The purpose of this Order is to prohibit public and private events or gatherings of 10 or more people, and require the closure of malls, shopping centers, children’s playgrounds, and non-essential retail businesses in an effort to stem or slow the spread of COVID-19 within the Pasadena community.For all gatherings that are not prohibited, the health officer orders those persons attending an event or gathering and the venues holding the event or gathering implement the following infection control precautions:(1) Practice social distancing within the confined space by requiring attendees to be separated by six (6) feet;(2) Provide access to hand-washing facilities with soap and water or hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol;(3) Post a sign in a conspicuous place at the public entry to the venue instructing members of the public to not attend if they are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness, including fever or cough; and(4) Adhere to communicable disease control recommendations provided by the Pasadena Public Health Department.As a point of clarity, this Order does not prohibit any individual or family from outdoor activities such as hiking, walking, and shopping at essential businesses—including grocery stores and restaurants—so long as all persons practice social distancing to the extent practicable.Because of the rapid spread of COVID-19 and the need to protect everyone, including the most vulnerable members of our community, this Order prohibits all indoor public and private gatherings and all outdoor public and private events within a confined space, where at least 10 people are expected to be in attendance at the same time. This Order applies within the City of Pasadena Public Health Jurisdiction, beginning at 11:59 p.m. on March 19 and continuing through April 19, 2020, subject to the terms and conditions more particularly set forth below.The Pasadena Public Health Department will continue to monitor the rate of COVID-19 disease spread, state and CDC recommendations, and the impact of the required measures, and the health officer may revisit, extend, expand, or otherwise modify this Order as needed to protect the public’s health.“The health and safety of our community remains our top concern,” said City Manager Steve Mermell. “Given the rapid spread of COVID-19, having people stay at home and avoid non-essential activities is the most effective way to prevent more infections. This order is necessary if we’re going to save lives and keep hospitals from being overwhelmed with new cases.”Violation of or failure to comply with this Order is a crime punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both.

March Madness 2019: Ja Morant emotional after Murray State falls out of NCAA Tournament

first_img“I would say I was just hurt — not being able to take the floor with these guys for the rest of the season, for another game, or possibly two, three, four,” Morant said, per ESPN. “But it’s been a great season. I really was just thinking back on what all we have accomplished this year, and I’d say I was more hurt not being able to play with these guys for the remainder of the season.””Ja Morant has a brilliant career ahead of him.”Murray State star gets emotional after tournament run ends against FSU. Morant finished with 28 PTS, 5 REB, 4 AST. #MarchMadness pic.twitter.com/9qRjABJJsA— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) March 24, 2019Morant finished the night with 28 points after averaging 24.4 points and 10.2 assists per game this season. ESPN notes he became the first college player to accomplish that feat since the 1983-84 season when assists were officially recorded. Ja Morant was emotional when his NCAA Tournament run with Murray State came to an end Saturday after his team fell to Florida State. As the final minutes of the 12th-seeded Racers’ 90-62 loss to the No. 4 Seminoles ticked down, Morant could be seen sitting on the bench with a towel over his head while his teammates and coaches comforted him.

He’s just a relentless competitor. He’s tough and he’s a winner. His growth as a leader this year was a big key in the success we were able to have.”Now, Morant will have to face a decision about his basketball future. Projected by many to be a top-three pick in June’s draft, Morant wasn’t willing to reveal whether he will declare for the NBA or finish out his final two years of college eligibility.”That time will come,” Morant said. “My focus is not on that right now. It’s just celebrating this — what a great season we had — with my teammates.”last_img read more
