Virtual Newport Beach Garden Tour

The annual Newport Beach Garden Tour is going virtual this year.

The tour, now in its 24th year, is the biggest fundraiser for Newport’s nonprofit Sherman Library & Gardens. But with the coronavirus pandemic making in-person gatherings unadvisable, a video production company has captured residential botanical scenes and stories from gardeners that will be posted on Sherman Gardens’ website Saturday for ticket holders.

Ticket holders will also receive an invitation to a Summer Garden Party at Sherman Gardens planned for Aug. 29.

Tickets start at $50 and can be purchased at thesherman.org. Proceeds will support children’s education programs.

UC Irvine launches COVID-19 website

UC Irvine released a comprehensive resource site to provide Orange County and other regional communities with information on the coronavirus pandemic.

The website, oc-covid19.org, offers information derived from the university’s academic and healthcare research and practices, ranging in stories on the latest medical and research breakthroughs made on the virus to expert-based articles on how to cope during social distancing. Content ranges from community updates, podcasts, advice and resources for distance learning for parents and other answers to basic questions on COVID-19.

“There is appropriate concern and uncertainty about COVID-19, particularly how we should act today and what our lives will be like in the future. As a premier public institution, UCI is committed to sharing accurate information about the disease and its impact,” Dr. Steve Goldstein, vice chancellor of health affairs, said in a statement. “Our aspiration is for this new site to be a valued resource that informs, engages and reassures Orange County residents and those they love.”
