4 Workers Die From Coronavirus at Los Angeles Apparel

Los Angeles Garment Manufacturer Closed Amid Outbreak

Los Angeles, CA (July 10, 2020) – A garment manufacturer in Los Angeles has been forced to shut down by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health after more than 300 employees contracted the coronavirus. Four people have died – three in June and one in July.

Los Angeles Apparel was first shut down on June 27 after the company was found to be in violation of the county’s mandatory health orders. Inspectors visited the factory on June 26 and found multiple violations of social distancing and infection control protocols. The factory was given instructions for reopening.

On July 4, the health department received a list showing that 198 employees had tested positive. However, test results from laboratories showed that there were more than 300 positive cases at Los Angeles Apparel.

The health department stated that only employees who tested positive on or before June 26 could return to work. Los Angeles Apparel, however, reopened with new employees, violating the order. The company must now remain closed until it has complied with the health department’s mandates.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones of the victims.
