The struggle of reopening the economy in California; a conversation with Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia, attorney Harmeet Dhillon, and psychologist Michael Gervais
Episode 146, Jul 18, 2020, 04:29 PM
This week, some four months after California’s stay-at-home order began, the situation continues to take a turn in the wrong direction.
For the first time, California recorded more than 10,000 new cases in a single day, as the total number of confirmed COVID-19 infections in the Golden State ballooned to more than 370,000.
As a result, Governor Newsom followed up his announcement that indoor services would be ending at many restaurants, theaters, salons, and other businesses, with an order on Friday that schools in some 32 of the state’s 58 counties would be online-only to start fall instruction.
To break down the newest orders, their emotional ramifications, and their legality, Elex Michaelson is joined this week on The Issue Is by Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia, attorney Harmeet Dhillon, and psychologist Michael Gervais.
