
The CDC provides instructions on its website for how to make several types of homemade face coverings, including from a t-shirt and a bandana without any sewing required. A sampling of manufacturers selling face coverings is also available.
- Face Coverings while exercising (e.g., walking, biking, jogging): It is suggested that a face covering be carried with you while exercising. Place the face covering over your nose and mouth while passing by others.
- Face Coverings for Children: Children under the age of 2 should NOT wear cloth face coverings. Those between the ages of 2-8 should use them under adult supervision to ensure that the child can breath safely and to avoid choking or suffocation. Children with breathing problems should not wear a face covering.
- The City Manager issued a supplemental Public Order calling on residents of the City to stay in their residences and limit all activities outside of their homes beyond what is necessary for essential tasks. Visit the "Safer at Home" Frequently Asked Questions page.
- When outside of your home, practice social distancing. Maintain a minimum physical distance of 6 feet between yourself and others.
- If you are mildly sick, stay home for at least 7 days or until 72 hours after being fever free, whichever is longer. Call your doctor if you are concerned and/or your symptoms worsen.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
- More things you can do to prevent illness.
- There is no shortage of food or home supplies.
