San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer on being removed from COVID-19 monitoring list

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer announced Tuesday that the city would begin allowing gyms, fitness businesses and places of worship to operate in city parks beginning Monday.

“There is no city better than San Diego to take advantage of the fact that COVID-19 has a harder time spreading outdoors. Using parks as part of our pandemic relief response will help the mental health and physical health of thousands of San Diegans,” Faulconer said.

Faulconer joined Good Morning San Diego to discuss COVID-19, energy, and SDSU West campus.
