SUBJECT:
Title
COVID-19 UPDATE (CITY COUNCIL)

I. SUMMARY

During this unprecedented pandemic, the City of Carson has had to adhere to Federal, State and County Executive orders, which helped slow the spread of the virus but it did so by shutting down our local businesses and severely impacting our economy. Our residents and businesses were directed by the State to follow stay-at-home orders, with the exception of employees who were determined to have an essential job or for residents to shop for essential needs. For the first time in its incorporated history, the City was not allowed to operate in any capacity outside of health measures dictated by the Federal, State and County governments.
As of the preparation of this report on September 13, 2021, Los Angeles County Public Health Department has reported 11,638 confirmed cases of COVID-19 within the City of Carson, with 1,427,817 cases within Los Angeles County (which includes cases reported by the Long Beach and Pasadena Health Departments).
