Restrictions extend to Jan. 4


Last updated 12/21/2020 at 8:09pm

Mill Creek's Town Center already had some outdoor seating as indoor dining bans were implemented in the spring and again in November. Indoor dining bans and other restrictions were extended through Jan. 4 to rein in COVID-19 infection rates. The increase in cases has surpassed a spike this spring, and officials are guarding against overextension of hospital resources.

Meanwhile, the FDA is preparing for review of a vaccine that is recommended for approval. If the Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA vaccine is approved by the FDA, it could end the pandemic sometime in 2021. Approval is expected. The vaccine is in-use in other nations. It was tested as a preventative vaccine, so officials still advise action to avoid viral exposure, such as social distancing, masks and hand-washing, prior to availability of the vaccine. Supplies will be limited and vaccination practice will be phased in with the bulk of the public expected to gain access within nine months of approval, if all goes as planned.
