The city of Manhattan Beach has created a "COVID-19 Dashboard" to inform the community about the latest data on novel coronavirus cases.
Manhattan Beach's Information Technology Department developed the interactive dashboard to better inform the community of data the city receives and reviews from county, state and federal jurisdictions. The interactive map highlights the number of COVID-19 confirmed cases across several South Bay cities.
As of Thursday morning, there have been 52 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Manhattan Beach.
Other COVID-19 related updates for Manhattan Beach include:
Social Distancing Signage: The city of Manhattan Beach has placed additional signage at Polliwog Park to emphasize that violators will be subject to citations with fines of up $1,000 or criminal prosecution. Over the weekend, the city issued 129 citations for social distancing violations, 30 of which were at Polliwog Park.
Limiting Construction: On Friday, April 10, the City Council will discuss and consider limiting all construction to five days a week by potentially prohibiting construction on Monday or Saturday. Types of construction projects that may be subject to the restrictions include residential, commercial, public projects, and school district projects.

Water Meter Access: The city of Manhattan Beach has urged residents to make sure that city staff has access to each household's water meter box, and minimize the need for staff to touch anything on the property other than the water meter box itself. In some cases, unrestricted access is not possible, but in other cases, city staff have had to access gates, move yard furniture, or push aside plants to access the water meter.
Discarded Gloves and Masks: Due to a large number of discarded gloves and masks being found on the ground, Mayor Richard Montgomery has urged Manhattan Beach residents to be mindful about throwing protective gear in a trash can once it is used.
