City Manager's Update | COVID-19 Update | June 24, 2020

Post Date:06/24/2020 9:20 AM

Hello Monrovians, 

On June 22, Governor Newsom held a press conference with updates on COVID-19.

During the press conference, the Governor shared how COVID-19 is spread through droplets, and even if a person is not showing symptoms, the virus could spread unknowingly. Exhaling can make droplets go as far as four feet, droplets from coughs can go as far as six feet, and droplets from sneezes as far as 26 feet.

Spread Through Droplets

COVID-19 is still easily transmitted among people in contact with each other. The best protection continues to be to wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands, self-isolate if you are sick, practice physical distancing, and wear a clean face covering when in contact with others from outside your household.

Route 66 Women: The Untold Story of the Mother Road 

Internationally, Route 66 is viewed as an expression of something uniquely American - a blend of freedom, the open road and adventure. Signs for the highway can be found all over Europe and Asia, and the myth of Route 66 draws 100s of 1000s of people to make their own journey every year. However, the actual experience of traveling and living along the Mother Road has always been greatly impacted by race and gender. From the Spicer family traveling on Route 66 from California back to the South to the Sakatani family during WWII, and the women who played a seminal role at the Southwest Museum (Los Angeles’ first museum) Route 66 has been a mirror that reflects National tendencies towards progress and regression, towards equality and hate. 

Looking at history through local women’s lives is a unique approach to understanding some of the most significant events of the 20th century. Panel begins at 11:00 a.m. Please RSVP to take part in a discussion with filmmaker Katrina Parks and distinguished panelists: archivist Marva Felchlin, historian Susie Ling, 3rd generation Monrovia resident Keiko Sakatani, council-member Larry Spicer and author Candacy Taylor. 

This event and the films featured in it are made possible with support from The National Trust for Historic Preservation, the NPS' Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program, California Humanities and Cinefemme.
