Exercise To Build Immunity

Believe it or not, but regular exercise doesn’t just strengthen your muscles — it builds up your immunity. Here’s how you can stay fit, boost your mood and support your immune system while staying home:

Social Distancing

No doubt you’ve heard a lot about “social distancing” as a way to curb the spread of the coronavirus. But what does that actually look like? How much space do you need? The length of a car? A couch? Two cats side by side?

Tax Deadline Postponed

Please note after yesterday’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announcement, California is postponing tax deadlines until JULY 15, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This update SUPERSEDES the California Franchise Tax Board’s (FTB’s) previous announcement that extended the due dates for filing and payment of taxes until June 15, 2020.
To align with the IRS special tax relief, I have authorized FTB to postpone until July 15, the deadline to file and pay taxes owed for all* individuals and business entities for:
  • 2019 tax returns
  • 2019 tax return payments
  • 2020 first and second quarter estimate payments
  • 2020 LLC taxes and fees
  • 2020 non-wage withholding payments
(* The IRS special tax relief extends the deadline to July 15, 2020, for payments due of up to $10 million for corporations and up to $1 million for individuals — regardless of filing status — and other unincorporated entities. The FTB special tax relief does not include these limitations.)
The COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting life for people and businesses statewide. Hopefully, this small measure of relief will help allow people to focus on the health and safety of themselves and their family’s during these challenging times.

Thank you for your actions to help with curbing the spread of COVID-19. Together, we are #californiastrong.

How much toilet paper do you really need?

But is it necessary and how does it affect everybody else?

Check out this video to learn about the U.S. toilet paper supply chain, how production is ramping up to satisfy the increased demand, and how much of it you actually need.
