The Wolf Administration has supported specific county requests for more restrictions throughout the phased reopening process.Gov. Wolf’s Process to Reopen Pennsylvania includes details of each phase of reopening.Green PhaseAfter a county transitions to the yellow phase, we closely monitor for increased risk, such as significant outbreaks. If overall risk remains mitigated for 14 days, we transition the county to the green phase.The green phase eases most restrictions by lifting the stay-at-home and business closure orders to allow the economy to strategically reopen while continuing to prioritize public health.While this phase facilitates a return to a “new normal,” it is equally important to continue to monitor public health indicators and adjust orders and restrictions as necessary to ensure the spread of disease remains at a minimum. It is also imperative that people wear masks when leaving home and in settings where social distancing is not feasible.Work and Congregate Settings RestrictionsContinued Telework Strongly EncouragedBusinesses with In-Person Operations Must Follow Updated Business and Building Safety RequirementsAll Businesses Operating at 50% Occupancy in the Yellow Phase May Increase to 75% OccupancyChild Care May Open Complying with GuidanceCongregate Care Restrictions in PlacePrison and Hospital Restrictions Determined by Individual FacilitiesSchools Subject to CDC and Commonwealth GuidanceSocial RestrictionsLarge Gatherings of More Than 250 ProhibitedMasks Are Required When Entering a BusinessRestaurants and Bars Open at 50% OccupancyPersonal Care Services (including hair salons and barbershops) Open at 50% Occupancy and by Appointment OnlyIndoor Recreation, Health and Wellness Facilities, and Personal Care Services (such as gyms and spas) Open at 50% Occupancy with Appointments Strongly EncouragedAll Entertainment (such as casinos, theaters, and shopping malls) Open at 50% OccupancyConstruction Activity May Return to Full Capacity with Continued Implementation of ProtocolsThe latest business guidance, including outdoor recreation guidance.Preliminary sports guidance.Summer camp guidance.The Governor’s amended green phase order.The Secretary of Health’s amended green phase order.Ver esta página en español.
The Lakers should seriously consider adding Dwight Howard, according to multiple league executives.Los Angeles is reportedly interested in the 33-year-old center after DeMarcus Cousins tore his ACL during a workout last week. League executives told USA Today’s HoopsHype that inking Howard to a minimum deal is a low risk, high reward scenario. DeMarcus Cousins injury update: Lakers center tears ACL in Las Vegas workout Dwight Howard rumors: 3 reasons Lakers should pursue the big man Jrue Holiday discusses Pelicans trading Anthony Davis to Lakers, drafting Zion Williamson “I think it’s worth the risk for them,” one anonymous executive said. “If it doesn’t work out, they can cut bait.”Howard was sent from the Wizards to the Grizzlies in early July. Memphis is expected to waive Howard, which would make him a free agent, and the team has reportedly already given Los Angeles permission to speak with him. Related News Another executive told HoopsHype:“Personal baggage aside, I would sign him. He’s clearly the best player available if he’s healthy. We’ve heard the same song from him for years (as far as changing). But for the minimum? Why not? If it doesn’t work, they move on.”Howard was a star early in his career, however, he has struggled with injuries and reportedly clashed with teammates in recent seasons. He previously played for the Lakers in 2012-13 and said last month he was open to returning to Los Angeles.“It just wasn’t the right fit for me at the time,” Howard told the Los Angeles Times in early July. “But the Lakers have been doing something right for a long time because they have the most fans in the world and the most championships over the past 40 years. You’re not going to win a championship every year, but they’re back and will compete for a championship next season.”The Lakers rebuilt their roster this summer when they acquired Anthony Davis in a trade with the Pelicans to pair with LeBron James. They created cap space to add a third max player but missed out on Kawhi Leonard, who signed with the Clippers. Los Angeles then inked Avery Bradley, Danny Green, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, JaVale McGee, Quinn Cook, Rajon Rondo and Alex Caruso to deals, in addition to Cousins.McGee is currently the only healthy center on the Lakers’ roster.
