COVID Hospital Admissions Slowing in LA County: Will We Avoid Mask Mandate?


The pace of COVID-19-positive patients being admitted to hospitals in Los Angeles County has begun to slow, pushing back the estimate of when an indoor mask-wearing mandate might be re-imposed, with such a move possibly being averted if admission numbers plateau or begin dropping, a health official said.

Dr. Paul Simon, chief science officer at the county Department of Public Health, said the rate of increase in COVID-positive patients has begun to diminish. The current seven-day average of new hospital admissions of people with the virus is 84 per day, Simon said, only a small bump from 83 the previous week.

The rate of hospital admissions for the past week was 7.3 per 100,000 residents. That was the same rate as the previous week, ending a steady trend of increases that has raised the possibility of a new universal indoor mask mandate in the county.
