Effective April 20, York County Community Action Corporation (YCCAC) is no longer requiring passengers to wear masks on board YCCAC buses. Masks are welcome and remain an important preventive measure against COVID-19. Anyone needing or choosing to wear one is encouraged to do so. Passengers are advised that YCCAC may reinstate mask requirements at any time in the future should local, state or federal jurisdictions compel the agency to do so or if such a policy is deemed, by the agency, to best protect the health and well-being of its employees and passengers. This policy change stems from a federal court order as well as changes in policy by United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

Covid restrictions that were previously announced for this Saturday’s bluegrass concert by Southern Rail at the Sanford-Springvale Historical Museum have been dropped. Masks are optional, and proof of vaccination is no longer required.

The Sanford Police received a call for a boa constrictor in someone’s bathroom this week, but it fortunately turned out to be a harmless milk snake. Animal Control Officer Lauren Masellas said native corn and milk snakes are coming out of hibernation now, and looking for mice to eat. Heavy rains, such as we have had this week, also bring them out in search of a dry place to shelter. ACO Masellas recounted how a few years ago she was called to an old farmhouse on Route 4 for a snake in the kitchen, and found about a hundred more in the cellar. “When I shined my flashlight down the cellar stairs, all I could see were eyes,” she said.
