ORIGINALLY WE WERE TOLD BY THE GOVERNMENT AND THE CDC THAT WEARING A FACEMASK WAS ONLY NECESSARY IF YOU WERE SICK, TO PREVENT SPREADING INFECTION. NOW THAT DIRECTIVE IS BEING RE-EVALUATED BECAUSE SO MANY ASYMPTOMATIC PEOPLE ARE STILL OUT AND ABOUT. SO WE MAY SEE A RECOMMENDATION SOON THAT EVERYONE SHOULD BE WEARING A MASK. THAT BEING SAID, KEEP IN MIND THERE’S ALREADY A SEVERE SHORTAGE OF SUPPLIES FOR FRONT LINE MEDICAL STAFF THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.

SEVERAL PHOTOS HAVE SURFACED OF MAIN CHARACTERS FROM NETFLIX’S TIGER KING WITH BRITNEY SPEARS. BUT WHILE IT’S TRUE DOC ANTLE WRANGLED A TIGER FOR ONE OF BRITNEY’S MOST FAMOUS PERFORMANCES, A REPRESENTATIVE FOR CAROL BASKIN SAYS CAROL WAS NOT THE WOMAN SITTING NEXT TO BRITNEY IN A DIFFERENT PHOTO.

MONTGOMERY COUNTRY HAS A UNIQUE COVID-19 PREDICAMENT WHEN IT COMES TO THE LIMERICK POWER PLANT. ABOUT 1800 NEW WORKERS WERE HIRED BY EXELON WHO RUNS THE PLANT TO DO A SPRING REFUELING PROJECT. MONTGOMERY COUNTY ASKED EXELON TO HOLD OFF TO ENSURE ADEQUATE SOCIAL DISTANCING CONTINUES, BUT EXELON ARGUES THAT IF IT HAS TO SHUT DOWN THE PLANT, POWER WOULD BE LOST THROUGHOUT THE REGION.

THE APP OPEN TABLE HAS TWEAKED ITS SERVICE TO LET YOU SCHEDULE A TIME SLOT TO PICK UP TAKE-OUT OR SHOP AT A MARKET WHILE AVOIDING CROWDS. THE APP WILL ALERT USERS WHEN IT’S THEIR TURN TO SHOP OR PICK UP TAKE-OUT, AS MANY RETAILERS ARE HAVING TO STOP CUSTOMERS FROM COLLECTING IN LINES WAITING FOR ORDERS OR AT CHECKOUT.

JAMES CORDEN’S #HOMEFEST BROADCAST FEATURED A BUNCH OF ARTISTS AND ONE SEGMENT IN PARTICULAR IS GETTING SHARED A LOT. IT’S ACTOR/SINGER BEN PLATT ON ZOOM SINGING THE THEME FROM THE MUSICAL “DEAR EVAN HANSON” WHILE THE ENTIRE BROADWAY CAST JOINS IN REMOTELY. THE MUSICAL WAS SET TO BE IN PHILLY AT THE FOREST THEATER THIS MONTH SO HOPEFULLY THE DATES WILL BE RESCHEDULED.

MANY BUSINESS OWNERS ARE TRYING TO CAPITALIZE ON THE POPULARITY OF NETFLIX’S "TIGER KING" DOCUMENTARY AND WE’RE NOT MAD ABOUT IT. FISHTOWN’S EVIL GENIUS BEER CO. HAS CREATED A BREW INSPIRED BY CHARACTER CAROL BASKIN. THEY’RE CALLING IT, “FELT CUTE, MIGHT FEED MY HUSBAND TO A TIGER SOON, IDK.” IT’S AVAILABLE FOR PICKUP WHILE SUPPLIES LAST AND BE SURE TO TIP THE EVIL GENIUS BAR STAFF ON THEIR GOFUNDME VIRTUAL TIP JAR.

Now on tap: FELT CUTE, MIGHT FEED MY HUSBAND TO A TIGER SOON, IDK. . . A 4.2% pale ale hopped with Cascade, Simcoe, & Columbus. . . Lab exclusive. Take out only. $12.50 crowlers/$22.50 growlers. -- -- -- Buy three crowlers, get 10% off!

THE PRESIDENT GOT CANDID WITH THE COUNTRY ON COVID-19 INDICATING THAT EVEN WITH A NATIONAL EFFORT TO MITIGATE THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS, 100,000 TO 250,000 AMERICANS COULD LOSE THEIR LIVES IN THE COMING WEEKS AND MONTHS. MEANWHILE SOME HEALTHCARE WORKERS ARE BEING TOLD THEY COULD BE FIRED FOR SPEAKING TO THE PUBLIC AND PRESS ABOUT LACK OF PERSONAL PROTECTION RESOURCES THEY HAVE ACCESS TO.

KIM KARDASHIAN, ATTORNEY IN TRAINING, TWEETED THIS AFTER WATCHING THE DOCU-SERIES TIGER KING:

WELL...CAROL’S BIG CAT RESCUE ACCOUNT REPLIED SAYING, “WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO VISIT ONCE COVID-19 IS OVER TO MEET CAROL.” CAROL’S NOW HUSBAND HOWARD ALSO RESPONDED TO THE SERIES IN A YOUTUBE VIDEO, NOT ONLY SAYING PRODUCERS DIDN’T GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO RESPOND TO ACCUSATIONS CAROL KILLED HER FORMER HUSBAND, BUT THAT THE TWO MAIN PRODUCERS OF THE SHOW LIED TO THEM FROM THE START.

UBER, “A COMPANY THAT MOVES PEOPLE,” IS REMINDING YOU TO STAY HOME WHILE ALSO CONTRIBUTING TO THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19. THEY’RE OFFERING 10 MILLION FREE RIDES AND FOOD DELIVERY TO FRONTLINE HEALTHCARE WORKERS, SENIORS, AND PEOPLE IN NEED. ALSO DISCOUNTED RIDES HAVE MORE SPECIFICALLY BEEN IMPLEMENTED IN CERTAIN CITIES LIKE PHILADELPHIA. HERE'S HOW TO CLAIM YOUR RIDE.
