ATTENTION LOCAL BUSINESSES

Please take the survey created for local businesses and organizations to provide important background information for generating short-term economic-recovery action steps as a result of the Covid pandemic.   The survey takes about 12 minutes and will run until October 11.  After the survey results are tabulated, the consultant will be conducting focus group meetings with you.  The final step will be putting together proposed action steps.

 

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

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 mcantlin@eastbradford.org or (610) 436-5108 x102.

 

BE COUNTED – HELP OTHERS BE COUNTED

Each person counted in the 2020 Census – including newborns and children – brings just over $2,000 into the community, every year, for 10 years. That’s $2,000 per person per year for 10 years.    Call 844-330-2020 (English); 844-468-2020 (Spanish), complete online at 2020cesus.gov. or complete mailed version.  Only 9 questions – completely confidential.   If you know of residents in West Chester or Coatesville who have not completed the census, encourage them to do so as these areas have a lower response rate.  Deadline Oct. 31, 2020.
