On June 5th, Delaware County transitioned to the yellow phase of reopening. According to Pennsylvania's official process for reopening,the yellow phase lifts the most severe restrictions, including the stay at home order. However, other mitigation efforts remain in place as more of the economy begins to reopen. Restrictions are adjusted as necessary based on public health indicators.
After a county transitions to the yellow phase, that county will be closely monitored for increased risk (such as significant outbreaks). If overall risk remains mitigated for fourteen days, the county will transition to the green phase. The green phase eases most restrictions by lifting the stay at home and business closure orders, and allows the economy to strategically reopen while continuing to prioritize public health.
According to Delaware County, residents are urged during the yellow phase to adhere to the same guidance we have followed all along, including social distancing and wearing a mask. “Some, in their eagerness to return to normalcy, may begin to disregard the guidance. Many may want to gather with their friends and family at barbeques and pools this Memorial Day weekend,” said Delaware County Councilman Kevin Madden. “Now is not the time to let our guards down. We are urging residents to stay the course so we can reach and stay in the yellow phase and then reach the green phase as quickly as possible.”
In addition, Delaware County has announced the formation of the ReOpen Delco Task Force. The task force, composed of business leaders and community stakeholders, will be working to help Delaware County businesses, organizations, and residents navigate the safe transition into the yellow phase and eventually the green phase. The website provides resources for businesses and residents about the yellow phase of reopening.
