5 Ways to Get Your Confidence Back After COVID Lockdowns

Feeling a bit less confident than you used to be? According to Cosmetic Business, a British survey discovered that 20% of respondents report feeling less confident now than they were before the pandemic.

Background: Newsom’s order on Wednesday came after Mayor Libby Schaaf sent a formal request for CHP support in Oakland’s commercial corridors and International Boulevard. That request came after Chinatown leaders — led by Carl Chan, president of the Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce — called on Newsom to declare a state of emergency in the city.
