Essential City Services Continue as County Returns to Purple Tier

Post Date:11/16/2020 3:13 pm

The emergency action announced Monday by Governor Newsom and state health officials places 28 counties, including Orange County, into the most restrictive (purple) tier of the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. The change in status, which goes into effect Tuesday, is in response to statewide increases in COVID-19 cases.

 All essential services in the City of Newport Beach will continue uninterrupted, as they have throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to emphasize education when it comes to maintaining the critical behaviors necessary to effectively combat the virus during these upcoming winter months. We will continue to work closely with our health care partners, including Hoag Hospital and the County of Orange.

The health of our community is our top priority. We ask everyone to stay vigilant, continue to wear face coverings and wash hands frequently, and limit contact with those outside your household during the upcoming holidays.

COVID-19 Coronavirus

The Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and has now been detected globally. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).

The City of Newport Beach is working with federal, state, and local partners including the CDC, the OC Health Care Agency (OCHCA), and health care providers to prepare and appropriately care for people who may be at risk for illness associated with COVID-19 or who have tested positive for COVID-19. This is a rapidly changing situation, and we will share more as we are updated from our colleagues at the local, state and/or federal level.
