Also, there was another death recorded for Torrance today (again). This is the third death among Torrance residents this week and raises their cumulative total to fifty-six and their mortality rate to 37.5 per 100,000 residents. Both of these are substantially higher than any of the other South Bay beach cities.

Both of these are substantially higher than any of the other South Bay beach cities. The Costco location on Hindry Avenue in Hawthorne is now up to eleven confirmed cases among their staff. No other Costco locations are currently listed in the county Public Health department’s reports.
