This new mandate is encouraged by the CDC for most individuals, and Publix is following the CDC guidelines.The Florida-based store is also re-emphasizing the CDC’s recommendation to keep six feet of distance from other people in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

In addition, Publix managers continue to have the discretion to limit the number of shoppers in a store at one time.As the positive COVID-19 numbers continue to persist, they are asking shoppers to please shop alone, if possible, and to consider two additional ways to keep each other safe: cleaning your reusable bags after each shopping excursion, and utilizing contactless payment options.Get in the habit: Clean your bags after every trip.Publix explains that, while certainly we’re all being more cautious these days, it’s always been important to take good care of the bags used to carry food.

Hand wash in warm water with soap and rinse. Turn inside out and line dry. Do this after every shopping trip.Store bags in a clean, cool location – not in the car.Clean areas where you unload reusable bags, such as the kitchen counter or table.Do not use reusable grocery bags for other purposes; designate them just for groceries.At the StoreBefore placing meat, poultry, or fish in your reusable bag, place those items in the disposable plastic bags conveniently located in those departments.Contactless pay optionsPublix rolled out contactless pay to all its stores on April 4, including GreenWise Market. This is one more measure they took to protect the health and well-being of its customers and associates during the coronavirus pandemic, and they are encouraging customers to utilize this option.A contactless payment is made by placing a smartphone or contactless pay-enabled credit or debit card near a contactless-enabled device, rather than swiping or inserting a card into the PIN pad. The most commonly known forms of contactless payments are Apple Pay®, Google Pay™ and Samsung Pay®.This digital payment method is in addition to the existing mobile pay option through the Publix app, which customers can still use to finalize their purchases.Click here for FAQ on Publix contactless pay options.

Governor Wolf Urges Congress to Vote No on Tax Reforms that Prioritize the Wealthy Over the Middle-Class
Governor Wolf Urges Congress to Vote No on Tax Reforms that Prioritize the Wealthy Over the Middle-Class Economy, National Issues Harrisburg, PA – In a letter to Pennsylvania’s congressional delegation, Governor Tom Wolf again expressed concern over the current tax bill, citing its prioritization of the uber-wealthy over its support of the middle-class as previously promised. The governor urged Congress to vote no on the current bill, which enacts permanent tax cuts for large corporations and increases the tax burden on Pennsylvania’s homeowners and middle-class.“This bill is bad policy and a giveaway to the uber-wealthy and corporations,” Governor Wolf said. “I am urging Congress to vote no and work on real tax reform that will benefit the middle-class. Further, I am gravely concerned about how the trillion dollar deficit from this bill will be used to cut health care programs like Medicare and Medicaid.Read the full content of the letter to Congressional leaders below. You can also view the letter on Scribd and as a PDF.Dear Congressman:Several members of Pennsylvania’s Congressional delegation were in attendance in October when President Trump visited Harrisburg to talk about tax reform. In his speech, the President said that tax reform would be a “middle-class bill” and that the benefits would go to “the middle-class and not the highest earners.” The bill you will be voting on does not do that.There are clear winners and losers under this bill. A large corporation will see a permanent 14 percent tax cut while an individual making $40,000 will see their modest tax cut disappear by 2023. More than half of the tax cuts in this bill go to the top 1% while Pennsylvanians earning less than $75,000 will pay more in taxes by 2027. In total, 713,000 of our constituents will see a tax hike by 2027.This “middle-class” bill will raise the threshold to qualify for the estate tax, which benefits only the wealthiest 140 estates in the commonwealth. These 140 estates, all worth over $22 million will see a tax cut of $4.4 million. That $4.4 million could be used to provide 1100 Pennsylvania students a Pell Grant to make college more affordable.Homeowners who utilize the State and Local Tax (SALT) deduction will see their deduction capped under this bill. SALT ensures that Pennsylvania families won’t be taxed twice by the federal government on what they’ve already paid in state and local taxes. The majority of Pennsylvanians who use the deduction have an income under $100,000. These changes to the deduction will increase the tax burden on homeowners by as much as $1600 per year. The increased tax burden on homeowners may force our communities to make cuts to emergency services, infrastructure projects, and education.Pennsylvanians’ concerns with this bill are not limited to the changes to tax policy. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that repealing the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate would increase premiums an additional 10 percent each year. Pennsylvania would see an additional 500,000 uninsured individuals. My administration has worked to bring the commonwealth’s uninsured rate to the lowest on record. Eliminating the individual mandate is a step backwardsAccording to the Joint Committee on Taxation’s score the GOP tax plan will increase the deficit by $1.45 trillion over the next ten years. Without additional Congressional action, this bill will trigger an automatic $25 billion cut to Medicare next year, along with $125 billion in cuts to other programs such as farm subsidies, health prevention funds, and student loans. Earlier this month, Speaker Ryan announced that in 2018 the House of Representatives would work to cut Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and other entitlement programs that Pennsylvania families rely on. It is irresponsible to support a bill that adds over a trillion dollars to the deficit and then use concern over the deficit to make cut to vital programs that will hurt your most vulnerable constituents.This bill is bad policy. It is a giveaway to the uber-wealthy and corporations. I urge you to vote no and work on real tax reform that will benefit the middle-class.Sincerely,TOM WOLFGovernor12.19.17 Letter to Congress on Tax Reforms by Governor Tom Wolf on Scribd December 19, 2017 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter
Fewer top clubs should get automatic spots in the lucrative group stage of the Champions League, the umbrella organisation representing Europe’s domestic leagues (EPFL) said on Tuesday.EPFL Chairman Lars-Christer Olsson said he wanted more teams from the biggest leagues to play their way through the qualifying competition instead.European soccer body UEFA last year announced that it would give more slots to teams from the four biggest leagues, effectively England, Spain, Germany and Italy, while cutting those allocated to sides from smaller countries. Those changes will come into effect for the 2018-21 cycle but Olsson told reporters he was already looking ahead to 2021-24 when he was hoping to persuade UEFA to do an about-turn.“There is a common view among the leagues that there should be less clubs directly qualified (for the group stage) because qualification for the Champions League should mean more and give more opportunities for more teams to qualify,” he said.The Swede added that the format to be introduced next year would “widen the gap between the rich ones and those who have less”.Olsson was speaking after EPFL reached an agreement with UEFA which would guarantee it a part in future decision-making on matters like competition structure and match scheduling.Olsson said that UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin, elected last year, is “obviously looking for a bigger inclusion of stakeholders than in the past and we have a totally different climate now”.He said both parties had agreed about the dangers of a handful of clubs dominating European competition.“We have agreed that we are both going to work to develop and enhance the competitive balance, including in domestic competitions,” he said. “We are convinced that keeping competitive balance is necessary to keep the interest of the fans and make competitions more interesting.”Olsson said that there was no chance of Champions League knockout stage matches being played on Saturday nights instead of midweek, which French media reports said last week had been proposed by some clubs.“As far as I can understand, the international club matches should be played in midweek apart from the final.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
