    BERLIN (Reuters) - Austria will tighten up on mask-wearing and social distancing at public events and in restaurants from Monday in response to the accelerating spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the country, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said on Friday.

    SANTA ANA (CBSLA) – All Orange County schools could receive permission to reopen campuses by late September, health officials announced Monday night. The O.C. Health Care Agency reported that it could receive permission for all K-12 schools to reopen for some form of in-person instruction by Sept. 22. On Friday, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a new four-tiered coronavirus assessment system that will determine the process by which each county can reopen businesses and schools. The entire Southland, including O.C., is currently under the worst level, purple, which measures the spread of coronavirus as “widespread.” However, County Health Officer Clayton Chau received confirmation from state health officials Monday that O.C. was on track to be downgraded from the purple tier to the red tier on Sept. 8 due to its improving coronavirus metrics. Once it moves into red, there will be a 14-day waiting period before it can reopen schools,...
    White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Monday faulted Democrats for being “late to the game” with respect to deploying law enforcement personnel to deal with violence by protesters around the country. Noting the Trump administration deployed 1,000 National Guard troops and 200 Department of Justice personnel to Kenosha, Wisconsin, McEnany said President Donald Trump “showed up, and law and order arrived.” She said 300 protesters have been arrested nationally, according to Department of Justice figures, with 302 facing charges. “Democrats are late to the game,” McEnany said. “It is incumbent on Democrats to step up. … Do not tolerate anarchy, violence, and destruction. Rioting is not right. Secure your streets.” Protests over the weekend saw one man shot and killed in Portland, Oregon. Protests also continued in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after the August 23 shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake, allegedly by Kenosha police officer Rusten Sheskey. Trump on Monday took...

    The union representing city school principals blasted the Department of Education’s plans for outdoor learning announced Monday by Mayor Bill de Blasio as too little too late. “Once again, the city and DOE have made decisions, rolled out guidance and announced a deadline far too late and haphazardly for school leaders to develop and implement a thoughtful and well-constructed plan,” Council of School Supervisors and Administrators president Mark Cannizzaro said in a statement Monday. At an earlier press conference, de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza issued a call for principals to submit outdoor learning plans by Friday if they want to use the great outdoors to help them ease their coronavirus space restrictions. But while Cannizzaro backed the concept, he argued that the city’s proposal didn’t provide heavily burdened principals enough time to formulate viable outdoor plans. “The shortsighted guidance on outdoor learning also lacks detail, raising serious...

    VIDEO1:0201:02Why the end of gold's nine-week rally could benefit the DowExecutive Edge Gold had its best day since April on Monday, but market history says it may be time to bet against the precious metal. A surprising development helped to propel gold higher: long-time gold naysayer Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway revealed a big stake in gold miner Barrick Gold. While Buffett has dismissed gold as a shiny, useless "cube" in the past, Berkshire's bet could signal that even it sees value in gold as a market and inflation hedge. But don't read too much into the 2.5% one-day gain. Stocks — in particular the Dow Jones Industrial Average — may prove to be a better bet in the short-term, according to information from hedge fund trading tool Kensho. Granted, gold is having a great year, up over 31% and on pace for its best annual rally in a decade. But when gold spiked on Monday...
    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Two inmates from the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman died during the weekend after being in and out of hospitals the past several months, the state Department of Corrections said Monday. The department said one inmate died Saturday at Merit Health Central in Jackson. His name was not immediately released Monday because the department had not yet notified his family. Joe Taylor Jr., 69, died Sunday at Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center in Clarksdale. He was serving a 15-year sentence for an aggravated DUI conviction in Montgomery County. His sentencing was Oct. 9, 2014. The department said autopsies would be done, and no foul play was suspected in either of the deaths. Taylor was at least the 63rd inmate to die in Mississippi prisons since late December. The U.S. Justice Department announced in February that it is investigating Mississippi’s prison system. Several inmates died during outbursts...

    “Glee” actor Kevin McHale said he believes his late co-star Cory Monteith helped “find” Naya Rivera — because her body was recovered on the anniversary of his death. “I’m not religious by any means, but you’d be hard-pressed to convince me that Cory didn’t help find our girl today,” McHale wrote on Twitter late Monday. Rivera’s body was pulled Monday from the waters of Lake Piru, about 56 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, exactly seven years after Monteith died of a drug overdose. Rivera portrayed Santana Lopez on the Fox series alongside McHale, who played Artie Abrams, and Monteith, who starred as Finn Hudson until his death in 2013. McHale said that the two late-co-stars “in many ways, were the male and female versions of one other.” “So nice, cared deeply, were stupidly talented, the most fun, and really really good people,” he tweeted.

    Of all the reasons Donald Trump has refused to wear a mask in public in the four-plus months since the COVID-19 pandemic began in the U.S., high on the list must be fear of ridicule. That would explain why the few times he has supposedly worn a mask off-camera, he’s bragged about how good he looks and compared himself to the Lone Ranger.  On Monday night, his worst nightmare came true. After making his first-ever public appearance in a mask at Walter Reed Hospital over the weekend, Trump was mercilessly mocked Monday night by Late Night host Seth Meyers. “Yesterday, according to The New York Times, Germany reported 159 new cases, Canada reported 243 new cases while the U.S. reported a total of 57,789 new cases,” Meyers said. “So you know, perfect timing for the president to start wearing a mask.”  “Of course he went with black,” the...

    WASHINGTON — Baseball’s two World Series finalists canceled workouts Monday because of COVID-19 testing delays that one executive worried could endanger the baseball season. The defending champion Washington Nationals and reigning American League champion Houston Astros each called off training camp practices after not receiving test results from Friday. The cancellations come amid delays around Major League Baseball, with some players opting out, and in the aftermath of Nationals reliever Sean Doolittle criticizing slow test results and a lack of some personal protective equipment. “We will not sacrifice the health and safety of our players, staff and their families,” Washington general manager Mike Rizzo said. “Without accurate and timely testing, it is simply not safe for us to continue with summer camp. “Major League Baseball needs to work quickly to resolve issues with their process and their lab. Otherwise, summer camp and the 2020 season are at...
