LA County Update 7/8/21 - Recovery Resources: Mobile Vaccination Units, Vaccinating Home-Bound Residents, Decline-in-Value Assessments for Businesses
Mobile Vaccination Units Make it Easier Than Ever to get Vaccinated
One of our primary strategies for improving access to vaccines is deploying additional mobile vaccination teams that take vaccines into neighborhoods to reach people who may have limited ability or time to get to one of the established vaccination sites.
The mobile vaccine teams are working with employers and community organizations to provide vaccines at convenient locations where residents gather. We encourage employers and event organizers to fill out the online request form to let us know when they want to host a team. We have sites set up at workplaces, markets, schools, churches, senior centers, and other gathering places all over the county to make it as easy as possible for residents to get vaccinated.

Vaccinating Homebound Residents
In the video above, learn more about how nurses are fanning out across LA County to make vaccinations available to homebound residents.
People who are homebound can request a vaccinator for an in-home vaccination by contacting the Public Health Vaccine Call Center at (833) 540-0473. Homebound residents can also fill out a form on the Public Health website to request this service.

Decline-in-Value Assessments for Businesses Affected by COVID-19 Pandemic
While home prices have skyrocketed during the pandemic, many small businesses and retail property owners have struggled to hang-on despite significant losses. Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Los Angeles County Assessor's Office is proactively reviewing small business and other commercial properties to determine if they are entitled to property tax relief.
If you think your property lost value because of the pandemic-induced recession, you may be eligible for a decline-in-value review of your property’s assessment. The filing period to request a review runs through November 30, 2021.
Learn more at assessor.lacounty.gov.
Updated Indoor Masking Recommendations
With more circulation of the highly transmissible Delta variant, the Department of Public Health strongly recommend everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks indoors in public places as a precaution. Per the CDC, the Delta variants are now responsible for 1 in 5 new cases across the country.
