The City of Brea values the safety and wellness of the entire community. Since the County of Orange declared a local health emergency on February 26, 2020, City officials have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. This is a rapidly evolving situation; the City will continue to provide updates as we have new information to share. The City will also continue to work closely with its community partners, including the Orange County Health Care Agency and Brea Olinda Unified School District, to be prepared and best able to respond.

As of Monday, May 18, City Hall has re-opened to the public by appointment only. City staff remains available to assist with business matters by phone or email. To contact a City department, a reference guide is available to download with contact information. If you need to make an in-person visit, please call 714-990-7600 before coming to City Hall. Please note, face coverings are required and appointment check-in is located at the 3rd floor reception desk. City staff is taking health measures to ensure the safety of both employees and visitors. If you feel sick, please stay home. Plexi glass barriers have been installed at all counters, hand sanitizing stations are located throughout the building and there is a limit of no more than three persons in an elevator at one time. As a precaution to reduce community spread of COVID-19, all other City facilities remain closed for public access until further notice. The City of Brea continues to remain focused on providing services to the community during this pandemic. 

At this time, we advise residents and businesses to follow all recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as local advisories from the California Department of Public Health and the Orange County Health Care Agency

The County of Orange has established a COVID-19 Hotline for inquiries related to the pandemic: 1-833-426-6411

COVID-19 Case Counts

July 9 Case CountThe Orange County Health Care Agency reports city-related data for COVID-19 cases daily. The information, along with other test figures, are available on their website.

Because transmission is occurring throughout Orange County, it is important for all residents to continue practicing social-distancing, as directed by the Governor and the Orange County Health Officer, regardless of case count in a particular city. Doing so will help to reduce the spread of infection, ease the burden on our hospital and healthcare system, and protect those most vulnerable in our county.
