Safer at Home restrictions have been extended to at least July 4, 2020, in Los Angeles County. There are gradual amd measured reopenings happening. Governor Newsom issued guidelines for reopening California that provide some information on criteria counties must meet to move past the initial Stage 2 orders.
While this is a tremendous burden on businesses and individuals, I am supportive of the effort to keep us all free of the Coronavirus. 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.
That said, I hope all are safe and well.

Judson International School has maintained our high academic quality during this season of distance learning for all grades K-12. We plan to return to regular classroom instruction in August 2020 with appropriate social distancing measures. Here's how we maintained our high standard during distance learning: * K-4th grade students have regular Zoom meetings as a class with their teacher. The teachers are available online to help students with school work daily from 8:30 am-2:30pm. Our teachers also have one-on-one online conferences regularly with students. Judson has a weekly online elementary chapel as well as lessons in art, Spanish, computer, PE and music. We are hosting many special events online as well such as our Elementary Speech Meet, Field Day, Talent Show and Elementary Awards Ceremony. * 5th-12th grade students have maintained a regular school schedule, meeting with their teachers via Zoom each class period. Our academic program and high standards have been fully maintained with live instruction throughout the school day from 8:15 - 3:15 pm. Because of this, our students will not have fallen behind during distance learning but rather will be fully ready to be promoted to the next grade level. We plan to be back on campus to begin classes in August. We will be following all of the state of California regulations for safety. Because our average class size is 10, incorporating mandated physical distancing requirements for schools will be significantly easier for us at Judson to accomplish than for public schools and even for many private schools. We plan to add disinfecting of classrooms after each class period and install hand sanitizer stations through our building. We also have contingency plans in place in case we need to move to a hybrid model or another season of distance learning. So please be reassured that we are doing everything possible for the safety, well-being and educational progress of our Judson students. Please take advantage of our Virtual Tour and our Virtual Admissions Center. Feel free to email email@example.com with any questions.

Pete Whan of Keller Williams forwarded this: it's been about two months since the coronavirus pandemic put North America on pause. By now, you’ve probably noticed just how rapidly things are changing with this situation. With so much information out there, it can be difficult to make sense of it all — especially when it comes to the economy. To help you gain a bit of clarity, I wanted to share some highlights from an interview with real estate leader Brian Buffini and Dr. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of Research at the National Association of REALTORS®. They went over where the housing market stands right now, and you’ll find the takeaways from their conversation in the eReport below. I hope this leaves you with some peace-of-mind during these uncertain times. Just remember, this too shall pass. THE STATE OF REAL ESTATE DURING COVID-19: A great follow-up interview from Dr. Lawrence Yun on what to look forward to with the real estate market amidst the Covid-19. It is about 25 minutes long and worth the listen. Click HERE.

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.

2. Huntington Hospital is in dire need of blood donations. The need for blood is ongoing, and we now experiencing a severe blood shortage. As the only trauma center in the entire San Gabriel Valley, we rely on your generosity in order to help us keep a full supply of blood. Your support is extremely valuable as it makes a huge difference in meeting the health needs of our community.
In relation to the coronavirus, it is important that you are aware that blood donation is still a safe practice. There is no evidence that this coronavirus is transmissible by blood transfusion, and there have been no reported cases of transfusion transmission for any respiratory virus, including this coronavirus. Out of an abundance of caution, please note, that if you have traveled to: *China (including Hong Kong and Macau); *South Korea; *Japan; *Italy; *Iran ; in the last 28 days, please do not donate blood at this time. You will be eligible to donate 28 days after your departure from any of these countries. In addition, please note that at each blood drive and our Donor Center, our employees follow thorough safety protocols, including wearing gloves, routinely wiping down donor-touched areas, using sterile collection sets for each donation, and preparing the arm for donation with an aseptic scrub. We believe these mitigation measures will help ensure blood recipient safety, as well as staff and donor safety in reducing contact with those who may potentially have this respiratory infection. It is vital that we continue messaging to our community, the importance of blood donation from eligible, healthy donors at all times. Anyone that donates blood at Huntington Hospital from now through the end of April will receive 2 movie tickets or a $20 gift card (Target, Starbucks, In-N-Out or Amazon). If you are currently eligible, please contact the donor center and schedule your next donation at (626) 397-5422. We are located at 711 S. Fairmount Avenue, Pasadena 91105. Our hours of operation are, Monday – Thursday 9:30am to 4:30pm, Friday - 7:30 to 2:30pm. We validate your parking.
Donors must be 100% healthy, have a meal before donating, be well hydrated and bring a picture ID that contains your date of birth(preferably driver license). We appreciate your continued support, especially during this challenging time with the coronavirus. Please invite your family, friends and colleagues to support us.

3. The City of Hope Blood Donor Center continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on our blood supply as well as those of other suppliers. As the situation is evolving, there have been fewer donors due to cancelled blood drives resulting in less blood available for our patients. Over the last week we’ve experienced an even greater impact to the blood supply and there is really no substitute for donated blood. Consequently, it has become even more important that donors like you continue to donate blood. Individuals are not at risk of contracting COVID-19 through the blood donation process or via a blood transfusion. At this time we are only taking blood and platelet donations at City of Hope Blood Donor Center on Our Duarte Campus By Appointment Only. Visit iDonateBlood4Hope.org or call 626-218-7171. Our operators will guide you through a health screening and schedule your appointment.

Large boxes are then discarded and contents are brought inside. Cans/bags/boxes inside of large boxes are also disinfected. Produce and protein are immediately washed.
