Dine-In Restaurants, Malls, Schools Can Reopen In Napa County

NAPA COUNTY, CA — Not unlike counties across California, businesses such as dine-in restaurants and retail stores, including shopping malls and swap meets, have been shuttered since mid-March in Napa County. Effectively immediately, however, Napa County is the first in the Bay Area where such businesses are allowed to reopen provided they make certain adaptations, the county announced Thursday evening.

“The State of California has approved Napa County’s self-attestation that the County meets the State’s Public Health Officer’s readiness criteria, a requirement for any county applying to gradually open additional businesses and services under the State’s ‘Expanded Stage 2’ of its four-stage reopening process,” Napa County Spokeswoman Elizabeth Scott said.

“This State approval allows Napa County’s businesses and services listed in Expanded Stage 2 to open, within industry guidelines, immediately,” Scott said.

The state of California is further permitting the county to reopen schools effective June 1.

South Korea slowly goes back to normal as schools reopen, sports games begin

South Korea has officially begun transition into ‘distancing in daily life’ measures after 45 days of implementing strict ‘social distancing’ but fears remain whether new rules are enough to keep people safe.

The country, once reaching 813 confirmed COVID-19 patients in a day on Feb. 28, has flattened the curve to less than 10 confirmed patients over the last four consecutive days.

“The daily life we enjoy today is a result of our citizens abiding by social distancing rules and maintaining personal hygiene,” Deputy Director Kwon Jun-wook of Korean CDC said in a briefing Thursday. “We need to keep this up and control a sporadic outbreak [of COVID-19].”

Petitions ask Gov. Newsom to block 5G expansion in California schools, cities. Here’s why

Petitions asking Gov. Gavin Newsom to block the roll out of 5G in California neighborhoods have popped up on social media in recent weeks, raising concern that the super-fast fifth generation of mobile broadband will cause adverse health effects like cancer and DNA damage.

One Change.org petition asking Newsom to stop the installation of 5G in schools had more than 3,700 signatures as of Sunday.

“I believe that our local government, representatives and Gov. Newsom have a very serious responsibility to make decisions with the health and well being of the citizens of California always in mind,” said campaign organizer Corissa Furr. “And the fact that he is allowing the installation of 5G in all of our schools right now, with zero evidence that this technology is safe, is a disservice to all of us.”

5G is the next generation of wireless technologies that the communications industry believes will power

Women’s Sport Social Embed

When Telegraph Women’s Sport launched its  “Girls, Inspired” campaign a year ago, the aim was to help close the gender gap in sport in schools.

It revealed worrying reasons why girls feel disengaged with sport from a young age and told the stories of girls launching their own school initiatives to increase participation, and it also influenced government policy.

What our campaign did not bank on was that, 12 months on, girls would all be confined to their homes and gardens amid a pandemic. 

Since schools were closed and the country essentially went into lockdown, the goalposts for this challenge of getting girls active – and even keeping boys active – have moved.

There are people stepping up to the challenge, though. Personal trainer Joe Wicks is one. Along with nearly 500,000 others, I am in my living room watching Wicks appear on my screen
