Beach parking lots reopen today.

The following businesses must remain closed until further notice:

**County Officials are recommending that everyone who participates in a protest, consider being tested for COVID-19. Large gatherings and people being close to each other increase the risk of contracting because people can transmit the virus when chanting, screaming or talking, especially if they are not wearing a face covering.

Everyone who wants to get tested needs an appointment.

For County site appointments, call 2-1-1.

For state sites, make an appointment online or call 888-634-1123. State sites are in Escondido, El Cajon, Chula Vista, San Ysidro and Southeastern San Diego.

CAL FIRE and the San Diego County Fire Authority are giving free testing also through 211.

**As a result of this pandemic, the RV industry is booming! More and more people are turning to road trips over flights! Some campgrounds and RV parks are up over 1000 percent from April. Why it’s so appealing is because you can keep your distance, you can drive there and you don’t have to get on a plan. Because of the high demand, they recommend you book your trip soon.

**California officials released guidelines for reopening schools yesterday.  They released a 55 page manual with all the guidelines. In addition to requirements for physical distancing, the state plans to supply every school and child care center with no-touch thermometers, hand sanitizer, face shields for every teacher, cloth face coverings for staff and students, and N95 masks for health care professionals in schools.

The state cannot order schools to close, but it can offer recommendations for districts to follow on reopening.

The guidance asks schools to try to keep students 6 feet apart at all times — in class, in the hallways and at recess.

It also says schools should consider installing “portable hand-washing stations.

The state also suggests staggering arrival times to minimize contact between students, staff and families and serving meals in classrooms or outdoors rather than in cafeterias.

It calls for intensified cleaning and disinfecting — at least daily — of frequently touched surfaces on school buses and in buildings, such as door handles, light switches, student desks and chairs.

The updated guidelines comes days after Gov. Newsom announced schools, gyms, and bars can reopen in California this week.

The rules on schools and day camps will apply statewide.

Only counties that have met certain thresholds on the number of cases, testing and preparedness will be allowed to start reopening other parts of the economy this Friday.
