Long Beach Reports 10th Death From COVID-19

by Contributing Editor

Long Beach reported its 10th death from COVID-19 Saturday, a woman in her 70s with underlying health conditions.

The city now has 332 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. That number includes 48 Long Beach residents who are hospitalized and approximately 140 cases where people have recovered, Mayor Robert Garcia said.

All ten fatalities had underlying health conditions, and seven were associated with long-term care facilities.

Two victims were in their 50s, two were in their 60s, one was in their 70s, and five were over 80 years old. Three victims were men and seven were women.

No further details are being provided.

Long Beach has its own health department, but works closely with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

The city has extended its stay-at-home order through May 15, as has the county of Los Angeles. The Long Beach Police Department has the authority to issue fines of not less than $50 nor more than $1,000 for those who violate the order, officials said.

All Long Beach parks, including open spaces, will be closed on Easter Sunday. The city’s rapid assessment clinic located at the Long Beach City College Pacific Coast Campus will operate from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, with limited hours in observance of the holiday.
