(Malibu, CA) - The City of Malibu’s number one priority is ensuring public safety of the community. The City understands that community members are very concerned about the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential spread and impact on individual and public health and safety, and that community members are eager for information.
The City has been asked to confirm whether there are any Malibu residents that have been diagnosed with COVID-19. The City of Malibu has contacted the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LADPH) who provided the following guidelines about the release of information pertinent to the current Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in Los Angeles County. To protect patient privacy, LADPH does not provide details of specific cases. Public health investigations, under state and federal law, are confidential. Specific information is disclosed by LADPH when necessary to prevent the occurrence of additional cases. LADPH will provide additional information regarding Novel Coronavirus cases only when: a new case of the virus is confirmed; if a person confirmed to have the virus has died; and if there is a confirmed case at public locations and it is necessary to identify additional persons at risk for being infected.
The City, in standard preparation for any emergency or disaster, has robust plans in place for continuity of government services and business operations. The City has prepared a Pandemic Response Plan that will address continuity of operations for businesses, schools and City government services in case a serious outbreak of corona (or other communicable disease) occurs locally. As in any emergency situation or disaster, the City receives official information from the County of Los Angeles which is then be disseminated to the Malibu community.
Malibu will continue to follow the lead of the LADPH and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in implementing protocols for public spaces and in messaging to the community.
The public is urged to follow these hygiene and containment measures:
