Herndon Yoga Studio Slowly Adds New Classes Following Coronavirus

HERNDON, VA — Like many other small businesses in the Herndon community, The Health Advantage Yoga Center was hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

Susan Van Nuys, who has owned and operated the yoga studio at 1041 Sterling Road in Herndon since 2001, told Patch back in April her core business was walk-in traffic. That pretty much stopped when Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam ordered all non-essential businesses to close in March.

Just like other business owners, though, Van Nuys found a way to adapt and has managed to keep her business afloat through the state’s closure and the early stages of its phased reopening. Now that the state is in phase three, gyms and fitness centers can operate at 75 percent capacity, and recreational sports will have continued physical distancing requirements.

Van Nuys recently answered a few questions about how well her business has weathered the pandemic and the first

Hoboken Adds Signs To Playgrounds: ‘No Mask, No Entry’

HOBOKEN, NJ — Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in an update on Wednesday night that the city’s Health Department had reported three new coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours, for a total of 622 since the pandemic began. Fatalities in town have remained unchanged for the last six weeks, at 29.

Bhalla noted that on Wednesday, Gov. Phil Murphy ordered residents to wear face masks outdoors in public places where they can’t social distance, such as crowded sidewalks and waiting in line at restaurants. Masks have already been mandated for inside stores and other areas.

There are exceptions outside, Bhalla said, including “exercise outdoors while remaining socially distant,” kids under 2, and children getting wet in sprinklers.

Spain adds backlog of over 1,000 virus deaths

MADRID — Spain is adding more than 1,000 more fatalities to its coronavirus death toll in the first update in nearly two weeks after officials revised a backlog of inconsistent data.

At least 28,313 people have died through Friday with a COVID-19 diagnosis, health officials. Authorities had stopped updating the tally at 27,136 on June 7.

The country has also confirmed more than 244,000 infections since the beginning of the outbreak, although an official immunization survey estimates that 5% of its 47 million inhabitants are presumed as having contracted the virus.

Spain’s health minister says that 34 clusters have been detected in the past six weeks, since Spain began to relax its confinement rules. The new clusters have infected around 1,000 people in slaughterhouses, nursing homes, hospitals, as well as among migrant workers and party-goers.
