Satellite cities undecided about following Jakarta with strict virus curbs

first_imgLeaders of Jakarta’s satellite cities are still undecided on whether they should follow the capital city in reimposing stricter COVID-19 restrictions that will take effect on Monday.During a virtual meeting with Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan and other regional leaders, Bekasi Deputy Mayor Tri Adhianto said his administration would announce its decision on the matter on Monday.”We’ll decide on Monday after a meeting with relevant agencies. [In the meantime], we’ll continue to monitor the [COVID-19 outbreak] in the city,” Tri said on Thursday. He acknowledged that Bekasi had seen an increase in COVID-19 cases over the past few weeks that had put a strain on the city’s healthcare system.”We only have 180 [hospital] beds left, but we’ve prepared 55 additional beds in the Chandrabaga Stadium,” Tri said as quoted by kompas.com, “If we continue to see 40 new cases a day, in the next week we’ll have 280 more patients, our hospitals could only accommodate 180.”Meanwhile, Bogor Mayor Bima Arya Sugianto said the city would continue to enforce the current micro and community-based social restrictions (PSBMK) for the next three days while awaiting coordination among the Jakarta administration and the central government about the upcoming large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) in the capital.”As of now, we are not able to decide whether to impose stricter PSBB. We’ll discuss this with the Regional Leadership Communication Forum [Forkopimda] on Monday,” Bima said after Thursday’s meeting. Read also: Jakarta lockdown aimed at preventing collapse of healthcare system”Governor [Anies] said he still needed to work out more detailed and clearer measures for the PSBB policy with the central government, so we’ll wait for that,” he added.Anies announced on Wednesday that Jakarta would reimpose the full PSBB measures starting Monday after months of a gradual relaxation of curbs since early June that has been blamed for the city’s soaring COVID-19 case number in the past few weeks.Under the reinstated PSBB — which Anies dubbed the “emergency brake” — Jakarta allows only 11 essential sectors to operate, while other businesses and offices will have to reimplement work-from-home policies. Public activities are generally banned.The isolation and intensive care unit (ICU) bed occupancy rates at the capital city reached 77 percent and 83 percent, respectively, on Wednesday. The city currently has 4,053 beds in isolation rooms and 528 beds in ICU rooms.The number of confirmed COVID-19 infections in Jakarta reached 51,287 as of Friday, with 11,696 active cases and 1,365 fatalities.Health and transportation experts, however, have noted that reimposing the PSBB in Jakarta would be pointless unless such restrictions were properly implemented also in other areas, given that mobility across regions remains high.According to official estimates, 200,000 Bogor residents travel to and from Jakarta daily using commuter lines. Meanwhile, more than 20,000 vehicles from Bogor pass through the Jagorawi toll road to go to the capital and home again every day. Around 700,000 residents of Tangerang municipality also commute to and from Jakarta every day,Meanwhile, South Tangerang Mayor Airin Rachmi Diany said the city would not follow in Jakarta’s footsteps for the time being.Read also: What you need to know about large-scale social restrictions in Jakarta”We have no plan for imposing stricter PSBB so far. We’re still following the Banten gubernatorial regulation on the Greater Tangerang PSBB [policy],” Airin said.She also claimed that the COVID-19 case number in Tangerang was still under control and that the city’s health facilities could still accommodate patients.”We previously had a plan to impose stricter measures as bed occupancy rates kept increasing and [hospitals] were overloaded. We had discussed whether it was necessary to set up a curfew, but the case number declined a few days later,” she said.Similarly, Depok COVID-19 task force spokesperson Dadang Wihana said the city would still follow the West Java gubernatorial regulation on proportional PSBB and Depok mayoral regulation until Sept. 29.”We’ll impose policies in accordance with Depok Mayoral Regulation No 59/2020 by restricting residential and business activities,” Dadang said.The city has recorded the highest number of COVID-19 patients in West Java with 2,613 confirmed cases and 723 active cases.  Dadang went on to say that the Depok administration would await the result of further coordination between Anies and the central government on the mechanism of the full PSBB. “We’ll wait and see,” he said.

Administración Wolf: La tercera orden permanente sobre la naloxona permite obtenerla por correo

first_imgAdministración Wolf: La tercera orden permanente sobre la naloxona permite obtenerla por correo August 18, 2020 Healthcare,  Press Release,  Public Health En el día de la fecha, la Administración Wolf anunció que la Secretaria de Salud, Dra. Rachel Levine, firmó una orden permanente actualizada sobre la naloxona que permite que las organizaciones comunitarias la proporcionen por correo.“La naloxona es un medicamento que salva vidas ya que puede revertir los efectos de una sobredosis de opioides”, dijo la Secretaria de Salud, Dra. Rachel Levine. “Desde 2018, hemos proporcionado kits de naloxona gratuitos mediante eventos públicos a más de 10,000 residentes de Pennsylvania, y los socorristas de primera línea han ayudado aún más a llevar la naloxona a la comunidad. Sin embargo, sabemos que hay dificultades para llevar la naloxona a las personas que la necesitan, especialmente durante una pandemia mundial, y esta orden permanente funcionará para ayudar con ello. Es importante que las personas sepan que el tratamiento funciona y que la recuperación es posible”.En 2016, la Dra. Levine emitió una orden permanente para que cualquier habitante de Pennsylvania obtenga naloxona en una farmacia para quien pueda necesitarla. La orden permanente puede ser utilizada por quienes corren el riesgo de sufrir una sobredosis relacionada con opioides, o sus familiares, amigos u otra persona que esté en condiciones de ayudar a una persona en riesgo de sufrir una sobredosis relacionada con opioides. Esta orden permanente actualizada permite que las organizaciones comunitarias obtengan naloxona y la proporcionen ya sea en persona o por correo.“Un componente clave para disminuir el número de muertes por sobredosis en Pennsylvania es la presencia de la naloxona en las comunidades y los lugares públicos”, dijo Smith, secretario del DDAP. “Cuando se trata de una epidemia como la crisis de los opioides, los medicamentos que salvan vidas deben estar en cada botiquín de primeros auxilios y se debe poder acceder a ellos fácilmente. Alentamos a todas las personas –propietarios de negocios, miembros del público en general, seres queridos que se ven afectados por el trastorno por consumo de sustancias tóxicas y personas que padecen la enfermedad– a que se preparen para responder en caso de emergencia”.Además de esta orden permanente, la naloxona se consigue en la mayoría de las farmacias de todo el estado durante todo el año. La naloxona está disponible en las farmacias para muchas personas que tienen seguro público y privado, ya sea sin cargo o a bajo costo. Además, la naloxona también se ha puesto a disposición a través de las Entidades Coordinadoras Centralizadas de la Comisión de Delito y Delincuencia de Pennsylvania, se ha donado de manera gratuita a los centros médicos de Pennsylvania, se han realizado asociaciones con colegios y universidades de Pennsylvania y se ha distribuido a proveedores de tratamiento de narcóticos en todo el estado.El Centro de Comando de Opioides, establecido en enero de 2018 cuando el Gobernador Wolf firmó la primera declaración de desastre por consumo de opioides, se reúne todas las semanas para analizar la crisis relativa a los opioides. El centro de comando cuenta con personal de 17 agencias estatales y de la Oficina del Fiscal General y está bajo el mando de los departamentos de Salud y Programas de Drogas y Alcohol. El centro de comando recientemente presentó un plan estratégico que destaca los logros hasta la fecha y proporciona una hoja de ruta para trabajar de manera constante para ayudar a las personas con trastorno por consumo de sustancias tóxicas.“La crisis de los opioides no discrimina. Sabemos que ha afectado a todos independientemente de su ubicación, clase socioeconómica, género, raza o etnia”, dijo Ray Barishansky, Subsecretario de Preparación para la Salud y Protección Comunitaria y Comandante de Incidentes de la Crisis de Opioides. “El Centro de Comando de Opioides mantiene su compromiso de asistir de todas las maneras posibles a los habitantes de Pennsylvania que se ven afectados por esta crisis. Creemos que poner la naloxona en manos del público es otra oportunidad para ayudarlos. Dado que la COVID-19 continúa planteando nuevas preocupaciones sobre los opioides en muchas partes del estado, estamos trabajando incansablemente para garantizar que tenemos la capacidad de ayudar a quienes lo necesitan”.Los datos muestran que en 2019 murieron más de 4,300 personas por sobredosis de drogas. Esto representa una disminución de casi el 19% en las muertes por sobredosis de drogas desde 2017.El trabajo para abordar la crisis de los opioides se centra en tres áreas: prevención, rescate y tratamiento. Los esfuerzos realizados durante los últimos años junto con organismos estatales, funcionarios locales, regionales y federales han dado lugar a medidas importantes para abordar la crisis de opioides:El Programa de Monitoreo de Medicamentos bajo Receta ha reducido las recetas de opioides en un 34% y prácticamente ha eliminado el peregrinaje de un médico a otro para obtener recetas (“doctor shopping”).El número de personas que reciben altas dosis de opioides (definidas como equivalentes a más de 90 miligramos de morfina por día) ha caído un 53% desde que se lanzó el PDMP en agosto de 2016.El Panel de datos de opioides y el Panel de datos 2.0 han aportado datos de cara al público sobre la prevención, el rescate y el tratamiento.Los 11 programas de tratamiento asistido por medicamentos (PacMAT) coordinados por Pennsylvania están sirviendo como parte de un modelo de conexiones para brindar tratamiento basado en la evidencia a las personas allí donde viven, con poco menos de $26 millones de dólares dedicados a los centros.Más de 45 Centros de Excelencia, administrados por el Departamento de Servicios Humanos, brindan tratamiento coordinado y basado en evidencia a personas con un trastorno por uso de opioides cubierto por Medicaid. Los COE han tratado a más de 32,500 personas desde su primera presentación en 2016.La exención de las tarifas del certificado de nacimiento para las personas con trastorno por consumo de opioides ha ayudado a cerca de 4,800 personas, permitiendo un ingreso más simple a los programas de recuperación.Una orden permanente firmada por la Dra. Rachel Levine en 2018 permitió que el Servicio de emergencias médicas dejara atrás más de 2,400 dosis de naloxona.Se proporcionó información a más de 6,600 profesionales que recetan medicamentos a través de la capacitación en Internet o presencial.Las 882 cajas para desechar medicamentos ayudan a los residentes de Pennsylvania a desechar correctamente los medicamentos no deseados, que incluyeron 178,540 libras de medicamentos no deseados en 2019.La línea directa Get Help Now recibió cerca de 38,700 llamadas y casi la mitad de las personas que llamaron se conectaron directamente con un proveedor de tratamiento.El sistema penitenciario estatal ha ampliado su programa de tratamiento asistido por medicamentos (MAT, por sus siglas en inglés), que se considera un programa modelo para otros estados.Un proyecto piloto de escáner corporal tuvo éxito en reducir las sobredosis y los delitos violentos en varias instituciones. Hay escáneres corporales ubicados en más de 30 sitios y actualmente se están colocando en centros adicionales.Varios organismos han trabajado juntos para colaborar en la incautación y la destrucción de opioides ilícitos en Pennsylvania.En las escuelas se ha proporcionado educación y capacitación sobre opioides. Existen planes futuros para hacer de la educación sobre opioides un componente estándar de la capacitación en las escuelas.La coordinación con siete grandes proveedores comerciales ha ampliado el acceso a la naloxona y a la atención de la salud mental al tiempo que se trabaja para lograr que sea más económica.La naloxona se ofrece a los socorristas de primera línea a través de la Comisión sobre Delito y Delincuencia, que cuenta con más de 63,400 kits disponibles y aproximadamente 12,700 guardados a través de ese programa. Más de la mitad de esos kits, 6,633, se guardaron en 2019.El Servicio de emergencias médicas ha administrado más de 40,600 dosis de naloxona y más de 10,000 dosis se pusieron a disposición del público durante la distribución estatal de naloxona el año pasado.Para obtener más información sobre la respuesta de Pennsylvania a la crisis de opioides, visite www.pa.gov/opioids.View this information in English.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

The Herron Todd White Month in Review Report for August has both the Townsville house and unit markets at the “start of recovery”.“The resilience of the Townsville residential market post COVID-19 continues to astound us with increasing sentiment and a noticeable increase in vacant land sales and new home construction following the $25,000 Homebuilder grant,” the report said. “The investor market for house flippers continues to see good activity, particularly in established suburbs such as Railway Estate, Currajong and Gulliver. “The entry level price for this type of investment is in the low $200,000s range.” This house at 1 Quandong St, Currajong is for sale for $349,000The report also pointed to reports from local agents of an increase in inquiries from trad­itional investors from interstate, and of buyers’ agents representing buyers from out of town becoming more active in the market. Further, the report said the number of properties advertised for rent on real­estate.com.au within the greater Townsville region had reduced considerably, from about 850 in mid-April to about 450 in mid-July. The Real Estate Institute of Queensland this week revealed the Townsville rental vac­ancy rate had shrunk to its lowest on record, tightening to just 1.7 per cent. That’s down from 2.9 per cent in March, and the record high of 7.1 per cent in September 2016. “Overall there are many suburbs throughout Townsville with solid yield investing options available, particularly if not seeking short to medium term capital growth,” the report said. “As yields vary based on demand and supply in the rental market, it is important when buying an investment property to consider property that will appeal to a wide range of ­potential renters.” This unit at 4/100 The Esplanade is listed for $399,950. SuppliedThe latest REA Market Trends report for August shows Charters Towers has the highest indicative rental yield in the region, with a whopping 13.2 per cent return. Its rental vacancy rate has shrunk from 5 per cent in the March quarter to just 1.5 per cent in the June quarter.In Townsville, Garbutt units are reaping the highest rental yields, with 11.31 per cent, while for houses, the top suburb is Rasmussen, with 7.92 per cent. Michele Hyde of RE/MAX Excellence is marketing a three-bedroom unit in Belgian Gardens, one of the top performing suburbs for rental yields, for $399,950. Ms Hyde said the local unit market, and Townsville as a whole, was showing some positive signs of recovery.“Land sales have taken off,” she said. “We had a few blocks that were sitting for a while and now people are really taking advantage of the government funding (to build a new home),” she said. “A lot of people are now finding it is cheaper to buy than rent.” TOP 10 SUBURBS FOR RENTAL YIELDS (units) Garbutt 11.31%Hermit Park 10.4%Idalia 9.84%Rosslea 9.06%Pimlico 8.19%Douglas 8.03%Belgian Gardens 7.98%Kirwan 6.71%More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020West End 6.44%South Townsville 6.12% TOP 10 SUBURBS FOR RENTAL YIELDS (houses)last_img read more

Heavy 257-run defeat leaves Windies with another whitewash

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica, (CMC) – A sudden post-lunch collapse sent embattled West Indies to a crushing 257-run defeat to India inside four days of the second Test here Monday, leaving them with another series whitewash and without a single Test victory over the Asian side in nearly two decades.Resuming the day at Sabina Park on 45 for two requiring a miracle to overhaul their mammoth target of 468, West Indies folded meekly in their second innings for 210, about half-hour before tea.Shamarh Brooks, in his second Test, top-scored with exactly 50 while captain Jason Holder got 39 and Jermaine Blackwood – the Windies’ first-ever ‘concussion-sub’ stroked 38, but India’s varied attack proved clinical especially in the second session to bring a swift end to the contest with a day to spare.Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja (3-58) and seamer Mohammed Shami (3-65) claimed three wickets apiece while pacer Ishant Sharma picked up two for 37.West Indies appeared to be making a fight of it when Brooks and Blackwood, playing positively against the Indian attack, took the home side to lunch on 145 for four.But once Blackwood perished about 35 minutes after the resumption, West Indies fell apart at the seams, losing their last six wickets for just 65 runs in quick time.The defeat meant yet another clean sweep for West Indies, after they suffered a chastening 318-run defeat also inside four days in Antigua a week-and-a-half ago, and they now have not beaten India in a Test in 17 years.“I’m obviously disappointed. We haven’t been able to play complete cricket game in either of the last two Test matches,” skipper Jason Holder said afterwards. “There are still a lot of problems with the batting. We need to be able to put some scores on the board and fight through tough periods.”West Indies suffered an early setback in the morning’s fourth over when Darren Bravo (23), resuming the day on 18, complained of feeling unwell only moments after caressing seamer Jasprit Bumrah to the cover boundary, and left the field never to return.The left-hander had suffered a blow to the helmet from a short ball from Bumrah in the final over of Sunday’s third day, but batted out the over.He underwent the required ICC concussion protocols on Sunday evening and Monday morning, but was cleared to resume batting.Once leaving the field on Monday, he was checked by medical staff and once again checked for concussion, and the decision was taken to have him replaced by Blackwood under the new ICC rules.Brooks, unbeaten on four at the start, then found an ally in Roston Chase (12) to stretch the third wicket stand to 60 and leave India without success in the first hour.In the second over after the drinks break, however, Chase played down the wrong line to Jadeja and was lbw at 97 for three and six balls later with just one run added, left-hander Shimron Hetmyer loosely drove Ishant to Mayank Agarwal at cover.Blackwood arrived and was quickly into his stride, and he and Brooks put on a crucial 61 for the fifth wicket which took the Windies to the first interval without further loss.Brooks, who was caught at first slip off a Jadeja no-ball on 30 in the fifth over before lunch, faced 119 balls in just over 3-¼ hours at the crease and struck nine fours while Blackwood faced 72 ball and crunched four fours and a six – a clean hit over long on off Jadeja.With his scoring dried up after the interval, Blackwood added just two to his lunch time 36 before eventually gifting his wicket, flirting with a wide one from Bumrah and edging behind at 159 for five.Brooks, on 39 at lunch, completed his maiden Test fifty before becoming the second wicket to fall after the interval, run out by Virat Kohli’s direct hit from cover.Debutant Jahmar Hamilton (0) succumbed two balls later in the same over to a catch at slip with no addition to the total at 177 for seven and the other debutant Rahkeem Cornwall perished for one in the next over, caught behind off Shami, leaving Windies on the brink.Kemar Roach also nicked Shami behind for five and Holder, after hitting nine fours in a breezy 35-ball knock, missed a heave at Jadeja and was bowled to be last out.West Indies failed to win a single match on tour, suffering a 3-0 clean sweep in the Twenty20 series and a 2-0 loss in the three-match one-day series.INDIA 1st Innings 416West Indies 1st Innings 117India 2nd Innings 168-4 decl.West Indies 2nd Innings (target: 468 runs)(overnight 45 for two)J Campbell c Kohli b Mohammed Shami 16K Brathwaite c wkp Pant b Ishant Sharma 3D Bravo ret. hurt 23S Brooks run out 50R Chase lbw b Jadeja 12S Hetmyer c Agarwal b Ishant Sharma 1J Blackwood c wkp Pant b Bumrah 38*J Holder b Jadeja 39+J Hamilton c Rahul b Jadeja 0R Cornwall c wkp Pant b Mohammed Shami 1K Roach c wkp Pant b Mohammed Shami 5S Gabriel not out 0Extras (b14, lb2, w5, nb1) 22TOTAL (all out, 59.5 overs) 210Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Brathwaite), 2-37 (Campbell), 3-97 (Chase), 4-98 (Hetmyer), 5-159 (Blackwood), 6-177 (Brooks), 7-177 (Hamilton), 8-180 (Cornwall), 9-206 (Roach), 10-210 (Holder)Bowling: Ishant 12-3-37-2, Bumrah 11-4-31-1, Shami 16-2-65-3, Jadeja 19.5-4-58-3, Vihari 1-0-3-0.Man-of-the-Match: Hanuma Vihari.N.B – Jermaine Blackwood replaced Darren Bravo as concussion-sub in second innings.last_img read more

Ron Patterson’s father explains guard’s transfer to IUPUI, names other schools interested

first_img Published on April 5, 2015 at 3:06 pm Contact Jacob: jmklinge@syr.edu | @Jacob_Klinger_ Ron Patterson’s next college basketball game will be in an Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis uniform. If it’s a home game, it will be in the same city as his son, Ron Patterson Jr., and closer to the rest of his family.It’s partly why the transfer that Patterson announced on March 19 ended up in Indianapolis, Patterson’s father Marc said.“Closer to family, having them come to the games, having his son come to the games and see him play,” Marc Patterson said. “Just to have your circle around you while you’re in college.”A bond with IUPUI’s head coach and fellow Indiana native Jason Gardner, the fact that the school was one of the first to contact him after his transfer and his late high school teammate Steven Jamison committed to IUPUI before dying of cancer also factored in, Marc Patterson said. Patterson can apply for a hardship waiver — on the grounds of needing to be closer to home — to be eligible to play next season, his father said.Patterson was also recruited for transfer by Kent State, Ball State, Georgia State, Illinois State, Houston and, especially, Eastern Michigan — where former SU assistant coach Rob Murphy is the head coach. Butler also spoke with the former Orange guard, but Marc Patterson said he wasn’t sure how serious those conversations were.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAll of those schools were too far from home though, Marc Patterson said, and his son related well to Gardner.“They just had a good bond, kind of understand each other, both guards,” he said. “He just had a good feel for him and pulled the trigger.”After playing sparingly as a freshman, Patterson averaged 2.6 points, 1.7 assists and 0.9 rebounds in 13.9 minutes per game as a sophomore. He was banned by head coach Jim Boeheim from shooting 3s partway through conference play, as he shot 17.3 percent from beyond the arc.He is the second SU player to announce his transfer this year, after classmate and close friend B.J. Johnson departed for La Salle. Freshman forward Chris McCullough is also leaving, having declared for the NBA Draft.Correction: In the original version of this story, Steven Jamison’s status as a student at IUPUI was misstated. He committed to IUPUI before he died. The Daily Orange regrets this error. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Former students launch University-wide dating app

first_img“The problem [Dandy] is solving is the significant time and effort required to actually meet up, where it takes weeks on conventional dating apps to meet up,” Massachi said. “On ours, it takes days. It’s a much more enjoyable, efficient process that actually works.” “Right now, we’re targeting college students because they’re the most socially charged,” Rassi said. “They live super close to one another, and they’re open to new experiences, which all align with our brand values. We have plans in the future to open it up to the public.” The Dandy team comprises Massachi, co-founder Daniel Newman, head of marketing Kaitlyn Rassi, two non-USC engineers and creative director Caroline Moore, a senior majoring in computer science and business administration. Both co-founders would be current seniors in the Marshall School of Business, but they left the University this year to pursue Dandy full-time. “As a bisexual woman, I would definitely never use an app that would only match me to men because I’m not only looking for men,” Holzer said. “The intentions of the app creators probably weren’t to be homophobic, but by not allowing same-sex matches to occur, it’s outright discriminatory.” Rachel Holzer, a freshman majoring in political science and international relations, identifies as bisexual and said she would not use an app that doesn’t allow people who identify as queer to participate. Users can only access Dandy when they are notified that the app is going live. Each user is then randomly paired with another student who attends the same university. When the individual’s photo pops up on their screen, the user gets five seconds to like the person. Rassi said the app is currently targeting local communities and is catered toward college students — but not all of them. Currently, Dandy’s pairing algorithm does not take into account those in the LGBTQ+ community;  the app assumes users are straight and doesn’t allow them to change their sexual preferences. “We’re starting only with straight users at this time and the simple reason is [cash flow],” Newman said. “Given that we’re launching in a hyperlocal market, we won’t be able to open up Dandy to more communities until we have a much larger user base that can actually have self-sustaining live sessions for other people.” According to Newman, the app was not modeled after popular dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, which offer a more passive online dating experience. He said Dandy is more engaging for students because it is only open during certain timeframes. center_img Inspired by a previous on-demand restaurant service app he designed, Leor Massachi, one of the co-founders of Dandy, wanted to find a way for dating app users to connect in real life faster than they would traditional dating apps.

It’s not a replacement to real life like many other apps.” “Our slogan for the launch is ‘Go Out Tonight,’ just really encouraging people to get out there, try new experiences, meet new people, get out into the real world and off your phone,” Rassi said. “If you both like each other, you go onto a three-minute chat, where you get to talk back and forth and see if you have any similarities,” Newman said. “If you connect after that, you can choose to exchange numbers and go straight to iMessage to meet up in the real world.” Newman said the university-only approach eliminates the need for filtering options like age, distance and sexual orientation.last_img read more

Dodgers shut down training complex in Arizona

first_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies The Dodgers have shut down their training complex in Arizona in response to the suggested precautions aimed at containing the coronavirus pandemic.Organized workouts at the complex were shut down a week ago when Major League Baseball suspended spring training and postponed the start of the 2020 regular season. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed the complete shutdown of the facility during a radio interview on Friday.Dodgers officials said the shutdown will last at least two weeks, at which point the team will re-assess the situation. A number of MLB teams have done the same.“You’re trying to be responsible and keep guys going that want to keep working and get treatment,” Roberts said on “The Dan Patrick Show”. “But I think ultimately you’ve got to be responsible and shutting down Camelback Ranch. … Taking care of the staff is the most important thing.” “Ideally, everyone wanted to get in that 162 (games) … or whatever that number,” Roberts said. “But as every day goes on, the more we learn, it’s seeming more unlikely. But I’m still holding out hope.”Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Roberts said he has been in contact with his players on a regular basis since the sport shut down last week.“Every day it’s a different group of players just to kind of catch up by way of text or call,” he said.Roberts said he is “trusting the fact that they’re going to do whatever they can to stay in shape, keep their arms in shape, their bodies in shape.”“We don’t know when this potential start date, if any, is going to happen. But I still can count on our guys,” he said.Roberts said he is still optimistic there will be a 2020 season of reasonable length, though he suspects there will have to be numerous “amendments” to scheduling and roster limits. He estimates a “two-, three-week ramp up” before games can begin “then some latitude for the roster size” to accommodate pitchers who won’t be fully stretched out.
