Coronavirus rules for reopening California gyms coming soon

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday said his administration will release guidelines “in a week or so” for allowing gyms, yoga studios and other fitness facilities to reopen, though stringent safeguards will need to be adopted to protect customers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Newsom cautioned that the state directives will be tailored to the unique characteristics of each business, from large fitness chains to small studios, and will rely heavily on the advice of public health officials in each county.

The governor made the comments during an online roundtable with fitness professionals and business owners Wednesday morning, saying he hopes to allow them to be back in business as soon as possible.

“We also recognize your sector is multifaceted and we don’t want to be naive and just put out something that’s bland and that doesn’t meet your unique criteria and your unique considerations,” Newsom said.

The news comes as Dr.

California gyms reopening: Gov. Gavin Newsom says guidelines for reopening CA gyms, fitness centers coming in ‘week or so’

SAN FRANCISCO — When do gyms reopen in California and what will they look like when they do? Gov. Gavin Newsom held a roundtable discussion on Wednesday to talk about reopening the fitness industry amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The participants shared how they are dealing with the crisis, how they are adapting their workplaces, and what opportunities they see to reinvent their businesses and our state’s economy.

Newsom says he hopes that within a week or so, the state can release guidelines for reopening gyms. But he also points out that the fitness industry is multi-faceted and he doesn’t want to be naive and just put out something bland that doesn’t meet the unique criteria and considerations.

In the meantime, some gyms and instructors have been able to switch to virtual, one-on-one classes to make money. “We’re continuing to work our mission virtually,” one fitness industry member said.

“Men’s and nations’ finest hour consist of those moments when
extraordinary challenge is met by extraordinary response.” 
 
 Neal A. Maxwell

As the days and nights have blended together over the past couple
of weeks during the growing coronavirus threat, there’s one
thought that continues to rise in my mind.

It’s this: How fortunate; how very fortunate we are to have our
dedicated medical experts and health care workers during this
uncertain time.

We don’t yet know how far, how fast, and how hard coronavirus
will hit our nation or our state, but what we do know, right now,
is that there are professionals we can count on when our backs
are against the wall. And those people are working around the
clock to prepare for increased surge capacity. Many are taking
unprecedented measures to expand their ability to care for our
current and anticipated COVID-19 cases, not to mention

The club’s CEO, Tony Ueber, says they’re ready to reopen with modifications.           

“The most important is we’re going to open the clubs for an hour at a time; let people come in and workout, then we’ll close the club for 30 minutes in order to do a deep cleaning.  And then open it back up for another 60-minute segment,” says Ueber.

Ueber says the hour on, 30 minutes off will give cleaning

California dentist offices are reopening. Are they safe?

After nearly two months of shuttered offices or emergency-only work, California and Sacramento dentists are reopening this week to more patients.

That puts dental offices squarely on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic and poses serious questions for patients, dental employees and dentists:

How safe is a dental visit? What precautions are needed? Should some patients wait a few more weeks before going in?

Dental offices involve close contact that produces aerosol particles that can carry the virus. That said, both the state Department of Public Health and the California Dental Association last week signaled to dentists they can ramp up with patient loads, if they follow coronavirus-safety guidelines.

It means dental office visits are going to be notably different now than they were a few months ago. Here is at look at the issues and likely changes:

What are dental offices now allowed to do?

That is up

California doctors’ dubious coronavirus claims condemned by health experts

A widely shared local television video of last week’s news conference, which was posted on YouTube, reached more than 5 million views and was amplified by Elon Musk and Fox News, where Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi appeared on primetime shows two nights in a row.

The video has since been taken down by YouTube for violating the platform’s policy on misinformation, a YouTube spokesperson said.

The doctors, who are not epidemiologists and who own and operate urgent care centers in the Bakersfield area, held the news conference on April 22 to share their conclusions about the results of 5,213 coronavirus tests at their clinics, extrapolating their findings to the California population as a whole.

“Do we need to still shelter in place? Our answer is emphatically no. Do we need businesses to be shut down? Emphatically no. Do we need to test them and get them back … Read More
