There are people have been here before hand, but a lot of these people right here. This was because of the pandemic. Federal, state and local addiction moratoriums are supposed to be keeping people in their homes, even if they can't pay the rent during the pandemic. It says that who moved into Echo Park over the summer, said a lot of people like him have left their apartments anyway. Rather than fall behind on rent. I didn't want that hanging over me. Even though there was a moratorium on Enter and I didn't technically has to pay it. I'm not making money. So how? While my loading up on death, he said in addiction over back rent would hurt him for years. He recently found a temporary job working the reception desk it a tax preparation firm. Colleagues don't know He lives in the park. Which is why he asked me not to use his last name. Like I met people out here. They had good jobs. And then could the foreground. This pandemic is just, you know, I really hit him hard. There's even like families with kids here, you know, because of the pandemic groups that fan out to do. Homeless counts have put that off for now, making it hard to know how many people the pandemic has already driven to the streets. Just because there's no academic data does not discount our own eyes. Pete White directs the Lay Community Action Network, an anti poverty organization. Us traveling in communities where there were no house with people and there are now informal settlements everywhere. There is no dept that their arm or people on the streets Ella in California have had a homeless crises for years. And while officials are using pandemic relief money to get people inside White fears. What he's saying is just the beginning here and nationally. This crisis will on Lee get worse unless we figure out how to do all we can to keep people who are barely hanging on. In their homes. And for folks who are house list, figuring out cheaper and faster and innovative ways to get people inside. Brenda Modano moved into Echo Park before Christmas and says the community has formed quickly here with weekly meetings and all We get together. We discussed that girls, if anything wrong or what? What's going on? You know how many kids you could have? She was standing with stubble. What soy who was manning a table accepting donations for the parks residents. Shoes, toilet paper soap clothing. Ah, feel crappy about because by doing that I know that I'm helping some other people and that made me happy. So I moved into the park seven months ago, almost for the first time in his life, he said. 35 years after moving here from what they might let you pulled the business card out of his tent who started with so general handyman? I do I do. Drive one painting, plumbing, hardwood floor. That's what I do. So he says that when the pandemic struck work dried up the first night in his tent, he couldn't believe it, but everything happens for every zones. You're gonna get up on my feet. I know that I don't Don't get up. I'm going after I lost everything. He started recycling cans, he says, and scraping jobs together. Little by Little Adrian flooded. NPR NEWS, Los Angeles

In A Los Angeles Park, Worrying Signs Of Rising Homelessness

"Continues to pummel the nation's economy, There are troubling signs that more people are slipping into homelessness. NPR's Adrian Florido visited Park in Los Angeles, where this is becoming more visible every day. Echo Park is one of Ella's iconic public spaces. It has a big lake lined by palm trees and a postcard view of the downtown skyline. It's always had a small homeless community. But in the last few months, people sleeping in tents have filled half of the park's 16 acres. Jesse Brandy moved in four months ago after losing his job programming office phone systems. Everything's closed. Businesses aren't putting any effort into you know, telephone lines in programming those systems out of work. He couldn't afford the rent. So that left me with friends going through, you know, house the house and then became a burden. So So he came to the park and pitched a tent. There are people have been here before hand, but a lot of these people right here. This was because of the pandemic. Federal, state and local addiction moratoriums are supposed to be keeping people in their homes, even if they can't pay the rent during the pandemic. It says that who moved into Echo Park over the summer, said a lot of people like him have left their apartments anyway. Rather than fall behind on rent. I didn't want that hanging over me. Even though there was a moratorium on Enter and I didn't technically has to pay it. I'm not making money. So how? While my loading up on death, he said in addiction over back rent would hurt him for years. He recently found a temporary job working the reception desk it a tax preparation firm. Colleagues don't know He lives in the park. Which is why he asked me not to use his last name. Like I met people out here. They had good jobs. And then could the foreground. This pandemic is just, you know, I really hit him hard. There's even like families with kids here, you know, because of the pandemic groups that fan out to do. Homeless counts have put that off for now, making it hard to know how many people the pandemic has already driven to the streets. Just because there's no academic data does not discount our own eyes. Pete White directs the Lay Community Action Network, an anti poverty organization. Us traveling in communities where there were no house with people and there are now informal settlements everywhere. There is no dept that their arm or people on the streets Ella in California have had a homeless crises for years. And while officials are using pandemic relief money to get people inside White fears. What he's saying is just the beginning here and nationally. This crisis will on Lee get worse unless we figure out how to do all we can to keep people who are barely hanging on. In their homes. And for folks who are house list, figuring out cheaper and faster and innovative ways to get people inside. Brenda Modano moved into Echo Park before Christmas and says the community has formed quickly here with weekly meetings and all We get together. We discussed that girls, if anything wrong or what? What's going on? You know how many kids you could have? She was standing with stubble. What soy who was manning a table accepting donations for the parks residents. Shoes, toilet paper soap clothing. Ah, feel crappy about because by doing that I know that I'm helping some other people and that made me happy. So I moved into the park seven months ago, almost for the first time in his life, he said. 35 years after moving here from what they might let you pulled the business card out of his tent who started with so general handyman? I do I do. Drive one painting, plumbing, hardwood floor. That's what I do. So he says that when the pandemic struck work dried up the first night in his tent, he couldn't believe it, but everything happens for every zones. You're gonna get up on my feet. I know that I don't Don't get up. I'm going after I lost everything. He started recycling cans, he says, and scraping jobs together. Little by Little Adrian flooded. NPR NEWS, Los Angeles

"Josh. Cease. All right. So was this earlier in the week we were talking about Um, we were talking about Tuesday. Yeah, because there was threat. It was before the governor was threatening to shut down bars and restaurants and Jim's places where people go to try to get healthier. And you you get healthier. You help your, uh, your whole body your whole system and you fight off this Corona virus. I mean, And and so they were unfairly targeted. A lot of people thought and so we were talking about that on the air earlier this week, correct. I mean, that's what right? Yeah, Tuesday afternoon and a caller pointed out. That they were watching a spokesperson for Lifetime talk about Lifetime health club talk about their their numbers and and the fact that they think they've had somewhere around impressive impressive numbers like millions and millions of visitors. Since they're reopening and minuscule. I mean, like points. You're zero something percent of cases that ended up being positive there. Whatever contact trace it back to their all right. So let's bring in the senior area Director for Lifetime Jesse Brandon Berry and Hey, Jesse, Welcome to the Mark. Blazer Show. Thank you very much for coming on today. Hey, guys, How are you? Good evening. They doing fantastic. So what are we were just kind of speculating. But what are the actual numbers? We know Lifetime is there are a lot of different states all across the U. S. You have a bunch of these, but give us the numbers on this because this is very, very impressive and unfairly targeted were Jim's Andre. As of right now in the state of Ohio. They have. You know they're not on the radar as of right now, but bring us up to speed. What are the actual numbers with this? Yeah, thanks for that. And we're certainly very thankful to have the opportunity to continue to operate. So as you can imagine, we've been, uh, post like myself have been glued to the TV all weekend. Um And waiting for updates but nationally were at just over 21 million visit since re opening our club first club back in Oklahoma City. The beginning of May and run a point. Ju 04%, So I think you had a collector of heard earlier. That I can give you. You know, Ohio specific, too, because this is really all where I spend my time all day between both of my markets. So at the end through the end of October, we were just south of a million business in Ohio alone, which is pretty incredible to think across our six clubs and three major cities. And the Ohio were even better than the national average Red 0.11%. So we feel good about that. We certainly are dealing with it every day, just like you folks and everybody else out in the community. But you were being smart about it and trying to take every precaution possible. Senior area director for Lifetime Jesse Brandy Barry is joining us, Jesse in your estimation, Why are gyms Being targeted. We know before that there were lawsuits that began while Jim's were shut down. And then those everything was lifted because they lost in court trying to keep this all closed up. Why do you think gyms are being targeted? Yeah, well, I think we've in some states were still unfairly lumped into you know other categories like restaurants and bars simply because, you know, tradition, especially pre. Cole did Were larger clubs like ours with a lot of folks come in throughout the day. We get a lot of swank's. Um, but many states, many governors have learned. I think over the 67 months of dealing with the pandemic and learning about the virus. That worm were recently aligned with, you know, and considered an essential business. When you look at the even like the stay at home advisories across many states. You know, we need to be categorized as essential. Bellowing from a wellness perspective of preventative medicine, but also mental health piece too. And anybody using a club today or going into work out this evening, I think would agree with that. Yeah, no question about that. So can you give me some specifics? As far as You guys are tip top. As far as safety. I mean, you guys are combating every way that Kobe could try to infiltrate in the lifetime. So can you give me some examples of just you know some of the things that you were doing that your manager's air doing that the people, not just the managers, by the way, I would imagine either, Jesse, but all of the members that go there Everybody. This is this is a whole collective effort. Everybody wants to, you know, Lifetime to stay open all the gyms to stay open and they're all going toe. I guarantee do what they can while they're there to make sure that that happens. But can you give us some of the examples that Ugo Yes. I appreciate that. I certainly agree with those state level around taking a stance of personal responsibility, and that goes without saying that you know, that's the what we asked for all of our team members. So their members that were utilized in the club, But we've taken stances of temperature standing when you enter into the club. We're doing weird. How obviously hitting those high touch disinfection. Processes throughout the day. Every half hour. We do it mid day religiously at one o'clock, and then we do it when the club's closed, So we closed the club's a little bit earlier. Now since re opening and do a full disinfection with our pumps prayers are EPA grade. Just in fact, him as well with that we've got reservation all made for a large group classes. We're certainly managing day today on asking folks to keep their mascot actively exercising in the state of Ohio. We contact trace utilizing our CCTV our cameras inside of the clubs. With our corporate risk team finishes a lot. You know, every single day and that way? No. Now that that's you know, really, for us blocking and tackling for the foreseeable future and things that you know, behaviorally will keep here for the foreseeable future. Just to keep everybody and say, Well, well, hopefully past this paying them because, Well, yeah, and you mentioned the masks there. But you're you guys a reasonable because there are people who will say Do I really have to wear mask when I'm on an elliptical or when I'm on the treadmill? Or when I'm you know, really exerting. And the answer is no right. I mean, they don't have to wear that while they're doing that, that if they're actively exercising, you're saying, Yeah, You can take that off because clearly it hinders your ability your oxygen and taking all of that. Well, that's yet it's It's consistent right now. With the state of Ohio. I would tell you we'll do whatever it takes in terms of limitations or restrictions as they come down the pike and I have seen other states recently. Moved to stricter measures around mascot full times. But as of right now we're following aligned with what the current workers are. Senior area director for Lifetime Jesse Brandy Berry,.
