This is what you often hear as flattening the curve.”Locally there are just two accounts in Pasadena.So far, only one death from coronavirus has been reported in Los Angeles County.Ferrer thanked residents for their efforts avoiding large gatherings, remaining home and distancing themselves from others. She noted, however, that the mandates don’t mean people cannot leave their homes.“Everyone should remain at home as much as possible,” she said. “You should, however, feel free to take a walk, a hike, a run — just not with a group of people.”While again stressing the heightened danger of the virus to people over 65, she hailed efforts by grocery stores to provide them with specialized times to shop. But she cautioned, “The safest option for all seniors is to have food and medicine and essential services delivered to them in their homes.”County Supervisor Hilda Solis said the county is working to provide additional protection for the homeless in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak. As part of that effort, the county plans to extend its winter shelter program — which normally ends March 31 — until the end of April.Solis said it is “more urgent than ever to expand our capacity” to provide housing, noting that there are 7,000 interim housing beds in place, and the county is “working to put thousands more online over the next few weeks and months.”The county is also continuing to evaluate sites that can be used for temporary housing facilities.The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday reviewed a variety of measures aimed at providing services for the homeless in light of the virus. The council approved a temporary measure that will allow the homeless to keep their tents in place during daytime hours. The city normally requires the tents to be taken down during the day.The city and the county have both issued emergency moratoriums on residential and commercial evictions, providing protections for residents who may be unable to pay their rent on time due to work lost because of widespread business closures.Under the moratorium, tenants would be given up to six months to repay missed rent.City and county officials have both insisted they are working to provide financial relief for businesses that have been forced to close because of the virus. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti on Tuesday announced an $11 million loan program, while county officials said they are working to help businesses apply for emergency loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration.“While the Small Business Administration is not at the county level, we will be working with state and federal representatives and our partner agencies,” county Supervisor Kathryn Barger said Tuesday. “We do not want any business to fall through the cracks.”On Wednesday morning, California health officials reported a total of 598 coronavirus cases statewide and 13 deaths.
