[ARCHIVED] Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update: The City of Monterey Park Continues to Expand Efforts to Slow the Sprea

MPK News Release-Coronavirus COVID-19 Update 3-27

The City of Monterey Park will continue to follow the lead of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in implementing protocols to protect the health and safety of everyone in public spaces and in providing accurate and timely updates to the community.

Today, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has ordered the closure of all public trails and trailheads, beaches, piers, and beach access points. The City of Monterey Park is subject to this order and will comply by closing Edison Trails Park and trail, effective immediately.

Again, the intent of this action is to avoid the spread of COVID-19 by having people shelter in place (another way of saying stay home) at their residence, while enabling only essential services to continue. Failure to comply with the provisions of this action constitutes a threat to public health.
