City Calls for Responsible 
Recreation Over Weekend 

 Heading into Labor Day 
weekend, the Pasadena Public 
Health Department urges the 
public to celebrate responsibly 
to help reduce the spread of 

 After recent holidays, 
including Memorial Day, 
Father’s Day, and the Fourth 
of July, Pasadena experienced 
significant increases in local 
laboratory confirmed cases of 
COVID-19. Contact tracers 
were able to attribute the 
majority of new cases to parties, 
get-togethers, and gatherings. 
The most impactful change 
the community can make to 
slow the spread of COVID-19 
during the upcoming holiday 
weekend is to not gather with 
people who do not live in your 

 Pasadena residents are still 
subject to statewide and local 
stay-at-home orders. Public 
health officials are reminding 
everyone about the importance 
of staying close to home and 
continuing with physical 
distancing, use face covering, 
hand washing, and disinfecting 

 “We continue to see the 
consequences of parties and 
social gatherings during our 
case interviews. The best way 
to honor the spirit of workers 
on Labor Day, especially 
essential workers, is to stay 
home and only gather with 
people in your own household,” 
says Dr. Matthew Feaster, 

 “Now that the County and 
State are seeing a reduction 
in new cases, our concern is 
people may interpret these 
reductions as a sign that the 
virus is gone,” said Dr. Ying-
Ying Goh, Health Officer 
and Director of the Public 
Health Department. “It’s never 
been more important that we 
continue to take public health 
actions like physical distancing 
and covering your face to stop 
the spread of COVID-19.”

 The public is urged to modify 
traditional Labor Day outdoor 
celebrations by wearing face 
covering and only celebrating 
with the people you live with. 
Stay close to home and stay safe 
by avoiding large gatherings 
with friends and family.

 Active recreation (walking, 
running, biking, and other 
activities) is encouraged for 
health and well-being as 
long as physical distancing is 

 Remember the three “Ws” 
when celebrating: Wash your 
hands, Wear your face coverings 
and Watch your distance.

 "Remember the three 
“Ws” when celebrating: 
Wash your hands, Wear 
your face coverings and

strict COVID-19 

 Temperatures in Pasadena 
are expected to reach over 
100 degrees this Labor 
Day weekend. Vulnerable 
populations, such as the 
elderly who do not live in 
air-conditioned homes, may 
need relief from the heat. 
To meet this need, the City 
is opening Robinson Park 
Recreation Center, located 
at 1081 N. Fair Oaks Ave., 
as an emergency cooling 
center through Monday, 
Sept. 7, 9 a.m.–6 p.m.

 The center can 
accommodate up to 50 
people, and visitors are 
required to bring a face 
covering to wear at all 
times. Staff and visitors 
will also be required to 
maintain a distance of at 
least six feet between one 
another; exceptions will be 
made for individuals living 
in the same household. The 
center will not be open for 
recreational activity.

Pasadena launches New 
Second Unit ADU Program

The City of Pasadena’s 
housing department is 
launching a new affordable 
housing initiative that 
incentivizes homeowners to 
create an affordable rental 
unit on their property. The 
Second Unit ADU program 
provides very low-cost loans 
to homeowners who want 
to create a new ADU (the 
unit will need to be leased 
out to Section 8 tenants for 
the first seven years) and 
those who want to bring an 
existing unpermitted ADU 
up to code (no Section 8 

 “New second units can 
be an important source of 
affordable housing for the 
community and can also 
provide needed income to 
homeowners. In addition, 
when existing unpermitted 
second units are made code 
compliant, they can provide 
legal and safe housing for 
the people who reside in 
them, often extended family 
members of the homeowner 
who would otherwise not 
be able to afford to live in 
Pasadena,” said William 
Huang, director of housing.

 Two informational Zoom 
webinars are scheduled for 
September 16 at noon, and 
September 17 at 5:30 p.m. 
Applications will be accepted 
from Thursday, October 1, 
to Friday, October 30, 2020 
only. The application will be 
available on the Second Unit 
ADU Program webpage 
starting September 15.

 Each application will be 
scored and ranked based on 
household data submitted 
in their application. The 
highest-ranking applications 
will be contacted after the 
application window closes.

 Eligibility requirements are 
available in the Second Unit 
ADU Program Handbook.
