LA County Health Department confirms first COVID-19 case in Azusa
“As more and more testing becomes available, it was a matter of time that we had a local case reported. We hope the infected individual is well and makes a full recovery. It only underscores how important it is for all of us to continue to practice good hygiene etiquette and comply with the Safer at Home order. Social Distancing is the strongest tool we have right now. We must continue to be vigilant not only for our own health but more importantly, our most-vulnerable elderly residents.” Sergio Gonzalez, City Manager.
