As of the preparation of this report on February 23, 2022, Los Angeles County Public Health Department has reported 24,927 (+514) confirmed cases of COVID-19 within the City of Carson, with 2,785,449 (+245,374) cases within Los Angeles County (which includes cases reported by the Long Beach and Pasadena Health Departments).
