May 8 was the initial reopening of some businesses during the yellow phase of COVID-19 guidelines. Remaining closed are fitness and gyms, massage therapy, hair salons and barbershops. The Lycoming Mall did not reopen as previously anticipated because authorities deemed mall businesses as "indoor recreation," unless a store has a separate outdoor entrance; Dick's Sporting Goods and BAM! book store are open; Burlington Coat Factory is not. Many restaurants and establishments are welcoming customers by offering take-out and curbside service. Please remember to support the heart of this publication-our advertisers-who make each issue available to our readers.

As of Sunday Lycoming County has had 131 positive cases to date, up four from Saturday. PA is reporting 62 residents and 10 staff cases in three nursing/personal care homes in Lycoming County.

Meanwhile, whether the Muncy Community Pool will open for the season remains unknown, as communication is ongoing between the organization's trustees, the PA Department of Health and CDC guidelines for when the pool will be allowed to open.
