Gov. Wolf Announces 13 Counties will Move to Yellow Phase of Reopening on May 15 May 08, 2020 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Press Release, Public Health Today Governor Tom Wolf announced 13 Pennsylvania counties will move to the yellow phase of reopening at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, May 15. Those counties include Allegheny, Armstrong, Bedford, Blair, Butler, Cambria, Fayette, Fulton, Greene, Indiana, Somerset, Washington and Westmoreland.On May 1, the governor announced the 24 counties moving into the yellow phase of reopening beginning today. And, last evening, he and Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine signed new orders – one for yellow phase reopening and one to extend the red phase counties’ stay-at-home order, which was set to expire last night, to June 4. The red phase stay-at-home order extension does not mean that other counties won’t move to the yellow phase in advance of June 4.“The reopening plan prioritizes the health and welfare of Pennsylvanians by using a combination of factors to gauge how much movement a location can tolerate before the 2019 novel coronavirus becomes a threat,” Gov. Wolf said. “I’d like to emphasize that this plan is not a one-way route. We are closely monitoring the 24 counties in the yellow phase and will re-impose restrictions if danger arises.”Gov. Wolf reminded residents and business owners that yellow means caution and that everyone needs to continue to be mindful of their actions and how they affect not only themselves, but their families, friends and community.“Every contact between two people is a new link in the chain of potential transmission,” Wolf said. “And if the new case count begins to climb in one area, restrictions will need to be imposed to prevent local medical facilities from becoming overwhelmed. So, Pennsylvanians should continue to make good choices.”Law enforcement remains focused on achieving voluntary compliance through education, but citations are possible for violators depending on the specific circumstances of an investigation.In addition to the possible criminal penalties levied by law enforcement, there may be additional licensing consequences for violators, in part, through complaints filed by employees on the Department of Health portal that allows any employee who feels their employer is not providing a safe work environment to fill out an online form.The Department of Health vets the complaints and investigates internally or sends the complaint to the appropriate state agency for investigation. For example, restaurant complaints are handled by the Department of Agriculture, which inspects those facilities; complaints about nursing homes are handled by the Department of Health, which inspects and licenses those facilities. Other involved agencies are the departments of State and Labor & Industry.Concerns about a business reopening that may be in violation of stay-at-home or yellow phase orders should be made to local law enforcement non-emergency numbers or a local elected official.Read Gov.

For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Indian cricket team has had woeful overseas returns in 2018. They lost the series 2-1 in South Africa while in England, they were hammered 4-1. However, Virat Kohli’s side have made an excellent start in their tour of Australia with a magnificent 31-run win in the Adelaide Test. During all these overseas tours, the contribution of the bowlers has been magnificent. The likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja have all performed admirably and given the team plenty of opportunities to secure a win only for the batsmen to squander it. In the South Africa series, the Indian bowlers took all 60 wickets while in England, they took 82 out of the 90 wickets. In Adelaide, they picked up all 20 wickets for a famous win,Speaking in the press conference ahead of the second Test in Perth, India’s bowling coach Bharat Arun praised the current group of bowlers highly. “I can say that not only now for what they did in Adelaide but what they’ve done over a period of time in South Africa, in England and now in Australia. This is probably one of the best group of fast bowlers India has ever had,” Arun said.Read More | Cheteshwar Pujara breaks into the top five of latest ICC rankingsArun highlighted the fact that better execution was the key to the success of the side. “Consistency was a bit issue (on previous tours) and that’s something we’ve addressed with the bowlers. It’s something we’ve really worked hard on. We insist on one-person form factor even during practice, and the bowlers have responded exceptionally well. That’s showing dividends right now. It’s very simple work. Each time they come to the net and they bowl, they need to be aware of their plans and what they need to execute. Each time it’s a little different of what they need to execute. We just test as to how far they’ve executed each time. That feedback allows them to be more consistent,” Arun said.Read More | Adelaide, Johannesburg and Trent Bridge: India’s common gloryThe India fast bowling coach added that the potential of a fast and bouncy wicket at the New Perth stadium is not a deterrent to the side’s confidence.Read More | Virat Kohli’s India cricket team break records in Adelaide victoryMarcus Harris, the debutant in the Adelaide Test, also heaped praise on the current Indian bowling line-up. “I realised pretty quickly they don’t bowl any crap and they don’t miss any chances that you give them. So you’ve got to be switched on from ball one. I felt like my game stood up to it, it’s probably just a decision-making thing and being able to occupy the crease for long periods of time, but I didn’t feel like I was out of my depth at all,” Harris said.
