LOS ANGELES – A garment factory in downtown Los Angeles, California, has been closed after an investigation by the Los Angeles Department of Public Health (DPH) found there had been more than 300 cases of the coronavirus at the site, leading to the deaths of four people.

Throughout June and July, the city’s department has been in contact with Dov Charney, the owner of Los Angeles Apparel, after rumours surfaced on June 19 of a possible COVID-19 outbreak at the factory.

It’s reported that a failure to implement adequate infection control measures and provide complete employee lists has held back the DPH’s work, which eventually concluded that there had been over 300 positive cases of the virus at the factory. Charney says blame can’t solely be left at his door, as there was a lack of clarity on best practices for protecting workers from the DPH.
