Advocacy
Support AB 420 (Quirk-Silva and Valladares)
Public health: Amusement Parks and COVID-19
Great news! Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva is authoring legislation to accelerate the safe re-opening of the Disneyland Resort and other California theme parks. Under current guidelines, large theme parks remain closed until their counties achieve the Yellow Tier 4 – an overly-restrictive rule that will keep the Disneyland Resort shutdown until late this year. AB 420 changes this unrealistic and unnecessary requirement and allows large theme parks like Disneyland to re-open their counties reach the Orange Tier 3. In plain English, that would allow the Disneyland Resort could re-open months earlier than is currently the case – restoring tens of thousands of jobs and tens of million in tax revenue.

Applications Coming March 1
The coronavirus crisis has hit many Anaheim families hard, and you may be struggling to make ends meet. Paying your rent may already be difficult under normal circumstances, but lost jobs and work hours due to the economic and health impacts of the virus have made it near impossible.

Now, in the second phase of the program, Anaheim is offering help paying off rent debt from April 2020 to March 2021. Applications will be available March 1-31, 2021

CDC: Double Masking Helps Reduce Exposure To COVID-19
“Researchers determined double-masking or wearing tightly fitted medical masks can reduce exposure to infectious aerosols by 95 percent — demonstrating that the better the masks fit, the better protection they provide. Medical procedure masks don’t always provide robust protection alone because air can leak around their edges.”
