This dashboard is designed to shed light on the recovery and reopening of businesses and public places in Los Angeles by showing health and wellness information, as well as the status of some essential City services and the City’s efforts to help residents. The data on this dashboard is updated frequently, but some data is updated daily and some may be updated weekly or even monthly. Numbers shown in green indicate an improvement toward the City and County goals, while numbers in red show worsening conditions. 

The following is a breakdown of the topics covered on the dashboard, the data representing those key indicators, and the source of the data.

Health and Wellness

  • 7-day average cases and the percentage change versus the prior week
  • 7-day average deaths and the percentage change versus the prior week
  • 3-day average hospitalizations and the percentage change vs prior week
  • The L.A. County 7-day positive testing rate

Helping Residents

  • Angeleno Cards: This program provides financial assistance for in-need households via no-fee debit cards that are paid for by donations. This program re-opens periodically as additional donations are made. 
  • Senior Meals: This program provides home-delivered and healthy meals to seniors. This program is currently at capacity. A similar L.A. County program is still accepting applications.
  • Project Roomkey: Project Roomkey is a coordinated effort to secure hotel and motel rooms in L.A. County as temporary shelters for people experiencing homelessness who are at high-risk for hospitalization if they contract COVID-19. High-risk individuals include those who are age 65+ and/or suffering from chronic illness. 
  • Renter Protections: To assist residential renters who have been economically impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, Mayor Garcetti and the City Council adopted tenant protections on evictions and rent increases in the City of Los Angeles.

Health and Wellness (Detailed Page)

  • COVID-19 Cases shows the number of confirmed cases in the City and County of Los Angeles. These are shown as the total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Los Angeles since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, new cases of COVID-19 confirmed on the previous day, the daily average number of cases over the last seven days, and the change (in percent) from the prior week’s average. The numbers inside each bar are the total for that day. The goal is to have a decrease in confirmed cases and specifically in the change from the prior week’s average.

These are shown as the total deaths (in Los Angeles since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic), new deaths from COVID-19 confirmed on the previous day, the daily average number of deaths over the last seven days, and the change (in percent) from the prior week’s average.

  • Hospitalizations shows the current number of patients with COVID-19 in Los Angeles hospitals, the average daily number of COVID-19 patients over the previous three days, and the change (in percent) from the prior 3-day average. The dashed line shows the hospital capacity for treating patients. The colors show the hospital beds: occupied by COVID-19 patients (COVID occupied), occupied by non-COVID patients (unavailable), occupied by patients that may have COVID-19 and are awaiting test results (COVID patient under investigation), and open and available beds.  The goal is to remain under the line and within the capacity of hospitals to treat all patients.

  • Cases/Deaths by Ethnicity shows the number and proportion of COVID-19 cases and deaths by race and ethnicity. A dropdown will allow you to switch between cases and deaths. The table includes a breakdown by race/ethnicity of total cases/deaths, the percent of total cases/death that each race/ethnicity comprises, each group’s percentage of Los Angeles’ population, a crude rate per 100,000 residents, and a category called “% of Total Non-Missing.” This last category re-calculates the distribution for each race/ethnicity by removing all data for which race/ethnicity is not known. For the table and chart of deaths by race/ethnicity, everything is color-coded red (if a group’s proportion of cases is higher than their population percent) and blue (if the proportion is lower).

  • Testing shows a graphical time-series comparison of cumulative, performed, and available tests for COVID-19 in the City of Los Angeles. Test Status lists the number of tests conducted on the previous day, test kits available, and the total number of tests performed. It is important to note that many testing centers are closed on Sundays, so the number of tests conducted on Sundays will be lower, as will the number of confirmed cases reported on Sundays and Mondays.
