WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER
The COVID-19 Kindness Task Force, spearheaded by Mayor John Mirisch and City Council, comprises of all community volunteers coming together to help each other, including our seniors and our most vulnerable, during this time of crisis.
We are taking action – virtually and safely – to help the most vulnerable meet their everyday needs and to bring community back to those in isolation brought on by social distancing.
The COVID-19 Hotline Number is (310) 550-4680.
Monday-Friday | 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
This is a service of the City of Beverly Hills to provide general information and resources, and does not constitute medical advice. Please consult with your healthcare provider regarding questions surrounding treatment and diagnosis.
The City continues to receive updates from and participate in planning regarding the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) with both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH). The City is being proactive and is in regular communication with our local and national partners to coordinate potential response.
The City's emergency personnel are well trained and ready to respond.
To ensure the continued health and safety of our community, the City of Beverly Hills has provided some tips for practicing good hygiene and staying healthy such as:
- Keep touchpoints clean – these are places that many people touch; such as door handles, counters, phones, keyboards, remote controls, etc.
- Wash your hands – wash many times during the day, for at least 20 seconds. If you can’t wash your hands, use hand sanitizer.
- Maintain good personal hygiene and avoid touching your face.
Avoid contact with people who are sick or if you feel sick stay home. Also, consider reducing unnecessary close contact with others by avoiding handshakes or hugs.
The public is reminded to keep in mind these key points regarding the current status of the Novel Coronavirus in the United States:
- The term coronavirus refers to a family of viruses of which the COVID-19 is a part.
- View the CDC Page on Current Cases in the United States, the CDC FAQ Sheet and view the LACPH FAQ Sheet.
- The United States has implemented strict quarantine and monitoring of those returning to the United States.
- The City continues to plan for all emergencies and specifically a potential pandemic causing a need to social distance.
This is an evolving situation and people are reminded to be prepared for any emergency and to stock up on food, water, and other basic necessities.
