Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update: City of Monterey Park Announces State Plan to Modify the Safer at Home Order; and Street Sweeping Parking Enforcement to Resume May 18 

The City of Monterey Park continues 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, Governor Newsom announced plans to modify the Safer at Home order. Modifications will happen in four stages based on protecting the health and safety of the public and scientific data. Modifications to the Safer at Home order will depend on each of us and our continued efforts to stay home and save lives. 

According to the LA County Public Health Department, “The best community and individual defense against COVID-19 is to wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands, avoid being around sick people, practice physical distancing, especially by staying at home, and wear a face covering when out in the public procuring or providing essential services.” The City of Monterey Park urges residents to continue to abide by the Safer at Home order and to only leave home for essential trips to seek medical care or to obtain vital necessities. 

Street Sweeping Parking Enforcement Resumes May 18, 2020

Due to an increase of debris and trash along curbs, street sweeping parking enforcement will resume on Monday, May 18, 2020. As a courtesy, notices will be distributed during the preceding week to remind residents that street sweeping parking will be enforced. For questions or additional information, please contact the Monterey Park Traffic Bureau at 626-307-1240.
