Delco House Democrats thank fellow residents for work toward Green Phase

(Jun 19, 2020)

HARRISBURG, June 19 – Pennsylvania House Democrats representing Delaware County praised residents for their diligence and sacrifice in flattening the deadly curve of COVID-19 infections following Gov. Tom Wolf’s announcement today that the county will enter Green Phase recovery efforts on June 26. During the Green Phase, aggressive mitigation tactics to control the spread of the disease are lifted, but several key defenses against it stay in effect. Personal care services, including hair salons and barber shops, must operate at 50% capacity or by appointment only; appointments or reservations also are strongly encouraged for gyms or spas. Any gathering for a planned or spontaneous event of greater than 250 individuals is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, a concert, festival, fair, conference, sporting event, movie showing or theater performance. Visitation to prisons and hospitals may resume subject to the discretion of the facility. Nursing home visitation restrictions remain in place. Restaurants and bars may be open at 50% occupancy. Casinos, theaters, and shopping malls can open at 50% occupancy. Churches, synagogues, temples, mosques and other places of congregate worship are excluded from limitations. These institutions are strongly encouraged to enforce social distancing and other mitigation measures such as masking at their gatherings. Other details can be found here . Read more
