What's the penalty for exceeding the government's limit on people in a private residence? A fine? Prison time? Just wondering...

How pissed is Wolf right now that Kenney beat him to new restrictions?  The chance of us skiing in PA this winter has dropped to 50/50

It will be interesting to see what happens with my offices reopening the office plans. As of now, we are still planning to open July 13th with some strict guidelines in place but with numbers on the r

I think we're still looking good for skiing.  Levine just said today that we're not going back to the color coded restrictions, but that they would focus on certain types of businesses.  Restaurants and gyms are fucked, but skiing should be okay.

Sure they do if it’s contributing to a public health emergency.  

This is where I say:

TP4: celebrating/rioting/protesting/looting amongst tens of thousands is safe, but seeing relatives isn’t?

Doug: they were wearing masks

TP4: they were not wearing masks

and it goes on.  We’ve had this argument a lot lol

Yup we just need some cold..trending back to normal temperatures around thanksgiving.  Maybe @saltyant can burn one of his jock straps as a sacrifice to the snow gods.  A goat would work as well

LOL at making a fuss over restrictions in Philadelphia, when the restrictions in Phila apply to like 3% of the forum members.  

I dont think we are heading to lockdowns, but i do believe like NMSKI said, sorry for the bars and gyms to be taking the hit, but its better to be targeting the hot spots where the increase in cases are coming from.  

As far as the large private gatherings?  well hopefully people will do the right thing.  But there are too many people in the world "that cant be told what to do".  

the lastest vaccines show alot of promise.  This is probably worth arguing over.

To me, it's really not a big deal in the City. My life since March has basically been these exact guidelines. If you've been a half decent human who cares about friends, family, strangers, grandparents, the US, the world, these new guidelines starting Friday really don't make a huge impact.

They are banning thanksgiving celebrations in private homes lolololol

goodbye freedom!

The blanket prohibition on indoor gatherings of any kind - everything from holiday parties and football gatherings to baby showers and brunches - will not be enforced, city officials acknowledged. Farley said the city is seeking voluntary compliance, saying the virus is rampant and "spreading a little bit everywhere," including at small social gatherings.

There's also the "No shouting fire in a crowded theatre" restriction on freedom of speech. The right to peacefully assemble isn't an absolute and can be restricted - you don't typically complain about fire code limits in municipal buildings, but that's exactly the same restriction that's being applied here - it's unsafe to have a gathering larger than X, because there's a chance something might happen and hurt people at a larger gathering.

As for cold weather, bring it on. Last year Blue was open by now.

I wonder if a limit to outdoor venues will limit ski resort capacity...
