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. Jim.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.

Representative Owlett, On Wednesday evening, the Governor talked about reopening some regions of PA, what regions are being considered?

RESPONSE – Please watch broadcast for response.

What can you tell us about the different phases of the Governor’s reopening plan?

RESPONSE – Please watch broadcast for response.

On your last online update, you spoke about Tioga County getting a “shout out” from the Governor, what does that mean for our us with regard to moving through the phases?

Thank you Representative Owlett

Commissioner Coolidge, on his Wednesday update, the Governor mentioned Tioga County by name as a county being considered to move to the Yellow Phase, what steps are you and the board of commissioners taking to prepare the county?

RESPONSE – Please watch broadcast for response.

Tioga County has been on the leading edge of the curve ever since this outbreak began, do you also see us also leading the charge with regard to the governor’s reopening phases?

RESPONSE – Please watch broadcast for response.

We have a lot of people and business in Tioga County struggling what words of encouragement can you offer them?

RESPONSE – Please watch broadcast for response.

Thank You Commissioner Coolidge

Mayor Nickerson, Blossburg borough has been very active and busy ever since the outbreak started, what is the borough now doing to prepare itself and the surrounding townships for the transition to Yellow Phase?

 RESPONSE – Please watch broadcast for response.

What advice do you have for your residents and all residents of Tioga County as the stress of this virus continues to impact our daily lives?

 Thank You Mayor

Councilmen Schlosser, Mansfield has had some challenges, from changes at the university to working with various box retailers in the Mansfield area; is Mansfield ready to move to the next phase of the governor’s plan?

 RESPONSE – Please watch broadcast for response.

In the Yellow Phase, schools will remain closed, what advice can you offer to help keep our students remain mentally and physically engaged?

 RESPONSE – Please watch broadcast for response.

Borough Manager Boyce, Managing the Wellsboro Borough must be very challenging, as Borough Manager what are you doing to prepare for the eventual reopening?

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
