Remember to enjoy Labor Day safely, COVID-19 is still very active in our community. LA County has confirmed that trends from previous holiday weekends have shown rapid increases in the number of COVID-19 cases throughout the county. Keep yourself and the Glendale community safe by following these steps:
Only gather with members of your household this holiday weekend – there’s so much to do together in our beautiful county – explore a trail or have a picnic at one of our beautiful beaches early in the day.
If you are outside of your home and around others, please wear a cloth face covering.
Always use your own utensils, cups, food, drinks – do not share with others.
Avoid crowds and be flexible and willing to change plans or move locations if you find yourself in a crowded area. If you find yourself near others, maintain 6 feet of distance.
Avoid confined spaces, especially places where physical distancing or staying more than 3 steps away from others isn’t possible, and people aren’t wearing face coverings.
And if you are sick (or have been exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19), please isolate or quarantine as appropriate.
