City of Beverly Hills Response to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The City continues to receive updates from and participate in planning regarding the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) with both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH). The City is being proactive and is in regular communication with our local and national partners to coordinate potential response.

The City's Emergency Operations Center is open each day at the highest level and emergency personnel are well trained and ready to respond.

To ensure the continued health and safety of our community, the City of Beverly Hills has provided some tips for practicing good hygiene and staying healthy such as:

  • Keep touchpoints clean – these are places that many people touch; such as door handles, counters, phones, keyboards, remote controls, etc.
  • Wash your hands– wash many times during the day, for at least 20 seconds. If you can't wash your hands, use hand sanitizer.
  • Maintain good personal hygiene and avoid touching your face.

Avoid contact with people who are sick or if you feel sick stay home. Also, consider reducing unnecessary close contact with others by avoiding handshakes or hugs.

 

 The public is reminded to keep in mind these key points regarding the current status of the Novel Coronavirus in the United States:

  • The term coronavirus refers to a family of viruses of which the COVID-19 is a part.
  • View the CDC Page on Current Cases in the United States, the CDC FAQ Sheet and view the LACPH FAQ Sheet.
  • The United States has implemented strict quarantine and monitoring of those returning to the United States.
  • The City continues to plan for all emergencies and specifically a potential pandemic causing a need to social distance.

This is an evolving situation and people are reminded to be prepared for any emergency and to stock up on food, water, and other basic necessities.

Currently, the City is asking the business community to voluntarily comply with the ordinance. This will allow our valuable BHPD resources to be applied towards more vital first-responder needs.

Although this is an unprecedented emergency situation, we believe the efforts of the City's BHPD and BHFD maintain a safe environment where boarding windows is not necessary. Boarding up business windows is not in compliance with the following City Municipal Codes: BHMC Section 5-7-4, BHMC Section 10-3-3007 and BHMC Sections 5-7-3. Any questions regarding this can be directed to 310-285-1119.
The City of Beverly Hills works in partnership with local, state and federal health officials (including the CDC and LA County Department of Public Health) to receive guidance and coordinate response.
Yes. The City's emergency personnel are trained and capable to respond to any emerging disease, including the Novel Coronavirus, and implement appropriate healthcare protocols.
The best way to stay healthy is eating well and practicing good hygiene such as frequently washing your hands and utilizing hand sanitizer, keeping a distance between anyone who is coughing or sneezing, avoiding touching the face and staying home if you feel unwell.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), symptoms could appear approximately 2-14 days after exposure such as fever, cough and shortness of breath. The CDC advises anyone who is experiencing these symptoms that has either been in close contact with a person known to have Novel Coronavirus or have recently traveled from an area with widespread or ongoing community spread to contact their doctor.
If you are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19, you must remain at home at all times. Stay home for at least seven days since your first symptom appeared and at least three days after your fever has gone away (without the aid of any medication)-this could mean your self isolation goes beyond seven days in order to be fully recovered. Notify your caretakers, family or anyone you had close contact with if you have tested positive for COVID-19. Stay hydrated and get plenty of rest; if you notice symptoms getting worse or if you are at high risk (age 65 or older, have an underlying health condition or are pregnant), call your doctor immediately. Additional information can be found by visiting LA County's Fact Sheet. Also, view the CDC Fact Sheet Fact Sheet.
If you've come in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you must stay home for at least 14 days from when you were last in contact with the infected person. Separate yourself from others in your home and have any essential items delivered to your door, keeping at least six feet from one another. Monitor your health for symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath or trouble breathing-if you are experiencing any of these symptoms you must follow the isolation orders for someone presumed positive for COVID-19. For more information, view LA County's Fact Sheet.
Los Angeles County is now providing access to free COVID-19 testing for County residents experiencing symptoms of the virus. There are drive-through and walk-up testing sites operating throughout the County. When residents book an appointment, they will receive a confirmation with the date, time, and specific location of the test. County residents who are in the highest-risk categories are eligible for same day or next day testing. This includes those individuals with COVID-19 symptoms who are 65 or older or have underlying health conditions. The County is currently working on expanding this network and increasing testing capacity. For information and appointments, visit LA County's testing website. Additionally, you may also contact your medical provider for COVID-19 testing information.
Currently, those at greatest risk of infection are persons who have had prolonged, unprotected close contact with a patient with symptomatic, confirmed Novel Coronavirus and those who live in or have recently been to areas with sustained transmission. Additionally, vulnerable populations such as the elderly or those with pre-existing conditions such as asthma or heart disease are most at risk.
As of March 13, all BHUSD schools have been physically shut down through the remainder of the school year. More information can be found by visiting http://www.bhusd.org.
Below are some tips the CDC recommends:
  • Call to check in on any neighbors or elderly community members and see whether they need any assistance.
  • Know what medications your loved one is taking and see if you can help them have extra on hand.
  • Monitor food and other medical supplies (oxygen, incontinence, dialysis, wound care) needed and create a back-up plan.
  • Stock up on non-perishable food to have on hand in your home to minimize trips to stores.
  • If you care for a loved one living in a care facility, monitor the situation, ask about the health of the other residents frequently and know the protocol if there is an outbreak.
The COVID-19 Kindness Task Force, spearheaded by former Mayor John Mirisch and City Council, comprises of all community volunteers coming together to help each other, including seniors and the most vulnerable, during this time of crisis. For more information regarding volunteer opportunities and more, visit beverlyhills.org/kindnesstaskforce.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The LA County Department of Public Health has issued public guidance on the use of face coverings. Data has shown that many who are positive for COVID-19 are not symptomatic, therefore it is advised to wear non-medical face coverings during any essential trips to avoid spreading the virus to the most vulnerable. A face covering does not substitute social distancing and staying home is still the best thing to do as well as practicing good hygiene. It is also recommended that City employees also wear face coverings if engaging with the public. To see LA County's guidance on face coverings, view their fact sheet HERE.
At this time, the CDC recommends that people reconsider traveling abroad and domestically at this time due to the global impact of Novel Coronavirus. Check the CDC's webpage (cdc.gov) for up-to-date recommendations before you travel. Additionally, review any travel advisories by visiting travel.state.gov.
