The City of Signal Hill is committed to the health and safety of everyone in our community. The City is under the jurisdiction of the L.A. County Department of Public Health, and we are committed to following all directives and guidance from County, State, and Federal health officials regarding COVID-19. The Los Angeles County Health Officer has issued an order to prohibit public gatherings, require social distancing measures, and more. These decisions are based on evidence of increasing community transmission of COVID-19, requiring the immediate implementation of additional efforts to mitigate spread of the virus.
The Signal Hill Public Library is closed through March 31, 2020. All programs, meeting room use, and facility rentals have been suspended through April 30, 2020. During this time, due dates for borrowed materials will be automatically extended, no late fines will be assessed, and patrons can return materials when the library reopens. Library staff will be available to provide assistance through telephone reference at 562-989-7323, Monday – Friday from 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Text-a-Librarian will continue to be available at 562-284-2766, Monday – Friday from 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
The City of Signal Hill is canceling City non-essential programs and events through April. This includes the following:
All City Council, Commission, and Committee meetings scheduled in March will take place as planned. Attendees must be in good health and free from respiratory symptoms. At-risk community members (over 60, underlying health conditions, recent travel) should not attend in-person. All members of the public are highly encouraged to use one of the following alternatives:
City Hall continues to remain open to the public to ensure continuing operations. However, we highly encourage residents and visitors to use alternate means to conduct business. If you must come in to City Hall, please only do so if you are healthy and not an at-risk individual. Please maintain six feet of distance between yourself and all other individuals inside, including City employees. Please consider calling or e-mailing in lieu of coming to City Hall.
The Signal Hill Police Department continues to remain open to the public to ensure continuing operations. However, we are implementing temporary protective measures to keep the public and our Signal Hill Police Department personnel safe and healthy. We highly encourage residents to consider conducting business with the Police Department in a manner that promotes social distancing.
The Los Angeles County Department of Health has issued an order to close all bars, brewpubs, taverns, entertainment centers, wineries, and movie theaters in the County, including in Signal Hill. Restaurants are limited to take-out and delivery service only. Signal Hill is enforcing this order. See our press release (PDF) for details.
These actions are being implemented not to cause concern, but to mitigate potential rapid transmission of COVID-19 in and around our community. These measures also protect at-risk individuals from becoming seriously ill and help to avoid an overload of our health care system. We can all do our part to prevent the spread of this new virus. Stay home when you are not feeling well, wash your hands regularly, avoid close contact with those who are ill, and practice good health hygiene. We encourage you to use trusted sources for information on COVID-19. Visit http://www.cityofsignalhill.org/coronavirus for the latest information and guidelines on how to stay healthy. You can also dial 2-1-1 for information directly from the L.A. County Public Health Department.
