Ex-N.J. Gov. Chris Christie stays in hospital for 6th day with COVID-19. Murphy calls him a ‘Jersey fighter.’

As former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spends his sixth day in a hospital being treated for COVID-19, current Gov. Phil Murphy said Thursday his predecessor is “the quintessential Jersey fighter.”

Christie’s exact condition remains unknown and it’s still unclear what course of treatment he’s receiving. The 58-year-old hasn’t tweeted since Saturday, and doctors, family, and friends have not made any public announcements about how he’s doing.

But a source familiar with the situation told NJ Advance Media on Wednesday that Christie was in good spirits, getting good care, and is not on a ventilator.

Multiple sources said there were no changes as of Thursday afternoon.

Murphy, a Democrat who succeeded Republican Christie in 2018, said he “exchanged notes” with Christie on Wednesday night but has “no further insight” into his condition.

“I shot him a note, as I had done a couple of days earlier, just to say that

Back in March and April, the hospital in Cape Girardeau regularly had two or three patients with COVID-19, on any given day. Now it often has 15 to 20, Sudak said.

On Wednesday in downtown New Madrid, many pedestrians wore no masks or face coverings.

New Madrid’s Main Street ends at a pedestrian pier that juts out over the blue expanse of the Mississippi River. On Wednesday morning, one block north, Jeff Grunwald stepped out of New Madrid Historical Museum, where he serves as the administrator.

Grunwald said his behavior has changed since early July, when the county had seen less than 50 cases of COVID-19.

These days, Grunwald said, he and his wife are mostly eating carryout, rather than eating in

How 305 Fitness Founder Sadie Kurzban Is Pivoting Her Business Model Amid Covid-19 Closures

While hundreds of New York’s boutique fitness studios are still fighting to reopen, one company is resolute to remain shut through the rest of 2020.

“There’s no break even in sight,” says Sadie Kurzban, founder and CEO of 305 Fitness. “At this time, the team and I do not expect to reopen our studio locations before 2021.”

Since August 24, New York State has begun lifting restrictions to allow some gyms to operate at one-third capacity and under specific guidelines, including but not limited to requiring masks during class, upgrading HVAC systems, and allowing for 6-10 feet of social distance in class. Kurzban explains that in an average 305 studio, 10 feet of distance means reducing classes to less than 25% of a normal class size.

Santa Rosa: Hospital Workers Protest Seeking Greater Covid-19 Protective Measures

By Jeremy Hay

Bay City News Foundation

Nurses, housekeepers, X-ray technicians and other health care workers on Wednesday called on their employer, Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, to provide greater protections against COVID-19. The hospital last month experienced an outbreak of the highly infectious disease.

The workers gathered Wednesday across the street from the hospital near downtown Santa Rosa to make their case.

They said they needed adequate safety equipment such as N95 face masks; immediate testing for employees exposed to COVID-19 or show symptoms of it; and regularly scheduled testing, not just in response to an outbreak.

They also called for all incoming patients to be isolated until they get COVID-19 tests and results; and for thorough contact tracing protocols.

The rally was small – about 25 people – but the outrage was large and pointed.

County Supervisor Shirlee Zane drew on Amos 5:24, from the Old Testament, to criticize
