AMTV, Los Angeles, Feb 22 – Los Angeles County Public Health will end this weekly COVID-19 news release effective today. A wide range of data and dashboards on COVID-19 are updated weekly and will continue to be available on the Public Health COVID data webpage. Public Health will continue to monitor COVID-19 circulation and issue press releases as needed to update the public on any potential changes in COVID-19 status in Los Angeles County.

This week, Public Health reports 187 average daily COVID-19 cases, a decrease from the 218 reported last week. Reported cases do not include home tests, so the actual number of COVID-19 infections in the community is higher.
