Long Beach Mayor thanked health care workers and the public for the support in his Thursday City status

Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia released this Thursday about the update on the city's status on Coronavirus.

He thanked the public health leaders for their hard work and expertise. He also thanked the citizens for their cooperation and support and helped provided to complete economic development survey for Long Beach. Long beach started transitioning to Stage 2 of reopening, but there is still some time for it to start.

He also said:" We have committed to making decisions based on the data and the science; we have even heard loud and clear from workers, residents and business owners in the Long Beach community: Everyone wants the opportunity to spend time outdoors. We saw that reflected in the responses we received from the economic development survey, which was completed by more than 15,000 people in our city. Workers, residents, and business owners alike all chose the same top three categories of activities they would like to see reopened: outdoor recreation, beaches, and parks — and we have taken this to heart."


From this Friday i.e., May 8, many shops, including some recreational shops such as florists, toy stores, bookstores, clothing stores, music stores, sporting good stores, can provide curbside pickup to the customers in Long Beach.

Dine-in services permitted in Orange County; LA County does not meet up relaxation approval standards


The reopening of Phase 2 businesses also includes dine-in services in restaurants and reopening of shopping centres as Gov. Gavin Newsom approved Orange County's request, amid the pandemic. Allowed business activities include:

  • Retail
  • Manufacture
  • Restaurants (in-person dining)
  • Outdoor museums
  • Offices
  • Limited personal services (tanning salons, car washes, gardening service, pet groomers)

Lisa Bartlett, the County Supervisor, was pleased that the Orange County was able to meet the state requirements the request was granted before Memorial Day weekend. After the announcement of the governor's decision, the county's health officer issued a new order which requires everyone to wear masks and mandates quarantine for those who have or have been exposed to COVID-19.

OC Health Care Agency authorities reported 216 new cases and 12 additions deaths which raised the county's total affected cases to 5,157 and 130 deaths; 42 deaths were reported in 4 days alone.

On the other hand, Los Angeles County accounts for half of the state's COVID-19 cases and has not met the requirements to reopen businesses. The County officials do not expect to follow the relaxed state standards until 4th July. Recently the death and hospitalization trends have improved, but the Whitehouse coronavirus response coordinator told that the spread of COVID-19 is a concern in LA.

Dr. Deborah Birx approached the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help investigate the source of new cases to help forestall outbreaks in future.

Los Angeles is among the few California's 58 counties that either have not adequately contained the infection to revive more activities and business or, on account of a few San Francisco Bay Area counties, have decided to move all the more gradually.

Local bicycle delivery services roll into high gear due to COVID-19 pandemic


As most people are at home and choose delivery options on food and everything else, messenger at Maritime Bicycle Courier is working at the front line of the coronavirus pandemic in Long Beach.


Tagquiped and Bud Abilles are both former competitive cyclists, and they launched a local delivery service in 2014, but slowly corporate delivery services drove away their business.


Even after facing hard competition, their business kept on rolling—Maritime Bicycle Courier partners with nearly 30 restaurants and businesses across the city.

"It's very important to us as a Long Beach-based business that we keep our money in Long Beach," said Ryan Hughes, co-owner of The 4th Horseman.


The 4th Horseman is the exclusive partner for Maritime Bicycle Courier for deliveries. Hughes said that during the COVID-19 pandemic, around 70% of orders placed at The 4th Horseman consist of deliveries.


Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the local delivery services had increased its workforce by 33%.

I'm grateful," Tagquiped said. "It's a weird blessing that the community basically has brought us back up and shown us support."

5 months pregnant woman rushed to help three drowning children

Alyssa DeWitt, who is five months pregnant, was relaxing on the beach with her children. She saw someone waving their hands in the water.


The woman forced her children out of the water and ran to the pier. Children who were swimming in the lake were beaten against the wall of the pier. They could barely keep their heads above the water and literally drowned before my eyes. There was no one on the beach to whom I could turn for help, so I had to bend them into the water and rescue them.

City Council considers an initiative to allow more public space for local business to survive and thrive


Robert Garcia, Long Beach Mayor, updates on the city’s status amidst COVID-19 outbreak.

Weather is warm, and people want normal activities to resume. Although it is not impossible to pace up with everyday activities without the orders of the State of California health, authorities are trying to serve to restart community and economy.

Local businesses serve as the backbone of the state’s economy; they are facing difficulties, and they require support. The necessities of the residents and business owners are considered, but there is an issue of space.

The City Council, along with Councilmembers Suzie Price, Roberto Uranga, Jeannine Pearce and Al Austin, will consider the initiative Garcia had put forward- open streets initiative.

This initiative refers to the provision of more public spaces to carry out outdoor activities, transit access and economic activity; besides maintaining a safe distance. This space provision creates more opportunity for people to be outdoors and help support the local business without overcrowding.

Maintaining physical distance will pose a challenge for various businesses, and with more availability of space, the business can thrive. Although the pickup and delivery system is on, it has brought insufficient revenue in case of many economic activities; some restaurants are not set-up for this operation.

The writer apologized to a man who spent 16 years in prison for her rape

Alice Seabold apologized for the illegal conviction of a man who was found not guilty of raping her in 1981.


In her first book, Lucky, Seabord described being raped. Anthony Broadwater was convicted of the crime. He spent 16 years in prison and was on the sex offender registry for more than 20 years.


Seabold also wrote the novel The Lovely Bones, which Peter Jackson turned into an Oscar-nominated film.


"I am most sorry that the life you could have been unjustly stolen from you, and I know that no apology can change what has happened to you," Seabold said in a statement.

A statement released by Broadwater's lawyers said he was "relieved that she apologized."

Seabold's first autobiographical novel sold more than a million copies, which marked the beginning of her writing career.

In it, she described in detail how an 18-year-old student at Syracuse University in New York was raped.
