Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Town Hall | LA County's COVID-19 Response

May 18

The current stay-at-home order issued by LA County is due to end on May 15.  Restless Southern Californians welcome re-entry to their neighborhoods and resuming daily living activities, including going back to work. Though, key questions remain: Will social distancing and the wearing of masks continue? Will there be ample testing available? 

Currently, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order has no end date. A few California counties are due to rescind their lockdown orders in late April. Others will comply with the order until it is rescinded. Other US cities, such as New York, are considering a multi-phase reopening strategy. What’s the plan for LA County?  

Joining us for this webinar are Los Angeles County Supervisor (5th District) and Board Chair Kathryn Barger, and Dr. Barbara Ferrer Director, LA County Dept. of Public Health.  The webinar will be moderated by local journalist and Los Angeles magazine contributor, Jon Regardie.
