first_img Make a comment STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week For the first time in nearly two months local health officials reported Coronavirus deaths on back-to-back days.In total, 1,083 people have been infected with the virus in Pasadena and 86 people have died.The increase in numbers came as county officials announced that visitation can resume at nursing facilities with some restrictions.Family and friends can visit their loved ones at facilities that have not had any new COVID-19 infections for 28 days.“It’s highly unlikely that you’ll see relaxing across the board at all of the (skilled nursing facilities) given the fact that they do need to be 28 days out with no new cases,” said County Health Director Barbara Ferrer. “But visitors with fever or COVID-19 symptoms will not be permitted to enter into a facility. Visitors are going to need to practice distancing of at least six feet. Everyone will need to wear their face mask at all times and signs will be posted with additional rules at each of the facilities and shared with visitors.”The announcement came the same day that county health officials reported a record-high single-day number of coronavirus cases.On Wednesday 2,129 new cases and 34 deaths were reported for Los Angeles county.According to Ferrer those social distancing and face mask requirements are also important for all residents to remember as they move about in public and visit reopened businesses.Ferrer also indicated there could be movement this week allowing nail salons to reopen.“We are working very closely with the board (of supervisors) to assess the options on the reopening. We hope that we’ll be able to share more information … as early as tomorrow about where we continue and how we continue on our recovery journey.“… There is an obligation on every business that’s open at this point to really adhere to the guidance and the protocols and directives that are out there about how to make sure that your facility offers as much safety as possible to both your workers, to your customers and to residents.”Ferrer noted Monday that county inspectors had visited 2,000 restaurants over the weekend, and half of them were out of compliance with operating protocols.
