    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said Wednesday that public protests are likely causing the number of citywide coronavirus cases to spike, just two days after claiming there wasn’t “any conclusive evidence” showing a connection between the two. Garcetti, a Democrat, was speaking at a press conference concerning the recent Black Lives Matter protests in Los Angeles when he was asked if the demonstrations were contributing to the spread of COVID-19. He claimed he’d consulted with Dr. Barbara Ferrer, LA County’s director of public health, and determined the protests were in fact contributing to the spread of the virus. “I talked...

    Los Angeles is requiring essentially everybody in the city wear a face covering at all times whenever outdoors, a policy Mayor Eric Garcetti says will help the local economy reopen faster. Garcetti announced the order on Wednesday evening, telling city residents: "Bring your mask with you whenever you leave your home." Children under 2, as well as a limited number of individuals with disabilities, are exempt from the order, the mayor's office said in a press release. "Face coverings help stop the spread of the virus," Garcetti, a Democrat, said in the release. "Wearing them whenever we’re away from home...

    She holds a doctorate in social welfare and masters degrees in public health and education. Dr. Stephanie Hall, the chief medical officer of USC’s Keck Hospital, acknowledged some initial concern among health care professionals that Ferrer was not a medical doctor like Fielding. But having worked with Ferrer on the county’s COVID-19 response, Hall applauded Ferrer’s work with her deputies and other experts. “I found her to be incredibly straightforward and honest. … When some people want to lead … sometimes they add a spin or try to make it appear they know more than they do,”
  • Woman Dictating LA County Shutdowns Isn’t a Medical Doctor, Paid More than $500K

    Los Angeles County Director of Public Health Dr. Barbara Ferrer made news Tuesday when she told the county’s board of Supervisors that the “Safer at Home” order would almost certainly be extended for three more months when it expired May 15. Outrage ensued, and the Board of Supervisors and Ferrer herself walked back those comments. Turns out that walk-back was just a giant “psych!” because Ferrer announced the new order Wednesday – one with no expiration date. But, give her credit for being literal – it wasn’t a three-month extension. To say that the vast majority of county residents are...

    Elected leaders in California say the state will remain shut down for the next few months, but a growing number of religious leaders are disregarding that guidance, revealing the tenuous state of the governments’ ability to enforce orders on unwilling people. California Church United, an organization which represents about 3,000 churches, announced on Tuesday its plans to open churches on May 31, no matter what Newsom says. Pastors joining the movement offered their positions on how they feel the governor has sidelined churches. “We're an essential part of this whole journey, and we've been bypassed, kicked to the curb, and...

    The mayor of LA has sent a terrifying warning to Angelinos that 'LA will never be completely open until we have a cure', one day after the county health director extended its lockdown by three months. Mayor Eric Garcetti gave a rambling interview with Good Morning America Wednesday in which he attempted to play down the lockdown extension through to August but sparked yet further confusion among angry residents over when it will reopen. Garcetti backpedaled on comments made by LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer on Tuesday. She had said stay-at-home orders in LA will 'with all certainty'...

    Maxine Waters has a habit of blurting out the truth Democrats try to hide. The Los Angeles Democrat was never shy about calling for President Donald Trump to be impeached, she openly advocated public harassment of Trump cabinet officials, and now she’s letting the word out about how liberals really feel about the country’s reaction to the coronavirus. In short, she doesn’t want independent businesses to get back on their feet — and she has nothing but scorn for fellow Americans protesting their states’ decisions to keep them closed. ... Waters urged governors like California’s Gavin Newsom to “hold the...

    Los Angeles County residents can expect to remain under some type of “Safer At Home” restrictions well into the summer barring any major change in the fight against the coronavirus, the county’s public health director said Tuesday. Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer made the suggestion during a Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday, saying some form of stay-at-home restrictions will likely remain in place “for the next three months”. “There’s now no way, unless there was a dramatic change in … this virus and the tools that we have at hand to actually fight against this virus, there’s no way that...
