As the LA County COVID-19 cases are nearing 20,000, we are reminded about the importance of maintaining safety precautions in the City of Lynwood. In Lynwood, we now have 155 confirmed cases.The pandemic is striking all age groups–particularly the elderly but the people who are most at risk are those with underlying medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, cancer and chronic illnesses.
The City of Lynwood has been aggressive in establishing rules that our residents should follow–including maintaining proper social distance (of six feet between fellow residents), having proper hygiene (wash your hands and keeping your hands from your face) and have closed city parks and non-essential businesses. The City also issued emergency orders that anyone out in public must wear masks.
On Thursday (April 23), the City Council adopted an Urgency Ordinance that prevents hotel and motel owners from contracting with Los Angeles County to use their units to house homeless individuals during the COVID-19 crisis without prior approval from the City.
#WeAreLynwood. Let’s work together to keep all of us safe.
