We know that Joe Biden has announced an all female senior communications team at the White House. We also know that Joe Biden fractured his foot playing with one of his dogs. Mm figured out in a scan yesterday likely require him to wear a boot for several weeks. They said it was think it's too small bones in the middle of his foot. That sounds I feel like the story that it happened when he was playing with his dogs is a cover up. I thought the exact same thing When I saw that this morning like I think he fell or like how to fall or something or something that you know, and they didn't want to make him sound like he's. You can't say broken hip. You can't say those kinds of things right? So when you when you say he's playing with this dog that makes him sing seem young and active. He was out.

A couple times it looks like other cities are going to try and follow Pasadena's lead and start their own health departments. Officials in Lancaster and wittier are exploring the idea of joining with nearby cities to start a regional health department. Lancaster called for a special meeting on the matter. And according to its agenda, the Lancaster City Council's gonna hold a vote of no confidence against Dr Barbara Ferrer on also direct city staff and Lancaster to begin the process of gathering the documents and list the resource is to start its own public health department. Um Whittier is doing something similar. What you're is under the county's jurisdiction. Both cities, of course, were forced to close the in person dining at local restaurants last week. You know, one thing that I don't think got a lot of attention was But Overwhelmingly. The L. A City Council also Voted against Dr Barbara Ferrer and the order to shut down On premise. Dining, outdoor dining. Which is unusual, but considering they've usually been in lockstep with what's going on with the county Wittier says the mayor Joe Vinatieri, were extremely disappointed in the decision, made by the county to impose further restrictions on are already struggling local businesses who have suffered through a catastrophic year. Although we recognize the actions taken to preserve public health and safety, there's been no data, no science to support a link between outdoor dining and a surge in covert transmission. And by the way, that's not that's that's worth remembering. When all of this came down and the Late Sunday edict came down that suggested that Outdoor dining was going to be closed in L. A county as of the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We being the media and you being the public all of us together. We're saying Okay, well, Restaurants. Really? The problem is that where all of this is being transmitted, and when you looked at the numbers that the very county provided you found that only 3.1% of cases could be tracked back. To restaurants, and they were chain restaurants. Burger King McDonald's. They were not local restaurants, 3.1% of non residential transmission and you looked government offices and how much they accounted for. It was 7.27%. So by the county's very numbers, it should be Barbara for Ares office That's shut down, not local restaurants. Now, these individual cities that want to come up with their own health departments right now Pasadena, Long Beach and Vernon all have their own health departments. Because of that, they're not required to follow the city. Sorry, the county Health Department decisions and that's what we saw in Pasadena. When Pasadena said no, No, You know what we're gonna We are going to value our small business owners. We are going to keep our restaurants open day some sense of normalcy. They said that they went up the enforcement make sure people aren't looking each other. There was at the restaurants, which is what should be happening if there is a belief that restaurants are the cause of a vast number of these things. Then target those restaurants that are breaking the rules. And that that continued to flaunt or flout, flout continue to flout the rules. Those are the people that should be shut down. Not the people who have spent tens of thousands, if not $100,000 on the tents and the heaters and the plastic and the face shields and, you know, I know it's a face shield because it says face shield on the front of it. Those those restaurants those places that have been playing by the rules are not the ones that should be punished by this. The city of Pasadena, opted not to close in person dining last week and instead, like you said, moved to the stronger enforcement model. The city of Long Beach could potentially do the same thing. And the city of Bern and also but you're looking at places like You know, Lancaster up in the Antelope Valley. You've got the Santa Clarita Valley, which is also one of those pockets that just geographically is is different than all the other places around L, a county and Each of those individual areas is gonna have a different Threat level.

"Once again every day here on the John Phillip show in the one o'clock hour we make fun of Dr Barbara Ferrer because she's not a doctor and we bring on an actual doctor to give you actual information and today for the third day in a row we have the pleasure of once again recommend getting the facts not fear voice of reason in this code red lockdown madness Dr Kelly victory how are you today I am well and I am not wearing a mask I I I I I try to wear one as little as possible other than as required for me to do things like get groceries order make an occasional trip to the target it's really really irritating I thought I would be interested to hear that feedback you're getting about whether people are willing to even go to a movie theater if they were forced to wear a mask overall just listing the callers yet it sounds to me like far fewer people are willing to do it that number saying oh yeah I'll be happy to don a you know a face shield or whatever so that I can go to the big screen well outside of the fact that it's going to lessen the immersion that you're going to have into the movie because you be thinking about the mask that you're wearing and outside of the fact that you're just going to hear yourself breathing the whole time Dr Kelly want you reset for everybody some of the health effects of wearing a mask like that for an extended period of yeah absolutely I demand are not just sort of a horrible you know you're a patient that's been imposed upon us I we are not meant to wear masks twenty four seven or even for a number of hours a day and there are lots of reasons why first of all when you exhale you know one of the with the jobs of your long in addition to taking in oxygen and delivering oxygen to body tissues is to get rid of things that you don't want whether that be Polland or bacteria and best of viruses that come along it whatever then I dust particles we call for breed those out with every exhalation if you're wearing a mask you are trapping those items and on the very next inhale you're sucking them back yet so whether it's a viral particle or done you're sucking it back in your long and Technopark and give your second shot at that and then the third and fourth and fifth secondly many many many of the of the face coverings of people are wearing Randy are not actually surgical or medical face covering do you know people are wearing bandannas in these homemade things so you know it's owned by the rant Sally that are super cute but aren't necessarily functional and they are necessarily warrant or not to allow carbon dioxide that you exhale with every single exhalation to really dissipate so on the very next inhalation you're sucking in oxygen for sure but you're also looking at a whole heck of a lot of carbon dioxide we more than you otherwise would have and what we do know the studies are very clear that we are in masks for prolonged periods of time certainly even within a day let alone day in and day out week in and week out does your real job on your immune system your immune system is intended to come into contact with a lot of different environmental things on a daily basis it's part of what keeps your immune system up and running and kind of at peak performance if you will if you're constantly wearing a mask and you aren't being exposing it to anything other than what you just reached out you know the last breath in your currently washing your hands with disinfectants and hand sanitizer your immune system kind of goes on vacation your T. cells those killer cells the cells that Russian help fight off infection sure thank Hey I haven't seen anything in a while and apparently I'm not needed here in the kind of go to sleep and that's a real risk that you actually put yourself at higher risk for contracting different infectious diseases by wearing the mask continually so what you're saying Dr Kelly victory that the orders that are being put out by not a doctor barber for rare and the California department of public health and even the CDC in the WHL some of those orders include you have to wear a mask you have to stay inside all the time you can't go outdoors you have to stay away from people and you should only order delivery each one of those lowers your immune system and actually makes you more susceptible to getting a bad reaction if you catch the covert yes absolutely I mean if they really are out there hello juror to everything we know that keeps people healthy another thing when I didn't mention when you're wearing a mask people tend to touch their faces more often you said to yourself I don't I don't everybody does not just you watch people eat when I just walk around the store or when I'm sitting on an airplane I will look around and people wearing masks generally touch their faces because when the word of mouth two or three times a minute those same people if you're sitting next to him on a plane you fly the holding white and never see them touch their faces so there there's that will component of a defective people were told to stay indoors when we know that this virus does not do well posted sunlight and certainly not when it is exposed to temperatures over about seventy seven seventy eight degrees the idea that people are not being physically active because they're afraid many people can't do the things that they've been doing pre pandemic meaning going to the gym or to do the swimming pool doing the aerobics class Palade is whatever it was they did routinely they haven't been able to do so we now it is one thing to have done that for a week or ten days but we are now months into this we have people who have upset their you know ingrained fitness routine we have people whose diets have gone to hell in a hand basket because they're doing tons and tons of takeout and tons and tons of you know ordering pizzas then stress levels are through the roof when you talk to people on a daily basis about how they're feeling about the future how hopeful they feel how energized they feel it is remarkable how down people have gotten use of alcohol and other street drugs has skyrocketed we're seeing more and more of that in doctors offices and people are put off routine physical exams and routine screening so we are now seeing huge issues with people who delayed you do getting medical care for routine stuff I mean this is just been disastrous and it needs to stop on top of the you know physical recommendation some of the other side effects of the lockdowns are loneliness depression isolation can those take a toll on your body as well there's no question they are profoundly impactful we've tied grad loneliness depression isolation to everything from cancer to do you know gastric ulcers people really and that's my point people are really feeling badly about that and did you know the whole that their response to the pandemic is going to end up lugging is far greater than the toll from the virus itself I hear all

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.

"Of the guidelines that broke yesterday including the re opening of churches and the re opening of in store retail for the entire state of California if they Dr Barbara Ferrer Lexus here in LA county but to repeat the breaking news governor Gavin Newsom just concluded his almost daily now press conference where he has announced that hair salons and barbershops can reopen in forty seven counties today no waiting not a days not weeks I believe the pressure is really on now that you have so many other states that are doing these procedures opening up these businesses and the world hasn't ended so I am happy to announce that in Orange County in Ventura county sambar Dino county and riverside county barber shops and hair salons can open today now you have to make an appointment you can't walk in you have to wear a mask the barber has to wear a mask so I guess I shave is out of the question of that point also they can't do anything that requires touching of the face so you can't go for like a real fancy styling and you can't get me letters etched in your head but you can get a hair cut and at least that's something that's another sector of the economy another sector of the essential economy and a sector of people that most likely did not have a whole bunch of savings that could sit out and not work for eleven weeks straight so it's very good news now did you notice there was one county I didn't say Los Angeles county not on the list later this week governor Gavin Newsom is also going to be putting out guidelines to re opening film and television production in the state of California everywhere but Los Angeles county LA county is being deemed the epicenter because half of all cases are in Los Angeles for the state of California this despite the fact that Los Angeles county has ten million people and LA county is so spread out that you don't really see here more than fifty or sixty seventy cases in any given neighborhood maybe there are a couple of pockets where there are some nursing homes and we'll find out more about that but again barber shops hair salons ready to go nail salons not yet but we're moving now in the phase three phase two only lasted a week here I thought we'd be waiting until July to see any of these things so this is very good news and maybe we finally have turned a corner on the lockdowns we've really turned a corner on the disease it's kind of stayed the same but the way we're dealing with it is changing by the minute and we appreciate you tuning in here every day to get that breaking news and of course we'll have updates with Dr Kelly coming up at one o'clock now yesterday we told you that while hiking trails and parks and even beach bicycle paths were opened up in Los Angeles county the day before Memorial Day there needed to be a closure because there were some bad actors out in Eaton canyon nature park in Altadena right on the edge LA county C. there were people they were entering the park in places they weren't supposed to there were people that were in larger gatherings than their immediate family Verhoeven some people not wearing a facemask and so they had to close that park for everybody but what the county parks and rec doesn't tell you is part of the reason that Eton canyon got so crazy is the same part of the reason why you're seeing so many complaints of local neighborhoods that have these hiking trails and parks and it's not necessarily that people are going to use the park's that's great for some reason we decided that while we will open up the beaches for active recreation don't sit in the sand only white sand is good and we've opened up the parks we open up hiking trails we have not opened up parking lots so in order to use Eton canyon for example you're gonna have to park in a residential neighborhood right next to each canyon and some people couldn't find parking spaces and they had a parking a little close to close to drive ways and once you do that you're pissed off the neighbors then the neighbors call the cops and then they shut it down for everybody but okay lesson learned they shut down eating canyon yesterday should be open back up today right now you people haven't learned your lesson apparently Eton canyon is going to be closed until next Monday so you better think about what you did because all of you all the demands if we can say Angelenos we can say all the demons right you're in time out Jim room coming up with us in just a few minutes we'll find out if Dr Barbara Ferrer is going to be.

U.S. Reviews Guidance on Masks to Fight Coronavirus
