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

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – 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.

San Diego County has officially been removed from the state’s COVID-19 monitoring list, setting in motion a 14-day countdown that could see K-12 students back in the classroom as soon as Sept. 1, depending on the guidance of individual school districts.

San Diego State University officially broke ground Monday on its Mission Valley campus Monday, four days after closing escrow on the 132-acre property which currently houses the San Diego Community Credit Union Stadium.

“What happens on the ground right here, beneath our feet will elevate San Diego State and elevate San Diego in ways that we can’t possibly imagine,” said San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer. “San Diegans should take great satisfaction in knowing that the future of this land is finally set as a place where education, athletics, and the community will thrive side by side for generations to come.
