I have questions about some of the statistics being disseminated by the PA Department of Health.

On Wednesday, I discovered I was not alone after receiving the letter above from Speaker of the House Mike Turzai.
 
 


Traditional public schools and charter schools in Pennsylvania are about to receive financial support as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

The PA Department of Education has applied to the U.S. Department of Education for the one-time funds. The application is expected to be approved very soon, and schools will then have to apply for the funding through a process PDE is responsible for creating.

The money may be used for a wide range of purposes, including food service; professional training; technology purchases; sanitization and cleaning supplies; summer and after-school programs; and mental health supports.

Here is the amount of money schools I represent in the 71st District are eligible to receive in Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds:
 
  •   Brockway Area - $193,949
  •   Clearfield Area - $671,687

• Interstate 80 eastbound at mile marker 221, left (passing) lane will be restricted.

Motorists should expect travel delays and lane changes. Motorists are urged to slow down, drive with caution, and be alert for stopped or slow-moving vehicles.

House Leaders Urge Governor to Lift Restrictions

HARRISBURG – House Republican leaders issued the following statement in response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s reopening announcement today:

“Millions of Pennsylvanians are sitting at home out of work, while their children are not being properly educated, and their loved ones in nursing homes are still not being adequately protected by the state.

“The governor’s go-it-alone approach continues to unfairly impact Pennsylvanians who want nothing more than to abide by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and provide for their families. Pennsylvanians deserve the opportunity to protect themselves without having the government shutting down their livelihoods any longer.

“The counties fortunate enough to be deemed ‘yellow’ today, despite meeting the newly formed guidelines weeks ago, will only now start the pathway to recovering from an economic disaster they could have avoided if given the opportunity sooner. Meanwhile, residents in ‘red’ counties continue to suffer under the plague of not just a pandemic, but a state unemployment system that is cracking under immense pressure.

“The governor has continuously said the timeline for Pennsylvanians is being determined by the virus. Well, we cannot wait any longer for the ‘virus’ to return our calls.

“Pennsylvanians have passed the test and flattened the curve.

“Testing for those on the front lines, along with those interacting with the most vulnerable populations, is the key to resuming our lives, not a color-coded map.

“We will continue to push for expanded and effective testing so we can truly know where our state’s resources should be best used to defeat the virus, and allow Pennsylvanians to get back to work, school and places of worship.”

L&I Provides Update on Appeal Process for Certain UC Claimants

Harrisburg, PA – The Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) is advising that anyone who receives a denial of their unemployment compensation (UC) claim after the time for appeal has expired and believes the denial was incorrect, may still file an appeal. Due to the historic 1.7 million new UC claims received over the past seven weeks, L&I experienced some previously announced mailing delays involving some Personal Identification Numbers (PINs). As a result, some UC claimants and their employers may have received their notice of determination letters near the end of a listed appeal period or after it had already expired. 

“We want everyone impacted by this delay to know they may still file an appeal if they believe the denial was incorrect,” said L&I Secretary Jerry Oleksiak. “The UC Board of Review has been made aware of these special circumstances related to COVID-19. We apologize for any added frustration this may cause.” 

When the department makes a UC eligibility determination, the claimant and their employer are both sent a copy of that decision. Under the Pennsylvania Unemployment Compensation Law, determinations become final unless an appeal is timely filed.
Typically, claimants or employers may file an appeal within 15 calendar days of the mailing date to a UC Appeals Referee and a hearing will be scheduled. Because of the special circumstances involved in this situation, the Appeals Referees will take the mailing delay into account when deciding the timeliness of an appeal.

Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all UC appeal hearings are being conducted by telephone. When an appeals hearing is scheduled, all parties will be notified of the date and time of the hearing by mail and/or email with at least seven days’ notice. To learn more about filing a UC Service Center determination appeal, click here.
Individuals who received outdated determination letters should still follow the general appeal instructions provided in the letter. Appeals may be filed by email at UCAppeals@pa.gov.
Helpful benefit appeal FAQs are also available for UC claimants. Additional information can be found on our website at www.uc.pa.gov, as well as Facebook and Twitter.

Limited Services Available at Additional PennDOT Driver License and Photo License Centers in Yellow Phase Counties

Also Offering Designated Hours for Customers 60 and Older

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that beginning May 9, 2020, additional Driver License and Photo License Centers in yellow phase counties will reopen, adhering to restrictions on work and social interaction set by Governor Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

PA GAME COMMISSION EXTENDS LIFE OF 2019-20 SHOOTING-RANGE PERMITS

2019-20 permits and licenses can be used on ranges through Aug. 31.

Pennsylvania Game Commission 2019-20 shooting-range permits will remain valid for an additional two months after their printed expiration date to make up for lost opportunity from the agency closing ranges in compliance with COVID-19 guidelines.

Permits for 2019-20 have a printed expiration date of June 30, 2020. However, the Game Commission will continue to consider them valid through Aug. 31, 2020.

Pennsylvania 2019-20 hunting and furtaker licenses, which also are set to expire June 30, 2020 and allow holders to use shooting ranges on game lands, will be honored for range use through Aug. 31, 2020, as well. However, hunters and trappers are reminded that beginning July 1, 2020, they will need 2020-21 licenses before engaging in any hunting or trapping activity through June 30, 2021.

Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans said extending the life of 2019-20 shooting-range permits is only fair considering state game lands shooting ranges closed statewide March 20, and the first ranges – those in counties upgraded to COVID-19 “yellow phase” – didn’t open until today.

“The state’s COVID-19 guidelines offered little choice but to close ranges statewide initially,” Burhans said. “Still, the Game Commission wants to be fair to those who pay to use ranges on state game lands, and making 2019-20 shooting range permits, as well as 2019-20 hunting and furtaker licenses, valid to use shooting ranges through Aug. 31 will enable shooters to make up for lost time.”

Ranges on game lands in counties upgraded today to COVID-19 “yellow phase” have resumed regular hours.

The shooting ranges that reopened include those on: State Game Lands 24 in Forest County; State Game Lands 72 in Clarion County; State Game Lands 109 in Erie County; State Game Lands 176 in Centre County; and State Game Lands 77 in Clearfield County.

Ranges on game lands in other counties remain closed.

Future changes regarding the opening of additional game-lands shooting ranges will be announced by the Game Commission as they are authorized.

The reopening of ranges includes any rifle, shotgun, pistol and archery ranges on state game lands.

Gov. Wolf Signs Child Marriage Ban, Psychology Compact Bills

Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf signed into law House Bill 360, which sets 18 as the minimum age to obtain a marriage license and extends the time period for child care and school employees to obtain their criminal Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) background certifications.

“Setting the minimum age to obtain a marriage license will help prevent child exploitation,” said Gov. Wolf. “Marriage is a sacred and serious commitment that should be undertaken with love by two adults, not by children being exploited by unscrupulous adults.”

Gov. Wolf also signed into law Senate Bill 67, which amends regulations to expand the availability of psychological services through telemedicine.

“The COVID-19 crisis has reduced Pennsylvanians’ ability to meet in-person with a therapist during a time when they are facing life changes, stress, and grief,” said Gov. Wolf. “Senate Bill 67 will allow Pennsylvanians to more easily access psychological services for mental wellness while supporting physical health through social distancing.”

Wolf Administration Provides Guidance for Buildings Closed During COVID-19

Harrisburg, PA – As businesses in counties enter the Yellow Phase of the state’s reopening plan, the Pennsylvania departments of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Health (DOH) are encouraging owners and operators of dormant buildings to flush building water systems prior to reopening. Buildings that have been closed or used less frequently for an extended period of time may experience problems with water quality due to stagnation.

“As buildings have been shut down or used less frequently as a result of COVID-19 mitigation efforts, building water quality degradation becomes a silent but serious issue,” said DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “Legionella, pathogens, lead, and disinfection byproducts can result when water sits for an extended period of time, which may lead to health issues.”

In the days leading up to reopening, the following recommendations and considerations should be made, and a team of facilities staff or a water management consultant will be needed to prepare the water system.

“As we carefully and intentionally determine which businesses are safe to reopen, we must also make sure they reopen in a manner that is protective of employees and customers,” said Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine.

Buildings that have been closed or used less frequently should consider the following measures:

• Develop a flushing plan
o Identify where the water enters the building, all taps (faucets, shower heads, water fountains), and water-using devices (dishwashers, ice machines)
o Remove any potential cross connections, such as hoses connected to spigots, to prevent backflow into plumbing systems
o Remove aerators when possible
• Flush the entire building
o Flush cold water lines before hot water lines
o Flush the building zone by zone, beginning where the water enters the building and moving outward towards the distal ends
o Flushing time will vary based on building size; a temperature change or chlorine smell may be used as indicators that fresh water has reached all fixtures within the building
• Clean faucets, shower heads, and other fixtures
• Inspect and conduct necessary maintenance on mechanical equipment such as water heaters, boilers, storage tanks, backflow prevention devices, etc. using manufacturer’s instructions
• Consider developing an ongoing water management plan to maintain high quality water at all times

For more information on building water systems and flushing, please visit the CDC website.
