STAY AT HOME ORDER

STAGE II: Starting May 26, the City and County of Los Angeles will maintain Stage II and continue the process of slow and gradual adjustments to the Safer at Home order. Physical distancing, face coverings and other safety measures will remain in place and will be even more important to ensure we do not create a surge of infections. 

YOU CAN:

  • Go to retail stores and maintain social distancing with stores maintaining 50% capacity or less.

  • Go to car dealership showrooms open for sales with adherences to distancing and cleaning and infection control protocol.

  • Go to trails, trailhead parks and golf courses as long as activities adhere to distancing and cleaning and infection control protocol, including the wearing of face coverings.

  • 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 services as defined by this Order.

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

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.

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.

More information is available from the County Public Health Office.

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.

 

At this time, testing is available to all Los Angeles County residents.
