LANCASTER — The City Council on Tuesday unanimously confirmed the continued existence of a local emergency in the city because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The City Council previously affirmed and ratified a proclamation of the existence of a local emergency due to the pandemic at its March 17 meeting.

Los Angeles County and state health officers issued orders intended to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, including mandating people to stay home except as needed to perform essential services, ordering businesses deemed non-essential to close, and requiring the wearing of face masks when in public.

“Although some restrictions in these various orders have been relaxed recently, the national and local public health emergency resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic remains in effect, and the virus continues to pose a threat to the health and safety of residents in the City of Lancaster,” a staff report said.

The City Council, in accordance with the California Emergency Services Act, will  regularly review the need for continuing the local emergency.
