City of Glendale Declares Local State of Emergency and Issues Emergency Order for Temporary Business Closures to Slow the Spread of COVID-19

Glendale, CA – On March 16, 2020, the City of Glendale issued a local emergency proclamation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in addition to a number of measures already in place across the City to protect members of the public from risk of contracting the virus. Today, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a news release that confirms two cases of COVID-19 in the City of Glendale. Our precautions over the past weeks and what we do over the next few days and weeks will determine how well we weather this emergency.

Following the emergency proclamation, the City’s Emergency Operations Center will be activated. In addition to declaring a local emergency, effective March 17, 2020, the City of Glendale issued a supplement to the local emergency proclamation that orders temporary business closures to slow the spread of COVID-19.

  • All movie theaters, live performance venues, bowling alleys, arcades, and similar entertainment establishments shall be closed to the public.

Important Information

The health and safety of the Glendale community will always be our top priority, and we continue to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely.

On March 16th, 2020, the City of Glendale issued a local emergency proclamation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in addition to a number of measures already in place across the City to protect members of the public from risk of contracting the virus. 

The City has developed open lines of communications amongst local and federal health agencies in order to be ready to react appropriately, should the need for local mitigation responses become necessary. Amongst these alliances include the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, Center for Disease Control, Glendale Adventist, Glendale Memorial and USC Verdugo Hills Hospitals, the Glendale Unified School District, and Glendale Community College. Additionally, our Fire Department Personnel have been in constant contact with our Local Area C Disaster Management Area Coordinators in an effort to keep abreast of new developments, disaster declarations, and the implementation of any potential response, should it become necessary. 

We will continue to closely monitor and share all new developments and CDC recommendations with our residents and community partners in an effort to take additional actions as appropriate. We have been in regular communication with the LA County Department of Public Health through tele-briefings in order to understand any changes, their protocols, and updates to the spread of the virus.

As the City of Glendale continues to remain proactive in monitoring and responding to COVID-19, it is vital to practice every day preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Getting your flu vaccination – it’s not too late!
  • Staying home if you are sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough;
  • Regularly washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available;
  • Covering your cough or sneeze with your sleeve or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Contact your primary care physician if symptoms develop;
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands;
  • Limiting close contact with people who are sick;
  • Cleaning surfaces that are touched often;
  • Having an ample supply of essentials at home (including water, food, hygiene, medications, and pet food);
  • Planning for the possibility of business disruptions, school closures, and modifications/cancellations of select public events;
  • Practicing simple social distancing strategies that limit your exposure to others who may be ill (verbal salutations in place of handshakes and hugs, not sharing utensils, cups and linens, staying six feet apart from others at public events);
  • Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional.
