Plans to Safely Reopen Tioga County

Residents adherence to guidelines moves us to the front of the line!

 

by James Nobles / Tioga County COVID-19 Task Force - April 27, 2020

On today’s Tioga County Task Force update, community leaders Jim Nobles, Representative Clint Owlett, Commissioner Erick Coolidge, Blossburg Mayor Shane Nickerson, Mansfield Borough Councilman William Schlosser, and Wellsboro Borough Manager Scot Boyce – discuss plans for recovery.

As COVID-19 cases start to decline in many regions of the commonwealth, the discussion starts to shift to one of recovery while simultaneously continuing to control the spread of the disease.

On Wednesday April 22nd Governor Wolf rolled out the phases he’s established for Pennsylvania’s road to recovery.

The phases use a Red, Yellow and Green format with Red being the most restrictive and the phase we are in now which includes the stay-at-home order and only allows for life sustaining business to be open.

For more information on all 3 of the Governor’s phases, please visit the Task Force Facebook page.

The Task Force has been discussing recovery plans since the very early stages of this outbreak. We couldn’t be prouder of everything Tioga County has done to control the spread and keep our number infected as low as possible.

Now as we look toward recovery and moving to the Yellow Phase of the Governor’s plan, once again Tioga County in leading the charge for the North Central Pennsylvania.

For more on this, today we are joined by a host of state, county and local leaders to discuss Tioga Counties road to recovery.

RESPONSE – Please watch broadcast for response.

RESPONSE – Please watch broadcast for response.

In the Yellow Phase gatherings of more than 25 people and theaters such as the Arcadia Theater must remain closed, what are some other activities people can do as we start ease the restrictions?

RESPONSE – Please watch broadcast for response.

Gentleman, thank you very much for talking with us today.  It’s very encouraging to hear that at the State, County and Local level is keeping a weather eye on the positive changes ahead.

As the Task Force has always said, Community Means Everyone and here in Tioga County, we all did our share of the heavy lift to protect our county.

While we are not done just yet, there is a light starting to flicker ahead.

May 8th is just a couple weeks away and now is not the time to take our foot off the gas. We’ve done very well up to this point, so let’s continue to stay the course.

While we remain in the Red Phase, please adhere to all the requirement.  Stay at home unless you need to leave for life sustaining reasons. If you must leave, wear a mask over your face and nose. Avoid gatherings and following the social distancing requirements.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel, but we still need your help while we transition.

Stay Home
Stay Masked if you must go out
Stay Healthy and Wash Your Hands
