Current Status of the Novel Coronavirus

Los Angeles County offers a map-based dashboards page with information regarding COVID-19. From park closures to confirmed cases of COVID-19, these tools and dashboards map Los Angeles County's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Key Points to Keep in Mind

  • There is no shortage of food or home supplies.
  • 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 absolutely necessary for essential tasks. Visit the "Safer at Home" Frequently Asked Questions page for more information. 
  • When outside of your home, practice social distancing (i.e. keep at least six feet between yourself and people from other households).
  • If you are mildly sick, stay home for at least seven days or until 72 hours after being fever free, whichever is longer. Call your doctor if you are concerned and/or your symptoms worsen. Individuals who are elderly, have underlying health conditions or pregnant should consider contacting their providers earlier when they are sick.
  • Please consider checking on your older neighbors or those with underlying health conditions. There are ways to let people know you care while keeping a safe distance (e.g., a phone call, a text, a note under their door to make sure they have everything they need). Self-isolation doesn't need to mean loneliness. We are all in this together.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • More things you can do to prevent illness.

Safety Guidelines for Construction Sites

On April 1, 2020, the City issued new guidelines for construction sites to slow the spread of COVID-19. Construction industry employers are required to develop a comprehensive COVID-19 exposure control plan, which includes control measures such as social distancing, symptom checking, hygiene, decontamination procedures, and training. Construction sites must work to prevent any onsite worker from contracting COVID-19 by completing an exposure control plan and implementing various control practices. Failure to comply with the City’s guidance may result in withheld inspections or shutting down the construction site until corrected. Complaints about construction activity not adhering to the guidelines should be made via email or by phone to the City’s Coronavirus Hotline at (310) 253-6890. 

Waivers and Rule Changes to Assist Businesses

The City Order issued on March 20, 2020 includes the following provisions to assist businesses:

  • Extension of the deadline for submission of Culver City business taxes approximately 60 days to June 1, 2020.
  • Wavier of outdoor dining license fees
  • Waiver of valet parking license fees
  • In order to allow businesses to communicate they are open for pick-up and/or delivery of food, applicable CCMC restrictions related to outdoor business signage (including “sandwich board” signs and temporary banners) are suspended. All signs must be placed preferably on private property or in such a manner to allow for pedestrian access along the public right-of-way.
  • Moratorium on commercial tenant evictions
  • Deferment for the submission of Culver City business taxes until June 1, 2020
