Wolf Administration Highlights Increased Efforts to Expand COVID-19 Testing Availability

first_img August 06, 2020 Press Release,  Public Health Governor Tom Wolf and Pennsylvania Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine today highlighted ongoing efforts to expand testing across Pennsylvania to ensure that every Pennsylvanian who wants a test can get one.“If we want to mitigate the spread of this very contagious virus, we must continue to understand how it’s impacting Pennsylvania. Most importantly, improving access to testing helps Pennsylvanians who want and need to test for COVID-19,” Gov. Wolf said. “Testing also provides us with critical data to understand where the disease is in our communities so that we can take the necessary proactive measures to stop the spread and continue to protect the public.”The Wolf Administration continues to work to further increase testing in Pennsylvania. This includes partnerships in place with Walmart and Quest Diagnostics, which provide direct access in many communities, including rural areas.The administration also continues to work with laboratories across the state in order to enhance testing capacity in Pennsylvania, particularly as we see significant national delays in receiving test results due to other states experiencing major case increases.“In Pennsylvania, we are committed to ensuring that testing is accessible, available and adaptable,” Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said. “Through working with our partners, including Walmart and Quest Diagnostics, we are helping to ensure that anyone who needs to get tested for COVID-19 in Pennsylvania can get tested. Testing, along with wearing a mask, washing your hands, maintaining social distancing and contact tracing are essential tools to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania.”Nine drive-thru Walmart testing sites launched on Aug. 5. These nine new sites are in addition to existing Walmart drive-thru sites in Clarion, State College, New Castle and Edinboro.“Walmart is happy to assist Governor Wolf with reliable timely COVID-19 tests via a convenient drive thru,” said Jamie Reilly, Walmart regional health and wellness director.Pennsylvania has conducted the ninth highest total number of tests for COVID-19 in the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 1.6 million tests have been completed, which equates to 13 percent of the Pennsylvania population.At the height of the first wave in April, statewide testing capacity was limited to under 8,000 tests per day. Pennsylvania is now averaging more than 22,000 test results per day, as of Saturday, Aug. 1, and is testing about 4 percent of the population each month.The most updated testing sites and information is available at the Department of Health. Testing sites continue to be added.For the updated commonwealth map of testing sites, visit Pennsylvania COVID-19 Viral Testing Sites.Ver esta página en español.

JUDGE ORDERS BAKER TO PAY OUT €160 OVER ‘MEASLES’ WEDDING CAKE

first_imgJudge Paul KellyA JUDGE has ordered a baker to hand back €160 to a couple over a wedding cake.Judge Paul Kelly made the ruling at the small claims court in Letterkenny after the mother of the groom said the cake she ordered was completely different from the one she received. The judge commented that it was “hugely unfortunate” that the parties in the dispute hadn’t settled it before coming to court.The court heard that the dispute arose over a wedding in Dublin last July.The mother of the groom had given a picture of the cake she wanted to the baker.It was collected in Donegal and taken to Dublin by another relative two days before the big day.But the mother of the groom said she was horrified when she saw the cake; edible gold petals she had asked for were a palish yellow.“It (the cake) looked like a bowler hat with measles,” she told Judge Kelly.Due to the error, the woman said she missed a tour of the Guinness Brewery and the wedding rehearsal with relatives of her new daughter-in-law who had arrived in the capital from north America.Examining photographs of the cake which was ordered and pictures of the actual cake, Judge Kelly noted there was “a very substantial difference”.The baker however handed in the dyes she used for the cake; saying the directions on colours were unclear.“That’s what I see as gold,” she said.The mother of the bride said the cake wasn’t used at the wedding as a result of its appearance.Judge Kelly agreed it wasn’t the cake she had asked for and ordered the baker to reimburse the woman for €160.JUDGE ORDERS BAKER TO PAY OUT €160 OVER ‘MEASLES’ WEDDING CAKE was last modified: January 11th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
