The L.A. County Department of Health’s "Safer at Home" Health Officer Order is in effect until at least May 15, 2020. While certain businesses are allowed to reopen starting May 8, City facilities must continue to remain closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
City Hall, the Signal Hill Public Library, and the City Yard are closed to the public until further notice. We are here to serve you by phone and e-mail.
Trails are open as of May 8, 2020. All trail users must practice physical distancing, avoid congregating, and wear a cloth face covering while in close contact with other people. Face coverings are not required while engaging in physically distanced exercise. Please do not use trails in groups. Before using our trails, please review the Reopening Protocol for Trails (PDF) from the L.A. County Department of Public Health.
Until further notice, playground equipment, basketball courts and exercise equipment that are open to the public are closed. The parking lots to Discovery Well Park and Hilltop Park are also closed to support County-wide Safer at Home orders and prevent crowding. The Dog Park is closed until further notice.
All other parks are open, however they must be treated as open, green space. Everyone using City parks must follow physical distancing guidance and stay at least six feet from all other persons. While we encourage our residents to exercise and walk through open park areas, we continue to monitor park usage and adherence to social-distancing requirements at City-managed facilities. We do not encourage people to travel long distances to reach our parks.
The City of Signal Hill is canceling City non-essential programs and events until further notice to comply with County Health Officer orders. This includes the following:

State and County Health orders require all Californians to stay home and refrain from all non-essential activities at this time. Everyone who can stay home, should stay home. All non-essential activities, and all group gatherings are prohibited. See Governor Newsom’s "Safer at Home" Order (as of March 21, 2020).
We recognize that these closures, cancelations, and changes are disruptive. However, they are being implemented 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 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.
