The number of Covid-19 cases is declining in LA County. Schools in Santa Clarita opened one day a week Monday. The Big Blue Bus Company in Santa Monica is now charging fares again. Passengers no longer need enter through the rear door. They enter up front and pay the bus driver, again.
The number of coronavirus cases and deaths appear to be declining, just as the lockdowns reach a one year anniversary on March 16th. Cases and deaths have fallen 70% in six weeks.
MTA busses in Los Angeles remain free and enter through the rear.
