To reopen our economy to its maximum potential, we will need to boost our ability to contain this highly transmissible virus,” Governor Wolf said. “The Commonwealth Civilian Coronavirus Corps will serve as a public service program that will expand our ability to conduct contact tracing and testing and mobilize Pennsylvanians to contain COVID-19.”The Wolf Administration’s continued measured and careful efforts to reopen Pennsylvania will depend on our ability to expand the availability of COVID-19 testing and develop a robust infrastructure to conduct surveillance and contact tracing. This work will allow Pennsylvanians to effectively monitor and respond to new cases and quantify mitigation efforts. It will help our phased reopening efforts while ensuring that the health care system does not become overwhelmed and that the transmission of disease continues to slow.As Pennsylvania plans to ramp up these efforts in the coming months, the Commonwealth Civilian Coronavirus Corps would bring these efforts to fruition by: May 06, 2020 SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Pennsylvania’s existing testing and contact tracing initiatives;Leveraging additional resources to fund testing and contact tracing initiatives;Exploring creative ways to recruit experienced Pennsylvanians with health care and public health experience to support this initiative; andCoordinating existing resources deployed by the commonwealth, including community health nurses and county health departments who are currently conducting testing and contact tracing throughout the state.The Commonwealth Civilian Coronavirus Corps will also provide for a unique opportunity for Pennsylvania to recruit and train COVID-19-impacted dislocated and unemployed workers into public service for contact tracing roles, which would address Pennsylvania’s health and economic needs.To foster this new workforce, the Commonwealth Civilian Coronavirus Corps would:Engage partners in the workforce development system, existing allied health training programs, and AmeriCorps programs to build and strengthen a public health workforce across the commonwealth;Leverage existing workforce development resources to recruit, train, and connect the public health workforce with employment opportunities; andEngage public health and health care employers to connect trained workers with long-term career opportunities.“We have all made many sacrifices throughout this crisis and all we share a desire to move forward toward a healthier, safer and more prosperous future,” Governor Wolf said. “Through this public service initiative, Pennsylvanians will have opportunities in the months ahead to join a collective effort to ensure that we emerge from this pandemic a stronger commonwealth.”View this information in Spanish.

Bask Homes director Peter Andersen, said home buyers were no longer settling for basic homes and instead were now focusing on liveable aspects, like larger master suites and separate living areas, without compromising on privacy or finances.“It all comes down to good architectural design,” Mr Andersen said. “People are genuinely surprised when they come and see what can be built with a design that is specifically for that block and that there really isn’t a compromise on anything.” Stockland regional manager David Laner said home designs were constantly evolving to suit modern lifestyles and it was exciting to see the latest trends on show at the Village. Vale Display Village has opened at Holmview, Logan, featuring seven Queensland builders.BUYERS looking for more bang for their buck might be in luck with Stockland’s new display village at Holmview promising life’s little luxuries but on a first-home owner budget.The village includes seven homes with all including luxuries not usually found in the first-home buyer market, such as butler’s pantries, multiple living spaces and large outdoor areas.Officially opened last month, the Vale Display Village at Holmview features homes from Queensland builders including Metricon, Ausmar Homes, Bask Homes, Integra Homes, Neptune Homes, Colossal Homes and DeKor Homes.

first_imgThe U.S.-Mexico Commission for Educational and Cultural Exchange, has partnered with the Price School of Public Policy to introduce a new Mexican scholar-in-residence program focusing on binational energy policy coordination in Mexico and California. This would allow a selected scholar to conduct research and policy forums in a four-month residency in conjunction with Price in Sacramento.Dean of USC Price and H. C. Erwin and Ione L. Piper Chair Jack Knott said the collaboration will seek to explore renewable energy sources while strengthening the international partnership and leadership, according to a press release.“Historic reforms in the area of energy policy by the government of Mexico and the state of California have created an extraordinary opportunity to explore cross-border collaboration, particularly in the area of renewable energy sources, and strengthen our partnership and global leadership in this area,” Knott told USC News earlier this month.The program will allow for communication on energy policy on a national level and plans to instigate student response.“One of the things we look forward to doing once this person is confirmed: We plan to reach out and do a joint panel, get students involved,” said Mario Enriquez, a representative from the USC Price Latino Student Association.Enriquez praised the program for focusing on these types of policies and stresses how students in his organization can broaden their involvement in and knowledge of binational energy policies.The program primarily seeks to bridge academic researchers in California and Mexico, increase student collaboration and connect these students to policymakers, according to Director of USC Mexico Angela McCracken.“They are going to bring in a Mexican perspective … They are going to bring in someone that has a bilateral perspective on U.S.-Mexico studies, an expertise,” McCracken said.McCracken lauded the strategic location of Price Sacramento while bringing attention to the historical relevance of the California-Mexico relationship.“Sacramento is the perfect place. The Price Center in Sacramento has a long history … of hosting delegations for Mexico in Sacramento in binational policy forum,” McCracken said.Both institutions have collaborated over the years, and McCracken said that the organization recognized what needed to be addressed and created an opportunity to fulfill that need. Improving the relationship between Los Angeles and Mexico has included involvement from people with USC ties in the past, such as Carlos M. Sada, the consul general of Mexico in Los Angeles who has had with extensive experience with Price over the years.Sada was paramount to creating this program, along with Janet Denhardt, director of Price in Sacramento, and Hazel Blackmore, the executive director of COMEXUS.Mexico’s policy shifted in 2013 from state-owned energy sector to allowing private-sector participation.McCracken said that the energy reform being implemented in Mexico parallels the environmentally protective, sustainable energy policy being developed in California.“The idea is both California and Mexico are dealing with the same problems related to energy in different contexts and in a transformative time. So they both can learn, one from the other,” McCracken said.last_img read more
