L.A. County Reports 60 New COVID-19 Deaths on Tuesday


Health officials reported 60 new deaths and 1,202 new Coronavirus cases on Tuesday.

So far, L.A. County has seen 57,118 positive cases of the virus that have led to 2,443 deaths.

“Each day, we are thinking of the many people who have lost their loved ones to the Coronavirus. We are deeply sorry for your loss, and we wish you peace through this very difficult time,” said Barbara Ferrer, director of Public Health. “We urge everyone, including the people across our community who are engaging in protest, to please care for each other by practicing physical distancing as much as possible and wearing a cloth face covering when around other people. These actions are important in preventing many more cases and hospitalizations from COVID-19. These actions can save lives.”

L.A. County last week allowed in-person dining at restaurants to resume and hair salons to reopen once the establishments are able to implement the required distancing and infection control directives. Bars and similar establishments remain closed.
