PREVIOUS: Los Angeles residents may have trudged through the Thanksgiving holiday during the Covid-19 pandemic, but Los Angeles Public Health Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer said Saturday that the county is far from clear.

During a press conference, Ferrer confirmed a total of 3,143 new Covid-19 cases, as well as 19 deaths and 1,951 hospital stays. The recent number of coronavirus cases may be lower than in the past few weeks as a number of test centers across the county have closed for Thanksgiving. According to Ferrer, Angelenos can expect the number of cases to rise when the testing facilities reopen in the coming week.

The latest statistics come a day after Los Angeles officials issued another home security order on Friday. Starting Monday, November 30th through December 20, Los Angeles residents should stay indoors as much as possible and limit their exposure to people outside their immediate households whenever possible.

“If we really care about each other, and we do care about the key people who take risks every day, we don’t need to meet anyone outside of our immediate household, at least for the immediate future,” advised Ferrer.

Ferrer also announced that various companies will have to adhere to guidelines for maximum customer capacity in the coming weeks. Non-essential services can only be opened to a maximum capacity of 20% and major retail stores to a maximum capacity of 35%, making this holiday shopping season a challenge for customers and employees.

While Angelenos may be tempted to go to malls and celebrate the various winter holidays that are coming, doing so could put many family members at risk. She added that failure to comply with government orders, masking and socially distancing ordinances can lead to tragic results.

“Dead people don’t get a second chance,” she said.

To date, Los Angeles County has identified a total of 390,891 Covid-19 cases and 7,623 deaths related to the coronavirus.
