TIGUE ROAD CLOSURE

JULY 1 FACE COVERING ORDER
Expanding on the business safety order signed by Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine in April that requires the wearing of masks in businesses, Governor Tom Wolf announced a new order on July 1 that takes the mask-wearing directive one step further. While the Governor has indicated that masks must be worn whenever anyone leaves home, the actual order is more nuanced. For instance, masks are only required outdoors if people are unable to maintain six-foot social distancing with people who are not members of their household. We are currently working to balance the Green Phase reopening recommendations with this new order, particularly with regards to parks and recreational uses. In the meantime, the PA State Police are tasked with administering the Governor’s orders ((610) 486-6280). If you are unable to reach the State Police, you can contact the West Chester Police at (610) 696-2700.
Public meetings may be conducted in person or via teleconference due to the COVID-19 virus. The status of each meeting will be posted on the calendar and on the Boards and Commissions page. If you have questions, contact Mandie Cantlin at email@example.com or (610) 436-5108 x102.

SPOTTED LANTERN FLY
Spotted Lanternfly (SLF) nymphs are beginning to emerge in considerable numbers. The SLF can damage many plants including fruit and hardwood trees. They can also cause serious damage to yards, open spaces, plant nurseries, tree farms, and vineyards. Visit the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s website for more information on the SLF. Also visit the East Bradford Township Environmental Advisory Council’s page on the Spotted Lanternfly.
