Health Inspectors To Watch Bucks Co. Bars On July 4 Weekend

BUCKS COUNTY, PA — Bucks County health department workers will be out in bars and restaurants that serve booze over the 4th of July weekend, making sure drinking establishments are complying with social distancing requirements.

“The Fourth of July, of course … people are used to celebrating and having a good time,” Dr. David Damsker, director of the Bucks County Department of Health, said Friday. “Bars are one of the places that can be overwhelmed with people who won’t be social distancing and won’t be wearing masks.”

Damsker’s comments came as Pennsylvania reported its highest single-day total of new coronavirus cases in six weeks. There were 832 new positive cases of the virus reported in the state on Thursday — the highest new case total since May 20.

Damsker said Bucks County has had “pretty good compliance” from bars since they were allowed to let patrons back inside last week,

Apple’s virtual Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday was, itself, a sign of the times.

Like all conferences in the coronavirus era, the WWDC keynote morphed into an online-only affair with lone speakers presenting in socially distant productions, as the end credits claimed. But the announcements were no less jam-packed. The moves extend across the Apple universe, bringing changes to the individual software platforms for the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac computers, while also tying them closer together.

Apple Watch help with handwashing and a few other things you need to know

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, which kicked off with a keynote by CEO Tim Cook on Monday, had a different vibe.

The keynote, which typically serves as a venue for Apple to highlight its latest iOS operating system, was done online only, due to crowd restrictions to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

Cook & Co. unveiled new software updates for iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches and Mac computers – public betas for those will begin in July with final software versions available this fall, Cook said.

The Apple CEO also announced that Apple would begin making its own processors for Macs. The move from Intel chips will make for “a huge leap forward” for Mac computers, he said.

Apple expects to ship the first Mac with an Apple processor by the end of the year, with the transition to all Apple processor-based Macs to take about two years.
