Gov. Wolf Thanks Pennsylvanians for Their Part to Slow the Spread of COVID-19, Centre County to Move to Green May 26, 2020 Press Release, Public Health As part of a COVID-19 briefing, Governor Tom Wolf today thanked Pennsylvanians, including the Pennsylvania National Guard, for the many contributions to the pandemic response. He also announced that Centre County will move to green on Friday.“I personally want to thank our National Guard members and their families for their work, especially during these trying times,” Gov. Wolf said. “Just like other families across the commonwealth, I know our military families are facing new challenges. Some are overcoming these challenges while coping with one parent being away from home due to a deployment to a COVID-19 site. That’s really showing the strength of these dedicated, courageous Pennsylvanians.”He also thanked Pennsylvanians for their contributions that helped to move us toward a broader reopening of the state.“We’re able to make this progress toward safely reopening our economy because people are taking precautions and keeping themselves and their communities safe – whether it is a person wearing a mask or a business changing their operations to protect employees and customers,” Gov Wolf said. “I thank each and every one of you for doing your part.”On Friday, Gov. Wolf announced eight additional counties will move to yellow and 17 to green, effective at 12:01 a.m., this Friday. All remaining counties in red are expected to move to yellow by June 5 at 12:01 a.m.The counties moving to yellow on Friday include Dauphin, Franklin, Huntingdon, Lebanon, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike and Schuylkill.The 17 counties moving to green, also on Friday, include Bradford, Cameron, Clarion, Clearfield, Crawford, Elk, Forest, Jefferson, Lawrence, McKean, Montour, Potter, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga, Venango and Warren. Centre County is eligible to move to green on May 29, so county officials chose to vote today to decide to move ahead and Centre will now be the 18th county to move to green on Friday.Counties that remain in red on May 29 and are expected to move to yellow by June 5 include Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lehigh, Northampton, Montgomery, and Philadelphia.The Wolf Administration released Summer Camp Guidance on Friday in the form of frequently asked questions for parents, summer camp operators, public bathing places, part-day school-age programs, and other entities that provide necessary child care and enrichment and recreational activities for children and youth during the summer months. This guidance is especially helpful as most counties are moving to yellow or green.“Because of our collective commitment to actions that reduce COVID-19 spread, several counties will be moving into the green phase on Friday,” Gov. Wolf said. “We’re continuing to ramp up testing and contact tracing across the state to help ensure we can identify cases and eliminate outbreaks even as we reopen our economy.Ver esta página en español.

Traditional area power Santa Fe had the best team success, qualifying an area-best five wrestlers for next weekend’s CIF-SS Masters Meet and finishing third in the team standings behind champion Temecula Valley and second-place Santa Ana. California also fared well, placing 10th and qualifying three to next week’s meet – Melendrez, Ruben Warr (130) and Nik Noriega (152). El Rancho also finished with three qualifiers – Joseph Salas (119), Tony Fernandez (189) and Billie Rivera (215). Melendrez, meanwhile, expanded on his expectations, upsetting top-seeded Couts in the semifinals before scoring an 8-4 decision over Lompoc’s Masson Blow in the final. “It’s an awesome feeling,” Melendrez said. “To do this, and just being a sophomore, is a great accomplishment. “Beating (Couts) just gave me so much momentum towards the finals. It was a tough match (in the finals). I guess I just wanted it more, so I went after it.” Zuniga was in complete control in the 215 final before scoring a 5-3 decision over Temecula Valley’s Eduardo Marquez. “It’s just so great to win CIF,” Zuniga said. “This is why you do all that work all season long, and it feels great.” [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3061 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

We had some tough losses, otherwise we might have been up there with Temecula Valley. “But the guys who placed wrestled well. Now we just have to continue to work hard this week in practice and be ready for next week.” Orona was one of three Chiefs, including Crouch and Romero, to advance to the finals. He breezed through the first four rounds before using a late escape to defeat Westlake’s Arian Ghaffari in the 119 final. “(Ghaffari) wrestled defensively,” Orona said. “I just had to go for my shots. “My goal going in was to just maintain my state ranking. I did what I was supposed to do.” RANCHO CUCAMONGA – Three was definitely the number for area wrestlers who competed at Saturday’s CIF-Southern Section Inland Division championships at Los Osos High School.
