The LACDA reconfigured offices and lobby spaces for staff to enable them to continue to work safely onsite and prepare for when the agency is able to open its doors again to the public. Reconfigurations included new plexiglass windows at public housing offices, touchless water faucets, improved air systems, and sanitizer dispensers. The LACDA also established enhanced cleaning protocols, focusing on thorough cleaning practices in the evening when there were fewer employees in the office.
The LACDA’s Human Resources staff undertook exceptional hiring efforts, preparing and supporting over 100 new hires during the COVID-19 health crisis. They conducted virtual recruitments and screenings to safely bring new employees on board.
