Inspectors find ‘deficiencies’ at virus test lab in Valencia

By DON THOMPSON | The Associated Press Inspectors found “significant deficiencies” at California’s new coronavirus testing laboratory, problems that state officials on Monday, Feb. 22, partly blamed on the rapid ramp-up they required from the lab’s private operator under terms of a $1.4 billion contract. A fraction of 1% of the more than 1.5 million tests processed at the Valencia Branch Laboratory had problems, the state said in a preliminary report, but Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. ...

Los Angeles Unified schools Superintendent Austin Beutner on Monday, Feb. 22, doubled down on his challenge to elected officials to get elementary campuses in the nation’s second-largest school district up and running by April 9, insisting it can be done if vaccines are prioritized for school employees. And in anticipation that a more general school reopening can occur by then, the district will resume providing child care, one-one-one and small group instruction, special education services and ...

New vaccine delivery system launches in parts of California

By JANIE HAR, AMY TAXIN and KATHLEEN RONAYNE |  The Associated Press California’s new system of delivering, tracking and scheduling coronavirus vaccines is being rolled out in select counties, a first step in Gov.

LA County’s vaccine mission keeps getting more complex

Los Angeles County’s mission to vaccinate roughly 8 million adults continues to get whole lot more complicated — and few of the solutions are worked out. Meanwhile, L.A.

On Friday, the county reported 150 new deaths and 2,459 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the total number of deaths to 19,662 deaths and positive cases to 1,176,772.

CDC says it’s safe to reopen schools, even without vaccinating teachers

By COLLIN BINKLEY and MIKE STOBBE | Associated Press The nation’s top public health agency said Friday that in-person schooling can resume safely with masks, social distancing and other strategies, but vaccination of teachers, while important, is not a prerequisite for reopening. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its long-awaited road map for getting students back to classrooms in the middle of a pandemic. But its guidance is just that — the agency cannot force schools to r...

LA County officials vow improvements in coronavirus vaccination system

Public health officials worked to clarify Los Angeles County’s coronavirus timetable on Thursday, Jan. 14, as many seniors found themselves confused over when exactly they could sign up for a vaccine — and why they must wait, likely for another month, for those  shots — after Gov.

Despite the governor’s announcement on widening vaccine delivery, th...

Mayor’s ‘cheat sheet’: How LA County’s restrictions would change under state order

Los Angeles County residents can still go to the nail and hair salons, but likely not for long with the Southern California region expected to undergo the state’s even stricter stay-at-home rules. Most activity that isn’t considered essential have already been restricted under a county order — that was reaffirmed in a city order — so it may be difficult to discern what further restrictions the state rules would bring, if ICU capacity dips below a certain threshold. Probably sensing that many Ang...

Los Angeles County’s top health officer on Thursday, Oct. 15, added his voice to those condemning a recently released proposal that essentially calls for a resumption of normal activities for all but those at highest risk of contracting COVID-19, in theory promoting “herd immunity” to the virus. “There’s been a lot of discussion among our public heath and health sciences communities and they have unambiguously rejected this declaration, and this approach would unnecessarily sacrifice many lives,...

LA County endures sharp one-day spike in coronavirus cases

Los Angeles County reported its highest daily number of new coronavirus cases in six weeks on Wednesday. Oct. 7.

At a Sylmar teacher’s maternity room, school is in session

A room at the maternity ward at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills is full of the sound of third-graders’ voices. They’re echoing from the speakers in Janet Udomratsak’s laptop. “I’m not finished yet,” says a forlorn but honest voice, clearly in the middle of deep thought on the issue of “3 x 4.” Rows. Arrays. Columns. Answer… Computing….. Computing… and the chats start coming in. A collective answer. A collective “12.” And with that, a small victory for Udomratsak. “Good job!...
