HAWAIIAN GARDENS, CA – The City of Hawaiian Gardens is taking measures to proactively respond to the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) implementing temporary changes to City plans and operations. Among these changes will be the cancellation of upcoming large-scale City events, including the annual Carnival, Easter Egg Hunt, and the postponement of the annual Arbor Day event. The City is also taking additional actions to sanitize City facilities, and granting more flexibility to the public and City Council in regard to meeting scheduling. Additional actions and details related to impact on City services will be forthcoming and residents will be updated as soon as possible.

“Given the evolving nature of the Coronavirus situation, Hawaiian Gardens is doing what is necessary to protect the health and safety of our residents,” says Mayor Jesse Alvarado. “We are also hiring additional staff to maintain sanitary conditions at all City facilities.

We will continue to monitor this situation and notify the public of any further actions.”
