CDC Updates Guidance: Indoor Masks in Some Areas; Upper Moreland Fire; Murder-For-Hire Stopped

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated some of its guidance regarding masking on Tuesday, 7/27. Officials now recommend that fully vaccinated people return to wearing masks indoors in those parts of the country that are experiencing high COVID-19 transmission rates. See the maps of transmission rates below. They are also recommending that all teachers, staff, and students in grade schools wear masks in school this fall. The new guidance is a result of rising coronavirus cases due to the highly contagious delta variant. Vaccination is the best way to fight the virus and suppress the development of any additional variants.

Officials in Montgomery County are investigating after a house fire in Upper Moreland on Tuesday evening, 7/27. It happened around 8 p.m. on the 3300 block of Masons Mill Road. Responding fire crews were able to bring the fire under control quickly. No one was home at the time and no one was injured. Police were calling it a crime scene. It is believed they are determining if the fire was intentionally set.

Federal and local authorities worked together to stop a murder-for-hire plot in Philadelphia this month. Acting United States Attorney Jennifer Arbittier announced the arrest of 47-year-old Darnell Jackson of Southwest Philadelphia at a press conference on Monday, 7/26. He is charged with murder-for-hire and possession of ammunition by a convicted felon. The FBI and Philadelphia Police investigated the case. Jackson agreed to pay $5,500 to a 'hit man' to kill a drug rival. The 'hit man' happened to be a confidential informant for the authorities and recorded all of their conversations. Last week, 7/21, the 'hit man' called to tell Jackson it was 'done' and wanted to meet to get paid. Police intercepted Jackson who had a loaded ghost gun, but no money. Police believe he was going to kill the 'hit man.' If convicted, he would get 10 years for each charge. This collaboration was part of the US Attorney's ‘All Hands on Deck’ initiative.
