City of Pasadena officials announced 13 new local cases of the Coronavirus on Thursday and one additional fatality as the city’s case count continued to move towards 2,000. So far there have been 1,956 cases and 106 deaths. Meanwhile cases at Huntington Hospital appear to be on the decline.
There is a requirement that everyone in California wear a protective mask in public. Masks are not only to protect you from other people, but to protect others from being infected by you or someone else who may have the virus but not be showing symptoms (or not care that they are).
Safer at Home restrictions have been extended, in Los Angeles County and may stretch into the fall given the increase in cases. There are gradual and measured reopenings happening (see COVID-19 Updates). Governor Newsom continusously revises guidelines for reopening California that provide some information on criteria counties must meet to move forward.
While this is a tremendous burden on businesses and individuals, the safety, health and security of our families, customers, clients, empoyees and colleagues is the highest priority. Our best outcome is to keep our communities and residents safe so, once businesses are able to reopen, they can serve healthy customers who are not worried about being infected.

South Coast Air Quality Management District has a VIP program to replace small truck fleets. The VIP is a streamlined approach to reduce emissions by replacing old, high-polluting vehicles with newer, lower-emission vehicles. This program is limited to owners/operators with fleets of 10 or fewer vehicles that have been operating at least 75% (mileage-based) in California during the previous twenty four (24) months.The goal of this program is to reduce emissions from in-use heavy-duty trucks in small fleets by replacing Engine Model Years 2009 and older with Engine Model Years 2013 (or newer) emissions compliant models. The VIP is implemented by South Coast AQMD through contractual agreements with Dealers and Dismantlers. The Dealers will apply to South Coast AQMD for the vouchers on behalf of the applicant. If approved, the voucher amount will be deducted from the total purchase price of the truck by the Dealer. Applicants interested in replacing their truck must purchase their replacement truck through an South Coast AQMD-approved VIP Participating Dealership that has completed the required training for the VIP. A current list of South Coast AQMD approved Dealerships and Dismantlers is included below. Additional updates to these lists will be posted on our webpage as they become available. https://youtu.be/ekp6HTMPdMo

Pasadena POPS is offering online concerts. For Play at Home with the POPS subscribe to our Youtube channel.
Gerry Rothschild (of Gerry Rothschild Band fame) can provide a concert on your block. No payment required, just tips and in introduction. Here's how it works (from the troubador's own email: Driveway concert on your block: 1 1/2 hour concert. I play for tips but have a sign with suggested tip $20.00. I’ll have a tip jar spaced away from me and I’ll also have my Venmo handle on a sign. The block will need a host. It’s up to the “host” to get the word out to everyone on the block. The more people who are able to attend makes it more worthwhile. “Host” will introduce me letting people know who I am and that I am a professional musician who is playing for tips. Please encourage them to tip and mention the suggested amount of $20.00. Below you will see what the host at the last one put out. Of course this is just an example. I need electricity at the “stage” location. I can’t play on grass. I play a wide variety of songs and will take requests and play them if I know them. Concerts are in late afternoon or evening but need to end at least 1hour before dark.
