The Nooner for Saturday, May 22, 2021, presented by SYASL Partners

REOPENING: In the Times, Luke Money writes on what a reopened California will look like on June 15.

Come June 15, Californians will wake up to a world that looks nothing like the last year-plus — one where businesses can open their doors without COVID-19 constraints on capacity or requirements for physical distancing, and where people who are fully vaccinated no longer need to wear masks in most situations.

California also will align with recommendations from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention when it comes to travel, according to Dr. Mark Ghaly, the state’s Health and Human Services secretary.

“The big message today is we’re at a place with this pandemic where those requirements of the past are no longer needed for the foreseeable future,” he said during a briefing.

Regardless of the updated regulations, the state will not be eliminating COVID awareness. Ghaly emphasized that “we will be watching closely to determine if and when we need other public health protections to come back into place.”

COVID-19, cakedays, and classifieds after the jump...

COVID-19: California reported 32 deaths yesterday for a total of 62,542 since the pandemic began.

-vaccines:

  • vaccine doses administered in California: 35,755,129
  • vaccine doses delivered to California: 44,822,040 
  • Californians fully vaccinated: 16,320,438 (48.1% of 16+)
  • Californians partially vaccinated: 4,571,587 (13.5% of 16+)

CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to Michael Daft, Cassidy Denny, Jessica Duong, Assemblymember Brian Maienschein, and Ed Manning!

Capitol Weekly presents A Conference on Housing Policy

Join us for an informative update on California’s Housing Crisis. For years, the Golden State has had the highest home prices in the US, one of the lowest rates of home-ownership, and the most people living on the streets – now, the COVID-19 pandemic has made the situation even worse. Three panels of experts, insiders and elected officials will discuss the status of the state’s Housing Crisis and the policy solutions being proposed to help solve it.

This event will be hosted on ZOOM from 9AM – 1:45PM, Wednesday, May 26. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. Attend one panel, or the whole day!
