As of last Friday, May 22nd, Susquehanna County moved from the red zone to yellow zone. Being in the yellow zone means we still have to take precautions like wearing masks in public settings, but more opportunities are opening up in the yellow zone.
Stay at home restrictions are lifted, but “aggressive mitigation” will still be used. Large gatherings of more than 25 people will be prohibited. Restaurants will continue to be limited to carry-out and delivery, but may add outdoor dining. All businesses have to follow the Centers Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Health’s guidance about social distancing and cleaning. Public places such as gyms, spas, casinos, and theaters still remain closed.
Although there are still many limits, there is hope for moving to the green zone soon.
