How to Keep Track of COVID-19-Related Closures and Cancellations
Article posted: March 13, 2020, 6:30 p.m.

The constantly evolving pandemic situation is having an effect on events, meetings, schooling, and businesses in Topanga and throughout the country. California, and now the federal government, have declared state and national emergencies; and local and state officials have called for the cancelation of large public gatherings. Here's what we know, so far, and how to stay up-to-date.

Please note that these things are fluid and can change at any time. This is why it's important to go to the source for the most current updates and schedules.  Also, we will be temporarily suspending OneTopanga's community calendar to prevent confusion, as nearly all events are canceled or postponed.

Los Angeles Unified School District announced on Friday, March 13, it would close schools starting March 16 for at least two weeks. This obviously includes our local Topanga Elementary, and Paul Revere, Pali High and Calabasas High.
Hotline: 213-443-1300.

Take precautions for yourself and others.  In order to prevent serious stress on our health care system, first call your doctor for instruction if you are sick.  In general, and to protect yoursef and others, use recommended hygiene practices and social distancing!  Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Cover your cough or sneeze. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.  

Practice social distancing: Keep at least six feet or more between yourself and others, avoid shaking hands, and avoid crowded areas. If you have a chronic disease, like lung disease, diabetes, cancer, a compromised immune system, are over 60 or pregnant, avoid unnecessary travel, unnecessary gatherings and events. If you need help with shopping or picking up prescriptions, sign up for delivery services, or reach out for assistance on Nextdoor.com or your friendly TCEP Neighborhod Network (if one is established on your street).

There are ways to stay safe and continue a healthy lifestyle---stay in touch with friends and loved ones by social media, video chats and telephone.  Talk a walk on the beach, visit a park, shop local Topanga businesses, all while practicing safe distances. Join an online class or cuddle up with a nice book.  You can visit Los Angeles County's digital library at lacountylibrary.org.  Continue keeping your body and mind healthy---and as stress-free as possible.  If you need help, reach out to the government links provided above.

We wish everyone good health and to be safe.
