ORDER OF THE HEALTH OFFICER
Temporary Prohibition of Events and Gatherings of 10 Persons or More Closure of Non-Essential Retail Businesses
DATE ORDER ISSUED: March 19, 2020
Please read this Order carefully. Violation of or failure to comply with this Order is a crime punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both. (Ca. Health & Safety Code § 120295)
Summary: This Health Officer Order amends and supplements the Order of the Long Beach Health Officer (Health Officer) issued on March 12, 2020 and March 16, 2020, to control the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) within the City of Long Beach (City). The purpose of this Order is to further restrict and limit the gathering of persons and require the closure of malls, shopping centers, children’s playgrounds, and non- essential retail businesses in an effort to stem or slow the spread of COVID-19 within the City.
Because of the rapid spread of COVID-19 and the need to protect the most vulnerable members of our community, this Order prohibits all indoor public and private gatherings and all outdoor public and private events within a confined space, where at least 10 people are expected to be in attendance at the same time. This Order applies within the City, beginning at 11:59 p.m. on March 19, 2020 and continues through April 19, 2020, subject to the terms and conditions more particularly set forth below.
For all gatherings that are not prohibited, the Health Officer orders those persons attending an event or gathering and the venues holding the event or gathering implement the following infection control precautions:
  1. Practice social distancing within the confined space by requiring attendees to be separated by six (6) feet;
  2. Provide access to hand washing facilities with soap and water or hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol;
  3. Post a sign in a conspicuous place at the public entry to the venue instructing members of the public to not attend if they are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness, including fever or cough; and
  4. Adhere to communicable disease control recommendations provided by the Long Beach Department of Public Health and Human Services.
As a point of clarity, this Order does not prohibit any individual or family from outdoor activities such as hiking, walking (including with pets), shopping at Essential Businesses, including grocery stores and restaurants, so long as all persons practice social distancing to the extent practicable. Further, this Health Officer Order, requires all malls, shopping centers, playgrounds, and non-essential businesses to close.
The Health Officer will continue to monitor the rate of COVID-19 disease spread, State and CDC recommendations, and the impact of the required measures, and as needed, may revisit, extend, expand, or otherwise modify this Order to protect the public’s health.
March 18, 2020 Page 2
UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF CALIFORNIA HEALTH AND SAFETY CODE SECTIONS 101040, 101085, AND 120175, THE HEALTH OFFICER OF THE CITY OF LONG BEACH ORDERS:
  1. Effective 11:59 p.m. on March 19, 2020 and continuing through April 19, 2020, all public and private group events and gatherings, as defined below, of 10 or more people are prohibited anywhere within the City of Long Beach (City).
  2. For public and private gatherings attended by between 2-9 persons, held in a confined or enclosed space, and not prohibited by this Order, the organizer or the owner, manager, or operator of the venue holding the gathering shall:
    1. Enforce social distancing measures by requiring attendees who remain at the event or gathering for over 5 minutes to be separated by at least six (6) feet from other attendees during the entirety of the event or gathering. Persons who attend the event or gathering as a group (e.g., a group of family members or household contacts) may sit or remain together, but groups of attendees must be separated by a distance of at least six (6) feet.
    2. Provide access to hand washing facilities with soap and water or with hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
    3. Post a sign in a conspicuous place at all public entries to the venue that instructs members of the public to not enter or attend if they are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness, including fever or cough.
    4. Adhere to communicable disease control recommendations provided by the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services and the Center for Disease Control, including guidance for cleaning and disinfecting the site. See guidance posted at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus .
  3. The Health Officer orders the immediate closure of the following types of commercial properties and businesses, except Minimum Basic Operations, as defined in Section 11:
    1. Non-Essential Retail Businesses.
    2. Indoor Malls and Indoor Shopping Centers, including all stores therein regardless whether they are Essential or Non-Essential Retail Businesses. As an exception, Essential Businesses that part of an Indoor Mall or Indoor Shopping Center, that are accessible to the public from the exterior of the Indoor Mall or Shopping Center may remain open. The interior of the Indoor Mall or Indoor Shopping Center shall remain closed to the public.
    3. Indoor or Outdoor Playgrounds for Children, except for those located within childcare centers.
  4. Any business that is not identified in Section 3 as a business that must immediately close to the public, or as an Essential Business, may also continue operations consisting exclusively of employees or contractors performing activities at their own residences (i.e., working from home). All Essential Businesses are strongly encouraged to remain open. To the greatest extent feasible, Essential Businesses shall comply with Social Distancing Requirements as defined in Section 15 below, including by maintaining six-foot social distancing for both employees and members of the public, including, but not limited to, when any customers are standing in line.
March 19, 2020 Page 3
5. The Health Officer strongly recommends that employers within the City support CDC recommend guidelines for handwashing by allowing employees sufficient time to regularly clean and/or wash their hands.
REASONS FOR THE ORDER
  1. This Order is based upon scientific evidence and best practices, as currently known and available, to protect members of the public from avoidable risk of serious illness and death resulting from the spread of COVID-19, as well as to protect the healthcare system from a surge of cases into its emergency rooms and hospitals. The Order supports the CDC’s efforts to institute more stringent and necessary social distancing measures to reduce community transmission of COVID-19.
  2. Existing community transmission of COVID-19 in the City presents a substantial and significant risk of harm to the health of residents. Currently, there is no vaccine available to protect against and no specific treatment for COVID-19. As of March 19, 2020, there have been at least 12 cases of COVID-19 reported in the City of Long Beach, and 230 cases of COVID-19 and 2 deaths reported in Los Angeles County. There remains a strong likelihood of a significant and increasing number of suspected cases of community transmission.
  3. The virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread easily through person-to-person contact. This risk of transmission is increased when people are in close proximity. All gatherings pose an increased risk for community transmission of COVID-19 and thus, are a substantial risk to public health. As such, places where people gather, such as Indoor and Outdoor Malls, Shopping Centers, Children’s Playgrounds, and Non-Essential Retail Businesses, provide significant opportunities for patrons or groups of patrons to have close contact with each other. Thus, the reasons that persons gathering at these locations are likely to exacerbate the spread of COVID-19 include, without limitation: (a) that these gatherings and businesses will attract people from throughout the City and county when there is widespread COVID-19 community transmission, (b) the prolonged time period during which many people are in close proximity at these locations, (c) the difficulty in tracing and controlling additional exposures when large numbers of people visit a Mall, Shopping Center, Playground or Non-Essential Retail Business, and (d) the visitor may be unknowingly infected with COVID-19 and may not follow adequate hygienic and social distancing practices.
  4. In the absence of a specific immunization or treatment for COVID-19, social distancing is the only and most readily available tool to prevent this disease. Increasing social distancing and limiting events and gatherings slow transmission of communicable diseases. Accordingly, to reduce the community transmission of COVID-19, the Health Officer has ordered the temporary prohibition of all Events and Gatherings, as defined herein, and is also requiring the closure of certain businesses where it is usual practice for patrons to remain in close proximity.
