You know what’s handy? Waking up in the morning, firing up your phone/computer and being able to scan a super quick (but curated) rundown of the best of what lies ahead. So here it is, our list of fun things to do in Los Angeles for today, Sunday, March 8, 2020.
*** SPECIAL NOTE: On March 4, 2020 Los Angeles County declared a local health emergency in response to new Novel Coronavirus Activity (COVID-19). Per LA County’s press release, although individual risk of county residents contracting COVID-19 remains low, now is a good time to educate yourself on how the virus spreads and go over preparations you should make should the situation escalate, and more extreme measures (such as mandated social distancing) become a requirement. The County’s website has many excellent resources, including an F.A.Q. on COVID-19, and general steps you can take to stop the spread of illness, including a guide on proper hand washing. ***
