LOS ANGELES - If you lost your job due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – help is on the way.
Mayor Eric Garcetti announced a new website designed to help Los Angeles residents who may have lost their jobs or had their hours cut back as a result of COVID-19.
The website, LAJobsPortal.org, provides recourses as well as job postings.
“This is a site that will connect folks with help and jobs with important resources and easy to read one page formats in both English and Spanish,” Garcetti stated during a press conference Friday evening.
He says the website is constantly updating, calling it a one stop shop for out-of-place workers.
During the press conference Garcetti also announced a new 11 million dollar loan program to help support small local businesses during this crisis. He hopes state and federal officials jump in and help as well.

This announcement comes a day after Los Angeles County officials issued a “Safer At Home'' order, calling on people to remain at home as much as possible in response to the coronavirus.
On Friday the mayor said he saw Angelenos acting as one, helping others out and following the new order.
“Suddenly our big city feels like a small town,” Garcetti stated.
