LA County coronavirus deaths surge to 65; demand for testing challenges supply

A total of 65 new coronavirus deaths were reported by Los Angeles County public health authorities on Wednesdya, July 8 — a further reflection of a surge across the region that is once again taxing the ability to test for the virus and again forcing hospitals to scale up to meet demand. The county’s latest toll, coupled with 2,496 new cases of COVID-19, helped drive the daily 7-day average positivity rate up to 10.4%, a level that the county hasn’t seen since late-April. Public Health chief Barb...

HAWTHORNE — Hawthorne-based SpaceX will try again Wednesday to launch 57 internet satellites into orbit from Cape Canaveral in Florida as it continues its quest to build a worldwide broadband network.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, July 7, moved toward putting teeth into enforcing the county’s public health orders amid growing concern that lax enforcement is fueling the spread of the coronavirus.

Coronavirus: Will tenants, landlords, taxpayers split the bill for unpaid rent?

Mounting debts for unpaid rent during the pandemic could upend the state’s apartment industry — throwing tenants out on the street and choking small landlords unable to make mortgage payments. But an unprecedented state Senate plan is moving forward to give tax breaks to landlords for forgiving rents and halting evictions, and allow tenants 10 years to repay back debt to the state. And the estimated cost to taxpayers? Up to $10 billion over the life of the program. “We’re trying to stabilize the...

Judge upholds Hawaii’s pandemic quarantine on arriving travelers

By JENNIFER SINCO KELLEHER HONOLULU — A U.S. judge will not stop Hawaii from enforcing a quarantine on arriving travelers, saying in a ruling that the emergency mandate is reasonable during the public health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. A group of Hawaii, California and Nevada residents tried to stop the quarantine by filing a lawsuit alleging it is unfair and unnecessary. It violates the fundamental right to travel freely, they argued. The quarantine mandate, which applies to out-...

Are you able to pay your rent?

Apartment rents in Southern California have risen steadily for the past nine years, crimping household budgets. Many tenants report having to cut back on food, clothing, health care and other essentials as rent increases eat up a growing share of their disposable income. The coronavirus pandemic created even more problems for tenants, with many struggling with reduced hours, unemployment or lost business income. Others have caught COVID-19 or had to care for family members who have the virus. Th...

Will foreclosures explode once the moratorium is lifted?

Remember the nursery rhyme refrain, “We all fall down?” The incredible uptick of COVID-19 is like a raging California wildfire. Earlier this week Dr. Anthony Fauci surmised the U.S. could experience 100,000 new coronavirus cases per day. With the U.S. population at roughly 337 million, it would take just over one year for everyone in the U.S. to get this virus if its trajectory doesn’t change. Horrifying! Assuming more Americans take hold of safer social distancing and other preventive practices...

Where to get financial help during coronavirus in California

From hotel rooms for people who are homeless to restaurant meals for seniors isolating for their lives, California has rapidly expanded its safety net in an attempt to catch millions of residents impacted by the coronavirus and its economic aftershocks.

Gavin Newsom announced new “first-in-the-nation” plans to protect vulnerable Californians from illness or financial distress at a dizzying pace. But months in, the pandemic safet...

Can’t find coins? They’re the latest in short supply amid pandemic

First, it was toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Those were among the first items to fly off the shelves as COVID-19 took hold, prompting stay-at-home orders and the closure of nonessential businesses. Then came the meat shortage, and a persistent lack of surface wipes. The latest commodity to come up short? Pocket change — the stuff we carry in pockets and wallets, stash in nightstands, jars and the niches in our cars. Banks around the U.S. are running low on pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters,...

Coronavirus rebound? California shoppers see reasons to be optimistic

California shoppers recently showed a dash of financial hope to pollsters, thinking the worst of the pandemic’s economic wallop could be history.

Confidence bottomed in April, tumbling 32% that month, and the index is still do...

Pre-COVID evictions, on hold since March, resuming in San Bernardino County

That means two counties in Southern California have resumed efforts to whittle eviction backlogs. Orange County began evicting tenants at the start of June. Los Angeles and Riverside counties still have all evictions on hold, sheriffs spokespeople told the Southern California News Group. Evictio...

As the Los Angeles County economy reopened from stay-at-home orders, 33,100 jobs were added in May. Despite the uptick, employment is still 15% below pre-coronavirus levels. My trusty spreadsheet — filled with state job figures, not seasonally adjusted — found local bosses had 3.95 million employees last month. This staffing level, derived from a survey of employers, was up 0.8% from April as business limitations were eased. Still, the economy — largely iced by efforts to slow the spread of coro...
