If overall risk remains mitigated for 14 days, we will 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 will facilitate a return to a “new normal,” it will be 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.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 ProhibitedRestaurants 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 can be found here.The Governor’s amended yellow phase order can be found here.The Governor’s amended green phase order can be found here.The Secretary of Health’s amended yellow phase order can be found here.The Secretary of Health’s amended green phase order can be found here.Ver esta página en español.

Anxious wait for injured Distin

first_img Press Association The French defender was forced off with a hamstring injury at half-time of Sunday’s victory over Manchester United and will definitely miss Saturday’s trip to Southampton. By the weekend Everton hope to be in a position to know the extent of the injury but the worst-case scenario is the season is over for the 36-year-old, who up until the weekend had completed 90 minutes in every one of his previous 31 league starts. Everton centre-back Sylvain Distin faces an anxious 48 hours to find out whether his season has been prematurely ended by injury. center_img “Sylvain had to come off against United on Sunday and he won’t be fit for this weekend,” said manager Roberto Martinez. “It is a little bit too early to know how long he is going to be out. “I do think that over the next 48 hours we will have a clear idea of whether he will be available before the season ends.” With Phil Jagielka still not ready to return from a hamstring injury which has sidelined him since the end of February it leaves Martinez with youngster John Stones, who has impressed deputising for Jagielka, and Antolin Alcaraz – who has played just five times since making his debut in December following an injury-troubled start to life at Goodison Park following after his summer move from Wigan. Jagielka is expected to return next weekend when title-chasers Manchester City visit. Midfielders Steven Pienaar and Darron Gibson (both knee), strikers Arouna Kone (knee) and on-loan Lacina Traore (hamstring) and defender Bryan Oviedo (broken leg) are all still sidelined. last_img read more
