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.
