LA County Remains in `High’ COVID Activity Category


Despite continued drops in COVID-19 cases and hospital admission rates, Los Angeles County will remain in the federal government’s “high” virus activity category for another week, with numbers released Thursday putting the county just high enough to prevent a move into the less-severe “medium” rank.

Under metrics developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a county is considered in a “high” activity category if its average daily rate of COVID-related hospital admissions tops 10 per 100,000 residents. The CDC updates the numbers every Thursday.

County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said over the past week that the hospital admission number was trending downward, and indicated the county could be moved into the “medium” category. She said numbers posted by the CDC on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were all low enough to warrant the move to “medium.”
