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. ...

COVID Deaths Remain High In California Even As Case Rates Plummet

LOS ANGELES (AP/CBS13) — California’s death toll during the coronavirus pandemic remains alarmingly high, topping 49,000 this weekend, even as the rates of new infections and hospitalizations continue to plummet across the state.

The 6,760 new confirmed cases are more than 85% below the mid-December peak of about 54,0...

Newsom touts new Southern California vaccine pop-ups as counties transition to Blue Shield network

Gov. Gavin Newsom visited two federally funded pop-up coronavirus vaccination sites in Southern California on Sunday, Feb. 21, part of a statewide tour of such spots aimed at immunizing the state’s hardest-hit communities. The visit coincided with the launch of the transition to a new centralized system — which will include Riverside County in its first wave — to manage the state’s thus-far bumpy rollout of the badly needed vaccine. Newsom, flanked by several local elected leaders, said the mobi...

L.A. County reports 93 deaths, 1,435 new coronavirus cases Sunday

Gavin Newsom was set to arrive to tour mobile vaccination sites in Los Angeles, county public health officials reported 1,465 new cases of COVID-19 and 93 additional deaths on Sunday, Feb. 21, with officials noting that the relatively lower number of cases and deaths may reflect reporting delays over the weekend.

SACRAMENTO (AP/CBS13) – Heeding the call of Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sen. Scott Wiener introduced legislation on Wednesday that would ban all fracking in California by 2027 and halt the oil and gas extraction method around schools and homes by Jan. 1.

Why do some California counties get COVID-19 vaccines into arms faster than others?

California is pushing shots into arms at a much faster clip than it was just a month ago — closing in on the national average, with vows to accelerate even further — but the pace of COVID-19 vaccinations varies greatly from county to county within the Golden State. A Southern California News Group analysis of state data found that smaller counties with fewer people and less complicated logistics are leading the pack in vaccinating their residents: Little Mono, with 14,526 residents, ranked No. ...

LA County vows to increase equity for coronavirus vaccines in hardest hit areas

One of the key aspects health officials tried to rely on to ensure the coronavirus vaccine reaches people in communities hardest hit by the virus involved using dozens of federally qualified health clinics specially tailored to provide care in underserved areas. There was just one problem. The vaccines being administered at those health clinics were not earmarked in any way for patients who use the clinic or for other people in the nearby community. Instead, many of those vaccination appointment...

If you’re looking to get your second coronavirus vaccination this week, you’re Los Angeles County’s first priority. Appointments for first doses, meanwhile, may be difficult to come by.

LAUSD students discuss political climate as Biden becomes president

Seeing a new administration take over the White House brings with it a feeling of excitement for Emely Cortez. At the same time, she struggles to remain hopeful that President Joe Biden will be able to get as much accomplished as she would like, given how fractured the country is. “In the last four years, when I’ve actually gotten into politics and I started paying attention, I’ve only seen a lot of bad stuff,” said Cortez, an 11th grader at Cesar E.

5 vaccination mega-centers open in L.A. County today – but are there enough doses to stock them?

Fueled by an increasingly uncertain supply of much-coveted coronavirus vaccines, Los Angeles County aimed to roll out five new large-scale vaccination centers, all at high-profile settings around the region, on Tuesday, Jan. 19.

Coronavirus vaccine shipments unpredictable, says LA County’s chief science officer

Los Angeles County health officials said on Friday, Jan. 15, their vaccination efforts have been stymied by a short supply of doses and an unpredictable shipment schedule that’s making it tough to plan. Within the state’s most populous county, about 219,000 healthcare workers have received their first vaccine doses while about 60,000 have had their second dose, according to Dr. Paul Simon, chief science officer for the county Department of Public Health. Simon anticipates 200,000 more healthcare...
