The lone new case raises the city’s overall total cases to 2,440. The death deal stood at 117.Pasadena saw an average of 7.1 new infections per day over the past seven days, according to city data.While city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said low numbers are always a welcome sight, Monday’s test results may not present a complete picture.“Typically, on holiday weekends, people tend to not get tested, so numbers appear lower,” she said. “We hope we don’t see an increase later in the week due to gatherings, travel, community spread, etcetera.”At Huntington Hospital, doctors treated 30 COVID-19 patients on Monday, according to hospital data. Five tests were pending.Los Angeles County public health officials also announced relatively low figures, but also cautioned that Monday’s update “reflects both a delay in test and death reports over the weekend and the closure of testing sites over the holiday,” the L.A. County Department of Public Health said in a written statement.County officials reported 494 new novel coronavirus infections and 25 additional fatalities, bringing the overall totals to 248,821 COVID-19 cases and 6,030 deaths.Just over 940 patients were hospitalized with COVID-19 on Monday, with 32 percent of them being treated in intensive care units.L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer used the occasion of Labor Day to remind the public to do all they can to keep essential workers safe and healthy.“Today, as we celebrate the labor movement and the social and economic achievements of American workers, let’s honor our workers with deliberate actions that protect them from COVID-19,” she said. “We honor our workers and the meaning of Labor Day by being caring customers, responsible business owners and operators, and organized workers. Responsible business owners and operators fully implement infection control and distancing directives for your business.“Caring customers wear face coverings and keep distance from all others,” according to Ferrer. “Organized workers practice infection control protocols and report violations immediately to Public Health at 888-700-9995; complaints and concerns can be reported anonymously. Together we protect our workers, slow COVID-19 spread, and save lives.”With 2.38 million tests administered in the county, the county’s overall positivity rate remained at 10 percent, officials said.The California Department of Public Health announced 3,091 new infections and 17 new deaths, marking 735,235 total COVID-19 cases and 13,726 deaths since the start of the pandemic.The state’s average positivity rate over the past week had declined to 4 percent, and the 14-day rate was 4.4 percent, the CDPH said in a written statement.As of Monday, Los Angeles County accounted for 34 percent of California’s COVID-19 cases and 44 percent of the state’s fatalities.last_img
