Culver City Releases Statement on Spread of Coronavirus
The Culver City Real Estate area—along with the cities of Malibu, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and West Hollywood—released a joint statement earlier this week asking residents to work to prevent spread of the new coronavirus. The five Westside cities often work together on public safety matters, disaster response, large-scale public events, and emergency preparedness.
Martin Feinberg, Realtor, also noted that the joint joint news release stated that all Westside cities are “at-the-ready for local action” if the county or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend it.
As of Thursday, 11 Los Angeles County residents had contracted the Coronavirus, with the county going from no cases to 11 in less than three days. However, each case has been linked to travel outside of the country rather than local community transmission.
The news release went also stated, “Together, and within our local jurisdictions, the Westside cities of Beverly Hills, Culver City, Malibu, Santa Monica, and West Hollywood undergo emergency management training and meet regularly in preparation for a range of emergency scenarios. Each city, in standard preparation for any emergency or disaster, has robust plans in place for continuity of government services and business operations.”
The five Westside cities are asking residents to take the following precautions to stop the spread of the Coronavirus:
- Avoid / Stay away from sick people;
- Wash your hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand cleaner;
- Keep hands away from eyes, nose, and mouth;
- Disinfect public counters, desks, common areas, phones, keyboards, etc.;
- Use disinfectant wipes identified for use against Influenza A&B and Coronaviruses;
- If you have symptoms (fever, cough, vomiting, difficulty breathing) stay home and call your doctor;
- Remain home until you have spoken with your doctor or health provider and are cleared to return to work; and
- Cover your coughs and sneezes.
The Los Angeles County Public Health Department has reminded residents that “At this time, there is no immediate threat to the general public and no special precautions are required. Los Angeles County residents, students, workers, and visitors are encouraged to engage in their regular activities and practice good public health hygiene, as this is the height of flu season across the County.”
Local listing agent Martin Feinberg encourages anyone looking for further updates and information about the coronavirus or other important public health information in multiple languages to visit the Los Angeles County Public Health website and the CDC website.
