Upper Darby Sanitation Dept Quarantine; Delaware Sports Postponed; Wage Equity Ordinance Starts 9/1

Due to a coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, Upper Darby has decided to quarantine its entire sanitation department for two weeks. "Due to a recent outbreak in the sanitation division, and in accordance with the guidance from the governor and the CDC, we've made the joint decision to quarantine the entire sanitation division for two weeks," said Mayor Barbarann Keffer. "The decision was not made lightly, but it was made in the best interest of our township workforce and our township residents. It is very important that everyone understand that the health and safety of our township employees and residents is our primary concern." Keffer said that the township is working on a contingency plan. Details will be announced on Monday. Otherwise, regular trash pick-up will resume with a new schedule on Monday, August 24. It was not specified how many employees were impacted.

The Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association voted on Thursday, 8/6, to postpone high school sports until at least December. Sports will resume with the winter sports season from from December to February. Fall sports will be played from February to April. Spring sports will be played from April to June. All plans are contingent on coronavirus COVID-19 cases. Many fall sports have begun to train and condition under social distancing guidelines. The DIAA says that can continue into the fall, but there will not be any competition.

The City of Philadelphia will begin enforcing the Wage Equity Ordinance starting September 1. The ordinance was signed into law in 2017 and has passed through the U.S. Court of Appeals after being challenged. The law prevents employers from asking job applicants for their salary history or for using that salary history to set wages. The ordinance should help women and people of color close the wage gap. "Bans on salary history inquiries are a critical component of the equal pay movement and Philadelphia's law was seemingly the national test case. With the legal proceedings completely behind us now and an enforcement date set, job applicants in Philadelphia will soon begin to reap the benefits of the Wage Equity Ordinance," said City Solicitor Marcel Pratt.
