The City of Palmdale is closely monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), a disease that produces symptoms similar to the flu or pneumonia.
The World Health Organization called the coronavirus situation a pandemic on March 11, 2020. On March 12, 2020, the City of Palmdale declared a state of emergency to gain better access to the tools and resources needed to fulfill the mission of protecting residents while carrying out the functions of City government. (See proclamation). Los Angeles County and the State of California have also declared states of emergency.
For updates on the number of coronavirus cases in Los Angeles County, please visit Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
Key preventative steps:
- Stay at home when sick.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Put 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.
- Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
- CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people outside of their household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
- Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.
- Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
