I have to say, I was like freaking out we have two flavors to try today but there was a third flavor we didn't get that was super cute. The flavors were trying our Unicorn which tastes like cotton candy and birthday cake, which is yellow cake with rainbow. Sprinkles. These are not only available at Walmart. They're also at target Safeway and more and what I noticed about these is that they're very large large like the size of rigging frozen waffles do smell amazing they really do. And I, also GONNA say usually frozen waffles tastes the same I have high hopes for these I think these are gonna be different. What are you trying I? What's the Yellow One? Is What the Unicorn? Birthday. Look it looks like a birthday. Okay. Let's go birthday cake. Okay. That tastes like a birthday cake. These are really moist. They taste like cake. That's really good and the stats are really not bad hundred and thirty calories per waffle two and a half grams of fat five smart points. But I want to say one thing like these are not I feel like in the past like four or five weeks, we've tried a lot of frozen waffles. And they're all the same even the ones who trader Joe's that are Pumpkin flavored. There's something about this waffle. That's a little special do agree. Yeah. Definitely, and I was just noticing that you don't need butter or Maple Syrup on that. I mean this is just fine by itself. You know I totally grandma try the Unicorn cotton catches interesting because they have such perfectly deep wells. What do you call those nooks and crannies? what do you call in English mapping it is. Yeah. Waffle House. Yeah. They're really Nice deep-sea coach and a lot of Sierra remade ours pacman. Oh cute wait. What are the little dots in this one? Sheri's berries I think right and cotton candy. I like the birthday cake more. Yes, that's amazing. These are amazing. Kellogg's makes eggo right. But these are not under the eggo brand I. Don't think are they know? They're not. So you don't have to leg that is really interesting for her. Nope you don't have to go your Lego Mike. Okay next we are trying this is a product that I find very exciting and unique foster farms. The chicken people they have a new product called bold bites. They're marketed as kids bowl by. So they're like you get these in the fridge section and they're small individually wrapped packs like pouches of chicken and they come in flavors we have Taco and pizza today and what I really love about these portion controlled. It's sort of like saying, Hey, kids you can snack on chicken like like from being I would just dump this pouch. It tastes good into super on top of a salad it's fifty calories worth-a-chicken. Looks Amazing what are we trying? Why did you get all the fun flavors like Taco, Pizza, I can't open. which WANNA restarting with them pastor, which can open pizza Jamie can open I. Don't have the strength. s these high in sodium. No. Not really right. Three clear to read the sodium for those of us who don't have our reading. It's three fifty, which is not terribly. No this is good. I would not say tastes like pizza but I would put this on a pizza at fifty calories worth. Let's see. We got spicy lally trion. That's good but I feel like it's a stretch to call at pizza. Wait I a little bit of like Italian seasoning. Okay. Yeah. No I like it I like the concept I like creative. Let's try the TACO. Just I'm impressed and it tastes like white meat chicken breast doesn't taste like unidentifiable parts of a chicken. TACO measure making tacos. That is excellent first of all.

"waffle house" Discussed on Pardon My Take

"To say they want to keep the season going we have MLB billionaire owners crying poor and trying to get the baseball players to play a season but more importantly than all of this. We got waffle house fighting. It is an awesome day to be online because this waffle house thing broke up before we get to it. I I just read this. The State of Arizona is saying that they will allow Major League sports oriented. I think may fifteenth with no fans in attendance. All the California teams go hang out in Arizona. Yes so the Phoenix. Coyotes can play games. We've all been waiting for him. Congratulations the diamondbacks. Or they could just they could just do an entire season baseball at the spring training facility. Yeah I have hoped for MBA. I have hoped for baseball. Although the bidding is an issue in baseball moved that the owners are making right now where they're crying poor but not actually showing how they're poor is an all-time movie and then somehow spinning it to be like well. The players really gotTA do a solid here. Take a lot less money and have a salary cap into a fifty fifty split. Yeah so walk me through this because I read that the the League said that they put forth. I guess the owners put forth in option to get playing again with an eighty two game season that starts in July. Yes with fifty fifty revenue split. Now I don't know I know in football. I think it's fifty one forty nine. What does it normally baseball so in baseball? There's obviously no salary cap. And so you have incredible sal right what the players WanNa do. And I think it's totally fair. Is THEY WANNA come back and play for the prorated salary the owners are saying? We're not gonNA make any money this year. We're going to lose money this year. Let's do a fifty fifty split and that's how we can get baseball going but the owners in baseball do this funny little tricky thing where they say they're going to lose money and then they don't show anyone how they're going to lose money so they don't actually open their books they don't actually tell you. Okay this is actually what it looks like. They just cry poor and say it's got to come out of your pockets to and now. I think billionaires should pay for their own fucking rosters now. We got the whole stupid like other billionaires coming Jay Pritzker and the governor of Illinois coming to bat for the billionaire owners being players really have to make some sacrifices here. How about the about the album? How play paying prorated? It's also crazy. Because what do you do? There's no salary cap in baseball. So now you're saying there's going to be a salary cap for one year. They signed one. Year deals random numbers and then next year they go back to the allardice. How it works if you make a concession in negotiation with the billionaire chances are he'll probably give you that concession back here so that he can make less money or she can make less money. So what you're saying to me. Is that this year if you hypothetically have a contract that pays you twenty million dollars right. You're not GonNa get your twenty million dollars so you're not even prove you're not even GonNa get that portion of the salary for the Games that you will play instead you're going to get a percentage of what your team's roster the entire salary for teams roster is based on how much revenue the League is bringing. Okay yeah that's going to be tough sell to the players association. If our player. I am sure there will be public pressure to try to get them back to play. I just know I. I'm not going to be someone being like players. You have to take less just because the guys are saying that they're the people in charge you're saying they're losing money even though they won't tell you how they're losing money right to open up the books open up the boheme see the book. Let's see the books. Open the fucking box. Charity Effort Yeah Jay Pritzker has like three billion dollars so pretty good for him to be like hey players really got to make a sacrifice. Yeah so I guess it looks like even if you know. Arizona's opening up a lot of these other states are thinking that they're going to open up for major exports. You're still not going to have fencer. And that's that is an issue if you're a billionaire owner you're a business person and so you're like. Oh Shit. I'm not GonNa make as much money this year. So why don't I don't know why don't they just ask for more money and TV rights because for every person that doesn't go to a game they're going to be watching on TV Yeah it's it's eighty two game season. They're proposing starting July. I I actually think the TV like people will watch it a lot more on TV. Not only because of this captive audience but eighty two game. That's a sprint. Like if you have five game losing streak in the eighty two game you're sunk. It just means more that yeah. I like eighty two game season also. Let's let's go across the pond real quick. Our DYNO'S ARE WHIPPING. They're fucking wagon. These daigneault's are dominant. The only reason that they lost the game. The other night they gave up seven runs in the ninth inning. What Avenue we've been dealing with the bullpen. But that's for another day. Well the bullpen shaky for sure. I'd like to see a little bit more production of the leadoff spot situational hitting. It's early in the season and the defense is going to get better. So you're not gonNA see too many of those crooked numbers as we get into later months. Whenever the end of the Korean baseball season traditionally is yes when that will call episode timber in September are bullpen so November we just need the bullpen to settle down October ish. Yeah around a in October adjacent month. I really wish that they would just put one of those fucking mannequins that's in the stands wearing a Marlins Jersey. Yes Oh speaking all thrown save it. Save my cool throw all right cool thrown and we'll get to all right. Let's talk waffles because that's a real news of the day so we have an emergency Wednesday reading Because we have one of the greatest now. I don't whenever these get posted online. We don't know if they're true but let's not all be fucking assholes and be like fake. Let's just have fun with it and say there's a ninety five percent chance wait are fun? I don't mean to derail the conversation. Can we go back to that? Nba Secret meeting that happened. Today was Kyri involved. I don't believe so I think it was Lebron. Jaanus coyote is going to have some lie about the Illuminata the NBA getting together citing their fate. I also heard a wild take today about Max. Kellerman saying that What was it? Oh he was saying that if they come back and play a playoffs it will be a an asterix next to that team forever. Just like this. Everyone says the spurs only have four and a half titles. We do say that everyone. I can't go twelve hours. Integrating the Spurs Dynasty love. When these talking head guys they're like yeah like Joe Blow Sports Fan. You know he's just walk around the Barbie and like those spurs those four and a half titles. I double I liked it a double trigger week. Oh yeah the lockout your no bill would remember that although I mean. Let's be fair here. If the Lakers win hank is absolutely putting Ron James. Lebron James It does not count okay waffle House waffle house so we have this post called. My boyfriend keeps getting into fights with a cook at Waffle House. Here's how starts. I know this sounds really weird but here it is my boyfriend and I have been together for three years. We met and started dating when we were both in graduate school. That's actually a good note to have their. They have advanced past bachelor's degree. I go back to college to pursue a different career. We are both finished now in live together. Making a fairly nice combined income. Our income is relevant because we could afford to eat somewhere. Nice when we're out and about but he always wants brex breakfast food okay. Real quick first of all. Let's not shame people that eat waffle house because now if you're a millionaire you should still be going to waffle house on a regular basis. It is the best night food. It's the best brands. Drunk food. Great Waffle House Shrunk waffle. House is one of America's finest institutions. He's Goo. She goes on to say when he was a child. His Dad couldn't stand eating breakfast type food in the afternoon or evening so as mom would make him waffles pancakes eggs and Bacon and evening whenever his dad was busy or out of town? It's a wonderful and safe memory form when he goes to his happy place. He says that's where he always goes. I liked this memory because it's basically the grown up version of when you're eight years old and you say when I'm an adult I'm GONNA eat candy for dinner And then I- spoiler alert. I actually have done that many times. It is kind of a weird move though for a dad to say. We don't eat breakfast food at dinner time. He's a rules. That's that's Kinda bizarre to be. I don't like that. I one time I was at a grocery store. There's person that was behind me in line. I was buying stuff to make breakfast for dinner and the guy was like. Are you making making breakfast? And I was like. Yeah he goes. My wife won't let me eat breakfast for dinner. I felt so bad guy. Said that is really sad My boyfriend is an incredibly nice and caring person. He's I love these these long diatribes where they just try to set up like no guys. He's actually totally normal. And then drop the hammer like my boyfriend is the sweetest nicest person ever occasionally. He likes to fuck his mom in front of me but I love him otherwise. I'm in the best relationship in my life. My boyfriend's sometimes likes to bring guns out in the bedroom figure. We've all got our kinks. My boyfriend is so in tune with my feelings but every now and then he fakes like he's going to push me in front of oncoming traffic. I'm afraid he's GonNa kill me. Listen I've got such a great boyfriend. We're in the best relationship of all time. It's something I could only have dreamt about when I was a little girl. He owns this island code little Saint James and he goes there a lot with some of his friends. He he makes good money. So we're doing pretty well. We have a beautiful house in Manhattan. Okay so back to the story. He loves animals in his kind. This is really. She's doing the checkless of like he's not a sociopath. He loves animals in his kind and gentle with every bug bird and pet that he comes across to you..

most of us have been out to eat today restaurants in Georgia we're allowed to open for dine in service as the state continues to loosen coronavirus restrictions Tennessee's re opening retail stores Kentucky's re openings of health care services dog groomers can reopen in Wisconsin we're corona virus has hit harder it's different the governor of New Jersey said today restrictions continue indefinitely and the governor of New York said he expected to extend them for the city and its suburbs but the lunch crowd came back in parts of Georgia as our affiliate WSB found a chance to eat inside a restaurant Kim Kucera says this Brookhaven waffle house was her first choice the family hang out we are talking about the whole field in this family in the champ wasn't here this day but the company says no matter who walks in some things haven't changed they're going to get that welcome the waffle house the greeting that we're all excited to be able to give them for when they come in it'll be very clear where they can and cannot said company spokesperson in Gerry boss showed us the big red tape strapped across some of the books and some of the schools are also off limits to maintain safe social distancing the cooks and servers are all wearing masks and X. marks the spot where you can stand as you wait for a seat some don't like governor camp's decision to allow restaurants like this to re open their dining rooms but boss believes many of the critics may be able to work from home while still collecting a paycheck to say that when they still have all of those things we want to be here to make sure that everybody who wants to go and have the opportunity to can take care of themselves and their family that's the American way as for Kim cassette as she feels comfortable eating inside says there's a sense of home here and it all starts off with waffle house what can't get any more American the waffle house right many will never feel comfortable venturing out or re opening a business without a vaccine and most experts think that's at least a year away some scientists are considering rather unconventional ways to speed up the process one of them raises some moral questions we're joined by Dr Angela Baldwin of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx is also part of our medical team here at ABC news Dr Baldwin this method involves injecting healthy adults with live coronavirus correct so this is called a challenge trial where healthy adults are divided into two groups one group received a placebo and the other group receives the potential vaccine but both groups are injected with the virus and the point is for them to for researchers to see how effective the vaccine is against the virus and this kind of speed up the timeline because normally in a normal situation what somebody receives a vaccine the researchers just have to kind of wait for that person to naturally be infected with whatever virus or disease that the vaccines intended to treat is it the only way to do this definitely not this normally vaccine trials go through three phases phase one phase to help determine the specific dosing that safe and then you know an overall kind of safety of the vaccine and then in phase three is when they do these large very large trials for the enroll thousands of patients and a half receive the vaccine the other half isn't but then they just kind of track them and follow them throughout their daily lives and see okay all this group you know they were exposed to the virus and it looks like the vaccine worked the problem is these are just very long and then kind of a bit cumbersome and so that's why some researchers are proposing this challenge trial the kind of by pass phase three doesn't raise any moral dilemmas definitely a moral dilemmas they do try to mitigate the risk but the fact of the matter is we are taking otherwise healthy adults and injecting them with a virus that could have serious consequences including death the other side they do try to mitigate the risks they would only be enrolling healthy adult volunteers without underlying medical conditions but the problem is we do know that unfortunately there are young people who are still dying from call the nineteen you may also not have any underlying conditions there's still so much we don't know that just makes it's completely unsafe and the other problem is if somebody does get very sick you know we're dealing with a health care crisis right now work the critical care that one may need may not always be readily available and resources may be scarce so to inject somebody of the virus and the potentially kill them and put them in a situation where they urgently need critical care that might not be available raises a few eyebrows from from office I guess it's tempting though when everyone wants the vaccine this seems like the speediest way you know if they could and and one of the questions we ask ourselves is how much does this speed up the the normal course of us finding a vaccine right so if it only speeded up by one month maybe not that great of an idea of the speeded up by six months eight months okay maybe but also the thing to realize is that the challenge trials only one part of a of a two step process these researchers are suggesting would replace phase three so you still have the challenge of trial where the people are given the live virus but then in the second part they would need to test the vaccine on the most vulnerable members of the population right the elderly people under my medical conditions these are the people who really need the vaccine so we need to make sure it's safe in them so during the second phase they would give each of those types of people the vaccine but they would not be injecting them with the with the virus so that means we still in this kind of things were waiting for these people to in the natural course of their days be exposed to the virus so it's really not short meaning that the for the third phase by that much if you think about it who's going to decide ultimately you know that's a very good question I think ultimately we have these things called internal review boards RBC and they are designed to look out for the welfare of participants in subjects in studies and I think it's basically going to fall on the individual IRB's to decide whether or not they're going to allow this to to commission their institution Dr Angela Baldwin of the ABC news medical unit while the world waits for a vaccine all of us adapt to new routines out of our offices and working from say the kitchen table firms are now debating how and whether to repopulate offices small workers are deciding whether they're comfortable taking off the sweat pants and putting back on the suit consumer minute vices law firm said soy Hauser group you joins us from Chicago we're all kind of getting used to this aren't we yes you know I think this is going better than many law firms thought it would technology working well generally people are productive at home some people even like it what's not to like you can be in your pajamas and still accomplish the same kind of work you know in a candid moment a lot of lawyers would probably tell you that and I think that there is upside for both lawyers and for firms to do that the flexibility is something the people of wanted since before the crisis in some law firms before the crisis we're taking small steps towards being more flexible about where people worked and they saw upside both in attracting talent who wanted to be working where they were comfortable where they were where it was convenient also for the law firms there's a big expense of course on the real estate side real estate for most law firms is their second biggest expense behind paying lawyers so they're interested long term many law firms are in using less space why would any firm go back to renting expensive space again if this is working it's that's a great question different firms are different so some firms before the crisis we're happy to move towards less space and I think that the crisis will accelerate the move towards less space for those firms other firms the before the crisis had a culture of being in the office together they placed a premium on facetime and I think after the crisis some of those firms will revert to form and they will want to be in the office more so there will be some that accelerate towards work at home more and take on less space and I think others will want to snap back to how they were previously law firms like many other firms can be notoriously inflexible though about people's time has the shortest that it can work differently I think that this crisis has proven that actually can work pretty well for many lawyers in many firms different lawyers have practices that lend themselves to working remotely so for example a lawyer who needs to appear in court or take depositions in person that doesn't work as well remotely of course others though K. and worked quite productively from anywhere and that works for the firm in for their clients when you ask people what the impediments are to remote working some of the things that come up are things like whether working remotely as an impediment to mentoring opportunities for young and up and coming lawyers they

S. B. latest news and talk you're listening to an ABC news special copay nineteen what do you need to know in the B. C. news correspondent Amy Robach and with me now is ABC chief medical correspondent Dr Jen Ashton and there is some big news about colleges and universities considering re opening in the fall let's go through this systematically how it would work well first of all I mean we have to acknowledge is a complex situation in the health and safety of not just this population but the entire college and university community is obviously priority number one but here are some things that we know at this point medically we know that the college age group is at a lower risk of severe covert nineteen disease we also know that in this age group and in this environment social distancing is definitely going to be uniquely challenging and we also know that there are people in these communities whether they're college students with pre existing medical conditions or the staff or faculty that worked in and around colleges that could be vulnerable and may be at higher risk as well what options should be considered well I think there are some theories that are worth really exploring the first thing is is can we modify the timing of the spacing some of the classroom activities some of the other activities they shouldn't be looked at like an all or none decision in terms of sports theatre dormitory dining all of those things could be modified it's not an all or one situation and we have to remember that masks once the CDC recommended that for the general public they may be a key tool in reducing the transmission of this virus in the college communities from a health standpoint what do we still need to figure out well look luckily we have a little bit of time to do this but I think there is still a lot of things we don't know where to begin with we don't know what the role of rapid testing on a college campus can look like we don't know whether to college students and whether our kids will actually be compliant with some of the social distancing measures and we really don't know when you talk about risks which is worse right now going back to college in some way shape or form or take taking another year plus and not going back you both have to weigh those risks head to head and it's not an easy answer all right Dr Jenna you're sticking around to answer questions in just a bit in the meantime we turn out A. B. C.'s kera Phillips in Washington DC with the latest headlines for us hi Amy well these are some of the stories that were watching plans to re open the economy are taking shape in a number of states restaurants in Atlanta starting up again with new rules in place for diners today including tables six feet apart and servers wearing masks and in New Jersey governor Phil Murphy is unveiling what he calls responsible re opening driven by quote data science and common sense and Texas governor Greg Abbott also detail in the plan for ending his statewide stay at home orders and re emerging for the first time today after pretty brutal bout of the virus British prime minister Boris Johnson apologizing for being away for three weeks and warning it's too soon to end the locked down in the U. K. speaking outside number ten Downing Street Johnson says we are now beginning to turn the tide on this disease but says he refuses to throw away the public's effort and sacrifice by relaxing the lockdown too soon thank you well the mayor of Las Vegas made headlines last week when she volunteered the city as a control group to see if social distancing is working joining us now to talk about how and when Las Vegas will reopen as Clark County commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick welcome commissioner and I want to first start by asking how you feel about mayor Goodman's comments well I don't agree with her you know my colleagues and I who oversee the beautiful Las Vegas Strip bill that we have to our highest priority needs to be the health and safety of not only our residents we work on this trip but the visitors who come to visit us yeah and that said the mayor also feels hotels casinos restaurants should reopen right now when do you think they should reopen and what will the economic impact three well we've been working every single day with our medical experts across the state a resort association are McCarron airport and the convention that's already so we are working in that direction testing is the key to getting us back open and we are in the middle of expanding that testing opportunities so we will open only when it's safe and we have the most stringent priorities and policies in place can you talk a little bit about specifically how the county is working with the casinos there and other businesses to prevent another outbreak when you do eventually re open well I thought back to we we have been successfully doing social doesn't change we are ramping up casting today we can do up to two thousand tests today we anticipate by June first being able to ten thousand task our hotel partners and our airports they're making some adjustments so that our visitors bilberry see it coming back and that is our priority and we'll invite everybody back when we feel that we can meet those and do you do you how do you feel the people of Clark County are doing in terms of doing that social distancing and following the guidelines you know we're doing a great job every single day we look at different ways I mean even as we bring back our own stops we have to think about how do we have that social distancing and the grocery stores we have lines out for running grocery lines one way I'm so I I'm very proud of what we're doing in our community on the social distancing face while commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick we know it's a tough job thank you for leading the people who use Sir we appreciate your time today thank you get back to work some schools may still be close so where do we go from there the CEO of childcare provider bright horizons Stephen Kramer is here to tell us and Stephen thanks for being with us I know that you have locations daycare locations across the country how many of your facilities remain open so we have a hundred and fifty centers here across the United States that are continuing to be operational and are clearly working under covert nineteen protocols yeah that is pretty surprising I think for a lot of us and and I'm sure so helpful to so many who need your facilities how are you able to keep them open safely absolutely so first and foremost we are focused on those hundred and fifty centers on providing care for essential workers most typically healthcare workers in so first and foremost we are really focused on that particular population in terms of keeping our staff as well as children safe we have implemented processes and procedures in conjunction with a medical expert Dr Kristen Moffett from Boston children's hospital whereby we are ensuring that we are able to keep children safe keep staff safe and really make sure that we are operating both from hygiene perspective as well as from a safety perspective really in an appropriate way so hundred fifty centers open right now what changes will need to be implemented though when day cares fully open back up yes so I I think families can expect a number of changes from what they experience prior to the pandemic also examples include pick up and drop off so often times they will be seen either staggered pick up and drop offs or alternatively it may be curbside pick up and drop off I think certainly I health checks either being asked to be done at home or being done at the centre when they arrive is an important element of keeping everyone safe in addition to that the teachers they will be wearing masks when when families returned and certainly in the bright horizons centers that are open today our teachers are wearing masks also those are the kinds of things they might expect in addition to enhanced hygiene protocols yeah it's Stephen is there anything parents can do now to be prepared for what's to come I think there are things that parents can be doing I think first and foremost it's really important for parents to make sure that they are checking the health of their child each morning and each and every day to make sure that they are not bring their child if they have any sign or symptom of a health issue I think in addition to that children won't be used to the teachers wearing masks that's not something that they would have experienced previously and so my recommendation would be to as a parent start wearing masks around the house start to educate your child that heroes wear masks and certainly the teachers in the centers are heroes and so experiencing and exposing them to that concept is important and then finally I would encourage pet parents to prepare themselves they need to have a little bit of extra patience and I would encourage them to show appreciation for the teachers who are working tirelessly through both now and in the future in the child care center environment I think so many parents are home right now have a absolute renewed appreciation of teachers and I love what you said heroes wear masks that's awesome Stephen Kramer thank you so much for being with us today we appreciate it thank you for having me UP next right here those masks are suddenly everywhere and officials say it's a good idea but the sight of them can frighten our children some techniques for helping them deal when we come back this can be seen news special continues after this eleven eleven thirty

B. latest news and talk listening to an ABC news special Kobe nineteen what you need to know once again here is ABC news correspondent Amy Robach new questions every day about this pandemic emergency Dr Jen Ashton is back with us with some answers to your questions and Dr Jenn we've got our first question I have a family member who needs to fly for work are there any other safety measures besides gloves and masks that you would recommend that is really the most important for the passenger you can try to plan the time of that travel maybe to lower peak hours if that's possible but what's interesting about travel is that some degree of travel is not gonna be optional or elective in the near future so we're starting to see as we've heard before airlines start to play around with how they can help reduce the risk so again cover your mouth and nose clean your hands and for now as an individual that's the best you can do all right our next question our sinus drainage and post nasal drip possible symptoms of cold at nineteen even without a fever interesting because we're hearing the CDC revise the symptom less straight they added six symptoms to cope in nineteen he used to be fever cough shortness of breath now they've extended it to body aches headache loss of smell taste sore throat even headache but here's the important thing with the post nasal drip and allergies we are an allergy season and as I always say you can have more than one thing at a time so yes it's possible that you could have a mild case of cobit and allergies and one of the new symptoms the CDC added was a sore throat so again above the neck symptoms it is possible and I'm sure we're gonna be seeing that list of symptoms get expanded in the future next question I'm a college professor recovering from coded nineteen and I'm struggling with sudden loss of secondary language fluency has there been any research on cognitive impairments related to cope with nineteen no formal research and data out yet Amy but you can imagine how frightening that would be if you start to notice these we you and I've talked here about neurologic manifestations to cove in nineteen there have been reports in the medical literature of people presenting with headache seizure dizziness loss and smell and taste are neurologic symptoms so cognitive function we may see that certainly and seriously cove in nineteen patients who have been in and I see you that's to be expected but we'll we'll hope that those things return back to normal okay next question we've been talking a lot about pregnancy this one about new moms is it safe to vaccinate babies or give booster MMR shots without testing them for cove in nineteen any expected complications like fever or anything else a couple of things with this because it's really important for the American academy of pediatrics talk about the risks of delaying infant immunizations in the setting of the covert nineteen pandemic number one fever is a possibly a good reaction of our body to anything whether it's a vaccination for exposure to something like Kobe right now pediatricians offices are not testing babies for cove it before they administer routine I mean ations but that may change in the future and we have to remember those immunizations are important so any concerns really want the parents to talk to the pediatrician all right great advice as always Dr Jan thank you and if you have questions for Dr Ashton you can submit them on her Instagram at Dr J. Ashton will masks and face coverings have become such a familiar sight around the country in this corona virus pandemic with a number of states now requiring them during visits to essential businesses and on public transportation but the sight of them can be scary especially for children A. B. C.'s Ariel Russia has more on what you can do to help lessen their anxiety Hey there any as you know kids can ask some pretty tough questions and this can actually be scary for them as you mention when they see people out there wearing masks they see their parents wearing masks but experts say there are ways to help them adapt to this new normal and some of them are not only just educational but they can even be fine faking street shuttered businesses empty playgrounds the images of this covert nineteen pandemic are hard for even adults to process but for kids like four year old alley and five year old Adriana Alfano seeing people wearing masks is perhaps the most jarring it they just I was really strange a new normal forcing families like the L. fan I was to have some tough conversations it does open up both a big can of worms and a lot of different questions public face covering now recommended by the CDC for adults and children ages two and up how do you think the imagery of people wearing masks can affect kids well initially when kids see someone wearing a mask depending on what they associate it with before it could bring up some beer new dad and entrepreneur Trevor George and his wife Morgan wanted to help ease that anxiety we believe that in order to solve this everyone has to do their part Michigan based teacher company struggling when the pandemic hit economy it had the two created mass club issues like it has to be a way you can help and work with your branch at the same time retiring more than fifty percent of their furloughed employees or adults with a lot of characters like hello Kitty Wonder Woman Batman and Superman we have an eight month old and when my wife and I put on our Batman or Wonder Woman masks he reaches for the colors that has a familiar logo can help your child more east club a passion project with added and for every mass that's purchased we donate a medical grade version two first responders in partnership with the first responders children's need and creating a bright spot family having some fun some levity and then mixing them with information Trevor says that they have donated nearly one hundred thousand masks already any clearly this idea of wearing a branded logo mask and also doing some good while you're in the process of that is really resonate yeah it's a win win I was even saying I know kids it's scary to them it's scary to me sometimes when you see people because it is jarring seeing circle in masks all of a sudden what tools can parents use when they talk about this with their children well doctor Taylor says it's important to impress upon your kids that they're taking care of themselves they're taking care of others this is a safety precaution just like wearing a helmet when you ride a bike or buckling your seat belt when you're in the car and she also says that it's important to have these honest conversations with your kids just be up front with them lead by example when you're comfortable wearing your own mask children see that and they're more at ease as well makes sense and kids are certainly resilient aerial thank you so much for bringing us this we appreciate it for gonna turn out to Dr Jen Ashton for some thoughts on this for some perspective here I mean we have to remember it was just recently that the CDC made a major change of revising their guidelines recommending face coverings for the general public not to protect the person wearing the mask but to protect others so as the saying we're so used to hearing here in New York City it's not about me it's about a week but here's the interesting thing from a medical and scientific standpoint remember that the data on face coverings or masks protecting you was done in a lab right that's why we say in a hospital setting we put masks on sick people with a different kind of mask on health care workers but there's a big difference between scientific research done in a lab setting and those done in a real life setting so we're seeing one of major Boston Medical Center has dropped the rate of its staff cases of covert nineteen dramatically once they instituted a policy where everyone staff patients and visitors started wearing masks so we'll see how it plays out in our country Dr Ashton thank you and when we come back the army of volunteers in one city working hard to help frontline heroes shine these special continues after this about half of all men will experience ET or PT fact both E.

most of us have been out to eat today restaurants in Georgia we're allowed to open for dine in service as the state continues to loosen coronavirus restrictions Tennessee's re opening retail stores Kentucky's re openings of health care services dog groomers can reopen in Wisconsin we're corona virus has hit harder it's different the governor of New Jersey said today restrictions continue indefinitely and the governor of New York said he expected to extend them for the city and its suburbs but the lunch crowd came back in parts of Georgia as our affiliate WSB found a chance to eat inside a restaurant Kim Kucera says this Brookhaven waffle house was her first choice the family hang out we are talking about the whole field in this family in the champ wasn't here this day but the company says no matter who walks in some things haven't changed they're going to get that welcome the waffle house the greeting that we're all excited to be able to give them for when they come in it'll be very clear where they can and cannot said company spokesperson in Gerry boss showed us the big red tape strapped across some of the books and some of the schools are also off limits to maintain safe social distancing the cooks and servers are all wearing masks and X. marks the spot where you can stand as you wait for a seat some don't like governor camp's decision to allow restaurants like this to re open their dining rooms but boss believes many of the critics may be able to work from home while still collecting a paycheck to say that when they still have all of those things we want to be here to make sure that everybody who wants to go and have the opportunity to can take care of themselves and their family that's the American way as for Kim cassette as she feels comfortable eating inside says there's a sense of home here and it all starts off with waffle house what can't get any more American the waffle house right many will never feel comfortable venturing out or re opening a business without a vaccine and most experts think that's at least a year away some scientists are considering rather unconventional ways to speed up the process one of them raises some moral questions we're joined by Dr Angela Baldwin of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx is also part of our medical team here at ABC news Dr Baldwin this method involves injecting healthy adults with live coronavirus correct so this is called a challenge trial where healthy adults are divided into two groups one group received a placebo and the other group receives the potential vaccine but both groups are injected with the virus and the point is for them to for researchers to see how effective the vaccine is against the virus and this kind of speed up the timeline because normally in a normal situation what somebody receives a vaccine the researchers just have to kind of wait for that person to naturally be infected with whatever virus or disease that the vaccines intended to treat is it the only way to do this definitely not this normally vaccine trials go through three phases phase one phase to help determine the specific dosing that safe and then you know an overall kind of safety of the vaccine and then in phase three is when they do these large very large trials for the enroll thousands of patients and a half receive the vaccine the other half isn't but then they just kind of track them and follow them throughout their daily lives and see okay all this group you know they were exposed to the virus and it looks like the vaccine worked the problem is these are just very long and then kind of a bit cumbersome and so that's why some researchers are proposing this challenge trial the kind of by pass phase three doesn't raise any moral dilemmas definitely a moral dilemmas they do try to mitigate the risk but the fact of the matter is we are taking otherwise healthy adults and injecting them with a virus that could have serious consequences including death the other side they do try to mitigate the risks they would only be enrolling healthy adult volunteers without underlying medical conditions but the problem is we do know that unfortunately there are young people who are still dying from call the nineteen you may also not have any underlying conditions there's still so much we don't know that just makes it's completely unsafe and the other problem is if somebody does get very sick you know we're dealing with a health care crisis right now work the critical care that one may need may not always be readily available and resources may be scarce so to inject somebody of the virus and the potentially kill them and put them in a situation where they urgently need critical care that might not be available raises a few eyebrows from from office I guess it's tempting though when everyone wants the vaccine this seems like the speediest way you know if they could and and one of the questions we ask ourselves is how much does this speed up the the normal course of us finding a vaccine right so if it only speeded up by one month maybe not that great of an idea of the speeded up by six months eight months okay maybe but also the thing to realize is that the challenge trials only one part of a of a two step process these researchers are suggesting would replace phase three so you still have the challenge of trial where the people are given the live virus but then in the second part they would need to test the vaccine on the most vulnerable members of the population right the elderly people under my medical conditions these are the people who really need the vaccine so we need to make sure it's safe in them so during the second phase they would give each of those types of people the vaccine but they would not be injecting them with the with the virus so that means we still in this kind of things were waiting for these people to in the natural course of their days be exposed to the virus so it's really not short meaning that the for the third phase by that much if you think about it who's going to decide ultimately you know that's a very good question I think ultimately we have these things called internal review boards RBC and they are designed to look out for the welfare of participants in subjects in studies and I think it's basically going to fall on the individual IRB's to decide whether or not they're going to allow this to to commission their institution Dr Angela Baldwin of the ABC news medical unit while the world waits for a vaccine all of us adapt to new routines out of our offices and working from say the kitchen table firms are now debating how and whether to repopulate offices small workers are deciding whether they're comfortable taking off the sweat pants and putting back on the suit consumer minute vices law firm said soy Hauser group you joins us from Chicago we're all kind of getting used to this aren't we yes you know I think this is going better than many law firms thought it would technology working well generally people are productive at home some people even like it what's not to like you can be in your pajamas and still accomplish the same kind of work you know in a candid moment a lot of lawyers would probably tell you that and I think that there is upside for both lawyers and for firms to do that the flexibility is something the people of wanted since before the crisis in some law firms before the crisis we're taking small steps towards being more flexible about where people worked and they saw upside both in attracting talent who wanted to be working where they were comfortable where they were where it was convenient also for the law firms there's a big expense of course on the real estate side real estate for most law firms is their second biggest expense behind paying lawyers so they're interested long term many law firms are in using less space why would any firm go back to renting expensive space again if this is working it's that's a great question different firms are different so some firms before the crisis we're happy to move towards less space and I think that the crisis will accelerate the move towards less space for those firms other firms the before the crisis had a culture of being in the office together they placed a premium on facetime and I think after the crisis some of those firms will revert to form and they will want to be in the office more so there will be some that accelerate towards work at home more and take on less space and I think others will want to snap back to how they were previously law firms like many other firms can be notoriously inflexible though about people's time has the shortest that it can work differently I think that this crisis has proven that actually can work pretty well for many lawyers in many firms different lawyers have practices that lend themselves to working remotely so for example a lawyer who needs to appear in court or take depositions in person that doesn't work as well remotely of course others though K. and worked quite productively from anywhere and that works for the firm in for their clients when you ask people what the impediments are to remote working some of the things that come up are things like whether working remotely as an impediment to mentoring opportunities for young and up and coming lawyers they asked about whether working remotely as an impediment to a training those lawyers and they also ask about whether working remotely is an impediment to collaborating together and so some firms will find ways to address those impediments and work around them others will feel the need to be a person more often Kent Zimmerman a principle that's only because our group joining us from Chicago coming

S. B. latest news and talk you're listening to an ABC news special copay nineteen what do you need to know in the B. C. news correspondent Amy Robach and with me now is ABC chief medical correspondent Dr Jen Ashton and there is some big news about colleges and universities considering re opening in the fall let's go through this systematically how it would work well first of all I mean we have to acknowledge is a complex situation in the health and safety of not just this population but the entire college and university community is obviously priority number one but here are some things that we know at this point medically we know that the college age group is at a lower risk of severe covert nineteen disease we also know that in this age group and in this environment social distancing is definitely going to be uniquely challenging and we also know that there are people in these communities whether they're college students with pre existing medical conditions or the staff or faculty that worked in and around colleges that could be vulnerable and may be at higher risk as well what options should be considered well I think there are some theories that are worth really exploring the first thing is is can we modify the timing of the spacing some of the classroom activities some of the other activities they shouldn't be looked at like an all or none decision in terms of sports theatre dormitory dining all of those things could be modified it's not an all or one situation and we have to remember that masks once the CDC recommended that for the general public they may be a key tool in reducing the transmission of this virus in the college communities from a health standpoint what do we still need to figure out well look luckily we have a little bit of time to do this but I think there is still a lot of things we don't know where to begin with we don't know what the role of rapid testing on a college campus can look like we don't know whether to college students and whether our kids will actually be compliant with some of the social distancing measures and we really don't know when you talk about risks which is worse right now going back to college in some way shape or form or take taking another year plus and not going back you both have to weigh those risks head to head and it's not an easy answer all right Dr Jenna you're sticking around to answer questions in just a bit in the meantime we turn out A. B. C.'s kera Phillips in Washington DC with the latest headlines for us hi Amy well these are some of the stories that were watching plans to re open the economy are taking shape in a number of states restaurants in Atlanta starting up again with new rules in place for diners today including tables six feet apart and servers wearing masks and in New Jersey governor Phil Murphy is unveiling what he calls responsible re opening driven by quote data science and common sense and Texas governor Greg Abbott also detail in the plan for ending his statewide stay at home orders and re emerging for the first time today after pretty brutal bout of the virus British prime minister Boris Johnson apologizing for being away for three weeks and warning it's too soon to end the locked down in the U. K. speaking outside number ten Downing Street Johnson says we are now beginning to turn the tide on this disease but says he refuses to throw away the public's effort and sacrifice by relaxing the lockdown too soon thank you well the mayor of Las Vegas made headlines last week when she volunteered the city as a control group to see if social distancing is working joining us now to talk about how and when Las Vegas will reopen as Clark County commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick welcome commissioner and I want to first start by asking how you feel about mayor Goodman's comments well I don't agree with her you know my colleagues and I who oversee the beautiful Las Vegas Strip bill that we have to our highest priority needs to be the health and safety of not only our residents we work on this trip but the visitors who come to visit us yeah and that said the mayor also feels hotels casinos restaurants should reopen right now when do you think they should reopen and what will the economic impact three well we've been working every single day with our medical experts across the state a resort association are McCarron airport and the convention that's already so we are working in that direction testing is the key to getting us back open and we are in the middle of expanding that testing opportunities so we will open only when it's safe and we have the most stringent priorities and policies in place can you talk a little bit about specifically how the county is working with the casinos there and other businesses to prevent another outbreak when you do eventually re open well I thought back to we we have been successfully doing social doesn't change we are ramping up casting today we can do up to two thousand tests today we anticipate by June first being able to ten thousand task our hotel partners and our airports they're making some adjustments so that our visitors bilberry see it coming back and that is our priority and we'll invite everybody back when we feel that we can meet those and do you do you how do you feel the people of Clark County are doing in terms of doing that social distancing and following the guidelines you know we're doing a great job every single day we look at different ways I mean even as we bring back our own stops we have to think about how do we have that social distancing and the grocery stores we have lines out for running grocery lines one way I'm so I I'm very proud of what we're doing in our community on the social distancing face while commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick we know it's a tough job thank you for leading the people who use Sir we appreciate your time today thank you get back to work some schools may still be close so where do we go from there the CEO of childcare provider bright horizons Stephen Kramer is here to tell us and Stephen thanks for being with us I know that you have locations daycare locations across the country how many of your facilities remain open so we have a hundred and fifty centers here across the United States that are continuing to be operational and are clearly working under covert nineteen protocols yeah that is pretty surprising I think for a lot of us and and I'm sure so helpful to so many who need your facilities how are you able to keep them open safely absolutely so first and foremost we are focused on those hundred and fifty centers on providing care for essential workers most typically healthcare workers in so first and foremost we are really focused on that particular population in terms of keeping our staff as well as children safe we have implemented processes and procedures in conjunction with a medical expert Dr Kristen Moffett from Boston children's hospital whereby we are ensuring that we are able to keep children safe keep staff safe and really make sure that we are operating both from hygiene perspective as well as from a safety perspective really in an appropriate way so hundred fifty centers open right now what changes will need to be implemented though when day cares fully open back up yes so I I think families can expect a number of changes from what they experience prior to the pandemic also examples include pick up and drop off so often times they will be seen either staggered pick up and drop offs or alternatively it may be curbside pick up and drop off I think certainly I health checks either being asked to be done at home or being done at the centre when they arrive is an important element of keeping everyone safe in addition to that the teachers they will be wearing masks when when families returned and certainly in the bright horizons centers that are open today our teachers are wearing masks also those are the kinds of things they might expect in addition to enhanced hygiene protocols yeah it's Stephen is there anything parents can do now to be prepared for what's to come I think there are things that parents can be doing I think first and foremost it's really important for parents to make sure that they are checking the health of their child each morning and each and every day to make sure that they are not bring their child if they have any sign or symptom of a health issue I think in addition to that children won't be used to the teachers wearing masks that's not something that they would have experienced previously and so my recommendation would be to as a parent start wearing masks around the house start to educate your child that heroes wear masks and certainly the teachers in the centers are heroes and so experiencing and exposing them to that concept is important and then finally I would encourage pet parents to prepare themselves they need to have a little bit of extra patience and I would encourage them to show appreciation for the teachers who are working tirelessly through both now and in the future in the child care center environment I think so many parents are home right now have a absolute renewed appreciation of teachers and I love what you said heroes wear masks that's awesome Stephen Kramer thank you so much for being with us today we appreciate it thank you for having me UP next right here those masks are suddenly everywhere and officials say it's a good idea but the sight of them can frighten our children some techniques for helping them deal when we come back this can be seen news special continues after this eleven eleven thirty

S. B. latest news and talk listening to an ABC news special Kobe nineteen what you need to know once again here is ABC news correspondent Amy Robach new questions every day about this pandemic emergency Dr Jen Ashton is back with us with some answers to your questions and Dr Jenn we've got our first question I have a family member who needs to fly for work are there any other safety measures besides gloves and masks that you would recommend that is really the most important for the passenger you can try to plan the time of that travel maybe to lower peak hours if that's possible but what's interesting about travel is that some degree of travel is not gonna be optional or elective in the near future so we're starting to see as we've heard before airlines start to play around with how they can help reduce the risk so again cover your mouth and nose clean your hands and for now as an individual that's the best you can do all right our next question our sinus drainage and post nasal drip possible symptoms of cold at nineteen even without a fever interesting because we're hearing the CDC revise the symptom less straight they added six symptoms to cope in nineteen he used to be fever cough shortness of breath now they've extended it to body aches headache loss of smell taste sore throat even headache but here's the important thing with the post nasal drip and allergies we are an allergy season and as I always say you can have more than one thing at a time so yes it's possible that you could have a mild case of cobit and allergies and one of the new symptoms the CDC added was a sore throat so again above the neck symptoms it is possible and I'm sure we're gonna be seeing that list of symptoms get expanded in the future next question I'm a college professor recovering from coded nineteen and I'm struggling with sudden loss of secondary language fluency has there been any research on cognitive impairments related to cope with nineteen no formal research and data out yet Amy but you can imagine how frightening that would be if you start to notice these we you and I've talked here about neurologic manifestations to cove in nineteen there have been reports in the medical literature of people presenting with headache seizure dizziness loss and smell and taste are neurologic symptoms so cognitive function we may see that certainly and seriously cove in nineteen patients who have been in and I see you that's to be expected but we'll we'll hope that those things return back to normal okay next question we've been talking a lot about pregnancy this one about new moms is it safe to vaccinate babies or give booster MMR shots without testing them for cove in nineteen any expected complications like fever or anything else a couple of things with this because it's really important for the American academy of pediatrics talk about the risks of delaying infant immunizations in the setting of the covert nineteen pandemic number one fever is a possibly a good reaction of our body to anything whether it's a vaccination for exposure to something like Kobe right now pediatricians offices are not testing babies for cove it before they administer routine I mean ations but that may change in the future and we have to remember those immunizations are important so any concerns really want the parents to talk to the pediatrician all right great advice as always Dr Jan thank you and if you have questions for Dr Ashton you can submit them on her Instagram at Dr J. Ashton will masks and face coverings have become such a familiar sight around the country in this corona virus pandemic with a number of states now requiring them during visits to essential businesses and on public transportation but the sight of them can be scary especially for children A. B. C.'s Ariel Russia has more on what you can do to help lessen their anxiety Hey there any as you know kids can ask some pretty tough questions and this can actually be scary for them as you mention when they see people out there wearing masks they see their parents wearing masks but experts say there are ways to help them adapt to this new normal and some of them are not only just educational but they can even be fine faking street shuttered businesses empty playgrounds the images of this covert nineteen pandemic are hard for even adults to process but for kids like four year old alley and five year old Adriana Alfano seeing people wearing masks is perhaps the most jarring it they just I was really strange a new normal forcing families like the L. fan I was to have some tough conversations it does open up both a big can of worms and a lot of different questions public face covering now recommended by the CDC for adults and children ages two and up how do you think the imagery of people wearing masks can affect kids well initially when kids see someone wearing a mask depending on what they associate it with before it could bring up some beer new dad and entrepreneur Trevor George and his wife Morgan wanted to help ease that anxiety we believe that in order to solve this everyone has to do their part Michigan based teacher company struggling when the pandemic hit economy it had the two created mass club issues like it has to be a way you can help and work with your branch at the same time retiring more than fifty percent of their furloughed employees or adults with a lot of characters like hello Kitty Wonder Woman Batman and Superman we have an eight month old and when my wife and I put on our Batman or Wonder Woman masks he reaches for the colors that has a familiar logo can help your child more east club a passion project with added and for every mass that's purchased we donate a medical grade version two first responders in partnership with the first responders children's need and creating a bright spot family having some fun some levity and then mixing them with information Trevor says that they have donated nearly one hundred thousand masks already any clearly this idea of wearing a branded logo mask and also doing some good while you're in the process of that is really resonate yeah it's a win win I was even saying I know kids it's scary to them it's scary to me sometimes when you see people because it is jarring seeing circle in masks all of a sudden what tools can parents use when they talk about this with their children well doctor Taylor says it's important to impress upon your kids that they're taking care of themselves they're taking care of others this is a safety precaution just like wearing a helmet when you ride a bike or buckling your seat belt when you're in the car and she also says that it's important to have these honest conversations with your kids just be up front with them lead by example when you're comfortable wearing your own mask children see that and they're more at ease as well makes sense and kids are certainly resilient aerial thank you so much for bringing us this we appreciate it for gonna turn out to Dr Jen Ashton for some thoughts on this for some perspective here I mean we have to remember it was just recently that the CDC made a major change of revising their guidelines recommending face coverings for the general public not to protect the person wearing the mask but to protect others so as the saying we're so used to hearing here in New York City it's not about me it's about a week but here's the interesting thing from a medical and scientific standpoint remember that the data on face coverings or masks protecting you was done in a lab right that's why we say in a hospital setting we put masks on sick people with a different kind of mask on health care workers but there's a big difference between scientific research done in a lab setting and those done in a real life setting so we're seeing one of major Boston Medical Center has dropped the rate of its staff cases of covert nineteen dramatically once they instituted a policy where everyone staff patients and visitors started wearing masks so we'll see how it plays out in our country Dr Ashton thank you and when we come back the army of volunteers in one city working hard to help frontline heroes shine these special continues after this about half of all men will experience ET or PT fact both E.

More Georgia Businesses Allowed To Reopen After Friday's First Round

"The governor of Georgia says restaurants and movie theaters in his State can open up today. That's despite criticism from public health experts and president trump who? I said he supported the governor's decision but then said the exact opposite on Friday Tattoo. Parlors gyms and barbershops in Georgia were also allowed to reopen. It's one of the first states to start lifting. Statewide lockdown restrictions. I'm joined now by reporter and the hurt from our member station W. a. b. e. In Atlanta. Good Morning Emma We we know that some businesses were allowed to open on Friday and they chose not to. They just didn't feel comfortable yet. Do you get the sense. That restaurants are really moving ahead with opening their doors today now that they're allowed to do so yeah so I mean some are some aren't right but one iconic one here in Georgia that is is waffle house so they've been prepping for this day for weeks and most of their four hundred Georgia stores are going to open today with many closed booths. Though close seating things are going to look different so parties can sit further apart. There won't be condiments or reusable menus on the tables and Jerry boss is their head of PR and she says it's almost going to be like an experiment because nobody knows how customers are going to react. I mean if they're gonNA feel safe to come were saying. Hey We're here we're open and we're here to serve our community as they need us and she's making the point that this has been really hard on their furloughed employees there takeout business hasn't been great because a lot of their businesses tied to late night concerts in bars and it was also. It's been really hard on their suppliers and they need to try to find a way she says to open up safely. I'm but some restaurants are not going to do that right. They're just going to stay closed. Yeah I mean there's another iconic Georgia chain chick-fil-a which is staying curbside and drive through only and I spent the weekend calling all over the state and it is difficult to find other restaurants that are ready to reopen today particularly in Atlanta a lot of owners to saying they're not ready yet Sylvester Serrano is one of those. He owns with his restaurant with his brothers. Are Several restaurants in South Georgia? Are you think you're so early? You know there's though do a lot of cases and there's more cases out of single basil. I don't think is right. And many restaurants are bringing in some revenue likes. Toronto's are from curbside and takeout so unlike hair salons and tattoo parlors. There some business happening also worth noting. It's not easy for them to just open to dine in There's nearly forty lines of regulations from the state. They have to follow if they do from masks to social distancing for customers and on movie theaters which are also technically allowed to open today. I also couldn't find many. That were GotTa remember that Film Studios. Aren't releasing any movies right now right so you just mentioned those businesses that were allowed to open back up on Friday. Jim Salons Bowling alleys that peop- some people did show up. All right. Yeah they did. An according to the Georgia state patrol only two warnings were issued for violations of social distancing I check back in with a tattoo parlor owner in West Georgia and Columbus. I interviewed last week. And he said he had nearly fifty customers over the weekend all respecting his rules. I talked to David. Rutherford who runs a bowling alley in central Georgia in the city of Warner Robbins? And he said his location has also been open pretty successfully. Every area is different. Every state is different. Every area of the state is different. And that's like we have to other facilities in Georgia that we operate there were not opening. Because we don't feel like we can do it safely maintaining social distancing. His rules are only every third lane is open only taking staggered reservations. So they can clean all the balls between visitors. He saying look. Businesses should be allowed to retool their business models to try and do this safely So the governor. Brian Kemp got pushback on this decision from president trump after he had said something different but also Anthony Fauci who both said. They didn't agree with the plan. Any sense the governor might change course. He didn't slow down any of his plans last week. After that and said announcement though if we have an instance where community starts to become a hotspot then I'll take further action but for now we're moving forward reporter Emma her wish WABC in Atlanta.

I imagine there's some some other ray Ray who's having to go around every past the locks. Yeah and then and then. They're attacking him outcomes. Lock man don't let him. I mean to be clear.

We are closing these things in order to shelter in place with our loved ones the down in Florida. It's like listen. We have extremely good idea of who we don't want to deal with when something's going wrong let's just go ahead to practice.

"Now when we decided to turn my story into book we wondered who might write a perfect forward for it began thinking of a New Orleans novelist and bitter southerner contributor named Maurice Carlos Ruffin Maurice's debut novel last year we cast a shadow is just stunningly good rating. And I do recommend that you buy it. But when I asked mores feed be interested in this waffle House Project. I was surprised that he said yes immediately. No hesitation whatsoever a couple of days before I sat down with Venus Miller at the waffle house in Avondale estates. Maurice had sent me the first draft of that forward and bless his heart. He agreed to join us from New Orleans to read the first two paragraphs of it free. The South is my home. The salespeople are my people the Salads places on my places but when I traveled to new towns from Louisiana Genu- always take care when I walk into an unfamiliar establishment especially restaurants. I'm not looking for trouble. Yeah don't expect special treatment but I do expect normal treatment. I don't always get no more treatment. Entered a restaurant only to have the white employees stare at me into another white person broke the silence. I've been seated by the bathroom. A garbage can despite the availability of open tables near bright plate. Glass Windows once while sitting with two out of town friends who kept staring over my shoulder. They brought to my attention to painting on the wall. Painting of an enslaved woman appearing food the painting was made to evoke nostalgia for a better time than ever existed. But it made me feel sick. I've never felt sick and waffle house. I've eaten in waffle houses all over the south of Eden Wolpe houses at Sunrise and in the heat of the night when I was a writing conference in Alabama a few years ago. A friend suggested we go find a late breakfast in town my friend. She was Jewish and we laughed at a black man in Jewish woman walking into a diner in the deep south side and like a great setup for a joke but there was no joke we went. We regretted seated served. I had a crispy waffles. Swimming in Syrup would aside of Ham. I left with a full belly in a smile on my face. Just like anybody. That's the experience I've had every time I've gone to a waffle house in that's as it should be or thanks to Maurice Rough and for sharing his perspective on Waffle House and you know when I went to CVs Miller that day took Maurice's essay with me. I found myself wanting to read it to Vegas because I felt like it got to the heart of what he himself had been telling me what he believed about the company he'd worked for. Cross three decades and I just wanted to see what he would say when he heard those words makes me feel good that the company. I work for that person can feel like that. Right it. Just it just goes to the things that we actually believe in that people get and they see it and they feel it you know and that's that's the beauty of this company. So I I you know you can't buy bitter words. You know what he wrote you know. That's that's perfect. You know when you look at why we don't advertise. You know that's our advertisement.

"Gabrielle. Garrett has been awful house for less than a year but she's got big dreams she wants to rise from Grill Cook to executive he say what? Well the weird thing is that dreams like hers actually do come true at waffle house and often because if you get in their management training program. The first thing you're going to do is start in a restaurant you're GonNa Cook you're going to serve. You'RE GONNA clean. The bathrooms in Vegas. Miller went into that program three decades ago and now he's an executive vice president Waffle House. Which means that he's responsible for more than two hundred stores more or less ten percent of all the waffle houses. He has no office of course but he's got a car. He puts a lot of miles on traveling from store to store to store across Georgia in Tennessee. And you know. Every waffle house employee's name tag also lists where they were born in one of the first things. I noticed when I met visas. Miller was his name tag says Bronx New York. It's a perfect icebreaker. So when I'm walking and talking to the customers in the restaurant he say I didn't know we have a waffle house in the Bronx Bronx and that's that. And then we have a conversation about the bronx how I got down there and we just start talking about. So it's it's it's usually makes pretty good conversation now visas. I moved to Georgia for the same reason that many of our nation's most talented African American men come here to attend morehouse college in Atlanta. He was an entrepreneur from the star right. After his graduation he opened a few restaurants and dry cleaners near Morehouse and the city's other historically black colleges and universities but his location had both advantages and disadvantages when the students in session business was great when students went home for vacations and in the summertime. There was no business run and my wife. She you Was like I'm tired of the money going up and down. And and so as a joke she put my resume out there and somebody from Scotland or series absolute. We'd she did without telling you she did well telling me yeah. And so I give all credit to her She's the reason for my success. Besides being a fabulous woman she is. She put my resume out. The I got a phone call and at the time. I You know entrepreneur and I'm like I really don't need to go and and and work for somebody else. I have my own business right but one thing I've always wanted to do is just kinda learn about other businesses as you entrepreneur. He's always good to learn about his sorry came to wildfowl. And and then talked to Gary Cooper was my first division manager and the things that really interests me about. Wofford house was that we all homegrown so we all start. Doesn't matter what you've done in your previous life. Everybody that comes into the management program starts as a manager training and one at restaurant x yes at one restaurant so we'll start trade you to training program. It's about three months and then after you graduate from what we call. Woo University than you are checked into a one store restaurant in your unit manager the next stage after unit managers addition manager which is only two to three restaurants that you're on so I was a unit manager for year. I was a district manager for a year and a half. The next stage after being addition is division manager. Which you have nine stores that you're responsible okay. And I was a division manager for four and a half years and then step that as a area manager which is about twenty seven story so we kind of go in threes so as one store three store nine stores twenty seven stores and then the next stage after as a senior vice president which is about seventy five stories. And now you're an executive VP. So how many is that so I have? I'm responsible for two hundred thirty restaurants and also responsible for fifty-six We have about three hundred. Roughly three hundred franchises and so- response have Found Fifty six franchises that I'm also responsible for and those are in Atlanta for roughly a hundred and fifty stores or so in Atlanta and the rest are in actually Middle Tennessee Nashville. Murphy's Borough Knoxville and Chattanooga right right so you're all over the place over the place when you reach the level and you got two hundred plus stores to look after how many those de wind up being in physically every year on our my goal is at least stepping to one of my one of my restaurants minimum one time of year and the interesting thing with people really don't understand is that we're open twenty four hours and that means that we're responsible twenty four hours so we actually shopping restaurants on second shift right now because and I talked for awhile about incidents that have happened inside waffle houses that make the news now on that some of them including racially motivated violence or allegations of police brutality. And when that happens in one of the stores visas the person who has to handle it. Because that's his job and to do that. He says you gotTA keep one thing in mind that people are People. Every one of them is different. Everyone has his or her own concern. You have good black people bad like people. You have good white people bamboo. You have good everybody everybody. So it's not a matter of race or anything like that is about treating people the way you want to be treated and respectable people and people striving towards some common goals and and that was the beautiful thing that I loved about the South. And that's one of the things. I love about waffle house. It's like we're all equal. You know I may have a title of an executive vice president but at the end of the day. Coming off sweep you know. Cook a clean the bathrooms I pick up trash outside and and I don't feel like I'm any better than any of our people that are working in a particular store. We're all one family. So now that you've learned about Dominic's part less learn about the culture part point number one. The ways of the waffle house are so universal in the south of they become part of the way we talk or lexicon. This is particularly true when it comes to Hash browns the standard waffle house. Breakfast if you don't WanNa waffle that is offers the usual choices of meat cooking methods and toast options and you can choose between grits hashbrowns now waffle house hash browns are seasoned potatoes scattered on hot flattop grill and Brown to perfection. Although side on May also order them to be smothered with onions and covered in cheese. Scattered smothered and covered. It's a phrase that every single southerner knows regardless of how they like their hashbrowns. So let's say for instance at two young southerners. Let's say they're in college. Wake up one morning with hangover. One asks the other feeling. If the other one said scattered smothered and covered. That would be a perfectly acceptable response. The ways of waffle house or now just part of how we talk now did however learn from Vegas Miller that the list of what a waffle house will do for your hashbrowns went far longer than even I knew. In addition to the standard three scattered smothered and covered. You may also were your hashbrowns peppered with helping US chunk with pieces of ham diced. That is diced tomatoes topped with Chili and country. Meaning that it's topped with cream gravy. Well one day. I'm going to try.

It was created by former FEMA administrator. Craig fugate listen him. Explain it from a two thousand sixteen episode of the NPR game. Show wait wait. Don't tell me they are open. Most of the time and that was the index. Wolpe houses closed because of his Astra's bad. We call it red if they're open but have a limited menu. Yellow the index isn't just funny. It works because most southerners will tell you that. They depend on their neighborhood waffle house when mother nature throws life sideways which raises a bigger question. The Khanna question the bitter southerner just loves to dig into how is possible for a two thousand store restaurant chain to become in the eyes of almost all southerners something more than just another place to eat. Southern families believe it actually matters that they take their kids to a waffle house. I mean nobody down here. Thinks that way about the neighborhood applebee's and man you will mean in a moment. Put the question this way. How can a cookie cutter restaurant chain win over the hearts of millions of people?

Show wait wait. Don't tell me they are open. Most of the time and that was the index closed. Because astor's bad we call it red if they're open but have a limited menu. Yellow the index isn't just funny. It works because most southerners will tell you that. They depend on their neighborhood waffle house when mother nature throws life sideways which raises a bigger question. The kinda question the bitter southerner just loves to dig into. How is it possible for a two thousand store restaurant chain to become in the eyes of almost all southerners something more than just another anonymous place to eat plenty?

Waffle House: The destination for Southern comfort

"Waffle house. Also prides itself on being a comfort when things or anything, but wonderful and staying open through hurricanes FEMA, even has a name for it. The waffle house index. Meaning if a storm is severe enough to shut down a waffle house, then the government knows the area has been hit hard. Baiting. I have to go regardless of the hour. Apparently, it's pretty late. Of course, staying open twenty four seven means waffle houses are pretty much the go to destination for late night eating. This is probably the only place that's near open edgy. She said, it's always better when junk with who told you that. That's the bold parenting. Move this going to be helping you guys out tomorrow morning. You'll get out. When today's Super Bowl is over. Of course, the victors they'll have their spoils, but the losers well, at least they'll be able to smother and cover their sorrows at the waffle house.

"Is wild the monkey junction store in Wilmington. It's on generator power, thanks to a waffle house employee named Lindsay westcott and the jump team. She's overseeing her day job is running training and culture at waffle house. But this day, she's doing a little of everything. We have some fun. Expediting waiting tables right now, I'm making coffee swinging get off at this moment. The waffle house barely above read on Craig Fugate SR index. The only thing they've served on morning is ham sandwiches. But that's about to change. About to go to limited menu. So we opened up the first hour to try to get our bearings. And we're making all the prep right now. So we have about eight people in the back making all the press. So that we can I think we're going to in the next five minutes, the people working at the registers are slammed. The line is out the door. These are hungry people. Heard that this was the only place open to e and so we've been eating like crackers granola bars couple days, so. Nice meal. What all kinds of vegetables. Also would hot sauce really wish they had the? Yeah. Cough yet coffee. They just said to me would thank you so much got ticket by this point the restaurant is at yellow on the index. And we're looking to know to green soon once we get a few more product items this weekend, and we should be able to go to green which means they'll be able to serve just about anything you'd want. We don't have pancakes. Yeah. But yeah. But this moment at another waffle house in the area. The company's CEO has arrived Walt Amer. But Pat says you might not even notice all our name tags have first name. So they just they just as Walt they don't realize the CEO, and he's not coming in, you know, with the fanfare in an entourage. She comes in by himself for us. That's natural. That's just how it is a part of our we call our homegrown management. Few weeks later, the CEO would take out trash in Florida after hurricane Michael what we call the dumpster dance, where he was trying to pack down the garbage. When Craig Fugate got to FEMA, he tried looking at other brands and other regions. He noticed there were a whole lot of Dunkin donuts or Dunkin's. We're calling them now, but they weren't so great at reopening after storms so for now, the waffle house index is the one that counts. And when the next hurricane hits, Pat and his team activate the storm center and the jump teams will jump and the people will get their waffles, but not pancakes, sir. This is a waffle house. Coming up. This Hines really.

"The storm center here at our headquarters Norcross Georgia on Monday and week. We have mandate ever since to help monitor the storm. Pat Warner and a bunch of other high-ranking waffle house officials are crowded around a long conference table at headquarters. Making phone calls is glued on four computer monitors one showing live security camera feed from the Wilmington waffle house one. We know the restaurant has power if the cameras are working, but to also see how busy they are. Sometimes we can see is or any damage to the restaurant. So that's up on one screen of the middle screen. Typically, another monitor has a color coded map showing all the restaurants in the path of the storm of read their closed, we can show which ones around generator. And so that gives us an overall look at the at the area as storms coming on. We have a service with shows the storm track and live. Weather radars. We'll have that up. The forecast is just come in in the war room team is getting update to clock forecast. Just came out. Big big your statement. The forecast. Turns some more from the two o'clock. We're reaching out to different Benjamin teams and different stage to coordinate. How many people they have their packing their bags or their basic waiting to get the call? But we go ahead and identify who will be in that first wave of jump teams. We reach out to our management team in Virginia. And they started assembling their team members that will be ready to go in a basically within about a twenty four hour notice. The jump teams that comprised of company staff who volunteer they charter planes across the region in organized carpools they arranged for hotel rooms for every jump team member. So they're ready to roll in the soon as the storm came through absolutely brutality in North Carolina. There's no other word sobering flash. Flood emergency over almost the entire eastern half of that state. Now you've been when Florence came in. It looks like we had twenty restaurants initially that were closed because of power shoes pats. Actually reporting all this directly to FEMA. They have an online meeting room now where private companies can report how things are going whether they're open if they can get supplies delivered. It's something Craig Fugate setup inspired by how waffle house and other businesses responded to storms in through it all the waffle house war room is in all serious. We have a Bill in the stormcenter when someone on the team says something funny. They ring it somebody will throw it a movie line or something like that to kind of ease the tension like just today we were quoting airplane the movie too bad week to give up sniffing glue. Rentable Seinfeld quotes. It's easy to take the resumes. You just don't know how to hold. But you have to have the car that happens a lot where we show up in the cars aren't ready. That's a quote that gets thrown our lot. When when we think we have cars in a certain place in in our folks show up, and and they're not there. On the ground in North Carolina. The storm.

"That's a pretty big area. And that's where you need to focus your search and rescue operations, your security missions, and the media life safety type activities was kind of informal shorthand. It may have been informal. They may have been unconventional. But Craig and his team started using the index almost immediately in two thousand four we hit got hit by Francis. Those basically twenty days after Charley made landfall and then eleven days after. Francis. Made landfall we had Ivan hit Pensacola region, the panhandle. And then we had gene hit back on the southeast coast. This is kind of how the index started getting used he had to give a lot of presentations that year. So the team started calling them waffle house briefings, in fact, when I was going through my vetting process with the White House. They had heard about the wall files briefings, President Obama had just taken office after Craig success in Florida Obama picked him to head up FEMA. So they called me up. And they said, hey, we need to know what your arrangement is with waffle house or you on retainer, or you know, what kind of compensation. Do you have an agreement with them? There was no relationship. He never even talked to waffle house of what are you talking about by the time of his Senate confirmation hearing? It was all sorted out. Good morning. The hearing will now come to order today. Our committee will consider the nomination w Craig Fugate to be an administrator of the has a home spun. Florida way of describing how he handles his professional duties, he calls it. The waffle house test usually around here. Waffly ming. Let me sit your opening statement. You did not welcome. That Senate humor for you from Bill, Nelson and Joe Lieberman. So what I got FEMA? I didn't start out with a waffle house index. It kinda followed me he'd get questions about it. Newspapers wrote the occasional article, but it came back up again in Joplin in twenty eleven when a multiple vortex tornado barreled through the Missouri city, the damage was widespread almost two hundred people died right after Craig went into assess the damage he noticed the Starbucks was closed, but next door the waffle house was humming. It was during this time running FEMA that Craig finally heard from waffle house directly, and I never met with never communicate with them other than frequenting restaurants during disastrous spots and they brought their president up their chief attorney their CFO. And I thought man I must. I hope they're not mad at me. And they came in. And they were just they just wanted to meet with me and say how much they pre she added that we we had used them as their index and all stuff, and I said, you know, how do you guys do this? I mean, what kind of here, I am a fan of what kind of command post, you have you know, you have an ESE. How do you deal all this stuff? And they looked at me says, no, we don't do any of that stuff. How do they do all this stuff? How do they rushed into storm zones and get their restaurants up and running so fast. That's what I asked. Pat, Warner the waffle house PR guy. I've been reward class for nineteen years, and I'm part of our storm response team. And he told me it started after hurricane Hugo back in nineteen eighty nine. That's really where we saw we had to take it to a level where we're preparing more in the past. It was more of a local thing the local operator dealt with Hugo covered in unusually large area, which meant to made a bigger tent in waffle houses operations during the storm. Waffle house headquarters apparently called up a restaurant in the path of Hugo. It was hard to get through after a lot of trying. They got one landline connection to work. So I just kept the call going the whole storm after that. While full house got serious about storm response. We have several different what we call jumped teams. The the main jump team for jump teams a group needs. The people who rushed to the scene of a storm. It's a mix of employees from the area, plus top officials from Atlanta, typically, restaurant managers or district managers. Sometimes we'll take in some associates some cooks. They will go in to a market right after a storm. Waffle house has detailed checklists and plans. They know how to airlift people and supplies, and they bring in generators food is fastest possible..

"App. Hurricane. Florence was a weird storm. Most storms bounce off the coast and head back to see the when Florence arrived in mid-september just kind of parked itself. Over Wilmington North Carolina in stayed there. For days, the rain will barely let up here on this coast further twenty four hours had a stroke flooding with more than three feet of rain. Rivers are rising today throughout North Carolina. It's all this rain from Florence Russia's downstream. The death toll from this business insiders. Dan Brown arrived in Wilmington day after landfall streetlight is kind of the streetlights working now, and I see a few light foles on but pretty much all the bizarre dark, you know, summer boarded up, the rain was drenching. The wind was picking up all the businesses around him or closed except for one beacon in the dark the only lights on our this waffle house. Dan, made his way past the line of people waiting for a table about fifteen people standing outside and headed inside the walls inside is packed. It's an oasis. I'm spilling aches of. It's you know, there's a little a little little hint of syrup as well. I think so that's kind of what I'm smelling maybe a little coffee too. I can't tell but families are jammed into booths crowded around tables. You know, there's about I'd say, maybe a dozen line workers and cooks and chefs behind the counter, they're all running around cooking and frying and everything. All this is literally news during the storm. One restaurant was still serving up hot food today as the storm is nearly upon them or. Nope. Hooters, no wings today. Thursday, saving grace, the waffle house. But this is not a local story of a waffle house. Braving store the company activated stormcenter to monitor Florence which is of course, now category.

"Hotspots. So just wrapping up on the female waffle house story, and that'll be the segue into an investigation into the FEMA administrator with accusations of well on authorized vehicle usage. I do we need a lack of focus when you're dealing with the statistical peak of the hurricane season and a storm that's going to affect tens of millions potentially. I. It sounds fairly petty here, and we'll get to that here in a second just finishing up on the waffle house for those. That are just joining us the waffle house indicator yet that's four hour of scrambled eggs and and waffle joint with an amazing clientele at three o'clock in the morning. I love the waffle house. I do. But if you wanna get if you wanna see interesting humanity just check on a waffle house to thirty three o'clock three thirty in the morning. It's it is free entertainment on on most evenings. So in two thousand four FEMA they coined the term the waffle house index because essentially as the waffle house operates that's a reflection on the communities continuity, and if they're operating properly if the waffle house closes. Shutters or has menu limitations during any kind of a hazard? It's not just a hurricane. It could be other natural disaster events as well. Then they know that the community has taken a pretty big hit the community has suffered three color coded index levels. Green. Everything is good. Everything is just hunky Dory. Culp ascetic at the waffle house. If it is a waffle house green waffle house yellow. That's when they moved to a limited menu. So not everything's available limited menu. That means that the area might have lost power or they're running low on supplies, and as the waffle house goes. So does the rest of the community. And then we get to read we get to waffle house code red..
