Infection rates in California have been increasing since Governor Newsom loosened restrictions. Reported cases and deaths due to Coronavirus have risen recently in Los Angeles County. As a result, Governor Newsom reimposed the ban on indoor dining at restaurants and ordered all bars closed in 19 California counties, including Los Angeles.
There is a requirement that everyone in California wear a protective mask in public. Masks are not 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 into August, 2020, in Los Angeles County. There are gradual and measured reopenings happening (see COVID-19 Updates). Governor Newsom ordered all Californians to wear face coverings when in public. He 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.
That said, I hope all are safe and well.

Essential PPE For Reopening - The Space Sanitizing Mister: One of our newest members, Giana Korth, is here to solve all of your Reopening challenges with a game changing new machine - The Space Sanitizing Mister. This simple and elegant machine kills 99.9% of all viruses, bacteria, and germs in a 300 sq ft space. With its human and food safe air disinfecting capabilities, it can safely disinfect an entire room in 10-15 mins and will continuously do so while operating. Most importantly it provides a visible peace of mind, which we are finding one of the highest priorities upon reopening. It has become an invaluable product for many business owners across all industries - Healthcare offices, schools, gyms, spas, hotels, restaurants, office buildings, retail stores, etc. Giana is a Pasadena native, and her parent's local optometry practice, Charles J. Korth Optometry, was the inspiration behind this "Magical Mister" as her mom, René Korth, calls it. René was spending hours each day sanitizing equipment, glasses, countertops, etc; both for patient safety and peace of mind. It was becoming impossible to do this, while continuing their exceptional patient eye care. Now, with two Misters in the dispensing area and one in each exam room, all they have to do is turn the Mister on in the morning and they are good to go! If you are interested in seeing the Misters in action, feel free to stop by and check them out firsthand. They also have a number of other PPE products that may prove very beneficial, and are happy to source other items you may need. She looks forward to supporting your business in Reopening safely, effectively and as stress-free as possible! You can get more information and purchase the Misters directly through their company website here. For orders over 10, and all other questions, you can contact Giana directly at email@example.com or 626-818-1584.

Why donate blood to Huntington Hospital? As the only trauma center for the entire San Gabriel Valley, much of today’s medical care depends on a steady supply of blood from our generous community. The chronically low blood supplies can affect the trauma center and the hospital’s ability to help those in need. A donation to Huntington Hospital means blood is available for your family, friends, neighbors and community when it is needed. Unfortunately, due to the health crisis, we are unable to come to you with our bloodmobile, as it does not allow for social distancing, but you can come to us. We are taking our community donors, half a block south of the medical campus at 800 S. Fairmount Ave. Please call to schedule your appointment, at 626-397-5422, we welcome walk-ins, and validate parking. However, as more donors are returning to their place of employment, we would like to make blood donation(s) more convenient for our donors. Without the use of our bloodmobile the only way we can come to you is by holding blood drives at venues that have enough indoor space where we can set-up 3-5 beds, along with our registration, and post-donation refreshment area. We would like to enlist the support of the Pasadena Chamber’s members that have adequate indoor space and are willing to sponsor a blood drive for Huntington Hospital. If you don’t have the adequate space, perhaps you know someone that does. Please contact Huntington Hospital Blood Donor Center at (626) 397-5422 and ask for recruitment, we need your help!

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.

1. Pasadena Community Foundation is collecting donations to help local people impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic with food aid and other help. If you would like to donate to assist people in the Pasadena community, click here: https://pasadenacf.org/
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. 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. Huntington Hospital, Blood Donor Center (626) 397-5422.
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.

At Ultimate Health, I've decided to give people an option. I'm streaming free workouts on my facebook page, every day until the end of the month. Everything from seated workouts for the elderly to Cardio Kenpo. Some are live streaming and some are pre-recorded. The schedule is on the FB page, and it's open to anyone. If possible, maybe you can pass this along to all the members. www.facebook.com/ultimatehealth.coach
