Throughout LA County, COVID 19 Circumstances Are Surging, But, Folks Are Touring – CBS Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Despite warnings from state and local health officials and the rise in coronavirus cases, many traveled in and out of the Los Angele area on vacation.
On Sunday at Los Angeles International Airport, travelers appeared to be waiting in lines to check their bags at a terminal. Since many had chosen not to just keep going, lines had formed.
TSA has screened more than 800,000 passengers a day for 16 of the last 17 days, with many of those days being a million travelers a day, almost half of what would be typical in a year without a pandemic. Also in LAX, officials are now offering new rapid tests with an on-site laboratory to deliver results sooner.
COVID-19 cases are increasing across the county and south country. More than 800,000 cases of COVID 19 have been reported in LA County. Elsewhere in San Bernardino, two cases of the contagious load have been reported, which is more common in the UK.
Health officials urge everyone to do their part to contain the spread.
