Nov. 30th Press Release

Lamont McClure, the Department of Community and Economic Development, Emergency Management Services and Lehigh Valley Hospital-Coordinated Health Allentown Hospital (LVH-CHA) announce a new schedule for the drive-through testing center at 3100 Emrick Boulevard, Bethlehem Township which will begin Monday, November 30, 2020. Hours of Operation will now be Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 9:00AM – 4:00PM, Tuesday/Thursday from 11:00AM – 6:00PM and Saturday from 9:00AM – 12:00PM.

“The virus is still active in our area and I encourage people to get tested for COVID-19 if they begin showing symptoms,” says Lamont McClure. “Contact tracing, social distancing and wearing a mask are all critical to preventing transmission of the virus.”

A Physician’s order is not be required but, to be eligible for testing, individuals must report or display one or more CDC-recognized symptoms of COVID-19: fever, dry cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat or loss of taste and/or smell. The drive-through site is open to everyone, but only residents of Northampton County will have the cost of testing covered by the County if they do not have health coverage. All testing will be through HNL Lab Medicine unless insurance requires an alternate laboratory. Participants should bring a photo ID and their insurance card, if they have one, with them to the testing site.

'Twas the night before Shop Small Saturday, and all through #bangorpa the stores were preparing to delight shoppers and browsers alike.
Come on downtown to be part of the buzz, but distance and masks up because,
We need to be safe this holiday season. You and your family are the reason.

Anna Henning Chocolates on Broadway 🥴

my wife and I just moved right down the road from chocolates on Broadway and everytime we go past it, it never seems like they're open

Still a pretty little town of Bangor! Now it’s festive!

They always decorate so pretty for every holiday 😍.

What time?

Being honest, this town is shitty.

Need more decorations put up!

Thank you to Rescue fire co for helping The HUB and Family Life Community Church put up the annual Christmas lights in Founders Park last night. You are all appreciated...

Gov. Wolf has issued new guidelines as a result of the increase in positivity in our communities. In his words, “We are in a very dangerous situation, and we need to work together to stop the spread of COVID-19 right now because if we give in to the virus, we will lose many more Pennsylvanians. And that is unacceptable.” Masks up #BangorPA For more information see www.governor.pa.gov/newsroom/as-covid-19-cases-reach-critical-levels-wolf-admin-announces-new-mit... ... See MoreSee Less

Here are some new suggestions in light of COVID-19 and some general reminders to make our Borough trick-or-treat Saturday from 2-5 safer for EVERYONE.
🎃Avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters. Give out treats outdoors, if possible. Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take.

💡Make sure walkways, stairs and paths are cleared and lit if possible.

👻Wash hands before handling treats.

😷Wear a mask. Make your cloth mask part of your costume. A costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth mask. Do NOT wear a costume mask over a cloth mask. It can make breathing more difficult.
Masks should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing

🤡------🤠Stay at least 6 feet away from others who do not live with you
Indoors and outdoors, you are more likely to get or spread COVID-19 when you are in close contact with others.

🖐Bring hand sanitizer with you and use it after touching objects or other people.

👀Parents: supervise young children under age 12 for trick-or-treating. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, tell them to stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.

🚶‍♂️Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.

🧼Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you get home and before you eat any treats.

✨Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors.
Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.

🚗DRIVERS:
⚠Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.
⚠Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.
⚠Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.
