On Monday, Philadelphia officials announced new restrictions in light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

With record-breaking case numbers almost daily, Philadelphia City and Department of Public Health officials announced the changes to restrictions on businesses, events and gatherings, and other activities to help flatten the epidemic curve, prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed, and reduce the number of COVID-19 deaths, according to information from the City of Philadelphia.

The new “Safer at Home” restrictions will be effective beginning Friday, Nov. 20 through Jan. 1, 2021, although an extension of these restrictions and/or the implementation of additional restrictions is possible depending on trends in the spread of coronavirus in the city.

Due to the recent Department of Public Health updates and the continued coronavirus spikes, the Harvest Moon giveaway has been canceled. The Enterprise Center and the Walnut Hill Community Association would love to put smiles on the children’s faces this time of the year but realize safety is first.  Hopefully, next year will be different.  Thank you to all who stepped up to volunteer and help out with the Harvest Moon giveaway.
