What we know:

COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath — and may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure.

Person-to-person spread mainly occurs via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes (similar to how influenza and other respiratory pathogens spread).

People are thought to be most contagious when they are most ill. People who are not symptomatic can also be contagious.

Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) do not recommend the use of personal face masks by individuals who have not had prolonged exposure to individuals who have been identified as at-risk.

For more information please use verified sources such as:

Ways to Help Your Fellow Angelenos

As we keep our distance to stay safe, we must otherwise come together as a community to help those of us most in need. The Angeleno Fund will provide direct financial assistance for families experiencing extreme financial hardship, many of whom are immigrants or independent workers who will not qualify for other benefits.

As we undertake these efforts together, many Angelenos are eager to know what they can do to help. For those wishing to make monetary donations, the Mayor’s Fund for LA, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has set up a website for donations. You can find out more about priorities for this funding here.

  • County of LA – Request for Quotes for Medical Shelter Rooms (3/30/2020)We’re opening thousands of emergency shelter beds to help get homeless Angelenos indoors more quickly. On Friday, we opened five additional emergency shelters at our City’s rec centers, bringing the total to 13 across L.A. We have more than 500 camper trailers on their way from the State, and we’re working with LAHSA and state and local partners to open 900 motel and hotel rooms for isolation and quarantine for homeless Angelenos who are at the highest risk for COVID-19. If other motels and hotels want to step up and help, they can sign up here.
  • City of LA – LA Protects: Help Make Protective Gear for Angelenos (3/26/2020)The goal of L.A. Protects is to work with local manufacturers – who are not already in the protective gear supply chain – to produce 5 million non-medical masks, which can be used by workers in essential sectors, non-medical staff in hospitals, and medical patients across the City of Los Angeles. Our partner Kaiser Permanente developed the design specifications for the non-medical masks. Our partner Reformation is providing their expertise in garment and apparel production by providing quality assurance checks and building out funding and in-kind support for this initiative.
  • City of LAEmergency Medical Corps (3/25/2020)

Mayor Garcetti launched the City of Los Angeles Emergency Medical Corps, using an easy-to-use portal where medical professionals can submit their information and sign up to help. The City of Los Angeles has a need for medical professionals to support a surge in medical cases across Los Angeles due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please sign up today to be considered for both paid and pro-bono opportunities coming available at this time.

Formed with East LA Community Corporation and Public Counsel, this fund will provide $400 in direct cash to street vendors who cannot access government resources. The United Way Pandemic Relief Fund has donated $50,000 to seed this fund. You can help street vendors by donating to the United Way Pandemic Relief Fund (note that your donation is for “street vendors” in the company affiliation box) or donate to the GoFundMe Emergency Fund led by Vendedores en Accion (VEA).

Volunteer Opportunities

The Red Cross also strongly urges healthy, eligible individuals to give blood or platelets to help maintain a sufficient blood supply and prevent shortages. The Red Cross is taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our volunteers and employees and ensuring safety protocols are in place at blood drives and all worksites to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

    • 1) Donate Blood – The Red Cross now faces a severe blood shortage due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations during this coronavirus outbreak. Healthy individuals are needed now to donate to help patients including victims of car accidents and other emergencies, or patients suffering from cancer requiring lifesaving blood.

    • 2) Volunteer to help distribute free meals – Hundreds of volunteers are needed every weekday morning starting March 18 to help the Red Cross, LA County Office of Emergency Management and the LAUSD serve prepared meals to families and students affected by school closures.

Donate to food banks and volunteer to ensure our most vulnerable populations are still able to provide for their families. Much needed items include canned goods, peanut butter, toilet paper, antibacterial cleansers, and financial contributions.

One of the most important things you can do for our Los Angeles community is to stay home. All L.A. Works non-essential volunteer opportunities have been suspended, however many essential services still need to continue.  The hungry still need food. The isolated still need companionship. We want to let you know how to stay healthy and still come together (figuratively!) to support Los Angeles. Please consider virtual volunteer opportunities to help our non-profits.

            SOVA provides free groceries and an array of supportive services to over 7,000
individuals of all ages, ethnicities, and religions each month. They are looking for
volunteers to help distribute food. For more information, contact Felice Resnick at
