Three Public Handwashing Stations Installed

The City has installed 3 handwashing stations along Venice Boulevard under the 405 Freeway to provide an opportunity for our unhoused community to wash their hands frequently, in accordance with the advice of public health officials.
State of California public health officials have issued new guidance, including the following new recommendations:

Individuals should avoid non-essential gatherings.
Any gathering should be limited to no more than 50 people.
If you are holding a smaller event (less than 50 people), implement social distancing, which means keeping six feet of space or more between people.
For those who are at higher risk of serious illness (older adults, those with underlying medical conditions, and pregnant women), gatherings should be limited to no more than 10 people who are also following social distancing guidelines (keeping six feet or more of space between individuals). This includes gatherings at retirement facilitates, assisted living facilities, and support groups.
Gatherings are defined as any event or convening that brings together people in a single room or single space at the same time, such as an auditorium, stadium arena, large conference room, meeting hall, cafeteria or any other indoor or outdoor space.
Previous recommendations from public health officials remain:

Stay home when you are sick.
People with underlying health conditions, pregnant women and the elderly should practice social distancing by avoid non-essential travel, public events, community gatherings, and indoor venues.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Limit close contact, like kissing and sharing cups or utensils, with people who are sick.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
Facemasks are most effective when used appropriately by health care workers and those directly caring for people who are sick and by people who are sick.
Get a flu immunization if you have not done so this season.
