And so the COVID-19 job losses and evictions begin

In link above....

 

"The state unemployment rate shot up from an all-time-low 3.6% in February to a record 22% last week, and another jump is expected with a state Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation report on Friday."

 

That is untenable. They will need to have a plan to deal with this (rent, mortgage, utilities, food, insurance, etc).

Gym owner defies shelter in place order and re-opens business. Looks like he is doing everything he can to live up to the spirit of shelter in place, so he can save his business.

 

https://www.kcra.com/article/after-arrest-california-gym-owner-defies-health-order-and-reopens/32480745#

 

 

Uridel, who has the support of at least one city councilman, said he hopes prosecutors will drop the case. He said he had no choice about reopening the gym.

“We lost a third of our membership that took us a year and a half to get,” Uridel said. “If we waited, with the bills mounting, we weren’t going to be able to recover.”

 

Large handwritten signs at the gym warn people that no one will be allowed in if they are coughing or show other symptoms, and that everyone must sign a waiver declaring they are not ill. It says all rules will be enforced, including no gym bags or showering at the gym, and members must wear masks and shirts at all times. Everyone must maintain six feet of space between each other, wipe down machinery after each use, and wash their hands before entering the gym and before leaving it.

Uridel said he also closes the gym every 90 minutes for deep cleaning and sanitizing.

I know. But devils advocate here, dead businesses and their unemployed workers do not pay taxes. States need money to operate. Out here in California, we are in a deficit now after having a surplus last year. Wildfire season is getting eerily close and widen the deficit all things being equal. One way or the other, the state will collect their share of the money.

That is a good read. If businesses are not allowed to open, they cannot survive indefinitely. Some will not make it, and I suspect many will not be able to rehire/unfurlough to 100%. It will be a major set back. Even if they do open, you need customers who can afford the things they used to do pre-covid19 and feel safe enough to go out.

 

"This morning we learned that another 3 million people had filed for unemployment over the last week. That brings the Coronatimes total to 36 million. It will go higher. The unemployment rate, at its peak, may end up being something like 20 or 25%. It was at 3.5% three months ago. The trauma of this moment still hasn’t registered. Everyone’s holding their breath to see how quickly these people can be hired back, or un-furloughed. The reopening. The rehiring. Perhaps initial jobless claims is not the right statistic to track and continuing jobless claims is."

I was asked today, if there was some sort of online resource available to find food banks in the area. I directed them to local TV news websites.

Our local Martial Arts School has all the protocols in place to help protect the members, including.....

 

- All Jiu-Jitsu classes are suspended indefinitely. 

- Every equipment you use, after your done, put in corner for cleaning (jump ropes, kettle balls, plates, bars, pads, gloves, wraps, etc).

- Limiting the amount of people to maintain 6' distance. 

- Closes every hour for cleaning.

- Take temp when you arrive. If your feeling ill, have a fever, or are coughing, you will be sent home

- No sparring.

 

But.......Until the Governor gives the OK, our Martial Arts School remains closed. When it does reopen, at least members can feel safe that protocols will help keep them safe. I am worried about long-term health complications by extended SIP orders. Sometimes, Gyms are the only resources some folks have to stay active and socialize, instead of developing depression or health issues (diet, heart, gastrointestinal, mental, etc). Remember the mantra, sitting is the new smoking.

That may be. It is peoples choice to do as they please. No one granted them immunity from illness.

We in SF already had a big homeless problem, but due to covid-19, it is worse then ever. Now, you have lawful, legal, and sanctioned homeless spaces at City Hall. It is controversial to say the least, but neighbors support it.

And yet some of those same people were whining and sniveling when Las Vegas wanted to do the same exact thing in the early days of the pandemic...I believe it was the parking lot behind the Linq that was painted with the 'social distancing' boxes.  Perhaps hege can confirm location...although it did quickly die out of the headlines.  Not sure how much use it actually got...
