The City of Signal Hill is served by the L.A. County Department of Public Health, and we are working closely with them to stay updated on this evolving situation. We will keep this page up-to-date with the latest information on COVID-19.
Learn more about social distancing from the L.A. Dept. of Health. Reducing physical contact with others and staying home as much as possible will help slow community transmission of COVID-19. This will save lives, protect vulnerable populations, and prevent a severe overload of our health care system. Health officials say the virus is easily transmitted, and many people are infected with COVID-19 who don’t have symptoms and don’t know they’re infected. If those people go out in public, they could spread the virus to many others, including high-risk individuals in danger of contracting the virus and becoming very ill. High-risk people include older adults, people with compromised immune systems, and people who have conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease. However, people of any age and/or health status have become very sick from COVID-19. We must all do our part to slow the spread of this new virus.
City Hall, the Signal Hill Public Library, and the City Yard are closed to the public until further notice. We are not allowing members of the public to enter these facilities at this time. Please be assured that City staff are still available and working to serve you. Please use the following alternate ways to work with us:
Members of the public are highly encouraged to use an alternate method to participate in City Council, Commission, and Committee meetings:

Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, dry cough, difficulty breathing, and shortness of breath. Typically, these symptoms are mild-to-moderate and do not require hospitalization. Higher-risk individuals may experience more severe symptoms. High-risk individuals include those 65 years old and older, have serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes and lung disease, and/or have compromised immune systems.
If you do not feel well, especially if you have one of the above symptoms, stay home. Call your health care provider right away. If you do not have a primary health care provider, please call 2-1-1 to be connected with one. Explain your symptoms and concerns, and follow their guidance. Do not call 9-1-1 and please do not go to an emergency room unless your symptoms become severe.
