In the wake of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Lakers winning championship titles this year, revelers in the city have been asked to quarantine for the next two weeks.
Los Angeles Health Director Barbara Ferrer said anyone who celebrated with others without wearing a face covering or practicing social distancing should take precautions.
“For the next 14 days, remain apart from others as much as possible. Get tested and monitor yourself for symptoms of illness. If you know that you were in contact with a person who tested positive for Covid-19, please quarantine for the full 14 days, even if you have a negative test result,” Ferrer told fans in a news conference Wednesday.
Ferrer attributed an increase in cases partly to gatherings for sports events and celebrations for the Lakers and Dodgers.
