COVID-19 / Coronavirus

There is an abundance of resources and tools for people and organizations to use to fight the spread of COVID-19 and build community knowledge as we pivot our movement building and limit our in-person interaction. Here is our list of resources and tools, which we will keep updating as we get more information.

Research and Knowledge

  • Flattening the Curve: Given all the major events and large gatherings that are shuttering, it’s important to understand why we need to do this. Our goal is to flatten the curve. Our healthcare system is currently being pushed hard with the influx of cases (and potential cases). The number of cases will increase and we want to make sure we can manage the increased load.

  • Get the facts straightCBC News medical contributor and family physician Dr. Peter Lin breaks down the facts about what it is, where it came from, how it spreads and what you can do to protect yourself.

  • Social Distancing: This is Not a Snow Day

School Resources and Information

  • Free meals for Children During School Closure: LBUSD will provide meals to children during the coronavirus school closure period.  Nutritious meals will be offered free at breakfast and lunch to children ages one to 18 at all LBUSD school locations, (except for California Academy for Math and Science located at California State University, Dominguez Hills campus) for the first week of the closure.  The school district will then evaluate its meal services and revise as necessary the schedule and operating locations for all future weeks of the school closure period.
