Los Angeles County outdoor dining returns with new COVID-19 rules
"Okay, so you'll have to correct me if I'm wrong when I described this, But there was a skit I want to say in the nineties when Alec Baldwin used to guest host all the time. And the skit Woz. He was operating a dirty cake shop. And people would go in and they would try to buy all these various kinds of dirty cakes, and he would suggest a cake with a woman sitting on a toilet. And then the customer would be disgusted and they would leave and then the next one would come in and the sales pitch would be exactly the same. He would lead him in that direction. And every customer that came into the cake shop. Got that same pitch. Do you remember that's get Try to remember that one. I gotta look that one up. Yeah, that's worth checking out on YouTube. That character in that skit kind of reminds me of the L A times is wrong, Lynn because every question that he asked, is, Do you feel vindicated for setting all the restaurants down? He asked it to Barbara. For rare, He asked it to the mayor. In fact, let's listen. Let's listen to him. Ask that question to Barbara Ferrer. Our next question comes from the line of Ron Lynn. Ron, your line is open. Please go ahead. Hi doctors and supervisor Thanks so much for talking with us today really appreciate it. We have questions for you today. Dr Pereira and supervisor on whether you're vindicated in the public health strategy Project room key and when teachers will get vaccines, first doctor further, and Supervisor L. A county received criticism and lawsuits from some restaurant owners on the outdoor dining ban. County data shows that virus transmission rates started dropping around the same time as the outdoor dining ban and the safe ride home order were issued, which occurred a week ahead of the ST Stay at home order. Does the current good news vindicate your efforts to ban outdoor dining and imposing early, safer at home order? Okay. Now, let's get a completely different question. For l. A mayor Eric Garcetti. I'm deeply feel vindicated that you backed the public Health department here because you know, there's a lot of public criticism. You know about this, but In the end, the public health Department was right. That really bad circles coming on. I just want to know what you thought about that. Thank you. You should really work in a dirty cake shop. Joining us to talk about this and much, much more. Is Fox 11th Film Illusion. Bill Welcome. Hey, John. Thanks for having me, man. That's quite a Quite a variety of questions there. Yeah. You know what? Um, I heard the same thing I was listening in on the DPH pressure the other day. When I heard that question asked in my my job kind of hit the floor. I understand. Ron later explained that he was talking about That our number that health officials like to talk about you know how many people get infected by one single person, he says. That number got lower, but I mean, look at any chart after the outdoor dining band went into effect, our numbers shot up like a missile straight up right afterwards. And if you were we remember at the time supervisors Catherine Parker and Janice Hahn They voted against it. They were concerned that hey, if we shut down outdoor dining, where essentially going to be forcing people indoors, going into the fall going into the colder weather? We're worried people are going to congregate indoors more. And you know, people can debate the outdoor dining ban all they want, but the fact is In the months after it. We went into our worst surge ever, and we're still not out of it. Um, so I don't understand why it would be asked of health officials that they feel vindicated for that. Um, it was just bizarre from my perspective. Well in L. A doesn't operate in a vacuum. We have other cities and other states that air doing similar things and one of the reasons that the city of Chicago decided to reopen their bars and restaurants. I believe for not just outdoor, but indoor dining as well. Was because they realize that by shutting all of them down what they did was, they pushed everyone into crowded little apartments or Grandma's kitchen for Christmas or whatever, and that caused their numbers to explode. The same thing happened in Los Angeles. Yeah. And now they're taking another page out of the exact same playbook. They today they're letting outdoor dining reopen with the caveat that TVs have to be turned off s. Oh, So now the idea is, obviously they don't want people gathering at sports bars and restaurants to watch the Super Bowl next weekend, right? So what they haven't learned. What are people going to do now? Okay, so they don't want him watching it outside. They want to take the outdoor option away. What are people gonna do? Instead? They're gonna watch it indoors. They're going to go to private parties at home. They're gonna watch it. It have people over to watch the game. I would think health officials would want people outside in the fresh air at lower capacity. Rather than crammed inside of private homes. Um, but, hey, I'm not a health expert, but it just seems it just seems logical. So, yeah, they're reopening the outdoor dining today, but TV is has to be gone or turned off.

"Even more progress in the coming not weeks, but the coming days as well. So this is quintessential warden right here. He's asked a very simple, very direct question. And the answer is such a word salad. You have no idea what you just heard. And yes, for a politician to not make sense. That is that is par for the course, especially here in California, where so many of them are bad at their job, But when you're in the middle of a crisis, clarity is key. Your appointees have to know where you stand. The counties have to know where you stand. The medical providers have to know where you stand and the people who want to get the vaccine have to know where you stand and what they're supposed to do, and nobody knows it. And every time he's asked to provide clarity He muddies the waters more his inability to do his job. The same is as the fake doctor Barbara Ferrer is costing people their lives. We need someone better in that position.

And on top of that about 15,000. Angelenos are testing positive every day for the virus, Michaels says. The only way to stop it is to vaccinate the vaccine is not going to do anybody any good if it's sitting in the freezer, so it needs to get into the people. Local health officials are under pressure to open up vaccines to people 65 over which was okay this week by Governor Gavin Newsom. But l a county size means they still aren't through health workers, says County public health Director Barbara Ferrer.

California reverses course from reopening amid virus surge
"A county public health director Barbara Ferrer, speaking to ABC, seven about restaurants, not complying with public health guidelines last weekend. Well. Now restaurants have been shut down again for inside dining.

Around 1000 LA Restaurants Fail Coronavirus Safety Rules Compliance Test
"Across the country, restaurants are closing again. The Washington Post reported today on closures in Phoenix Myrtle, beach. Houston Orlando all states that were starting to reopen only to see new cases of the virus crop that is exactly what local public health officials are trying to avoid officials like La County Public Health Director Dr Barbara Ferrer. We've only got two things right now. We need to distance. And we need to wear face coverings. Rare recently sent staffers to check in with over two thousand restaurants in Los Angeles and her staff found that half of those restaurants were in violation of rules and safety standards, mostly rules about face coverings and social distancing I. The requirement that all of the wait. Staff needs to be wearing face shields. We saw very few in the restaurants where people weren't in compliance. We also saw some places. Table's right next to each other, which absolutely cannot happen and some places We actually had manager say we. They were recommendations. We thought we could do what we wanted. The, first time for airs team gives the restaurant warning and a chance to get better informed about the requirements. A second and third inspection, the restaurant could be issued a citation or be forced to shut down completely the truth is this was our second weekend going out and the first weekend? The results were much worse, so we truly. It was actually an improvement. Our Protocols are actually directive. They're not recommendations here in La County and the restaurants must comply, so there was a lot that. That restaurants had to do to get ready so I. WanNa Start by acknowledging that you know having half of them. Be in full compliance is really the good news. Let me ask you. You know balancing safety with the reopening of the economy that that is just one part of a job that has gotten a lot bigger for you this year, but I want to ask. How are you doing personally and I'm asking is because public health officials elsewhere in the country, even in neighboring Orange County. They have stepped down after receiving death threats. First of all has that happened to you? You know I don't want it to be a focus on sort of what's happening to me. I think so many of us have received death threats. You know people unfortunately, a across the country are angry, and they in some ways. They have a right to be angry. This virus up ended thousands and thousands and thousands of people's lives It would be really important to remember that public health officials did not create. Create this virus that we're also you know. Part of what we hope is going to be a good solutions to the challenges that we're facing. We come into work every single day prepared to do our very best prepared to work with everyone with all of our partners to try to continue to contain others pandemic, and to try to continue to minimize the loss of life.

"It comes to TV production Barbara Ferrer with her daily hunger games death toll says we've got another thirty four deaths due to the corona virus but not to not Orlando airport level fifty two percent of the population I don't know it was not fifty two percent of the popular the governor's side of five hundred it was to math can be you know misinformation is very dangerous very dangerous in the worst part is that it doesn't take a whole lot of of detective work to find out that that number was completely erroneous but people on Twitter telling everyone to avoid Orlando currently it's like people from Tallahassee I guess well Fulton County D. A. Paul Howard junior from from Atlanta made the announcement that felony murder will be charged against the officer who shot and killed Rashard Brooks that Wendy's parking lot in Atlanta last Friday felony murder in Georgia they don't do first degree second degree no they don't do that they do felony murder it would be a death that occurs during the commission of an inherently dangerous felony now is interesting because and California are felony murder rule does not include the fountain the list of felonies that it applies to you on that list assault is not one of them yeah the the felony that they're gonna try to use is aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the actual shooting of Rashard Brooks and then because he died call this a a felony murder the D. A. Paul Howard junior did say that there were a couple of factors that went into this charge and one of them was the idea that for so ever many minutes forty minutes twenty minutes whatever it was that Richard Brooks was just calm collided at one point I even jovial with the officers because remember he he fell asleep in a Wendy's drive thru he was hammered in point one oh wait we have with the blue on them which isn't hammered no but it's a point oh eight is your limit to above the limit bit would would get him a D. Y. likely there would be a chance that I suppose they just say Hey park your car call friends don't dwell he did tell them that he was within walking distance the distance of his home that he could just walk home but the thing is none of none of that I know what the DA's doing in terms of explaining that this was a calm thing made tents by the officers but none of that plays into the moment of the shooting and in those three or four or ten seconds before the shooting because as they went to handcuff for chard Brooks that's when he started to fight back that's when the wrestling happened that's when he grabs one of the tasers and then runs away the officers are chasing after him but as Richard Brooks turns around and tries to shoot the taser it one of them that's when the shots were fired that eventually put him down this officer could get life without parole the this officer could get death yeah but the question is is the DA gonna be able to prove the underlying felony of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon I'm because there are at least three aggravated assault counts and will it matter I mean it's it's it's very rare that officers are charged with a crime as very human more rare that it's murder in the line of duty and even more rare do juries convict them but is that changing well because of the big change that we have seen over just in the past few weeks I remember that the other specific and ends earth changing seeing in this case is that that second officer is going to testify against Garrett Ralph in this this was the day that is that is his aggravated assault charge for after the fact after he was shot yes so that's why he is not being charged with murder because he wasn't in the commission of a felony when he was shot and killed it we're after the fact yeah so that second officer still faces three charges including aggravated assault but he will be testifying against the guy who did the shooting we have had something quite remarkable happened in this case and it involves the testimony of the other officer David Brosnan because officer browse than has now become a state's witness he has decided to testify on behalf of the state in this case are what he has said to us that is within a matter of days he plans to make a statement regarding the culpability of officer Ralph but he indicated that he is not psychologically willing to give that statement today officer browse them hi ever has admitted there he was in fact standing on Mr Brooks's body immediately after the shooting the G. A. also pointed to the lack of medical care that was given to Richard Brooks after he was shot and he said based on the video evidence they have not just the surveillance video from the Wendy's but also witness video that was you know people people were in line basically for the drive through when we're sitting right there when all of this happened that for two plus minutes the officers didn't do anything to give any sort of first aid care to a guy that had just been shot until one of the officers starts on rolling I guess it was an ace bandage of some kind to to try to apply I don't know pressure to the gunshot wounds and it had been it was five minutes after the shooting before the first ambulance showed up so this is yeah I mean I've already seen people say that this is this is over charging that that felony murder is not gonna stick in this case because the you can't approve the aggravated assault you can't prove the underlying felony of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon so coming up next we will find out if we will run out of shows to watch I don't think that's gonna happen we can always go back and watch chips although the people probably take that off there wouldn't that also a story out of Florida we've said Doug before many times on this program there's there's something for everyone out there are you can find all sorts of like minded people things to buy and sell on the internet Florida be a good place to start or is it black start there yourself they got snails the size of basketballs there did you know.

"Sports desk if you pictured in your mind what it looked like if someone stuck a fork in an electrical outlet do you think it would look like Barbara Ferrer she's on TV right now you know I've been trying real hard to stay away from that and sometimes I just can't resist I think the last time it is that you see in the sun well if she's telling everyone else you can't leave your house I guess she's following at least those rules well she's the only one because whenever I'm on the road traffic seems to be back to normal people are out and about people are doing things the weather's great I was golfing this morning the golf course was filled with people who are out there you're required to wear a mask so everyone had a mask around their ears down below there chan just to comply with the rule but no one was using it the way that they were supposed to go yeah it's like at the casino you end to the other day as long as it's the definition of a mask as flimsy or is not really on you it is you're complying and you're fine and we get to play Black Jack and we get to play golf so if that's what we have to do that's what we have to deal not that I like it joining us right now to talk about this and much much more trauma surgeon mass casualty expert former chief medical officer at Walgreens you can follow on Twitter at Dr Kelly victory Dr Kelly victory good afternoon he how are you guys I'm good I got to play blackjack I got to play golf this week I'm happy it soundly I'm having a wonderful Friday as well I was so excited to see the job numbers that you talked about earlier and I wish I could be a fly on the wall to hear how some of the Democrats are responding you know nothing takes up a liberal more than a useful crisis coming to a premature end so I'm sure that they are very upset that the corona virus thing seems to be coming to a conclusion or at least not being you know overwhelming the news every single day the market's doing great so that's all fantastic and we we've survived another week of riots and rona so that's a good thing well I'll tell you what the final nail in the coffin for the pandemic was twelve hundred of the country's most renowned public health quote experts have signed a letter calling outdoor mass gatherings quote vital to the national public health and to the threatened health specifically of black people in quote well good for them okay I've signed up here a number of other letters similar to that that have gone to add to the president with regard to mask wearing the closures of churches and schools really imploring him to get the country back up and going and I'll tell you that it's all good news I think that would be interesting to me is what happens when the average American kind of puts the you know he never wanted wanted says while we were duped this was really not necessary and the amount of anger I suspect people gonna have really is it's been underestimated I think that people are going to eventually figure it out you're always going to have a handful who just say oh thank god we did it frankly I'd be happy to wear a mask and stay indoors for another six months it would quote just save one life but I think the average American is really starting to get it now that this was not necessary no party people have needlessly Stoppard the economy took an absolutely unnecessary trouncing during all of that and I think people are gonna be ticked off when they really figure it out well if you're a public health expert how can you with a straight face say that you were going to kill yourself and all humanity if you go to a movie or a baseball game or get your hair cut but if you go out and protest for a cause that they believe in it's perfectly fine well you can precisely and and people I think are starting to put that together and see the inequity of right it it affected it was it's been so it's a it's your job to the way it's been applied people pointed out you know some weeks or months ago that you know why is it safe to go to the home depot but not safe to go to church wise it's safe to go you know to this plate to the liquor store or the marijuana dispensary but you know not to my hair salon two people have seen that but then when you took this giant leap into the riot these and and saw people wall to wall absolutely with wanton disregard for any of the mandate or any of the guidelines social distancing mapped all of that stuff he had no outcry from public health people about that you know gosh one blossom even heard from fellow G. he's been nowhere to be seen you'd think they'd be sent you know sounding off the alarm saying oh my gosh please and he **** up yes because we're so concerned about you getting the rona instead there has been you know nary a peep about that and and I agree with you if you have any any integrity as a public health official you have to be willing to stand up and say okay this was an error this was a a gross error and we won't ever let it happen again let's go ahead and listen to the mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti because I I really want to pick your brain on this you have a background in mass casualties you have a background in public health and I think there's a strong connection to what Eric Garcetti said today and what public health of what that means a potentially to the future public health in Los Angeles let's go ahead

V. insanity that is the world of Dr Barbara Ferrer who wants to keep everything shut down indefinitely she's the one that came out and said end of July may be and they had to walk that back Jennifer van Laar has been talking off the record to several people that I've worked a long time in the LA department of public health barber for is only been there a couple of years and she talk to them into writing an open letter and I'm going to read it to you now this is an open letter from public health officials unlock the Los Angeles pandemic and they are failing to protect the most vulnerable while the firestorm of the pandemic in Los Angeles county continues in our nursing homes and accounts for at least half of all Kobe deaths in the county we need to step back and ask who led us into this mess and while I have the most vulnerable populations been needlessly exposed to this virus most heads will turn towards Barbara for rare a PhD in social welfare the current director of the department of public health an issue of ports to staff touted jurist having come from the Kellogg foundation and before that the Boston health department as the commissioner there but in truth none of her experience qualified her for the job here in Los Angeles where over the years we have faced and effectively manage serious communicable disease health crisis seats as Mrs for rare stepped in the role of director she replaced a career employee in the department Cynthia Harding who has had a very strong epidemiology background and who had actually done the job as acting director for over two years with doctor Jeffrey guns and Hauser as acting health officer for the same time period following the retirement of Dr Jonathan fielding during this Harding's tenure she consistently deferred to the health officers the face and lead medical decision maker for communicable disease outbreaks in our communities utilizing some of the county's top epidemiology and infectious disease physicians as well as experienced field public health nurses Dr fielding's legacy of open an active participation of experienced staff and managers during public health threats while also intervening to alleviate health disparities in disadvantaged and high risk populations is no longer the case in the department of public health under the current leadership communicable disease is no longer a departmental priority once miss Ferrer was appointed as director one of our first motives was to notify all department program directors that she was the only voice and contact with the board offices this broke down a chain of communication in place for many years that allowed local public health managers to assist constituents that compacted that contacted their local board offices about a variety of health issues and act quickly on public health threats ms for rare knows that they're not calling your doctor for Erica she's not a doctor is the only control point for board questions and communication in the department even now many managers complain that they don't know what's going on and are not being well utilized for the pandemic our only communication with them our occasional chips and salsa sessions or virtual town halls these questions need further investigation once the pandemic is quiet again this is an open letter for people that work at the department of public health who have had it up to here with the knot of Dr Barbara Ferrer here are the questions wanted barber for rare leave the Boston public health department and why did you leave the Kellogg foundation where she indicated she was sidelined for months prior to getting the job in LA I have to think some of that has to do with the five hundred thousand dollar paycheck she gets for working in Los Angeles question number two why were lead departmental managers stripped of direct reporting employees while she hired friends from Boston who knew little of LA annex complex of communities number three why during the meningitis outbreak of twenty seventeen twenty eighteen did Barbara Ferrer refused to vaccinate paramedics fire and police until they pay you least union called for her out on it at a public board meeting number four why the series of highly experienced managers been transferred mysteriously loaned out of the department of public health the other departments or retired and number five did Barbara Ferrer mandate a large budget cuts to the communicable disease control unit in the months just prior to a pandemic remember Dr Barbara Ferrer does not come from a background of disease or epidemiology her platform for public health in Los Angeles is racial equity which I don't really see how it's a public health issue it's an issue but it's not we're nestled fairly related to public health if you ever watch these bloviating LA county press conferences the first thing Barbara Ferrer wants you to know after she tells you how many people they tested how many people got it and how many people died is the break down by race that's not the most important question at least in my opinion back to this open letter from employees of the department of public health that have had enough of Dr Barbara Ferrer but here the most important questions now as we are in the middle of this mess here in LA here's some more questions why did Barbara Ferrer ignored early warnings for infectious disease physicians when that apartment and broader public health community said Hey there's a problem number two and we've asked this question quite a lot here in KBC what was the LA marathon allowed to take place number three why is it county health officer Muntu Davis and M. D. in charge of the public health response number four why is Barbara Ferrer the incident commander for the pandemic as well as the chief spokesperson number five why weren't the nursing homes in early point of control for the spread of sars Kobe too particularly after seeing the reports of what happened in Washington state in that nursing home number six why we're nursing home employees allowed to work at multiple nursing home facilities at the same time even before any testing was available and continue to even do so now number seven why did the department of public health director nursing home operators to accept covert nineteen patients rather than utilize the reactivated Saint Vincent hospital I think that's the hospital that they re open that they could barely get anybody to go to but now we put them back in the nursing homes why were nursing home staff were a symptomatic but tested positive allowed to remain at work why did apartment a public health get the rare I'm the mayor of recommendation to house homeless in city rec centers against the CDC recommendations why didn't miss Ferrer request National Guard medical corps from the governor to assist in disease control in these nursing homes which again if you look at the numbers is more than fifty percent of the deaths in LA county came from nursing homes and Catherine Barker didn't take her long to throw Dr Barbara Ferrer for miscalculating where we should've been focusing our response a couple more questions that the employees of the department of public health have here why did she hire an outside firm to process the data she uses rather than rely on the internal epidemiology staff at the department of public health why do we have sufficient data on nursing home deaths including at the state level what is the county extended contract doing outside M. D. to manage testing rather than rely on the staff that they have with successful community organizing for mass vaccination outreach efforts we have a public health department leader that expects a relatively small cadre of physicians and public health staff to control over four hundred nursing home outbreaks involving thousands of nursing home patients and outbreaks in shelters nearly sixty thousand homeless in our county current staff engaged in these outbreaks are exhausted and carry on valiantly without the consent of department level leadership instead relying on what they understand is good public health practice working long hours and making headway in this effort they deserve our support and thanks anyone with a depth of public health experience in dealing with outbreaks will tell you the controlling hot spots such as nursing homes would have been first on the list of community controls to stop the spread of cove in nineteen instead of making such pronouncements as quote you can walk on the wet sand but not on the dry sand at the beach deeply concerned local public health professionals there are people working in LA county that know what they're doing barber.
