On Saturday, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health reported 15 new deaths resulting from COVID-19 and 285 new positive cases.

While the number of hospitalizations continues to decrease across the County as vaccines are doled out, the number of deaths and confirmed cases reported may reflect delays in weekend reporting.

The numbers reported today by Public Health bring the County to a total of 24,390 deaths and 1,244,917 confirmed cases.

Of the 15 reported deaths today, eight were over the age of 80, four were between the ages 65 and 79, one was between the ages 50 and 64, and one was between ages 30 and 49.

The LA Health Department also announced that anyone who is 18 and older coming to get their first dose of the vaccine or who brings a new vaccine recipient to their second dose appointment at a LA County, city, St. John’s Well Child or Family Center vaccination site will have an opportunity to win a pair of season tickets to the 2021-22 home season of either the LA Football Club or the Los Angeles Dodgers. Rules and participating site locations are detailed on the LA County Vaccination Sweepstakes page online this coming Friday.
