Philly Police All Get Masks to Wear; Sanders Drops Out of Race; Acme Limiting Customers in Stores

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw announced on Wednesday that all 6,500 police officers have been instructed to wear a mask while on duty. Officers have been issued a cloth mask with a bag to store it. Outlaw wrote in a memo to officers, "The purpose of providing these masks is to help prevent spreading the COVID-19 virus among our coworkers. Many who have the virus have no signs or symptoms." The FOP and the city are continuously working to make sure officers have a supply of other protective equipment such as gloves and hand sanitizer. Officers have also been instructed to place a mask over anyone they have arrested and are bringing in for booking.

Senator Bernie Sanders (D, VT) has ended his bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president. By suspending his campaign, Sanders opens up the path for former Vice President Joe Biden to take the nomination. The Democratic party recently moved their convention to August. At one time there had been a diverse field of 25 candidates. Last month, Biden announced during a televised debate that he would choose a woman as his running mate. He could choose any of the women who also ran for president, or look elsewhere in the party such as Stacey Abrams of Georgia.

Acme Markets is only allowing 20% of capacity into its stores at any one time. "The health and safety of our customers, associates and their families is our top priority," said Jim Perkins, President of ACME, in a statement. "We believe this is an important step to help reinforce proper social distancing." You'll also find decals and markings on the floors at checkout and other areas like the deli, meat, seafood, and pharmacy showing 6 foot spaces. Plexiglass barriers have been installed at the checkouts to protect customers and cashiers. Stores have hours for seniors and high-risk individuals Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
