The alarming uptick also prompted the county government to ban all fireworks displays and close the county's beaches.

"Due to the increasing number of COVID cases - 19, all beaches in Los Angeles County will be again temporarily closed this weekend, July 3-6, "county official Janice Hahn wrote on Twitter".

On Wednesday, Orange County confirmed five additional coronavirus-related deaths and 570 new COVID-19 cases.

"Closing the beaches and banning fireworks during this important summer vacation weekend was an incredibly hard decision to make, but it is the responsible decision to protect public health and protect our residents from a deadly virus", said Barbara Ferrer, Los Angeles County Director.

Garfield, the state's least populous county, remains the only county without a reported case.

"The rising patient volume in our hospitals will likely fill all of the intensive care unit beds that are now available", County Health Public Services Director Dr. Christina Ghaly said.
