LA County unveils plan to vaccinate teachers, other essential workers, starting March 1

Teachers in Los Angeles County can begin receiving the coronavirus vaccine on Monday, March 1 — but just how many doses will be available for educators will depend on supply, which is still just an estimate. Among the slightly more than 200,000 vaccine doses that officials expect, 25% to 29% will go toward teachers and administrators, with 9% of those doses going to private school teachers and staff. First priority for doses goes to those with second-dose appointments. The remainder will be divi...

Analysis of proposed LA city ‘hero pay’ measure warns of possible layoffs, higher costs

Los Angeles city officials, weighing a potential mandate on grocery stores to provide “hero pay” increases to essential workers, have released a 21-page analysis of the potential economic impacts. The assessment concluded that it could lead to higher pay for workers that could be funneled back into a recovering  economy — but it also warned of potential layoffs or reductions to employee work hours. Struggling grocers, particularly independent shops, could be under more pressure and could even cl...

With more federal coronavirus relief likely, LA County scrutinizes impact of CARES dollars

Gearing up for more federal coronavirus relief money, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Feb. 23, called for a detailed report on the impact of CARES Act dollars the county received last year.

LA County officials have harsh words for coronavirus vaccine inequity – and line-jumping cheaters

Just one week away from expanding eligibility for the coronavirus vaccine by up to 1.8 million people, Los Angeles County officials are worried the online system required by the state to book appointments will continue to pose challenges in communities hit hardest by the pandemic. Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Hilda Solis said on Tuesday, Feb. 23, that she was “not surprised,” but nonetheless “disgusted” by certain people using any means necessary to obtain vaccine doses. “I can tell you I was...

Check out this checklist for helping your cat live a longer, healthier, happier life

I’ve had cats as pets my entire life. As an adult, my longest term relationship was with a cat named Bailey. For nearly 21 years, he ran my house and allowed me to be his doting housekeeper, errand boy, and personal ear scratcher. When he passed away in July of 2018, he left a hole in my heart that hasn’t been refilled since. He was 22 lbs of ornery, dismissive, aloof, and passive aggressive love who was probably the most astute judge of character I’ve ever met. He knew almost instantly whether ...

Inspectors find ‘deficiencies’ at virus test lab in Valencia

By DON THOMPSON | The Associated Press Inspectors found “significant deficiencies” at California’s new coronavirus testing laboratory, problems that state officials on Monday, Feb. 22, partly blamed on the rapid ramp-up they required from the lab’s private operator under terms of a $1.4 billion contract. A fraction of 1% of the more than 1.5 million tests processed at the Valencia Branch Laboratory had problems, the state said in a preliminary report, but Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. ...

‘Partial herd immunity’ emerging, but some challenge the value of that status

It was nearly a year ago when Gov. Gavin Newsom, not long into a statewide lockdown, referenced the elephant in the COVID-19 room: herd immunity. The concept was frightening to many; with no vaccine in sight, they feared the only way it could be attained was for the virus to have infected enough people to have run out of hosts. Estimates of the looming toll at the time were chilling: as many as 840,000 Californians dead and 1.4 million seriously ill. National, state and local officials, meanwhil...
