From park closures to confirmed cases of COVID-19, these GIS tools and dashboards map Los Angeles County’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Social Services: Food, Cash, Health or In-Home Care Programs
In times of crisis, the Department of Public Social Services has provided LA County residents with critical support. Today’s COVID-19 health crisis is no different. The County of Los Angeles wants to assure individuals and families that while DPSS offices are closed, DPSS experts are still open for business – and ready to serve you.
