A jump in cases was expected Tuesday as the system catches up.The new tallies raised Pasadena’s total documented COVID-19 infections to 4,822, according to city data. The local death toll stood at 139.Prior to Monday’s apparent data issue, the city’s average daily cases over the prior week had begun a downturn, lowering to 87.1 on Sunday after reaching an all-time high of 94.4.Huntington Hospital continued to report unprecedented levels of COVID-19 patients, with 120 patients being treated at the facility on Monday. Twenty-two of them, or about 18%, were being treated in 30 available intensive care units, for an available ICU capacity of 27%, Huntington Hospital President/CEO Lori Morgan.Meanwhile, the ICU capacity rate across the 11-county Southern California region had dropped to 2.7%, according to the California Department of Public Health. An ICU capacity below 15% triggered the current regionally stay-at-home orders.Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials reported 7,344 additional COVID-19 infections and 7,344 new deaths on Monday, raising the county-wide totals to 532,730 cases of the virus and 8,345 deaths.The county data included some backlogged cases from a single “large lab,” the agency said in a written statement.“Since the beginning of the surge on November 1, cases have increased 625% with younger people continuing to drive the increase in community transmission in the county,” the statement said. “More than 70% of cases are from people under the age of 50 years old.”HOspitalizations across L.A. County surpassed 4,200, officials said. Twenty-one percent of the COVID-19 patients were being treated in intensive care units.“Since December 1, the County has surpassed previous all-time highs every day,” according to the county statement.Although younger populations have been at the forefront of the surge, the elderly continue to see the highest rates of hospitalization, according to the L.A. County Department of Public Health.“By next weekend, there are likely to be over 5,000 patients hospitalized and more than 50% of ICU beds occupied by COVID-19 patients,” the statement warned.“Equally important” as available ICU beds are the staff necessary to operate them, according to the county.“The recent surge in cases has resulted in huge increases in cases among our healthcare workers,” the statement said. “In the last two weeks there have been over 3,400 new cases among healthcare workers.”As the first vaccines arrived in the county on Monday, L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer thanked those who made it possible.Distribution of the vaccine will take time, and vigilance remains necessary during the ongoing surge, she said.“Because it is likely to take a few months to have enough vaccine available to immunize the millions of individuals who live and work in L.A. County, in the meantime, we all must continue to remain extremely diligent in reducing transmission of the virus,” according to Ferrer.“We continue to see extremely high numbers of new cases, hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19. The surge we are experiencing is alarming. If you are not playing by the rules, to be blunt, you are part of the problem, and at this point, you are contributing to these distressing increases in cases, hospitalizations, and deaths,” she said.State public health officials reported 33,278 new infections and 77 additional fatalities on Monday.In total, the state had seen 1,585,044 cases of the virus and 21,046 deaths, according to a California Department of Public Health statement.The statewide average positivity rate over the prior week had reached 10.6%, and the 14-day average was 10.5%, officials said.As of Monday, L.A. County represented 34% of California’s COVID-19 infections and 40% of the state’s fatalities.See also:Huntington Hospital Intensive Care Unit 75 Percent Full Make a comment Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Previous Article Next Article Ihave been HR and training officer for a housing association for 15 months andhave just discovered that my role and that of the facilities manager are to bemerged from April. I can apply for this post, but there is no guarantee I willbe successful – this is my first HR post. The timescale gives me a few monthsto find another post, but my relatively short experience will not help. I havegained a broad base of knowledge as it is a relatively small organisation and Iran the department virtually single-handedly for three months while my managerwas on sick leave. How can I make the best of the experience that I do have? Iam also considering looking for an interim appointment to get me out of thepublic sector.AnnaCook, project co-ordinator, Chiumento Facilitiesmanagement is a completely separate sector to HR. Unless this particularlyappeals to you, you run the risk of diluting your HR experience with somethingthat will not be perceived as of much value to prospective employers.Ifyou want to stay in HR but want to move to the private sector, you will have todevelop a strategy that focuses on your transferable skills and experience.Highlighting the time you spent covering for your boss and detailing yourachievements will help do this. Workon your CV to ensure it does you justice. Highlight your experience andachievements – things you have done that have made a difference in your currentrole.  Circulate it to HR agencies, andask for feedback and tips on making it more attractive to private-sectoremployers.Interimwork could offer an opportunity for you, but you may find your lack ofexperience makes this harder than you think.Atthis stage, it probably makes sense to try to find a job with an organisationthat will increase your HR experience.MargaretMalpas, joint managing director, Malpas Flexible LearningYouhave a lot going for you in applying for the combined post and it wouldcertainly increase your experience. The HR role is more demanding of specificknowledge than the FM role, and you have proved yourself to be able by coveringthe sickness period. FMis about property management and is usually a very pragmatic area. There istraining available, such as the BIFM parts 1 and 2, which we and a few otherproviders offer. A lot of the syllabus is on management and personnel and youcould learn up on property portfolio management, premises maintenance andproperty law quite easily.  Myadvice is to go for it – there are always lots of opportunities for doublyqualified people, and you may never get such a good chance again!JoSelby, associate director, EJ Human ResourcesIfyou are finding that your length of experience is going against you, you maywish to review your CV and ensure that you are communicating your depth ofexperience effectively, detailing your achievements in the role. In addition,make sure that you also include the experience you gained during youruniversity work placements as they too will have given you valuable HRexposure. Whenyou register with agencies, ensure that they fully understand the depth of yourcurrent role and gain their input as to the kind of opportunities available toyou.Interimappointments are worth considering as they can give you the opportunity to workin different environments and learn different skills while you are looking forthe right permanent role.
