Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order this week, that extends local governments’ abilities to halt evictions for renters impacted by the pandemic. Although it means that renters won’t need to pay rent during the pandemic (if they are out of work because of it), however, they will still have to pay their rent later down the line, after the pandemic ends. The new order lasts through September 30th.

Although the Santa Cruz Metro had planned to increase the number of riders on Metro buses starting next week, they have changed that plan in-part because of the continued increase in the number of Covid-19 cases. The Bus Drivers Union, and the Bus Riders Union have also challenged the increase, and so it has been paused for now. A judge is expected to make a ruling on what capacity of ridership is allowed on each length of bus in the Santa Cruz Metro Fleet.
Facial coverings will be enforced and although beaches will be closed in the city of Monterey, ocean activities will still be allowed. That announcement was made shortly after Governor Gavin Newsom said that parking will be closed at all state beaches. The city plans to enforce the mandatory wearing of facial coverings both inside and outside in business districts....and fines of 100 dollars could be issued for a first violation.
An 18 year-old has been arrested in connection with a June 18th shooting. Jibril Abdi was taken into custody late Tuesday night....during the shelter-in-place that was put in place briefly in Watsonville. Abdi is accused of firing several shots at a Watsonville man who was sitting in vehicle on Rio Del Pajaro Court during a botched robbery attempt. Abdi was booked into Santa Cruz County Jail, and his bail was set at $675,000.
This Friday, an event has been planned that is scheduled to bring several groups together. The Black Lives Matter group, and a Latino group. The East Side & Seaside Solidarity March will see one group set out at 10 a.m. from the Foods Co. parking lot in East Salinas, walking (or skating/biking/driving) to the new Salinas Police Department and then the District Attorney’s Office, before setting out for the soccer field at CSU Monterey Bay. Some of the demonstrators plan on walking, biking or roller skating the entire 13 miles from Salinas, but organizers are providing transportation for those who can’t make that journey on their own power. In Seaside, another group will set out at 1 p.m. from Greater Victory Temple, with a plan to arrive at the soccer field at 3 p.m.
There, organizers plan on creating altars to those who have died at the hands of law enforcement.
