Health officials in Los Angeles County have warned residents to be vigilant on Mother’s Day.

“In the wake of the high spread of the virus, public health workers are being asked to celebrate and honor their mothers and grandmothers this weekend, to check on each other before gathering and to keep each other as safe as possible outside and wearing masks while indoors.” The LA County Department of Public Health said in a statement.

The message came amid a lawsuit in Los Angeles County. Figures released Friday show the county reporting more than 3,000 new cases, six deaths and more than 230 hospital admissions – a slight drop from the previous week.

According to state data released on Sunday, the number of covid-related hospital admissions dropped by 10 to 248, while the number of intensive care patients, 33, remained unchanged from the previous day.

“As LA County continues to be at this different stage of the epidemic, public health goals have not changed, and we will work with partners to reduce serious illness and deaths from Covid-19,” Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said in a statement.

“While there are combined prevention strategies that can alleviate the spread and serious illness, it is not appropriate to tolerate inequalities resulting from high rates of illness, death and long-term disability among some residents and workers.”
