COVID-19 / Pandemic Response

COVID-19 / Pandemic Response

Redondo Beach leads the way to the pandemic response

Today, we are working with LA County to open the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center as a vaccine distribution location. This partnership would allow for thousands of vaccines to be administered daily.

I am honored to have gotten the Moderna vaccine at the end of December, bringing me into the new year vaccinated against COVID-19.  I was able toreceive the vaccine since I am a LA County Lifeguard, working among the public as a first responder.

There are many things that Redondo has done in response to the pandemic:

  • First city in the South Bay to deem the pandemic as a "Local Emergency"
  • Shutdown parking along Esplanade to support "safer at home".
  • Equipped Police with masks to hand out to public for public interactions.
  • Halted street sweeping enforcement to support "safer at home".
  • Allowed the Riviera Village Business Improvement District to build the "Garden parklets" for the Riviera Village businesses.
  • Used COVID-19 Federal relief fund grant money for:
    • $84,000 for Riviera Village businesses (both Federal and State pass-through funds)
    • $34,000 for City-wide business
    • $20,000 for Artesia Blvd.
