COVID Updates & Resources

COVID-19 EMERGENCY ORDER ENDS

On Tuesday, March 7, 2023, the City Council reviewed and terminated the local COVID-19 emergency proclamation, closing a chapter of our history related to our emergency response to the pandemic. 

COVID-19 remains in our lives, but with the efficacy of vaccines, abundant testing and treatment available, and a much better understanding of the virus, we have entered a different phase of the pandemic where an emergency proclamation is no longer required.

As we move into this new phase, here is a summary of commonly asked questions:

HOUSING

The City of San Gabriel follows LA County’s housing and rent control ordinance. 

Visit Los Angeles County Consumer & Business Affairs to learn about protections that will no longer be in place and others that are being extended beyond March 31, 2023.

Properties in the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County also follow the County’s guide. Find out if you live in the unincorporated portion of San Gabriel by visiting the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk website and select “District Map Look Up By Address.”

Aside from failure to pay rent, landlords can also file for eviction over nuisances, lease violations, plans to take an apartment off the rental market etc. 

If you are lived for at least one year in rental housing built more than 15 years ago, you are protected against evictions without a justified cause (state law AB 1482).

If you lack just cause protections — perhaps you’re renting an apartment in a newer building — your landlord can evict you without a stated reason. However, they still must provide you with a 30-day or 60-day eviction notice, depending on the circumstances.

To learn more information, please visit the Los Angeles County Department of Consumer & Business Affairs website.

VACCINATIONS AND TEST KITS

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health will continue to provide vaccines, therapeutics and test kits for free to those who are uninsured and underinsured, while supplies last.

OUTDOOR DINING

The City of San Gabriel follow LA County’s guidelines on outdoor dining permits, which will end on March 31, 2023, but we anticipate having a discussion regarding the appropriate process to manage this program with the City Council soon. Existing outdoor dining spaces can continue to operate until we roll out our new process.
