Philly Lifts Last Restrictions Friday; Small Earthquake in NJ; NJ Marine Recruit Dies in Training

Philadelphia officials announced on Wednesday, 6/9, that the city is ready to drop the final two 'Safer-at-Home' coronavirus COVID-19 restrictions. As of 12:01 a.m. on Friday, June 11, the city will lift the indoor mask mandate and remove the 11 p.m. last call for restaurants. Vaccinated and non-vaccinated people will no longer be required to wears masks inside, however, it is strongly recommended that non-vaxxed people still wear them indoors. Masks are still required in healthcare institutions, congregate facilities, on public transportation and indoor schools, camps and early childhood education. Low cases counts and vaccination numbers are the motivation for lifting these final restrictions.

"For nearly fifteen months, the City of Philadelphia has had restrictions in place to protect each other, and I have no doubt that these restrictions saved countless lives," Mayor Jim Kenney said. "But Friday will be a day that we've all been looking forward to: getting back to doing the things that we love. Thanks to the more than two-thirds of adults who've been vaccinated already, we can finally do the things that we’ve missed doing for the last year. I urge everyone who has not been vaccinated to join the more than 800,000 fellow Philadelphians so we can continue to move forward from the pandemic."

"Due to the lowest new case counts that we've seen since the start of the pandemic, we are now excited to lift the last of the Safer-at-Home restrictions," Acting Health Commissioner Dr. Cheryl Bettigole said. "Lifting the requirement for vaccinated people to wear masks indoors doesn't mean that we are totally past COVID-19. Dozens of Philadelphians are still being diagnosed with COVID-19 every day, which means that more of us still need to get vaccinated."

A small earthquake was recorded in Ocean County, New Jersey on Wednesday morning, 6/9. It happened at 7:52 a.m. just south of Tuckerton. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) says it was a magnitude 2.4 at a depth of 3 miles. No reports of injuries or damage, but some people reported feeling the quake.

A 19-year-old Marine Corps recruit from New Jersey died Friday, 6/4, during the final strenuous exercise at the 13-week training course at South Carolina's Parris Island. Pfc. Dalton Beals of Pennsville, NJ, passed away during the exercise called "The Crucible," which is the final test of training. He was a 2020 graduate of Pennsville Memorial High School. "On Friday, June 4th, Private First Class Dalton Beals passed away during the conduct of The Crucible with the new Marines of Echo Company. Our deepest condolences go out to Dalton's family and to the Marines and staff of Echo Company. The cause of death is currently under investigation." The Crucible lasts 54 hours. Recruits will march about 40 miles, get little sleep and food, and complete many team building tasks. It "validates the physical, mental and moral training they've endured throughout recruit training."

Philadelphia Phillies long-time public address announcer Dan Baker has returned to the booth at Citizens Bank Park after a health scare last year. Doctors discovered a cancerous tumor in his sinus. It took a 24-hour surgery to remove. Complications from an infection kept him in the hospital for six weeks. 74-year-old Baker has been the Phillies announcer since 1972 and doesn't plan on retiring anytime soon. He is the current longest tenured announcer in MLB. He also is announcer for Drexel Men's Basketball and was the Philadelphia Eagles announcer from 1985-2014.
