Pasadena finished the workweek with a fifth straight day without a COVID-19 related death, officials said, also revealing seven new confirmed cases of the disease.

“We’re cautiously optimistic when we can report a week without deaths and lower case numbers,” said spokesperson Lisa Derderian, “although it’s also a week that presents orders/guidelines for the reopening of retail, hair salons and restaurants, etc., which will empower more people to venture out and potentially increase numbers in the near future.”

“We can’t emphasize enough the need to follow guidelines and safety protocol so we don’t see a large increase,” she said.
