Members of Watts Neighborhood Council joined in with the Watts Labor Community Action Committee at Assembly Member Mike Gibson's Free Mask Giveaway on Saturday, May 16. Together we provided free surgical and non-surgical face masks to the community and to first responders at LAPD Southeast Community Police Station.
As of May 14, 2020 the Safer LA Order was loosened to open parks, beaches and trails, but face masks are required at all times when out and beach parking lots are closed.
Watts Neighborhood Council is proud to announce that we have supported Watts with our emergency funds during the COVID-19 crisis to fund the efforts of Sisters of Watts and East Side Riders in feeding our neighbors.
On May 8 Safer at Home becomes Safer LA allowing the opening of florists, toy stores, music stores, bookstores, clothing and sporting goods stores to offer curbside pickup. Trails will open May 9.
