so far, “Wallace said.

“I take care of my physique which means to make the heart flow,” Wallace said. “I ride a bicycle every day as much as possible. My emotional health, being aware of that, how I interact with people whether it’s online or on the phone.”

It is still unclear when Broadway will be safe to reopen in New York City, but one manufacturer now suggests the door can remain closed until 2021.
British theater producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh spoke with BBC Radio 2 over the weekend said, “For big producers on both sides of the Atlantic, the truth is that social distance doesn’t exist anymore, we can’t even plan to reopen.”
Sir Cameron is widely known for his work on successful music productions, including Cats, Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera.
“We will come back, but we need time to come back. If we don’t hear [about lockdowns lifting] in a few weeks, I think the truth is we won’t be able to return until early next year. “I think it’s quite clear,” he told BBC Radio 2.
The West End show has been closed until May 31, while production in New York City will be closed at least an additional week, until June 7.
With these two weeks deadline, it’s hard to imagine that every theater production will be ready to open by then. Until large meetings are permitted, the safety of visitors who attend the show may not be guaranteed until extensive testing is available.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo gave little indication of Broadway’s reopening schedule on Monday, saying the entertainment industry would be in the fourth phase of the country’s reopening strategy. Cuomo had previously suggested that two weeks of assistance would be needed between each reopening phase, which meant that if the first phase – the construction and manufacturing industry – reopened on May 15, it would take another six weeks before New York reached phase four.
It also did not consider the possibility of a virus revival in the fall, something the New York governor planned.
The Broadway Theater closed suddenly on March 12, leaving thousands of people losing their jobs and the future of much production in limbo. Some of the shows in the preview, including “Diana” and “Mrs. Doubtfire,” did not arrive on their opening night. Production of “Hangmen” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia” closed without plans to reopen.
Meanwhile, Broadway players continue to be busy raising funds for non-working actors and finding ways to spread excitement and positivity amid a pandemic.
As the pandemic continues, more people find themselves getting food from the food bank, and for many people it is a new experience.
Tarrant Area Food Bank partnered with Fort Worth ISD on Saturday to host mobile kitchens in four locations, which they hope will continue on next Saturday.
Food banks and school districts are just two of the many groups that feed families struggling during COVID-19.
A series of long cars stretched in front of J.P. Elder Middle School in Fort Worth, where families like Julia Caballero and her mother are waiting their turn.
“Currently, many people have been laid off. My brother was laid off. It saves a little, and every little helps, “Caballero said.
For Caballero, this is the second time getting food from one of the food banks.
Seventy percent of people who visit a food bank leave for the first time
Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said that 70% of people who access food now do so for the first time.
Marie Maloberti and other volunteers distributed 400 food boxes as the car continued to line up.
“I was very surprised,” Maloberti said. “I’ll tell you that we already have a number of people who have never thought of you to come to the food bank to get food.”
He said, the need for mobile kitchen sites continues to increase.
“The only reason we will see less is because people get very frustrated in the queue for hours with their children in the car and can’t even take boxes because of lack of food,” he said.
At Grace Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church, Senior Pastor Roy Elton Brackins said they would do anything to feed hungry people.
“Most of the food goes out of our own budget,” he said, “we have done things to restructure our church’s finances.”
The church distributed 100 lunch boxes Saturday, plus free lunches, to feed community members.
“People with $ 100,000 jobs and people with fixed income have all been hurt this season,” Brackins said.
He said the church plans to continue holding food as long as resources are available and plans to accommodate them every week.
Mothers and boys wear masks and gloves on Tuesday morning and load new shopping carts with food in the Community Table Food Bank parking lot at the United Methodist Church Memorial Church in North Richland Hills.
“We’re only 4, 5, 6 miles from Southlake and Westlake, and there are people who can’t put food on the table,” chapter president Joan Shockley said. “They have a heart of gold, the people who manage this place. So they are our number one choice.”
The Lake Chapter of the Young Men’s Service League buys new shopping carts to help clients get kitchen goods into their cars. This chapter adds bonus contributions to the cart. With the help of Del Frisco in Southlake, the group bought food at a cost to fill a new shopping cart.
“They know we are taking the train,” said Shockley. “They didn’t know we would fill it with food.”
They filled the cart with fast food, staples and hard-to-find items, such as toilet paper. The $ 3,000 YMSL spent on donations has been allocated for group annual meals. COVID-19 makes them shift.
“Because of the coronavirus, we have to help this organization,” said Shockely’s 14-year-old son, Augustus. “I learned to be more grateful for what I have.”
“We hope this teaches them that it is their responsibility as people who live blessed lives, frankly, to help those in need around us in our community,” Shockly said. “In order for our boys to realize, hey, there is a greater need for things that we can do that aren’t all about me.”
“There is always a way to help people,” Augustus said. “No matter what.”
A video that is said to show a massive party in Chicago
The West side has provoked a strong reaction from Governor J.B. Pritzker, the
denounced party goers for endangering everyone around them.
During the Coronavirus daily press conference on Sunday, Pritzker
criticize the people seen in the video, who are stuck together
room of a house in what the governor calls a violation of the state of “living in the house”
“By standing together, not socially distancing and not wearing
mask, you really put everyone around you in danger, “said Pritzker.” They are
puts you in danger, and, very importantly, everyone puts it
their family and friends who are not there with them are in danger. ”
Video, posted by Facebook user Tink Purcell, showing hundreds of people at the party (warning: the video contains graphic language and has not been edited), and has been shared more than 60,000 times and has been viewed more than 1.3 million times.
While the time and place where the video was taken has not
has been independently verified, Pritzker said such meetings were dangerous, therefore
makes it easy to spread coronavirus at close range.
“First, you have no symptoms, but you are a carrier,”
Pritzker said. “And you might feel fine, and you will go home, but you still are
maybe giving it to people in your home. They will see your friends, you will feel
Alright, and then you will give it to more of your friends. And then, you are a
COVID-19 spreader. ”
Chicago police say they are investigating this issue, but have already
can’t confirm video details.
The authorities in Chicago have published a large quote
groups that have gathered during the order stay at home, and while Pritzker
said that was not what he wanted to finally happen, he had empowered the police
do if they have no other choice.
“We have asked the police and other law enforcement to remind
people when they see they don’t follow the social distance norm they need
to do those things, “Pritzker said. “If you enter the community
danger (at a party), it must be destroyed. ”
Three COVID-19 related deaths were reported Thursday in a nursing home in East Bay, making Alameda District one of the largest groups for coronavirus outbreaks in the Bay Area.
Excell Health Care Center on High Street in Oakland
confirmed that 36 people tested positive for COVID-19 and three patients died
“High Street has many treatment facilities in this East Oakland neighborhood and that makes it close to home,” said resident Nenna Joiner.
“We told the public health department that this would happen,” said Pat McGinnis, executive director of California Advocacy for Nursing Home Reform. “This is one of the better facilities, five-star facilities, imagine what happens at some other facility.”
The Excell Health Care Center joins the list of other nursing homes
here in Alameda District where coronavirus complications have caused death.
At least 13 people died at Gateway Rehabilitation
and Care Centers in Hayward and nationally, the numbers are bleak.
So far, there have been 9,000 deaths in more than 4,500
“The reason for this is of course they are not ready, they are
under staff, they don’t have staff training, “McGinnis said.
He added that it was the kind of thing that needed to be changed to stop the spread of the corona virus in nursing homes nationally.
