1 – Major US city keeps indoor mask mandate in place despite federal judge ruling against CDC CNBC reports: Philadelphia health officials are keeping the city’s newly reinstated indoor mask mandate in place despite a federal judge’s ruling in Florida that struck down a federal requirement to wear face coverings on public transportation.
The city of brotherly love became the first major city in the U.S. on Monday to reinstate its Covid-19 mask mandate for indoor activities as the highly contagious omicron BA.2 subvariant drives new Covid cases higher across the U.S.
While the ruling may lift Philadelphia’s mask rules on public transportation, the mandate still remains in place for other indoor venues, including restaurants, gyms and businesses.
“We are evaluating the implications of this latest ruling and will provide further clarity around masking on transit in Philadelphia when available. This ruling does not impact the city’s mask mandate for certain indoor places.” James Garrow, director of communications at the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, said in an email to CNBC.

5 – After School Satan Club’ up for vote at elementary school Fox News reports: Educators in Pennsylvania have a major decision ahead of them that goes beyond math and science.
Northern Elementary School in York, Pennsylvania will consider the introduction of an After School Satan Club at Tuesday night’s meeting. The club, which was proposed and pushed by a parent at the school, was initially rejected by the principal. However, the club is now up for a probationary vote at the school board.
“The After School Satan Club is an after-school program that promotes self-directed education by supporting the intellectual and creative interests of students,” the Satanic Temple states on its website.
The Satanic Temple has been making a concerted effort to push into elementary and grade schools in opposition to Christian after-school clubs.
