Written by on

  • Pennsylvania will be strengthening its mask mandate after a spike in COVID-19 cases through the state, specifically in Philadelphia. In the city, Mayor Kenny announced yesterday that the city will begin undergoing more restrictions to businesses, restaurants, and public places to combat the rise of the virus. This includes businesses going back to working from home, gyms closing, and public gatherings either ending altogether or being very limited.
  • President Trump has announced that he has ordered the Pentagon to begin removing troops from Afganistan and Iraq. The decision comes after Joe Biden became President-Elect, with Trump fighting the results with lawsuits and investigations in several states. An estimated 2,500 troops will be removed to reduce military presence in the two countries and reduce the military budget.
