The Philadelphia Department of Public Health is sending texts and emails to contact individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19, or who may have come in contact with a person with COVID-19.
Individuals are asked to complete a brief survey to help the Health Department better understand and monitor the spread of COVID-19 in Philadelphia. Questions address demographic details, signs and symptoms, and information about exposure history, travel, and hospitalization. Participation is voluntary.

The City issued a new Business Activity and Stay at Home Order detailing restrictions on business activity, personal activity, and congregation in Philadelphia in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. These new restrictions take effect Monday, March 23, 2020, at 8 a.m.

ALERT: We implemented the Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds final rule nationwide on Feb. 24, 2020, including in Illinois where the rule was enjoined until the Supreme Court stayed the injunction on Feb. 21, 2020. The final rule applies to applications and petitions postmarked (or submitted electronically) on or after Feb. 24, 2020. For applications and petitions sent by commercial courier (such as UPS, FedEx and DHL), the postmark date is the date reflected on the courier receipt.
The Final Rule requires applicants for adjustment of status who are subject to the public charge ground of inadmissibility and certain applicants and petitioners seeking extension of stay and change of status to report certain information related to public benefits. Due to litigation-related delays in the Final Rule’s implementation, USCIS is applying this requirement as though it refers to Feb. 24, 2020, rather than October 15, 2019.

I’m happy that Dennis has found his place back in the squad since the departure of Verlinden back to Stoke. While we do miss the Belgians direct running at times, Politic has been more than worthy of a replacement and that was especially on display yesterday against Portsmouth. He’s spent most of this season playing out wide with Darcy operating in the middle so it was interesting to see him given the free role in behind. I thought Darcy and Hamilton and him worked really well together and interchanged their roles behind the striker successfully throughout the first half, albeit without much joy.
The Romanian’s first half saw him sitting in behind Joe Dodoo looking for flicks and knockdowns in behind, as it was he only had one real opportunity of note. Immediately following the Portsmouth opener, a ball was knocked in behind for Politic to run onto but his
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — “The government is the problem,” they say. “The government can’t create jobs.” Or: “The government should just get out of the way.” How many times over the past three — or 30 — years have you heard conservatives (and even a few liberals) say that there’s no role for government in fixing our economy?
They’re wrong, but this constant refrain is having an impact on our political system; it’s narrowing our options as we struggle with excessive unemployment, burdensome debt and wasted lives.
As often as this anti-government cliché is repeated, few politicians actually believe it. Republicans are just as quick as Democrats to ask for federal funding for local projects — funds that they know improve the lives of voters. Despite what they say for political

From Middle English suster-in-lawe; equivalent to sister + in + law.
sister-in-law (plural sisters-in-law)
- A female relative of one’s generation, separated by one degree of marriage:
- The sister of one’s spouse.
- The wife of one’s sibling.
- (less common) Co-sister-in-law: The wife of one’s sibling-in-law.
- The wife of the sibling of one’s spouse.
- The sister of the spouse of one’s sibling.
The plural sister-in-laws is occasionally seen, especially in American English, but this is considered incorrect by most sources; see, for example, .
The government is closed – possibly for a “very long shutdown” according to President Donald Trump – but will it make a difference in your life?
The answer? It depends.
If you’re among the 800,000 government employees who are not deemed “essential,” you will feel the effects of the shutdown: You will either be furloughed or forced to work without pay until the standoff is resolved.
The shutdown, which began at midnight Saturday when Congress couldn’t agree on a spending plan that included $5 billion for Trump’s border wall, affects nine departments: Agriculture, Commerce, Justice, Homeland Security, Interior, State, Transportation, Treasury and Housing and Urban Development, as well as several agencies. Six departments had budgets approved earlier.
What won’t be affected by the shutdown?
Flights. Air-traffic controllers and security officers still will be on the job even though the shutdown has begun.
Amtrak. The trains are run by a government-owned
My Politic has created a storytelling masterpiece on 12 Kinds Of Lost, exploring the human condition through empathetic narratives against a backdrop of Appalachian-influenced Americana, Country & Folk music.
12 Kinds Of Lost is an anthology record with each song telling tales through a series of characters coping with heartache, depression, anxiety, detaching from roots, dealing with cancer and fighting addiction.
Like a 1-2 punch, Guffey is a raconteur of imagination while co-writer Nick Pankey is the grounding force that accentuates the songcraft. With tight harmonies and a workshop of instruments including Dobro mandolin, upright bass, fiddle, drums and more, the songwriting duo is surrounded by a band of skilled musicians.
Guffey and Pankey met in 2003 in the small town of Ozark, Missouri while playing in other musical projects. In 2006, My Politic was formed and at the age of 16, the boys recorded their first album,A Few Words
