  • Case rate data on the City’s COVID-19 data dashboard now shows an adjusted calculation based on the testing volume of all Long Beach residents, rather than just testing samples collected in Long Beach. Case rate data for Long Beach remains the same. The new adjusted case rate has no impact on the City’s movement through State’s Blueprint for Reopening. Long Beach falls under Los Angeles County’s adjusted case rate for decisions regarding the reopening or closing of businesses.
