Mayor Kevin Faulconer joined Midday Edition to discuss the city’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic including the partial reopening of local beaches and city budget woes. Also, this weekend a man was spotted wearing a Klan-style hood inside a Santee grocery store, raising concerns from public officials as well as residents. The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the incident. Plus, email records show county officials knew about mental health lapses at a hotel the county is using to shelter homeless people experiencing coronavirus symptoms. And, too much time together could cause friction between couples in quarantine and there’s a nonprofit that’s trying to help.
