Pasadena reached a tragic milestone on Sunday, July 19, with the reporting of its youngest death to date.

By News Desk

A 30-year old had several underlying health conditions that pre-disposed him to severe illness.

Pasadena spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said:

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his family from our City family.

We also have 30 incident cases, continuing our rising risk and dates of exposure that still align with the 4th of July.

Pasadena’s numbers for Sunday, July 19, are 30 new confirmed cases and one additional death since yesterday. (Check the latest numbers from Pasadena and all the surrounding cities and towns on our daily updated COVID-19 Dashboard).

The majority of newly reported COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County are in people under 41 years old.

Los Angeles County has confirmed 11 new deaths and 2,848 new cases of COVID-19. Fifty-three percent of the 2,848 new cases occurred in people under the age of 41 years old. There are 155,887 positive cases of COVID-19 in LA County, and a total of 4,095 deaths.


Business owners must take immediate action in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. Current Health Officer Orders require business owners to close indoor operations at many businesses and take immediate action to implement strategies that protect workers and customers.

Residents need to make sure they are doing their part as well. Health officials urge everyone to avoid the Three C’s:

  • Crowded places.
  • Confined spaces.
  • Close contact with others not in your household.

Everyone should always wear a face covering securely over their nose and mouth and keep six feet apart from others not in their household when out in public. Public Health reminds everyone that you remain safer at home.

You think you could be positive for COVID-19?

If you think you could be positive for COVID-19 and are awaiting testing results, it’s important to stay at home and act as if you are positive. This means self-isolating for 10 days and for 72 hours after symptoms and fever subside. If you test positive for COVID-19, you should expect to receive a call from a public health specialist to discuss how to protect yourself and others, to find out where you have been, and who you were in close contact with while infectious.
