To ensure the continued health and safety of our community, the City of Beverly Hills has provided some tips for practicing good hygiene and staying healthy such as:
- Keep touchpoints clean – these are places that many people touch; such as door handles, counters, phones, keyboards, remote controls, etc.
- Wash your hands– wash many times during the day, for at least 20 seconds. If you can't wash your hands, use hand sanitizer.
- Maintain good personal hygiene and avoid touching your face.
Avoid contact with people who are sick or if you feel sick stay home. Also, consider reducing unnecessary close contact with others by avoiding handshakes or hugs.
The public is reminded to keep in mind these key points regarding the current status of the Novel Coronavirus in the United States:
- The term coronavirus refers to a family of viruses of which the COVID-19 is a part.
- View the CDC Page on Current Cases in the United States, the CDC FAQ Sheet and view the LACPH FAQ Sheet.
- The United States has implemented strict quarantine and monitoring of those returning to the United States.
- The City continues to plan for all emergencies and specifically a potential pandemic causing a need to social distance.
This is an evolving situation and people are reminded to be prepared for any emergency and to stock up on food, water, and other basic necessities.

The COVID-19 Kindness Task Force is comprised of community volunteers coming together to help our seniors and most vulnerable.
We are taking action – virtually and safely – to help meet their everyday needs and to bring community back to those in isolation brought on by social distancing.
The State of California, the County of Los Angeles and the City of Beverly Hills have declared a state of emergency in response to the ongoing public health concerns surrounding COVID-19. Protocols for reopening businesses first begin at the State level. After the State announces an industry can reopen, LA County Public Health will asses the timing and method for reopening businesses locally in cities including Beverly Hills.
To promote and protect public health, Beverly Hills City Hall is currently closed to the public until further notice and will operate as a virtual City Hall.
