STAY AT HOME ORDER

Until further notice, the State of California remains under a STAY AT HOME ORDER.

 

All residents not employed in "critical infrastructure" fields are ordered to stay at home except for essential needs.

YOU CAN:

  • Go to the grocery, convenience or warehouse store.

  • Go to the pharmacy to pick up medications and other healthcare necessities.

  • Go to medical appointments (check with your doctor or provider first).

  • Go to a restaurant for take-out, delivery or drive-thru.

  • Care or support a friend or family member.

  • Take a walk, ride your bike, hike, jog and be in nature for exercise — just keep at least six feet between you and others in the community.

  • Walk your pets and take them to the veterinarian if necessary.

  • Help someone to get necessary supplies.

YOU SHOULD NOT:

  • Go to work unless you are providing essential services as defined by this Order.

  • Visit friends and family if there is no urgent need.

  • Maintain less than 6 feet of distance from others when you go out.

  • Visit loved ones in the hospital, nursing home, skilled nursing facility, or other residential care facility.

 

WHAT TO DO IF YOU FEEL SICK

During the current Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) outbreak it is likely that many people with cold and flu-like symptoms have COVID-19.

 

Most people do not need to see a doctor or get a test for COVID-19 because they will have a mild illness and get better at home.

 

However, people should call their doctor early if they are 65 years and older, pregnant, or have a health problem such as a chronic disease or a weak immune system, because they are at higher risk of serious illness.

This guidance provides home care instructions for people with symptoms of COVID-19 which include fever, cough, shortness of breath or trouble breathing. Symptoms may also include chills, body aches, sore throat, headache, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, and runny nose.

 

HOME CARE

 

There is no specific treatment for the virus that causes COVID-19. Here are steps that you can take to help you get better:

• Rest

• Drink plenty of fluids

• Take acetaminophen (Tylenol®) to reduce fever and pain.

• Note that children younger than age 2 should not be given any over-the-counter cold medications without first speaking with a doctor.

• Note that these medicines do not “cure” the illness and do not stop you from spreading germs.

 

SEEKING MEDICAL CARE

 

Seek prompt medical care if your symptoms get worse (e.g. difficulty breathing). Call your doctor early if you are at higher risk of serious illness. If you need assistance finding a medical provider or mental health services, please call 2-1-1.

 

CALL AHEAD BEFORE VISITING YOUR DOCTOR!  You may be able to get advice by phone, including discussing with your doctor if you need to be examined or tested. If you do visit a healthcare facility, put on a mask before you enter to protect others from catching an infection from you. It is recommended that you seek medical care for serious symptoms, such as: difficulty breathing, can't keep fluids down, dehydration or confusion.

SCHEDULE A COVID-19 TEST

At this time, testing is limited in Los Angeles. The city is  working to expand testing as quickly as possible to provide this service to all Angelenos who need it.

For the moment, these tests are strictly limited to residents of Los Angeles who are in the most high-risk categories and most vulnerable.

Individuals eligible for testing at this time include:

  • Those with symptoms who are 65 and older

  • Those with symptoms who have underlying chronic health conditions

  • Those who are subject to a mandatory 14 day quarantine period due to a confirmed COVID-19 exposure (with more than 7 days of quarantine remaining)
