11 Bucks Co. COVID-19 Cases Tied to Shore; 3 Dead in Shootings; ShopRite Reopening; Joe Gale Protest

Bucks County health officials have traced 11 of 33 new coronavirus cases reported on Saturday, 6/6, to the Jersey Shore. Contact tracing has determined that those 11 individuals had contact with a New Jersey resident who had attended multiple gatherings at New Jersey beach houses over the past two weeks. The dates and locations of those gatherings were not released. There could be an increase in those cases among family members of the infected. "This is exactly why we can't let our guard down now, even if it feels 'safe' to be at the beach. One unlucky exposure can lead to a large cascade of cases down the line. We want everyone to enjoy the warmer weather and have fun, but let's keep in mind that COVID is still circulating in the community at baseline levels," Dr. David Damsker, director of the Bucks County Health Department, said.

Three separate shootings leave 3 dead and 1 injured in Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon, 6/7. The first happened around 1:15 p.m. on the 800 block of North 39th Street in Mantua. A 25-year-old man was shot multiple times and was pronounced dead at the scene. The second happened around 3:45 p.m. on South Ruby Street in West Philadelphia. A 42-year-old man was shot five times - twice in his abdomen, twice in his chest, and once in his jaw. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The third happened around 6:45 p.m. on the 2300 block of West Berks Street in North Philadelphia. A 21-year-old man was shot once in the chest and once in the back. He was taken to Temple University Hospital where he was pronounced dead. A 23-year-old man was shot in the left bicep. He was also taken to Temple and is in stable condition. There have not been any arrests in any of these shootings.

The ShopRite at 52nd Street and Parkside Ave that had been looted for 15 hours straight last weekend reopened to the public on Sunday, 6/7, after being closed for one week. The store had been picked clean and damaged during violent demonstrations a week ago. It took 300 community members and staff to ready the store to resume operations. Community members expressed their gratitude for having their local grocery store return. "Our family is deeply committed to these communities and would not walk away and leave these neighborhoods without a supermarket to rely on," said Jeff Brown, president & CEO of Brown's Super Stores that operates these stores. "We know how the neighborhoods depend on us for their livelihood, not only for food, but also for jobs and other assistance"

Protestors demonstrated in front of Montgomery County Commissioner Joe Gale's residence in Plymouth Meeting on Sunday afternoon, 6/7, calling on him to resign. Gale published a press statement last week, Monday, 6/1, denouncing violent demonstrations and riots that had occurred in Philadelphia over the previous weekend. In the statement, he likened Black Lives Matter to a radical left-wing hate group, which many people have taken issue with. Philadelphia 76er Tobias Harris has called for Gale to resign. Protestors in Norristown last week asked the commissioner to step down. Fellow commissioners, Chairwoman Valerie Arkoosh and Vice Chairman Kenneth Lawrence, have censured him for using county letterhead to publish his statement. Gale has said that he is not going anywhere.
