Dressed in a Star Wars theme to celebrate Star Wars Day, bartender Karissa Marston jokingly strikes a pose while making a cocktail for a customer at Scum and Villainy Cantina, a geek bar located on Hollywood Blvd, in Los Angeles, Tuesday, May 4, 2021.

Los Angeles County, which is home to a quarter of the state's nearly 40 million people and has endured a disproportionate number of the state's 60,000 deaths, didn't record a single COVID-19 death Sunday or Monday, which was likely due to incomplete weekend reporting but still noteworthy.
