The City of Culver City mourns the loss of our residents who have passed away, which sadly includes the passing of residents due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The County of Los Angeles Public Health Department tracks COVID-19 cases and deaths of County residents.
Culver City’s Case and Death Counts – as of March 10, 2021
– Cases in Culver City – 2,117
– Deaths in Culver City – 95
– Cases in Los Angeles County – 1,514 new cases were reported today (1,206,713 cases to date)
– Deaths in Los Angeles County – 119 new deaths were reported today (22,213 deaths to date)
There are 1,079 people with COVID-19 currently hospitalized, and 30% of these people are in the intensive care unit. Testing results are available for nearly 5,915,000 individuals with 19% of people testing positive. Today’s daily test positivity rate is 2.3%.
According to the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, Los Angeles County has begun to meet the metric thresholds for the red tier that allows for additional re-openings, including on-site learning for grades 7 through 12. To move into the less restrictive red tier, LA County’s daily case rate must be at or below 7 new cases per 100,000 people and the County’s test positivity rate must be at or below 8% for two consecutive weeks. LA County’s adjusted case rate dropped from 7.2 new cases per 100,000 people to 5.2 new cases per 100,000 people. The test positivity rate dropped from 3.5% to 2.5%.
Should the cases and test positivity rates remain at or below the red tier metrics next week, the County would move to the red tier on March 17.

According to the numbers released by LA Co (as of date) its case:death ratio comes to 1.85%. Culver City’s ratio (as of 3/13) comes to 4.5%. This is more than double the LA County’s ratio.
Is this right?
Why is Culver City’s ratio more than double that of LA Co?
Is there a difference in the ratios between our 2 ZIP Codes: the more densely populated 90232 and the less, sparsely housed R-1 zoning of 90230?
This question should be discussed by the city council and these facts made public before across-the-board zoning changes are made within our city.
