ICYMI, here’s the link to Mayor Garcetti’s briefing last night. As a reminder, these daily briefings will occur Sunday – Friday at 5:15pm until further notice. You can watch the Mayor’s briefing on Facebook.
Below are the newest updates from Mayor Garcetti:
- “Safer at Home” Business Ambassadors program: City workers and volunteers with the Mayor’s Crisis Response Team will be deployed to businesses that appear to be out of compliance with the emergency order with a goal of securing voluntary compliance. If voluntary compliance is not achieved, the ambassadors will share information with the City Attorney and LAPD for follow-up. Members of the public can report out-of-compliance businesses at coronavirus.lacity.org/reportbusinessviolation.
I’d also like to invite you to join the County Board of Supervisors for their daily briefings every day at 12:30pm until further notice. You can watch the County briefing on the County Channel, Facebook, or on local news stations.

Eviction Moratorium FAQ

Resources for self-employed (pulled from CA EDD website)
If you are self-employed, you may have benefits available from EDD employment insurance programs that you or your employer may have paid into over the past 5 to 18 months. You may have contributions from a prior job, or you could have been misclassified as an independent contractor instead of an employee. Apply for the benefit program that best fits your situation. Visit Self-Employed/Independent Contractor to learn more.
Additionally, the County is working on resources for people in the “gig” economy and we will share once available.

Community Partnerships and Resources
Our Office of Volunteer engagement is also conducting a nonprofit needs assessment. Please identify what you are doing in response to COVID-19, what in-kind donations you need, and what volunteer needs you have. We are gathering information in hopes to connect you with aid, but at this time, we are only gathering information.
