At a news conference late this afternoon, Gov. Tom Wolf announced new Covid-19 restrictions to take effect on Saturday at 12:01 am until Monday, January 4 at 8 am.
No indoor dining.
Casinos, bowling alleys, theaters and gyms closed.
No high school sports.
No spectators at pro or college sports.
50% occupancy at every business.
Indoor gatherings limited to 10 people.
Northampton County is currently in the middle of a capital jury trial. Testimony in that case is supposed to continue on Monday. Will these new restrictions necessitate a mistrial? I believe that case must be permitted to conclude.
