Tuesday (3/24) Update: Crossroads & Coronavirus (resources)
ince I was unable to get the Monday post out on time, today’s official post will just include some community updates and links.
“Stay at Home” issued for Delaware County by Governor Wolf
In theory, this formal declaration doesn’t change much about how we’ve been living for the last week or so… It is important to note that not only are religious institutions exempt, but also many good deeds are still possible (like helping vulnerable people). And there is no restriction on getting groceries and medicine.
This is the official announcement from Delaware County alert system (follow the link to get helpful updates directly):
Gov. Wolf has issued “Stay at Home” orders to Delaware County to help stop the spread of COVID-19. The order takes effect at 8:00 PM on Monday, March 23, 2020, and will continue until April 6, 2020. More details here: https://www.delcopa.gov/ich/pdfs/GovWolf_StayAtHome.pdf
Please help spread the word regarding this valuable information resource!
