[Editor’s note: This is a Bay Area News Group story on Santa Clara County deciding Wednesday night that it will follow the high school sports guidelines set by the California Department of Public Heath — a decision that came one day after the county said it would implement more restrictive measures that would have made it almost impossible for teams to play this school year.] *  *  *    *  *  *    *  *  *    *  *  *    *  *  *    *  *  * A confounding day of miscommunication surrounding the retu...

LA City Council focuses on equitable distribution of coronavirus vaccines

Several Los Angeles City Council members on Wednesday, Jan. 27, grilled county health and fire department officials about their efforts to roll out vaccines in communities that have been the most vulnerable to COVID-19, such as Boyle Heights, Pacoima, MacArthur Park and South Los Angeles. Those areas have among the highest COVID-19 death and case rates, but recent statistics from the county have shown that vaccination rates have been higher in more affluent areas, such as the west San Fernando V...

Local officials have no idea how the state is allocating vaccines

Local health officials say they’re stuck wondering how the state allocates vaccines. They’ve tried to peel back the curtain on a mysterious state formula only to have their curious questions met with vague or nonexistent answers; reporters didn’t have any better luck. And the timing couldn’t be worse. The public is clamoring for inoculations against the coronavirus while doses trickle in from the federal government to California — which must then distribute the vaccines down the line. It’s the l...

Disneyland will launch a new annual pass program, and these factors will determine when

Answering the question of when Disneyland launches a new annual pass program is as complex and unpredictable as the coronavirus pandemic and largely out of the Anaheim theme park’s control.

Newsom, Legislature must urgently prioritize kids and reopen schools

We are in a crisis. Not just a health crisis, but a kid crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc on nearly every aspect of our daily lives, the economy and our health system. But the most overlooked and forgotten are our kids, who have sadly been the collateral damage of a pandemic that has forced school, daycare and even playground closures during the most critical time of their lives. And while the COVID-19 virus may be sparing their physical health, kids are increasingly experiencing c...

Pandemic hypocrites in office

After Joe Biden’s inauguration, he ordered everyone on federal lands to wear a mask. That night, he and his family posed for pictures at the Lincoln Memorial — none of them wearing a mask. California Gov. Gavin Newsom told Californians it’s “essential” to avoid “mixing with people outside of your household.” Then he had dinner with lots of people outside his household, without masks. Newsom did apologize for attending “a friend’s birthday party.” Maybe you heard about that. But you might not kno...

When can Disneyland reopen? The answer comes with a huge asterisk

It seems like the simplest question, but it is one that has vexed fans and operators alike for more than 10 months now: When can Disneyland and other California theme parks reopen? The simple answer comes with the world’s biggest asterisk: California theme parks can reopen as soon as mid-March. That would be nearly a year to the day since Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flag Magic Mountain, SeaWorld San Diego, Legoland California and other California theme parks ...

‘Unparalleled heroism’: Inland CHP officers presented Medal of Valor

On Aug. 12, 2019, California Highway Patrol Officer Robert Paul was standing by on the Eucalyptus Avenue offramp of the 215 Freeway in Riverside as motorcycle Officer Andre Moye Jr. prepared to have a vehicle towed. Suddenly, the driver retrieved a rifle from his pickup and unloaded on Moye, who fell about 20 feet from Paul, and then turned his weapon on Paul. Paul suffered crippling wounds to his legs and would later say he believed he was going to perish there. Yet, lying on his back behind hi...

New rules: COVID-19 dominates California’s latest workplace regulations

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, California lawmakers and regulatory agencies spent much of 2020 passing legislation and issuing regulations to prevent and address the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. Many of these laws and regulations went into effect Jan. 1 and will continue impacting California businesses well beyond 2021. New measures in workplaces California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health approved sweeping emergency temporary standards on COVID-19 infection preve...

EDD audit: Agency unprepared for years, claims backlog likely to persist

California’s labor agency was woefully unprepared for the recession-linked spike in jobless claims last year and may continue to face a stubbornly high backlog of unpaid unemployment claims, according to a report released Tuesday by the state auditor. The state auditor listed an array of failures and mishaps at the Employment Development Department, which has consistently faltered in its efforts to pay benefits to workers who lost their jobs in record numbers amid coronavirus-linked business shu...

California public schools suffer record enrollment drop of 155,000 students

California’s K-12 public-school enrollment has precipitously declined during the pandemic, dropping by a record 155,000 students, according to new state projections. That drop-off is about five times greater than California’s annual rate of enrollment decline in recent years. The state, which boasts the largest student enrollment in the country, has seen a steady decline of between 20,000 and 30,000 students in its public schools in the two years prior partly due to declining birth rat...

California reveals data used to lift stay-at-home order

SACRAMENTO — California’s health department on Monday released to the public previously secret projections for future hospital intensive care unit capacity throughout the state, the key metric for lifting the coronavirus stay-at-home order. However, state officials did not explain how regional per capita virus cases and transmission rates that also were released might influence how much ICU space will be available in four weeks. Last week, state health officials told The Associated Press they we...

California employment takes a downturn

Another day and still another maneuver in California’s erratic management of the COVID-19 pandemic. On Monday, officials lifted California’s most recent stay-at-home order, giving businesses — small businesses mostly — and their employees permission to take a couple of baby steps toward reopening profitable operations. It’s not a moment too soon. Employers and employees alike have suffered mightily as Gov. Gavin Newsom periodically imposed and then lifted restrictions in hopes of, as he puts, “b...

Coronavirus: LAUSD officials say lack of clear reopening guidance from state hampering negotiations

With the deadline for applying for the state’s Safe Schools for All reopening grant a week away, Los Angeles Unified School District leaders are pressing state and county health officials for a clearer definition as to what constitutes a safe learning environment, saying the lack of consistent guidance is why the district and local teachers union have yet to reach an agreement on returning students to campus. One major hang-up has been over the proposal by Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration that...

End of stay-at-home order good for high school cross country, but means little to other sports

The lifting of the state’s stay-at-home order by health officials on Monday, Jan. 25, was seen as a bit of good news for high school sports in Southern California, as it cleared the way for cross country teams to start their seasons immediately. But there were some administrators and coaches that were hesitant to get too hopeful with so many other sports still facing uncertain futures due to the pandemic. Until Monday’s action by the California Department of Public Health, high school sports com...

Federal court strikes down some COVID-19 church restrictions, leaves others intact

A federal appeals court on Monday handed a partial victory to a Pasadena church by agreeing to its request to strike down state coronavirus rules setting specific church attendance numbers, but the court still upheld other limits on worship services in areas hit hard by the pandemic. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in response to a lawsuit brought by Harvest Rock Church, barred state-imposed indoor church attendance restrictions of 100 and 200 people for areas that ...

By Adam Beam | The Associated Press California plans to extend eviction protections through the end of June while using federal money to pay off up to 80% of most tenants’ unpaid rent, according to an agreement announced Monday between Gov. Gavin Newsom and the state’s top two legislative leaders. The proposal, which must be approved by the state Legislature, would extend a state law scheduled to expire next Monday that prevents landlords from evicting tenants who could not pay their rent betwee...

After Newsom lifts state decree, 2 LA County supervisors swiftly urge reopening outdoor dining

When Gov. Gavin Newsom  lifted the wider stay-at-home orders Monday, Jan. 25, the state returned to a county-by-county approach to monitoring the coronavirus outbreak. That puts Los Angeles County — burdened with some of the highest rates of infection and death in the country — back into the “purple tier” indicating widespread transmission. With decisions back in the hands of local leaders, the move could signal the reopening of outdoor dining, but it was unclear if changes were at hand. The dec...

Will reducing criminal penalties reduce crime?

California is conducting an immense sociological experiment, testing whether reducing prison time for criminal acts will, in the long run, mean less crime. Over the last decade, politicians and voters have lowered penalties for dozens of serious and minor crimes, reduced state prison populations by about 40% and adopted multiple programs to treat underlying conditions, such as drug use and lack of education, to deter offenders from committing new crimes. It’s been a dramatic turnaround from prev...

Case for a Newsom recall continues to grow

After some fits and starts, the recall effort against Gov. Gavin Newsom appears to be gaining traction. Proponents say they have collected over 1 million signatures. Media reports of a half-million dollar donation to the effort plus rumors of even more forthcoming are getting the attention of California’s political establishment. If the required 1.5 million valid signatures are submitted before the mid-March deadline and subsequently verified, a special election will be held and California voter...

It’s unclear what the repercussions might be if the union and district are unable to reach agreements by Sunday, though the parties could mutually consent to extend the deadline. Even if ag...

State parole board panel recommends parole for onetime Manson follower

A state parole board panel Friday recommended parole for Bruce Davis, a onetime Manson Family follower who was convicted in two killings in 1969. Davis, now 78, has been found suitable for parole six previous times, with three different governors reversing the recommendation for parole. Most recently, Gov. Gavin Newsom blocked Davis’ release in November 2019. Former governors Jerry Brown and Arnold Schwarzenegger had also reversed the parole board’s recommendation. Davis was convicted of first-d...
