Safer at Home Order in Los Angeles and Across California

Mayor Garcetti and Department of Public Health Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer announced stronger “Safer at Home” orders, instructing Angelenos to stay at home for all but essential services. This announcement orders the closure of nonessential stores, playgrounds, and bans on gatherings of 10 or more people, effective at 11:59PM on Thursday, March 19th. Shortly after, Governor Newsom ordered all Californians to stay home except for essential purposes.

Some things you can do:

  • Take a walk outside
  • Shop for essential items at the grocery store
  • Order take-out or delivery
  • Commute to jobs deemed essential
