NOTE: In alignment with both the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), LA County Department of Public Health will change to weekly reporting of COVID-19 data on Thursdays.

Los Angeles County Case Summary

*Case and death numbers include cases identified among persons detained at correctional facilities located in the city/community.
Data are subject to change based on further investigation.
(1) No. of cases per 100,000 residents
(2) No. of deaths per 100,000 residents

As of 2/27/23, the “new daily counts” of reported cases and deaths at the top of this table will not include Long Beach cases on Saturdays-Thursdays. All Long Beach cases/deaths for the week will be included in the reported case/death counts on Fridays, making the reported counts on Fridays artificially high. This is due to a reporting cadence change by the City of Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services.

Table updated monthly. Updated 3/29/2023
(1) COVID-associated illness is determined by ICD-10 diagnosis codes assigned to a patient upon discharge. The COVID-associated illness definition includes patients positive for COVID-19 with a pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome, or acute cardiopulmonary diagnosis. A national standard definition for COVID-associated illness has not been developed; caution should be applied when comparing these estimates to estimates from other jurisdictions which may use different methods.

Active COVID-19 Outbreaks

7-day Average Daily Total and Skilled Nursing Facility-Associated COVID-19 Laboratory Confirmed Case Deaths by Date of Death1,2,3,4,5

This figure uses a 7-day rolling average to show the daily number of all COVID-19 deaths and COVID-19 deaths among residents of skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) over time. The 7-day rolling average is calculated for each day by averaging the number of deaths that occurred on that day, and the six days before. This approach prevents daily ups-and-downs from skewing the data and shows a clearer picture of death trends. Recent death data are shown within gray shading due to a time lag in death reporting; trend lines within the gray area should be interpreted with caution.

7-day Average Daily Total and Skilled Nursing Facility-Associated COVID-19 Laboratory Conrfirmed Case Deaths by Date of Death
