Eight of today’s new deaths were of individuals over the age of 80, with 11 people between the ages of 65 and 79 lost to the virus. Eight individuals who died were between 50 and 64 years years of age, with one dying between ages 30 and 49, and one between the ages of 18 and 29.

Today, Public Heath Director Barbara Ferrer called for continued adherence to safety protocols, noting that it remains important, even as the County heats up. “When we get vaccinated, wear face coverings, keep our distance, and implement safeguards at workplaces, our actions minimize transmission and prevent severe health outcomes,” she said.

Currently, L.A. County is in the Orange tier of California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, with Covid-19 vaccines available to all residents 16 and older.
