This motion, which will be heard before the Board of Supervisors at its next meeting on May 26, also supports efforts for interested cities or regions within the County to apply for their own partial variance based on the State’s readiness criteria. These are critical and necessary steps for the County to pursue toward full reopening.In addition, Supervisor Kathryn Barger sent a letter to Governor Gavin Newsom today urging his support to enable Los Angeles County to advance in Stage 2 and transition to Stage 3 of California’s COVID-19 pandemic roadmap. This would allow Los Angeles County to reopen the majority of businesses including dine-in restaurants, in-store retail, indoor malls and shopping centers, movie theaters, and personal care facilities (e.g., hair and nail salons, and gyms). It would also help reopen schools and child-care facilities, and in-person religious services.“I am fully committed to the phased reopening of Los Angeles County in light of the substantive measures that we have taken to successfully slow the spread of COVID-19,” said Supervisor Barger. “This includes ensuring for adequate hospital capacity; increasing the access and availability of testing and contact tracing; and implementing protections for vulnerable populations. These efforts, coupled with our public health data that indicates a lower level of risk in reopening than previously thought, supports expediency in moving our region through Stage 2 and into Stage 3.”These efforts by Supervisor Barger follow recent presentations made by the Los Angeles County Economic Resiliency Task Force that reiterated the significant financial impacts of the current COVID-19 shutdowns and the sobering decline the region could face resulting from prolonged closures. The Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation has confirmed more than 1 million unemployment claims filed in L.A. County to date, and more than 75% of the projected job losses from individuals earning less than $50,000 per year, devastating low-income wage earners the most.The Board motion seeks to obtain a variance from the State public health order for individual cities and regions within the County who have experienced lower levels of COVID-19, allowing these localities to advance further in Stage 2 of the state’s Roadmap to Recovery. While the State has not allowed dining in restaurants and in-store shopping statewide, they have allowed counties that reach certain levels of testing to advance more quickly than the remainder of the State. Many cities within the County, who have seen lower rates of infection, have called for exemptions to state regulations.A copy of the Board motion can be found here.A copy of the letter Supervisor Barger sent to Governor Newsom can be found here. 18 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Your email address will not be published.

DENVER >> Andre Ethier did something so perfectly common in his first at-bat on Monday that it was easy to lose perspective of the moment.A left-handed hitter, Ethier hit a home run off Colorado Rockies starter Kyle Kendrick, a right-handed pitcher. The ball disappeared into the forest at Coors Field — an actual collection of trees that’s swallowed home runs to right-center by Carlos Gonzalez and Larry Walker and Todd Helton dozens of times over the years. Ethier’s swing was just as classic as any of the southpaw sluggers who have called this park home.The home run was Ethier’s seventh of the year, in the Dodgers’ 49th game. It put the 33-year-old outfielder on a pace to hit 23 home runs, a benchmark he hasn’t achieved in five years.Throw in the fact that Ethier hasn’t committed an error since he took over in right field for Yasiel Puig on April 25, and it makes perfect sense that Ethier will continue to play every day once Puig returns from the disabled list. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that Ethier will shift to left field upon Puig’s return. Puig will go back to right field when he completes a minor-league rehab assignment, which Mattingly expects will begin later this week.The manager doesn’t usually look that far ahead. He wouldn’t even divulge his starting pitcher for Game 1 of Tuesday’s doubleheader before Monday’s game. But he’s ready to end the Scott Van Slyke/Alex Guerrero/Kiké Hernandez platoon in left field necessitated by an oblique injury to Carl Crawford. “I think (because of) overexposure over time you start to see teams get a chance to get better looks at you,” Mattingly said. “We talked about Scott, trying to match him up with the right right-hander, things like that. We have to be happy with the job our guys have done. We’ve had multiple things we’ve had to try to overcome, and our guys have hung in pretty good for us.”Crawford was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday. That means he won’t return before June 27.In the meantime, Ethier is keeping right field warm for Puig. Hernandez kept left field warm for Ethier on Monday because Mattingly said he wanted to put “our best defender out there” with eight right-handed hitters in the Rockies’ lineup. Wherever he is, Ethier will be assured of the very thing he’s been asking for all along: A place in the Dodgers’ everyday lineup.Stults remains in organizationLeft-handed pitcher Eric Stults, whom the Dodgers acquired in the recent trade that sent Juan Uribe to the Atlanta Braves, will report to Double-A Tulsa. Stults had been designated for assignment immediately after the trade became official. By accepting the outright assignment, Stults returns to the club that drafted him in 2002 and employed him at the major league level from 2006-09. In nine games (eight starts) for the Braves this season, Stults went 1-5 with a 5.85 earned-run average. The Dodgers were ultimately able to keep all four players they acquired for Uribe and pitcher Chris Withrow in the organization. Pitcher Ian Thomas is in Triple-A, pitcher Juan Jaime is at extended spring training and infielder Alberto Callaspo is on the 25-man roster.Also …Pitcher David Huff was selected to the Dodgers’ 40-man roster from Triple-A, taking the place of Crawford. Huff takes the 25-man roster spot of pitcher Matt West, who was optioned back to Triple-A Oklahoma City. West was recalled prior to Sunday’s game in St. Louis but did not pitch. … Left-hander Paco Rodriguez was scheduled to have his strained left elbow examined in Los Angeles by team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache. An update on Rodriguez’s prognosis was not available by game time. … Ethier’s 649th career RBI eclipsed Matt Kemp for fifth place on the all-time Los Angeles Dodgers RBI leaders list.
