5 Ways the Coronavirus has Impacted the Whittier Area

Whittier Daily News – Over the span of two months COVID-19 has impacted the seven cities and unincorporated areas in the greater Whittier area. After receiving the first reports of COVID-19 cases in the area, the cities began shutting down city halls, parks, and other facilities.

Whittier City Manager Brain Saeki believes the curve is bending in Whittier, pointing to the numbers from PIH Health, which has been publishing the numbers of COVID-19 cases seen at its hospitals since April 3. However, says that although the numbers are lower, “until we get a vaccine, no one if entirely safe.”
