Pasadena Health Officials Confirm Two More Local Deaths

first_imgCity officials reported two more deaths of the Coronavirus and 19 new cases on Wednesday.The deaths and cases came from within the city’s long term health care facilities.The announcement came about 24 hours before the City Council planned to meet to discuss allowing some low-risk businesses to open, including bookstores, clothing stores and music stores.Gov. Gavin Newsom plans to release state guidelines on the openings on Thursday.LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger said on Monday that county stores also could reopen on Friday.Pasadena’s plans will most likely be in concert with similar plans made in Long Beach and the city of Los Angeles.In correspondence to the Pasadena City Council, Chamber of Commerce President Paul Little the first step is for Pasadena’s Public Health Department to determine it is safe to do so, even on a limited basis.“Like restaurants, I think most retailers could be able and willing to do curbside pick-up of goods,” Little said. “I expect they would welcome guidelines for safety, cleanliness and protective equipment that might be necessary. That would come from the Public Health Department and should be clearly written and provided to all retailers at no cost.”A member of the Pasadena Health Department told Pasadena Now on Monday that the department would be part of the process.“The virus continues to be present in our community but we understand the need to evaluate restrictions,” said Manuel Carmona. “In the days to come, the Health Department will help the city assess activities for their level of risk and begin considering easing restrictions for the lowest risk activities. The Health Department will be on the ready, closely monitoring data in the event we start to see cases rise again.”Monday’s meeting will take place after the Economic Development Technology Committee meets. The EDTECH will be the first one since February. Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Men’s tennis set for battle at UCLA

first_imgAfter a commanding 5-2 win over Stanford in Palo Alto last weekend, the Trojans will head to Westwood Tuesday to face UCLA at the Los Angeles Tennis Center.They will try and secure back-to-back road victories against Pac-12 teams in nonconference matches.Both teams look as strong as expected this season, with UCLA posting a ranking of fourth in the nation, while USC sits at 13th and is likely to rise after the win over Stanford.The Trojans faced some adversity to begin the match after losing the doubles point to go down 1-0 early. They then rattled off five consecutive singles match wins to clinch the match before a loss in a third set tiebreaker for the second loss of the day for USC.Junior Nick Crystal tied the match-up with a straight sets win, and freshman Jake Devine continued his stellar debut  season after finishing a third set win, 6-1. Sophomore Thibault Forget clinched the match with the Trojans’ fourth singles win in another three-setter, and senior Max de Vroome pulled off a big upset over Stanford’s Tom Fawcett, the fourth-ranked player in the country. The Trojans hope to ride this momentum into this rivalry match and a difficult schedule against many top teams across the country.The Bruins provide a challenging matchup with their top three players: junior Mackenzie McDonald, sophomore Martin Redlicki and junior Gage Brymer are all top-50 players in the country. McDonald leads the team with experience as a junior ranked 19th in the nation who has not only succeeded at UCLA but has also won some lower-level professional matches. The Bruins also have senior Karue Sell, their fourth nationally ranked player at 94. The Bruins’ talented group has led them to a 9-2 record on the season, which brings an additional challenge in the rivalry match.The Trojans counter with an array of solid players for the difficult challenge the Bruins will bring. De Vroome is coming off his biggest win of the year in the Stanford match and will be playing one of the top singles slots for the Trojans with a ranking of 65th nationally. Crystal is just behind de Vroome at 67th in the country, adding an early Pac-12 Player of the Week award this season to an already strong resume in his first two seasons at USC. Freshman Logan Smith boasts the Trojans’ top ranking with a mark of 56th nationally and will try to add yet another win to his young career. Rounding out the Trojans singles players are the freshman duo of DeVine and Jack Jaede as well as experienced sophomore Forget.USC brings a young team to the table, but so far this season the inexperience has been far overshadowed by the talent of these players as well as the leadership of the veterans on the team. The Trojans hope to repeat the success they had against the Bruins last season, winning both matches on each team’s home court during the regular season and beating them in the Pac-12 tournament for a three-match sweep.Correction: This post originally appeared with the title “Fourth-ranked men’s tennis set for battle at UCLA.” The men’s tennis team is ranked 13th. The Daily Trojan regrets the error.last_img read more
