Thank You from Mayor R. Rex Parris
Dear Lancaster Community Members,

Happy Saturday, Lancaster! We made it through a tough week as COVID-19 reached us locally. We’ve been inundated with information about what we CAN’T do, but what about what we still CAN do? We encourage everyone to continue “Having Fun While Staying Healthy!” What does that mean? It means taking a virtual tour of museums and national parks around the world, having a streaming party with your friends, stepping outside to soak up the sun, and doing activities with your kids. Share how you are having fun while staying healthy with us by tagging us and using #covid19av.

From an operational standpoint, we have been working diligently to get Recovery Care AV, a secondary recovery hospital, set up in an effort to be prepared for a rapid rise in cases based on projections and conditions in other countries. This location is in addition to two hotels that will also be utilized. This effort is to prevent overcrowding and shortages of treatment space at the hospital. The Salvation Army and Red Cross have been instrumental in preparing and providing all the necessary equipment that will be required to operate efficiently. In today's video message you will hear from Hector Acosta from the Salvation Army who shares the details of what they will be providing.

Lancaster, CA. March 21, 2020– Dear Lancaster Community Members,

With COVID-19 upon us, we’re dealing with unprecedented amounts of uncertainty. News is coming fast and every day brings a new twist, new fears, or a new change to our lives that we never imagined possible. In situations like this, it’s important to accept that much of what is happening is beyond our control, and work hard on the things we can improve.

The best thing we can do is stay calm, remind ourselves what we value, and carefully identify the best actions we can take to protect those values. Now, more than ever, we have the chance to be the types of people we want to be.

For us, keeping our hard working families safe is our top priority.

City of Lancaster - Update on COVID-19 Multi-Agency Coordination
Lancaster, CA - Dear Lancaster Community Members,

As many of you have heard, we received confirmation that there are two cases in Lancaster. Both patients are doing well and are expected to return home soon. We knew this was coming and have been preparing for it.

This is not how we imagined the start of this year, but with all the disappointing situations it provides opportunities to grow in unexpected ways.

We encourage our community to remain connected with each other and continue your social lives - using messaging apps and video calls to connect with family and friends, have a streaming watch party, or take an online mindfulness class. All of these activities can continue even while keeping a safe social distance of six feet away from others.

Social events will come back into lives when this passes. For now, we are all taking a pause from these activities so we can protect the most high risk among us - our elderly relatives and neighbors, friends with immune suppression and underlying medical conditions—from preventable serious illness.

City of Palmdale - Coronavirus Update - 3/21/20

Things are changing almost daily in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and we want to keep you up-to-date on what’s happening.

Mayor Steve Hofbauer, members of the City Council, City Manager J.J. Murphy, and City staff have been in daily contact with federal, state, county, and local officials to collaborate on how to best keep our residents safe during this pandemic.

As you probably know by now, on March 19, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a “Safer at Home” emergency order, calling on residents of the County of Los Angeles, which includes the City of Palmdale, to stay in their residences and limit all activities outside of their homes beyond what is absolutely necessary for essential tasks.

More details are available by clicking the links below, including a helpful FAQ by the City of Los Angeles which lists the types of businesses that will be able to remain open during the duration of the emergency order.

Keeping up with Kathryn Barger - Featuring: Safer at Home
Dear Friends,

There have been so many updates this week as we navigate the constantly-evolving coronavirus crisis.

I want to thank everyone who has reached out to give positive feedback about our efforts to protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19. Last night, I joined Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti and the mayors of Long Beach and Pasadena to announce Los Angeles County’s “Safer at Home” Public Health Order.

“Safer at Home” reflects true collaboration. We immediately received an outpouring of support from residents throughout the County. Our community members were cooperative and appreciative of our collective efforts to protect our public's health. We heard from countless people, non-profits, faith-based organizations, and businesses who wanted to know how they can help and offered their support for those who are struggling. As we work through this crisis, your positivity has reinvigorated my faith and pride in our community. It’s a great reminder of why I love this County and why I am so proud to represent our region.

Below are answers to some frequently asked questions from our residents about what "Safer at Home" means for their job, their family, and their community. I hope this provides some clarity and peace of mind.

Best wishes,

Kathryn Barger
Supervisor, Fifth District
Chair, Board of Supervisors
