COVID Hospitalizations Tick Up Slightly in LA County

September 20, 2022 - The number of COVID-positive patients in Los Angeles County hospitals remains stable, increasing by five people to 674, according to the latest state figures.

Of those patients hospitalized as of Saturday, 89 were being treated in intensive care, down from 92 the previous day.

The hospital numbers have been declining over the past month, corresponding with falling transmission rates. County officials have said about 43% of patients with COVID were actually hospitalized due to virus-related illness, while the rest were admitted for other reasons, with some only learning they were infected when they were tested upon admission.
Masks are currently "strongly recommended" in most indoor settings. But the falling case rate will change it to an "individual preference."

Masks continue to be required in select settings, including health care facilities, correctional facilities and homeless shelters. Masks are currently still required aboard public transit vehicles such as buses and trains, but Ferrer said that requirement could also end soon.
