    >> Mayor Garcetti: GOOD MORNING, LOS ANGELES AND WHAT A PLEASURE IT IS TO BE WITH YOU AT THE BEGINNING OF A WEEK WHICH I KNOW FOR SO MANY OF US CONTINUES TO BE WEEKS OF STRUGGLE, OF HOPE, OF COMING TOGETHER, AND OF COURSE OF CHALLENGES

    BUT HERE WE ARE AT THE TOM BRADLEY TERMINAL, NAME AFTER OUR CITY'S GREATEST MAYOR WHERE INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS COME IN AND LEAVE FROM OUR CITY WHICH IS THE NUMBER ONE AIRPORT ONE IN WHICH WE COME TOGETHER AND ONE THAT IS ESPECIALLY HARD HIT BECAUSE OF THE PANDEMIC WE'RE HERE TODAY TO MARK THE LAUNCH OF WHAT WE'RE CALLING THE TERMINAL WELLNESS PROGRAM TO PROTECT YOUR SAFETY, OUR ECONOMY MOVE FORWARD AND TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY STAYS HEALTHY DURING THIS PANDEMIC
