Today, Public Health director Barbara Ferrer encouraged residents to celebrate Memorial Day safely. “We are all glad this Memorial Day will look so different from last Memorial Day – it’s such a relief for so many of us to be able to gather with family and friends again,” she said. “If you’re celebrating with someone elderly and they haven’t been vaccinated, celebrate safely outdoors with masks and distancing or virtually. I encourage everyone who hasn’t been vaccinated yet, to make time to get vaccinated. The vaccine provides the best protection and is keeping transmission in L.A. County low.”
